We were granted a right of way in our deed. When we showed up to get onto our property VIA our granted right of way our neighbors denied it to us. Their deed says nothing about a right of way, but ours does...what can we do and what does this mean?
Real Estate Attorney
It is not unusual for a deed to not mention a right of way. If your deed says you have one, I'll bet you do. Before this becomes a nuclear war, sit down with a real estate lawyer after he or she has received a title search of both properties. Then, when you are armed with facts go and talk with you neighbor. Disarm the hostility now or it will be a constant source of stress.
