Thank you for your post. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
To answer directly, access to your side door cannot be blocked--the neighbor cannot board up your door and bar you from opening it. However if your rear entrance goes solely onto their property, they can refuse access across their property if there is no recorded easement in place, and you have other means of ingress or egress onto the property.
Sincerely,
Dimitry, Esq.
