My question involves an easement in the state of: Michigan
I live in subdivision on a privately maintained road that was surveyed for a 66 feet easement for all individuals for access to their property. One neighbor that lives on this access and their property also along the access to the Court (with is also surveyed at 66 feet for an easement to three of the properties) of the main easement is calling the police constantly on the other neighbors for trespassing across their access along the Court. They are telling the police that they have grass planted along their section of the Court and that it is being torn up by people using that road.
Just lately one of the neighbors was picking berries (with permission of the landowner) along the Court and they came out yelling that they were calling the police that he was trespassing on their road.
It seems that they are attempting to close of the three properties located along the Court. They have put up stakes and state that it is to protect the grass they are growing and that this area along the road is part of their yard.
Can they close off or claim that portion of the Court (road)?
