My question involves an easement in the state of: Texas
My wife received a 5 ac. parcel of land (and 3 other family members also recieved adjacent 5 ac parcels) that was landlocked after the passing of her grandfather. We intend to build on this land and a 30 foot easement was filed along with the deed. The first problem is, the easement was placed ontop of property that a pipeline company already had a easement on it and said we are not allowed to have our easement on it (which has already been filed.) We've talked to the surveyor to have it moved beside the pipeline easement but are unsure how to get this refiled. A third problem is that the land owners on which the easement was (and will be) placed on say we can't gravel the easement (even though the property is difficult for my 4x4 f250 to drive at times). Last, is there a way to get this easement converted to a private road due to multiple land owners using it for access? THANK YOU so much in advance!
1. Can our easement be located ontop of the pipeline's easement?
2. What do we need to do to have the ammended survey applied to the deed?
3. Can we put gravel down on the easement in order to access our property?
4. Is there a way to have the easement converted to a private road by the county due to multiple land owners needing access?
