    Default Re: Property Access

    If no easement was granted across the second property at the time the properties were subdivided, then yes they can deny you access and that would make the property you leased landlocked. So if the second property owner will not now grant you an easement, your only option would be to have the landlord file a quiet title lawsuit and ask the court to grant an easement by necessity. Since landlocked property is not in the public interest and the two parcels were under common ownership, the court would likely grant the easement. But that is an expensive route to take.

    You should be talking to your landlord about resolving the problem.
