Just bought a house and my neighbor has a dirt road on my property running next to my house back to their property when there is a dead end main road the length of their property but theres no entrance along it because its wooded for a few feet.

How do i tell this guy im closing his little road and he can go fuck himself? Will i get killed over this? Idk why some hick retard thinks its okay to have his road on his neighbors property right next to my fucking house

Whats wrong with these people? Do i just tell him roads closed time to clear some trees?

You typically aren't allowed. That said make friends with the dude. The friends we made along the way is worth more than a dumb road.

Its literally 10 feet from the side of my house bro i dont want to listen to cars driving by when were innawoods. He should have built a road 500 feet down at the end of the main road

you need to check the records with the city and or county. just because it's your property doesn't mean you can remove a road. they might show up and tell you the road is necessary for fires and force you to pay for a new one

>> No.58267911

>>58267881
But that's the thing, you have no recourse because it's an easement, he's allowed to access his property through yours.

The dirt road literally goes through the fucking lawn. The guy probably just saw a clear path to his property and started taking it while the house was vacant.

>> No.58268182

>>58267881
get the county's survey or have a survey done to see the property lines and any easements (but this is probably unnecessary).
regardless of the title, it's going to be better to talk to him about it and figure out a solution that you can both can agree on without mediation.
and yes it's a shitfest to deal with but probably should have been more careful before you closed on the house.
don't instigate bad blood with a neighbor in a rural setting, you'll end up wasting a lot more time and money over the next few years dealing with eachother than just solving the problem on hand.
tldr probably going to have to clear a new road if that's the only access to his property, do it with a smile on your face otherwise that neighbor is just gonna fuck with you

>> No.58269716

>>58267881
Get a surveyor out there to mark your property line and make sure it isn't an offical easement, sounds like the dude just made his own road next to your house thinking you won't do shit, do something or stay a pathetic victim.

Go to your local big box hardware store and buy a big box of screws and put them in the dirt road, use a magnet on a stick to get them after he gets the idea.

1. Get your hands on the latest survey/Plat of your property. County records office should keep copies.
2. Determine if there was ever an easement agreement (legal document signed by a licensed surveyor)
3. If there wasn't an easement agreement (which is likely) then hire a surveyor to mark the Metes & Bounds of your property and plant flags.
If you road does in fact violate your property boundary then send your neighbor a letter explaining that the road violates your property according to the survey, and that he has 6 months to construct a new driveway. At which time the road will be closed to him and his traffic. If you have an attorney friend that can draft the letter for you even better, but not strictly necessary. You need to structure your plan of action such that if the county judge ever has to look at what you did you come off as a reasonable and fair guy.
Go talk to the roasties at the county clerk's office and complain about how he keeps you awake and drives 60 mph down the road feet away from where your kids sleep. This will turn them against him and you will have an easier time if he tried to resist legally. Local gov offices are staffed by mostly clerk women and if you play your cards right they will gossip about how you're a good guy trying to take care of your family and he's a dangerous dickhead.
This should cost you around $10k for the survey and probably another $5k if it goes to county court.
Godspeed, anon. People act like owning land in the country is a dream, and it can be. But it can also be another form of hell.

I forgot to add that if you think he's okay and not some chip-on-shoulder backwoods retard and can be reasoned with, explain that you don't want to pay for the survey and would instead help him pay for his own driveway and tree work if it would get him to respect your property. If that doesn't work do what I said above.

Check if the road was there before the lot became vacant from older google map pics. I mean everyone should know this already at this point that you can go back in time. Check that, then you will know if this nigger just decided to do this or it was there already during earlier occupants time. If it was i would say shit will hit the fan when you start to mess with it and you will get angry redneck nigger neighbour who will stir up shit all the time because muh road, muh freedom!.

Not a good sign that the dude would rather drive through somone else's property for years than get his own driveway. People who see nothing wrong with this arrangement will fuck with you nonstop, even if it is sorted legally. I'd suggest just selling before you get settled in.

Most people right when they bought property to ruin our local economy put up signs that said "private property do not enter". People ran over the signs until they put up logs that you can't go around.

If you move in and change the people's way of life, you're gonna be an enemy. You might as well expect it. But enemies can coexist peacefully esp white people just live quietly leaving each other alone.

This is why you always get a professional recorded survey of real estate before you take ownership.

>> No.58277977

>>58267881

Go Google the GIS maps for the county your property is located in. Look at the GIS map to see if the neighbor guys property even boarders the road where you say he could just build a driveway. On the GIS it usually tells you the legal description of your property, the legal description may tell you that he has an easement on your property for access to his. Some GIS maps have links to other information like basic building blueprints and site layouts that may give you an idea if there is an easement.

relationships are the most valuable thing in the world, especially out in the country. OP might win the battle (prevent the neighbor from accessing his land) and lose the war (be ostracized by his immediate community)
we are entering into a period in history where established structures are quickly changing OP. IRL community and trust are two of the most valuable things in the world. by burning your neighbor (and ruining your reputation and turning all the neighbors against you) you will be marking yourself as an enemy in their midst. this would not turn out for you.
