Thank you for your patience. Your neighbour should not be blocking your easement. If the right of way is not disputed and they are not willing to open the gate and to give you a set of keys then you may have no option but to formally make an application to Court for an injunction order requiring them to either remove the locks or to give you a key. You should send them a letter before action warning of this if time is not of the essence but if you are wanting to sell now without delay you can apply for an urgent injunction order and claim your costs from the neighbour if you succeed.
Any follow up please do not hesitate to send your message. We are always glad to clarify and assist further. Thank you for contacting just answer. All the best.
