Customer Question

I live on property (small acre Deschutes Co. OR) bought by my son and I have used a driveway here for 91/2 years. The owner next door of similar property (unimproved until 4months ago) now claims that the driveway encroaches on his property and intends to build a fence that would stop me from using "driveway". His answer would be to totally remove a building that existed before his property purchase, which he claims would give me room for driveway.
Are there legal rights of long term usage?

No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site.

I am sorry to hear about this situation. First, can you please clarify - does the driveway encroach on his property? Or, it does not? Or, you are not sure? Has a survey been done?
