Customer Question

my siblings and I inherited 15.2 acre of land from our grandfather. There was a easement to the property that crossed the railroad of Norfolk Southern. The railroad removed the easement. I have potential buyers of the property but they are concerned about accessibility. How can I get the easement back?

If the easement is needed for entry/exit, it exists as a matter of law, and nothing needs to be done. alternatively, the landlowner may sue for a declaratory judgment from the court holding and recognizing the easement for necessity.
