In PA, I understand that squatters have rights after 22 years of unprotested use. My question is the opposite. If my neighbor hasn't used a deeded right in over 100 years, does it survive?
My property was the result of a split of a larger parcel around 1865. The owner (who kept the other piece) reserved the right to take timber and rock from what became my property. Both properties have changed hands many times since then and current deeds do not mention the issue. Conversley, I have not found a revocation in the deed trail either. To my knowledge, no timber or rock has ever been removed. Does the original 1865 language survive giving the current neighbor a right to take timber and rock from my property or, has non-use or some other standard erased the right?
Thanks in advance.
