The neighbour took the position that he had access because he lived longer on the street and told the buyer, “Make sure your men don`t park in the driveway,” the officer said. A relief may stipulate that each owner owns part of the access, but has the right to use the full space to go to and from the garage, according to Nolo.com, a leading legal website since 2011. Other times, an owner owns the entire driveway, and relief gives the neighbour who shares the driveway the right to use part of it, such as side parking or access to the garage. Marshall, Roth-Gregory, a law firm in Asheville, North Carolina that manages real estate planning and real estate transactions, said real estate agents should pay attention to these “shared access issues” before the property list and before closing. Regardless of how the common entrance was used earlier, owners and users should record their ownership limits, responsibilities and costs in a document such as a public transit agreement, say these lawyers. Facilities are registered within the county where a property is located, so a title report or real estate survey should determine the ownership rights of a potential buyer.
