    Default Rejected Access to an Existing Easement

    My question involves an easement in the state of: California

    I have enjoyed access to a friendís land for over 20 years through a particular easement. Five years ago I purchase the property adjacent to their land and have continued accessing both properties through this easement. This easement includes a locked gate. The owner of the property with the locked gate has recently changed the combination and instructed us to access our property through a different easement that also includes locked gates. Does the owner of the property with this easement/gate have any right to deny us access through this easement?

    The easement you want to use is a deeded easement? And the property you own is the dominant estate for the easement you want to use?

    There are other properties that use this easement, so I doubt that our property would be primary and I have never seen anything in writing so I doubt that it is a deeded easement.

    If you are using your friends easement to access your land, you are trespassing.
