My question involves real estate located in the State of: Minnesota Just wondering about an easement issue that i am having on a piece of property that i bought last year and am having conflict with now my new neighbor. I purchased a house and there was a private road running down the east side of the property the person i bought the land and the house from had gates installed on the private road and always had them closed because of trespass issues. When i purchased the land he asked for an easement to an empty lot behind my house threw the private road i saw no issue so i agreed now that we have closed on the property he ripped the gate out and moved a house back on the lot and i have fought with him to reinstall the gate as i have issues with multiple trespassers. He finally installed the gate and now that i try to keep it shut he has filed a lawsuit against me saying i have locked the gate and that i am blocking him from the easement. I have never locked it only put a clip to hold it shut and the gate had been there for years before his new house was. Does he have any leg to stand on now that i am just trying to keep other people off the property and is there anything i can do about him leaving the gate open or tampering with the gate? All the easement says is (reserving in favor of the grantors, their heirs and assigns, an easement for roadway purposes over and across the east 66 feet of the property) Please Help he has now been driving recklessly through the property and has harassed my wife and kids on multiple occasions starting to be a real issue he has tampered with the gate more than once i need some info.
