We have a driveway easement listed on the Deed of Trust in North Carolina. The easement allows us to access our landlocked house from the back yard. The owner of the lot that the easement sits on is in the process of building a gated fence across the easement. We did not approve of the gate. Was she required to get our agreement to build the fence? We do not particularly want a gated fence in the middle of our easement--do we have any say in this matter?
One more thing, it is a third neighbor that took it upon himself to build the six foot high brick columns to support the gate. He did not get permission from the owner of the property--he thought the pillars would look "nice," so he built them. Is he guilty of trespass?
