Was the width of the easement eight feet in total (maybe four on each property) or was it 8 feet on the neighbors' property? By you saying common driveway that leads me to think maybe 4 on each side and both people use the 8 feet (shared). The lack of use of the easement would not generally mean it is extinguished without some other agreement to that effect - simply not using it is not usually enough. Does the easement allow for parking or is it just for driveway use? I do not quite understand the bricks, but I would say that would probably not be covered by a driveway easement, but you would have to read the language to be sure (same as to the parking). Having theeasement removed or made null and void would require either agreement from the neighbor (you could do a new easement or a modification of the easement) or a court case against the neighbor. Modifying the easement should not be too expensive (maybe $1,500.00 depending on how much drafting and negotiaion is involved) while suit could be quite costly.
