My question involves real estate located in the State of: WA
The parcel I own(A) has the easement portion in the legal description of the title. There is no mention of the word easement.
The parcel that borders mine(B), to the north, has an easement description in its title.
There is a third parcel(C) north of B that has no easement rights and is accessed via the county road.
Think of this like a "d", with a longer straight portion and the county road is at the top of the straight. This would be parcel A, mine.
Parcel B and C have equal sized property between the county road and the "o" in the "d". Only parcel B has an easement right on the straight portion.
First, who holds what type of easement, dominant/servant, etc?
Parcel B's title includes the following;
"A non-exclusive easement be used in common with others for ingress and egress..."
It appears that in WA there is a bill, HB1494, that requires all parties to share in the maintenance of the easement. To date I can not get voluntary participation in any maintenance and this easement becomes impassable, due to mud, in the spring. No emergency vehicles could access the homes!!
What can be done legally?
