My grand father is part owner of the land and he is fine with us using it.
Would it be better if I posted a pic of the land so you can better see?
red is my proposed acre
the white is a gravel road
the black is a dirt road
the house is the one uncle. the road is clearly outside his land
ok I never seen the easement documentation. He is saying that the easement only extends to his lot. But my surveyor says that my uncles lot is only separated for tax reasons and he never submitted paperwork for his deed so I don't see how it is possible that the easement only extends to his property especially since the road was there before he put his house there, and his land is still not soley his.
im inclined to think there is an easement in place. Looking at the tax map you can clearly see the road is attached to my grandfathers land. on older tax maps the boundary lines do not extend to the public road. If I click on the road the info shows that land in my grandfathers family name.
What steps should I take before I push forward.
If the land is in my grandfather and 3 other brothers names would I need all four brothers written acknowledgement,
Or can my grandfather give me written permission to cross his land to get to the land that will now be mine.
No, any one of them could give you permission to use the road since it is on their property.
Yes, he can do that as well.
so if one owner gives us permission to cross his land. can the other owner protest this?
In your expert opinion what steps should we take to insure we will have worry free access to our land?
If there is an easement from another owner will I have to have written permission from that owner also or will that easement transfer with the land.
