There are six homeowners on dead end lane. The road becomes very bad with pot holes during the winter. Can the users of the easement maintain the road as would be expected. The easement is 14 feet wide between six 1 acre lots. One home owner at the beginning of the easement is encroaching 5 feet into the easement with his bushes and trees and will not allow up to fill in the potholes to to point where people don't want to come down our driveway. Can we maintain the easement by filling in the potholes even though the owner says we cant fill in the potholes without his permission or touch his bushes and trees that encroach and cause scratches. There are two surveys showing the encroachment..Do I have the right to maintain an easement (trim bushes/trees and fill in the big potholes) to a reasonable degree when the owner refuses to?
