1.the right is noted on the property title.
2. It only appears to intrude because the right of way was moved by mutual agreement over twenty years ago for a previous owner to be able to park his caravan at the back of his garden. to do this the access was moved by 24" but was never registered with the land registry officially. I can however produced witnesses to confirm this.
Yes it is correct that the shed does not impede access.
The original owner and his wife has unfortunately passed away but I know that I would have the full cooperation of all five of his sons who I can still contact if need be. Would this make my situation less sticky?
