My residential property in Maine abuts what is described in my deed as well as other abutters' properties as "a road or way" It is not clear whether this is an old road or a left over right of way. All properties abut this strip but no property taxes have ever been levied for it. It served as the sole access for an old farm behind my property to the main road. The farm has subsequently been sold to a large business entity which did an extensive survey that shows the farm as not including the "road or way" they then sold us a 2 acre parcel which surrounds the end of this road. They have acquired another access to their property. Although my neighbor abuts this road only my property and the farm (150 years old) ever used it.
My question is: can I petition for ownership of this strip and on what basis? (excusive usage, land-locked parcel???)
How would I do it.
