GM. Have property that main sewer is next door on neighbor property and need to access to do plumbing work on my property. Neighbor not allowing access. No easement on record.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

NYC

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

Not to my knowledge. I was told that no easement upon review of my title but is it possible easement is on neighbor title?
