The property still belongs to you. The easement means that you shouldn't be planting or putting anything permanent in there, as the city/town/community could come along and do what they wanted with it.

Your neighbor is trying to claim easement through all the exisiting roads on your property in tne 18 years that he has owned his property he has never used them he has a r-o-w on the main road does he?

There are many reasons your neighbor might have an easement over one or more roads on your property. Once that easement has vested (he owns it), he has no particular obligation to exercise it, but must protect it from being revoked by others. However, in many cases the neighbor is completely mistaken that he has any property right in the easement at all, having once used the roads with the owner's permission, and that license was simply terminated. Question whether the neighbor would have any proof of ownership of the easement, if you were to file a lawsuit to quiet title.

Would access to an easement end for nonuse?

Generally, no. The easement is a property right, not a personal right, so it exists regardless of who owns the property or how they use it. However, an easement CAN be lost if someone blocks it and no action is taken within the prescribed time, and this might happen if nobody notices the blockage because the easement is not being used.


Can a neighbor make you take trees down that are within your own boundary line?

A neighbor cannot make you cut a tree down. BUT if your tree encroaches on a neighbor's property, causes a risk to a neighbor or their property, or causes a situation that prevents a neighbor from full enjoyment of their property, the neighbor can ask a court to make you cut back the limbs that are causing problems for their property. Your rights end where the property line begins; same for your neighbor.

Can a landlocked neighbor obtain an easement through my property even though it does not exist on the parcel map mine was purchased prior to his?

First of all, I assume when you say "it does not exist on the parcel map" you mean "an easement does not exist on the parcel map." In most states, your neighbor could sue you for an "easement of necessity" across your property. Generally an easement of necessity requires that your properties have a common grantor (i.e. they were both owned by the same person at one time and subdivided by that person). A real estate attorney in your area will know your state's laws and can give you guidance with your specific situation.

We own an easement and tHE OTHER PROPERTY OWNER BLOCKS THE EASEMENT IS THIS LEGAL WHAT ARE MY RIGHTS?

An easement is a property right, and unauthorized blocking of your easement is a trespass. You can have the blockage removed by court order, if necessary. Local law enforcement is often understandably reluctant to become involved in a civil dispute.For example, if your neighbor blocks your shared driveway with a vehicle on private property, and refuses to move it upon polite request, your next call is to a lawyer, not to the police. If it is blocking on the public street, then (in some places) the police will tag and tow the vehicle regardless of who owns the property or the vehicle.

What does a perpetual non-exclusive easement mean?

An "easement" is a legal right to use the property owned by another person (i.e. the person who granted the easement). An easement is usually created by a recorded document, whether a deed or an easement agreement. The purpose of the easement (for example, a driveway or a walking path) is whatever permitted use is stated in the easement document. The fact that the easement is "perpetual" means that the easement has no term and will continue indefinitely. An easement that is "non-exclusive" simply is an easement that someone else may also use. This might mean the person who granted the easement or whoever else may be identified in the easement document. The easement document should state who else may use the easement. A perpetual easement usually "runs with the land", meaning that the easement continues in effect regardless of whether the property benefited by the easement is sold or if the property burdened by the easement is sold.


Easement was given 20 years ago on a property we just purchased can i build a wall on the other side of the easement line?

Your question requires a lot more detail. Generally, you cannot build a wall that would restrict access to the area of the property subject to the easement. An easement allows people other than the owners of property to use the property for a specific purpose (commonly easements are granted to give neighboring property owners access to a road). If you recently purchased the property subject to the easement you are not allowed to build a wall which would restrict the easement owner's access to the property.If you are asking if you can construct a wall on the other side of an easement upon property you do not own, the answer is no. You have the right of egress and possibly to maintain it, but does not give you the right to construct a wall on the ajoining property outside of the easement which you do not own.See discussion page.
