We are one of three homes on a large lake that share a private road easement across a neighbor's property. This easement has been in place for over 40 years. Over the lastfew years, 2 trees have grown sloping into the road, along with deep underbrush on both sides. We have been notified by the fire department/ambulance and UPS, that their trucks can no longer come down the road to our property. Who is responsible for maintaining the easement for the purpose of access?
All of us lakefront property owners are retired and might well need ambulance service at any time. Furthermore, forest fire incidence has grown sharply in the last ten years. We need access via the easement both for the Quick Response Unit as well as the fire truck. Our insurance company does not know about this situation, but if they were to find out, they would probably refuse to insure these large vacation homes.
