Blocking an easement
Question Details: My property has a 30’ easement through someone else's property. They dump their garbage on it, or beside it, and have recently blocked half of it with huge piles of trees and stumps. It severely reduces the value of my land and reduces the width of my entrance. Do I have any legal options?
I am not admitted in Georgia. Much litigation in the courts on easements comes from Georgia and Georgia is a bit more protective of the servient estate (your neighbor) than most states would be. But regardless, you (the dominant estate) needs have priority.
You need to see a real estate or real property attorney in your area about sending a letter to put them on notice of the condition and that is restricts your right of way. Bring a copy of the deed with the easement language. Take pictures if you can of the condition as it is and when it changes. Usually actions that involve easements are to "quiet title" meaning that they ask the court affirm or reaffirm the rights of the parties to the property. It may all depend on how much of the road they are blocking, if it is a constant condition, etc. Good luck.
