The easement actually applies to 3 properties that at one time were one.However, only my neighbour uses it, as he has a small square of land outside of his property that he cannot access in any other way.
The problem is he wants access at any time, with out asking. It means we cannot look our gate (unless we supply him with key) We cannot leave our dog in the garden unsupervised. We could be having a barbeque and he walks straight through us. This patch of land is not his main garden and he actually spends very little time there. But is demanding 100% free access at any time. Also the path he uses is right next to 2 sides of our house - open view to our lounge and dining area.
