Many thanks for your response - it is most reassuring. Can you tell though how to enact a prescriptive servitude? Will this involve engaging a solicitor or can we just carry on as per normal and if he berates us we can quote this particular right of law?
Sorry to be a bother with more questions but we really do not want confrontation and would rather have some meaningful dialogue with the new owner now rather than drag things out.
Thanks again for your help
