Thank you for using JA. I am Loren, a licensed attorney for over 30 yrs., and I am here to help.
I appreciate your patience as I review your question. I will post my response shortly.
This is general information and no attorney client relationship is established.
The site may ask you if you wish to speak by phone for an extra charge. The offer is not from me. While I am happy to speak to you, there is no obligation for you to accept the phone call offer, unless you want. I am also happy to continue online. So, there is no pressure to spend extra money.
Are you asking if they can use the easement area of your property for uses not included in the original easement agreement?
Thank you for the additional information.
No, an easement is only a right to use the the property for the specific uses in the easement agreement. If the easement agreement is only for utilities and access then that is all they can do and any other use is a breach and abuse of the easement.
Your first step is to send them a cease and desist letter demanding the stop using the easement for unauthorized activity.
If they refuse then you can remove any property of theirs not authorized to be on your property and sue them for money damages for their breach of the easement.
Please remember to leave a favorable rating (click 5 stars in the rating section on this page). It is the only way that I am credited by JustAnswer for answering your question.
There is no additional charge to you for rating me favorably.
Thank you for following up with me.
That is something you can address in your lawsuit and would be a potential measure of damages.
Then appeal to your neighbor's sense of family. There is no way to force them to share if they refuse, other than taking them to court.
Also, you want to be careful about doing nothing, as that could prejudice your rights to object down the road. So, at least send the cease and desist letter.
You are very welcome. Thank you for using JA.
