    Also to add while Ive had a lawyer and county officials tell me no you cant landlock a property owner they also said that dosnt always mean you get a road across to yours. You might have to walk to it

    All I know is that we backed out on a farm a few years ago. It was landlocked & the only access "road" was thru another fella's cattle field. We'd have been okay with that but the way the deed was written that access could ONLY be used for "agricultural purposes." Not to get to & from a house, not for deer hunting, strictly for agricultural purposes. After we viewed the property, they even locked the realtor out from showing it. The folks who ended up buying it had to buy another small piece of property off another road to get to & from it. It went up at auction a few years later & I've not seen any activity on it of any sort ever since, not even hunting & it's PRIME location for some nice deer. :-(

    I have to imagine you're not a land owner...

    Nope. Was always a dream of mine, but the more I read, hear, and actually see these days, I probably was never meant to be a landowner. I would hope that if I bought land with knowledge of a previous easement that I would be kind enough to allow the easement. As some people on here would say though, “It’s THEIR land they can do what why want with THEIR land.” My point stems from previous threads where I’ve talked about people buying land these days not really being “land loving” or “outdoorsy” type people. They must buy for status, I don’t know. I live in CKY so I can’t speak for the rural areas. But others are right, it’s theirs, they can do what they want with it.

    If the previous use is a valid easement, I'd work with it. The idea that I use my hard earned money to buy property, yet I somehow *OWE* you diddly squat is beyond me. When you start making the payments or writing the purchase price from *YOUR* checking account, you can grill me on whether I'm "outdoorsy" enough to meet your standards. Kinda what's wrong with half the country right now...

    Back in the late 80's a banker friend of mine loaned money for a client to buy a landlocked property. The bank ended up having to foreclose a couple of years later and ended up with the property. The bank tried everything possible with their attorneys to get a ROW into that property but failed. As far as I know the bank still owns it.

    I also knew a guy that owned a landlocked farm and he tried to force a ROW into the property through an adjoining landowner with the courts. He only needed to go a short distance through his neighbor to access his property, but his attempts failed miserably as well. With that being said, you can access your landlocked property at anytime through your easement.

    Well I never really realized I was talking to you? Nor grilling you? And you are correct, you don’t owe me a thing. So I apologize if I have offended you. Certainly wasn’t my intentions.

    Its not you personally. Its your attitude that there's a litmus test for private property. Seems to be a lot of that goin' around since the chinese flu hit...

    Maybe there should be? My point is a lot of people buying private property don’t really give two craps about owning that property other than being able to say, “Look what I have and others don’t have.” I also don’t think some of those buying the property are using their “hard earned” money. In other words, I’m seeing some real silver spoon a$$holes buy property these days. They are disrespectful of others and the property for that matter. I’d rather that land go to better people and them go shine daddy’s yacht. But it’s theirs and they can do as they please with it.

  11. Same thing with Murray State basketball tickets. They are limiting attendance this season and only sold like 1500 which they went by your Racer Club ranking for distribution and naturally the tickets went first to the owners of the car dealerships and the lawyers and doctors etc who give the most and usually have 4-6 seats each so the 1500 were gone quickly. I noticed yesterday at the game that probably 60% of the seats were empty. The bastages bought them with no intention of attending or even giving them away. It’s their money and tickets and of course they can do as they please with them, but it’s still sorry imho.

    I see both sides of the issue. Just sucks anytime you’re suddenly thrown into this situation.

    I can honestly say this........easements/right of ways have been deal killers on many properties I've looked at buying over the years.

    I was involved in a situation exactly like this on a piece of property that was landlocked by Corps of Engineers at Yatesville Lake a few years ago. A guy bought the head of a hollow that was previously accessed by a road that had been abandoned and flooded by the lake, the corp offered to let the guy build a road across their property, but it had to be designed and constructed to certain specifications, big bucks and this guy worked for a living. We ended up mapping out a new easement across the property of an adjoining neighbor on the backside of the property, as I remember, he ended up having to pay a fortune for the easement.
