Can my neighbor block me from using an easement?

Posted by Ashleigh Beer-Vineyard | Oct 20, 2023 | 0 Comments

The answer to this question depends on the specific terms of the easement and the laws in your jurisdiction. Generally, an easement is a legal right that allows someone (the easement holder) to use a portion of another person's property for a specific purpose. Easements are often granted for access, such as a shared driveway or a right of way across a property.

If you have a legally established and recorded easement granting you the right to use a portion of your neighbor's property, they cannot block you from using it. Doing so would be a violation of your legal rights, and you may have grounds to take legal action against your neighbor to enforce the easement.

However, it's essential to consult with a qualified property dispute attorney in your area to fully understand your rights and options regarding the easement. Reach out to DZ Law today and allow our experienced property dispute attorneys to review the specific details of your case and provide guidance on how best to proceed if your neighbor is blocking your use of the easement.
