I am purchasing a home on 1/3 acre.. It is located in a private gated community. Prior to the owner I am buying it from, the community owned the home as a rental unit. According to the map the community built a “utility road” through my property when the property belonged to them. The road goes to a utilities complex (water and electic facility), and can be accessed through 2 entrances, this one and another entrance on the road behind it.
I will be paying HOA fees and taxes on the property and don’t feel I should have to pay for the portion the community uses for their private business.So i don’t want to have to pay fees on that portion Or I want the road shut down to their use,as there is 1 other entrance that can be used instead…
How do I go about finding out the information I need on this?
Can anyone give me an idea of how I can get this straightened out or at least find out if a legal easement exists..
If no legal easement in writing exists, is there anything that can be done to get the land back or make my HOA fees and taxes less because I don’t have access to that part of my property?
P.S. My new home is in Monroe County, PA
