Response: You can try to get your neighbor to sell or grant you access/easement. If your neighbor is unwilling to do this, then you would need to get the Court involved. You would need to file lawsuit to force your neighbor to grant you access to the property. If this access is necessary because you have a landlocked property, then this would be easement of necessity and you would also be ordered by the Court to pay something to your neighbor for this access. Also and more importantly, because you have used the access for over 70 years, the Court may declare that you have implied easement to the property.
