Re: Who Owns an Abandoned Township Road
they own what their deed says they own. You own what your deed says you own.
You have two things going on here the you need to describe:
you stated other property owners have an easement
there is a public ROW.
who owns the land under the ROW
the other's easement is for what? are they the servient or dominant tenants of the easement? If dominant, who is the servient tenant? If they are the servient, who is the dominant tenant,
and just because there is a ROW for a road, it doesn't mean the municipality is or has exercised their rights granted by that ROW. If they haven't, then it is not open to the public. Just because it is on a map doesn't mean it is claimed as an actual road by the municipality involved.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
