My question involves an easement in the state of: CALIFORNIA (BERKELEY / OAKLAND)
1. I am purchasing a house. My driveway encroaches on the neighbor's property by a foot.
2. The driveway is paved and has been there for 10 years.
3. There has never been a paper agreement to let my house (my future house) encroach on the other house by this foot. I guess it's just always been implied. It has been stated at times, but never formally.
Do I have any legal rights to keep my driveyway the width that it is? Or can my new neighbor require me to decrease the width by a foot?
Thanks in advance! Much karma will come your way for your assistance. I have an unlimited amount of it to send to you
