1. As a homeowner, you would probably assume that you’re purchasing the land around your home, front yard, back yard and driveway. But that’s not always the case. Often, when you review the preliminary title report, you may discover that someone actually has a right-of-way through your property. This is common in the case of a long driveway or a home that may be set back from the street. It could have been that in order for a neighboring home to have been built, that property’s owner negotiated with a previous owner to gain a right-of-way through the front of the parcel or driveway for the home you are buying. In this scenario, you own the land, but the owner of the neighboring property has been granted right to pass through your property. In some instances, the previous owner might have been compensated for granting this access. The important thing to know is that easement carries over when a new owner assumes the property.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who owns the right of way over the driveway?

The facts. The property owner to the north (N) owned the driveway that the right of access crossed over. The southern property owner (S) had the benefit of a right of way over that driveway to get to his property. In 1997, S built a low stone wall (which a pedestrian could step over) along the boundary of his property to the driveway’s boundary.

What to do if your driveway is not 100 percent Yours?

If you’re the homeowner who needs access to a neighboring property, or you discover that the driveway or walkway to your home is actually not 100 percent yours, there’s usually nothing you need to do. It’s just important to be aware of these conditions, and that this is not entirely your land.

Does Someone have a right-of-way through my property?

Often, when you review the preliminary title report, you may discover that someone actually has a right-of-way through your property. This is common in the case of a long driveway or a home that may be set back from the street.

Can a neighbor plow your driveway with a right of way?

In cases of rights of way easements for driveways, which are fairly common in some parts of the country, you and the neighbor must figure out maintenance issues. Maybe the back neighbor always plowed the driveway for the former owner of your property when it snowed, so this right of way could have its benefits.
