    Default Neighborly Accommodation

    I recently sold a home on 2 acres of land in a rural area. While I was living there I gave my neighbor access to a portion of the property alongside the driveway. I did this as a "neighborly accommadation" since it was of no use to me. It is my understanding that this permission ended when I sold the property and that my former neighbor would have to receive permission from the new owner to continue the use of the property.

    My problem is I'm not sure if my former neighbor understands this. I was going to contact him to advise him of this but have now decided to get some legal advice from a lawyer.

    Any comments or suggestions would be appreciated.

    How did you go about giving him permission? Was it in writing, or was it along the lines of a nod and a smile and a "Sure, Joe, you can use that!"?

    How long has he been using the property, and did you inform him when you granted permission that he would have to seek permission anew when you sold it?

    And what has s/he suggested?
    I'm not a lawyer, but I play a researcher on the internet!
