My house includes a staircase to the street - my only access to the street. My neighbors have been using my staircase for 10+ years to gain access to their properties. When I purchased the house 6 years ago, no easements (prescriptive or otherwise) were disclosed to me. Is it still valid in this case? Clearly, had it been disclosed I would have acted on it sooner. Why should I now have to pay increased insurance premiums to cover myself for liability when the law prevents me from protecting my own land? This is nuts.
