A stairway exist on private property that appears to have been built by the city but is not contained within a public ROW or easement. The stairway has been in place and in use for about 15 years. It is intended to be used as a short connecting segment for a pedestrian pathway connection between public ROW streets and crosses over private property. Does this fall under the prescriptive easement classification and must now remain in place if the city chooses to keep it or does the property owner have the right to remove the staircase that was improperly built outside of the easement corridor.
Residential property is real estate that has been developed or zoned to be used for living, such as single family houses, apartments or mobile home parks.
An easement is a right to enter or use someone else's property for a specific reason. It remains in force even if the property is sold and is also transferable.
