My question involves real estate located in the State of: Connecticut
The house we are looking to buy was built in the 1880's and has very little land, there is a driveway that is almost like a road, it basically runs the length of two side streets. The realtor (seller side) said the drive was shared and that we would need permission to continue to use the driveway. We talked to the Neighbors (owner of the other house) and they claimed they didn't own the driveway and that the state-owned it and used it as a throughway. We went to the town hall and dug up all the deeds back to the 1880's, talked to the town officials and were told that basically no one owned the land that the driveway was on, not the neighbor, not the owner of the house we wanted to buy and not the state. I have tried to look online and can't find anything that deals with this type of issue. There is easements, no agreements verbally or written between the two owners, absolutely nothing. Thoughts?
