Customer Question

I live on property (small acre Deschutes Co. OR) bought by my son and I have used a driveway here for 91/2 years. The owner next door of similar property (unimproved until 4months ago) now claims that the driveway encroaches on his property and intends to build a fence that would stop me from using "driveway". His answer would be to totally remove a building that existed before his property purchase, which he claims would give me room for driveway.
Are there legal rights of long term usage?

I am sorry to hear about this situation. First, can you please clarify - does the driveway encroach on his property? Or, it does not? Or, you are not sure? Has a survey been done?
