I have a question as a land owner. If a person has a if the deed states that another party has a right of way on your property what rights does that other party have. I realize it depends on what the exact phrasing but what if it states, something like the "second party is granted a 30 foot right of way running across the northerly across the property"? Lets also say this is the only wording in the deed and it refers to an old logging road on the property.
In this instance I am not trying to dispute a right of way only find out what rights exist in this situation. For example does the second party have the right to put up utility poles even though they are not mentioned in the right of way agreement? May he pave the old road? My understanding of a right of way would be that it would be just for egress since is does not have and easement for utilities and that the road could be maintained but not improved. So what rights do exist in this situation where the only wording is that a right of way exists? Please exuse any typo's
