Hello. Thank you for the question. It is my pleasure to assist you with this today.
Please bear with me as I will be online and off-line from time to time and therefore, may be delayed getting back to you. You will receive an email when I reply.
Are these new neighbours saying no access?
if not why is the issue arising now?
Do you have a plan of the layout please? It’s not apparent what is what. I would need a bit of narrative on the plan to explain where the problem is.
This meanwhile, a lot depends on what your mother needs this access because under the Access to Neighbouring Land Act she is entitled to reasonable access over the neighbouring property if it’s needed to preserve/maintain her property.
I see that this is in Scotland. You didn’t mention that. The more with regard to access could well be completely different because the majority of Scottish land law bears no relation to England. I will opt out for another expert. Please don’t reply because if you do the question returns to my inbox as requiring my attention and it will slowdown any other expert replying to you. Thank you
