No papers signed.

They placed it further back than the needed to keep from having to find me to go further if they needed. So the easement in on my property all the way to the back of my pproperty. A new owner bought the adjoining property which has more access to the cul-de-sac and paved road than my property has. Now he wants to pave the easement which is entirely on my property without my permission and has pushed tings on my property over saying that he has a right because of the easement. If the easement is entirely on my property, don't I have the rightto say that he can't pave it?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: Charleston, SCJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: Such as what?
