This is one of the primary reasons that I advise clients never to purchase half of a split double or properties that utilize common areas that actually affect the structure. You are always going to have problems like this. You asked for my "thoughts", and I'm thinking that if fighting it means you wish to terminate their easement of access, you really have no chance of winning that in court, so save your money.
If the easement is not qualified or limited to being used only when you are present, you can insert that qualification now, but it will require the consent of the neighbor.
