Customer Question

I have property that is surrounded by other neighbors and a road that has been used for 50 plus years and the new neighbor said he didn't have to give me or anyone else a right of way through his property.
JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: Virginia
JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?
Customer: Yes
JA: What advice did they give you?
Customer: He said that after 20 years of continuous use there should not be a problem getting an easement and I should be real nice to the other neighbor.
JA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?
Customer: I know he has a right to put up the two gates he's installed and can lock them and I can then install cattle guards at my own expense to keep the road open
