Hello, My deed states that the street I live on is a Dedicated Private Rd. What does that mean exactly? Issue: I live in a neighborhood that has a homeowners association. They widened the road and took off about 3-4 feet of the property line. They do not have easement rights to my property. None, zippo, 0. The neighbor hood is a very old neighborhood established back in 1925. None of the roads in the area are 30ft wide. They claim they have the rights to widen the road and access my property. The street does not have engineering specifications at the county or township level, because of the private road status. The street I live on has been about 18 ft wide (rural, no traffic, only 2 other houses) since time begin. Advice?
