I have 2.5 acres in a desert area near Palm Springs Ca. The land measures 660 ft by 165 feet. The land is a long rectangle and runs north to south.
There is a shallow ravine that runs through the property, dividing it into a north and south section. This ravine floods every few years.
In order to get to the rear of the property I've used a dirt roadway that runs parrallel to the property line on my neighbors vacant land and extends about 30 feet wide along the property line. The ravine runs through his land also.
I have just found out that the neighbor adjacent to the north section of my property has apparently bought the section that adjoins the south section, where this road is.
I have had an ongoing fued with this person for 2 years because of his barking dogs that bark for hours on end at night. He is not amenable to any solution.
The owner of that land has always said that he would never sell, and I asked him to let me know if he ever did want to sell, but I have lost contact with him.
There is no access to the north section unless this roadway is used.
My question is what rights do I have, or what rights can I assert to keep using this roadway to get to the north section?
