Although I agree with the advice to make a deal with the
neighbor, I doubt that he would invest any money, so my next question is, should we notify him in writing to the effect that the driveway is on our property and that we are not giving him permission to do any digging or modification?
Is it preferable to have the letter sent by an attorney? These questions refer to the original message

"The dirt driveway to our rural New York State
vacation home is the only access our neigh-
bor across from us has to his property. He
said he wants to dig up the driveway and lay
fresh water pipes for the house he will build.
We don't want to give him permission.
What course of action do you recommend?"

If I have a question or comment related to an
answer to my posting, am I supposed to reply in the same thread or post a new question as I did above?
