Good morning. I am Loren, a licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you.
What are the demands being made by the neighbor to resolve this?
Thank you for the additional information. I am sorry to hear of your dilemma. I realize how frustrating this is for you and I hope to provide you information which is accurate and useful, even though it may not be the news you were hoping to get.
Unfortunately, no, you cannot give an easement to someone without their acceptance. In other words, you would need their signature. You may want to try offering a nominal payment (say $500) to them to accept your easement, and allow your sale to proceed. That is one of the of the interesting things about real estate disputes. There are few real estate problems which cannot be solved by throwing money at them.
While paying $500 may seem distasteful, if it is stopping the sale then it may be worth it. My philosophy is not to let a dime hold up a dollar.
Are you still online with me?
Did you have further questions? Have I answered your question?
Glad to hear it was resolved successfully for you.
