I am happy to wait a bit longer
Could I add a little more detail. My neighbours do have their own vehicle and foot access 50 yds further up the road, so this is not their only access. This path is just a means of getting into town 30 seconds quicker.
Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Sorry you have had to wait for so long for an answer.
Firstly, your neighbour of course has a right of way ove rhte path, even though he may have other accesses available to him.
The wording in the right "with all others who have or may hereafter have the like right" does not mean anyone can use it. It means that any other property that has been granted a similar right of way has a right to use the path.
I am not sure if you have a copy of your Deeds to hand, but they will show which other property/properties also have this right of way.
You obviously know the length of the path better than I do, but I can only guess that perhaps that only your neighbour's neighbour will have this right at the most.
I hope this assists you and sets out the legal position.
thank you for your reply, I am not concerned that it took a little time.
This is exactly what I suspected, the only bit I was unsure about was "in common with all others". You are quite correct there is another neighbour involved as this path feeds two properties, both of which have their own vehicle and pedestrian access. As I said I am very happy for the neighbours to use this path as I was aware of this arrangement when I bought the property, but it is very helpful to know that this it not a thoroughfare for anyone
many thanks for your help
