My question involves real estate located in the State of: Pennsylvania
1. Father owns 235 acres of land that has been in the family's name for more than a century. A near 50/50 mix of farm and forest land.
2. Approximately 5 years ago, Father sold 10 acres of forest land to a friend and his wife. The 10 acres are landlocked inside Father's property with no public roads accessing it. Just a logging road through Father's property. Right of way was not put into the deed for these 10 acres. The right of way was agreed separately between Father and friend through an easement. It was intentionally left out of the deed to discourage friend/wife from selling their 10 acres to other people that he did not know.
3. Father dies three years ago, Daughter inherits the 225 acres. Friend who bought the 10 acres also dies soon after and the 10-acre property then belongs to just his wife.
4. The Wife of the deceased friend sells the 10 acres to someone else this past July.
Does the easement agreement between father and friend transfer to these new owners of the 10 acres? Can we legally deny any all access for the new owners to reach their landlocked property?
As you can suspect from the questions, we are already having issues with these new owners, something exactly that Father wanted to prevent.
