I live in Vermont and own a piece of property which is crossed by a right of way to my neighbor's property. They are making some changes to their house that require a mortgage. They say that the bank requires that they have a signed document from me stating that they maintain the driveway. I have consistently made sure it is plowed in the winter and dragged in the summer each year. I have heard that a landowner who does not care for the right of way can end up with the easement being declared abandoned and losing it to the landlocked neighbor. I have been searching VT statutes on this and have found little that even discusses private right of way issues.
Can you help?
