Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello I am a solicitor with over 15 years experience. I will try to help you with this. I am afraid this is out of date law and has not been in force since 2006. Can you tell me a bit more please. What sort of access have you had and for how long?
the access has been on foot for over 100 years and by vehicle for about 5 years by my tenants and his own tenants. he has gated off the access and given his tenants as pass code but not my tenants and is demanding 6000 pa
I would be grateful if you would give me bit of time to a bit more research on this. At the moment I can think of no reason why he couldn't charge for access but I want to check before saying this for sure.
I have looked into his further and spoken to a colleague who is very knowledgeable on these issues and I am afraid that there is no rule that gives you a right to vehicular access. The provision you refer to has been repealed.
