Agreements like this are often found in rural subdivisions. This is legal under the Property Law Act and the Land Transfer Act. However if the benefit of this agreement is no use to you, you would need to apply to court to cancel or vary the terms of the easement which this is tied to. Of course, you can ask the neighbours if they will agree to cancellation, but if they dont agree then you can make the court application. There are cases about cancellation and variation, but they are fact ependent and the statute provides what you need by way of remedy.
