So we just closed on this house, as is. We chose to get a house over an apartment right now to have a yard we could fence off for our dog.
The previous owners were using the small backyard to park in, and it was entirely gravel. We planned to turn it into a lawn and seed it for grass, fence it off, and just park in the long driveway.
We found out today that there is a permanent easement allowing our next door neighbor (whose entire property is overgrown and filled with junk) unblocked access to use our driveway to be able to park in a small cleared off spot next to their house. This would mean we would not be able to park in the driveway, fence off the back yard, or, since we will have to park back there, have a yard at all. Is there anything that can be done?
