I've been watching this board for over a year now and posting now and then.
The post about Preplanning for shared driveway issues got me wondering if I'm the only one here who would never buy property with a ROW again after what I've been through(and compared to others it's not much!)
So the question to you experienced posters is "knowing what you know would you buy property that has a ROW, either one that you use or one that crosses your property?"
for me it comes down to the lack of help from the authorities that is deal breaker. We constantly have problems with neighbors parking in the ROW, the part that they own. Most times there is room for us to squeeze by them but that's besides the point, if they aren't supposed to park there then they aren't supposed to. Delivery trucks and emergency vehicles would never be able to get by them. We have complained to the building inspector many times but nothing seems to happen. He mentioned once that maybe we should have our lawyer send them a letter stating that parking in the ROW is not allowed, but I thought that was what we paid taxes for.
Ok I've rambled enough, what do others think about doing a ROW property again?
