My question involves real estate located in the State of: Kentucky
Attempted to add pictures but couldn't, it took me from "insert image" to "add URL"..
My Home was built in 1937 which appears to be the same year the building next door was built. My father owned and lived in the house since around 1980, I now own the home since 2010.. The home has a 10' wide access easement marked on the deed that runs from the public road to the full length of my property which ends just past my small 1 car garage at which point the easement dead ends into a brick wall. It doesn't say anything other than the dimensions and access easement.
Because of no parking spots on the street (rarely are there spots available), my father and I and other members of the home have openly parked our cars on the easement since the 1980's consistently and without the endorsement of the property owners. Over the years the property at which the easement resides has changed hands at least 3 or 4 times. It was brought to my attention yesterday via a letter from an attorney that the property has a new owner and we are to no longer park on the access easement. I believe I'm the only one on our street without an actual driveway.
Without the easement, we would have to park on another block and that would be a long way away from my home. Do I have any right to continue parking on the access easement? Is there any law prohibiting me from doing so? Should I write the attorney back?
