23 years ago my mother-in-law sold us 30 acres on the northwest corner of her 160 acres. She gave us an easement with the purchase price but told us to use the existing roadway that ran adjacent to the easement because putting in the expressed easement would take out part of the farmland. Recently, ( within the last 5 years or so ), she sold a parcel to her granddaughter and husband that overlaps the road we were directed to use when we purchased our property. Do we have the legal right to continue to use the existing roadway we have been using for 23 years or can the granddaughter and husband restrict our use?JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IllinoisJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: we recently had the property surveyed and the property line currently runs on part of the existing roadway.

We live on a private road. There is a one page document of rules or bylaws for the neighborhood that was written in 1970 and is not legible. There are only about 11 houses up on this ridge and spaced a deal apart. There are also vacant wooded lots. We live outside of city limits and have a small chicken coop and some chickens. Someone complained. We received a visit requesting that we call the lady who owns our road as well as many of the vacant lots regarding the rules of the neighborhood. If we refuse to get rid of the chickens and that is what she wants what kind of recourse does she have. She is older and apparently not well. The son is the person who came by and stated that he didn't care about the chickens.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: IndianaJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: We unfortunately have several roosters that we were planning to get rid of because we did not want to be un-neighborly and we are happy to do that but I am not so sure that is going to resolve the issue since these bylaws say "poultry". They are kept in our backyard and the coop/chickens cannot be seen from the back.
