What is the name of your state?What is the name of your state? Massachusetts
We purchased our house 3 years ago. In the early 1900's an easement was granted by the owner of our house for the neighbor to pass over the driveway to access parking on their property. So, the situation functions like a shared driveway with us driving down and veering off to the left into our spots and they veering off to the right into their spots (which fall on their property).
I think they are abusing the easement. In 1988 they turned their house into a three family so they have tenants in their attic and in their basement each of whom have a car. In addition, the neighbors have two cars and a boat. This is quite a bit of traffic travelling up and down the driveway each day. We have a small child so of course it worries me to have so many cars around.
The neighbors are awful landlords so their tenants don't stay very long, so there are always new people coming and going and often they don't appear to have been informed by their landlords that they are to "pass over our driveway" into their spots as is stated in the easement.
The easement is deeded in that it passes to heirs and assigns. I am SURE that back in the early 1900's the person who decided to grant this easement never imagined that the grantees would be (ab)using it to the hilt.
Do we have any remedies?
