Default Access to Property

We live on the end of a row 6 townhouses within an urbanisation that borders onto another urbanisation. The access to the side of our house has blocked by fences to side, front and rear so that we can no longer access our property for maintenance etc.

Before we actually go to law, can anyone advise me on the legal position. I would have thought it to be illegal to prevent access to private property (lets face it, it is illegal to prevent access to the sea front!).

I would have posted an image but it won't load.

Thanks.

I guess my first question would be "how do the others gain access to the rear". Surely they just go through their properties and out the back door?

If you are concerned about the end wall, then this normally has to be done with consent from your neighbour. In UK your deeds would normally cover this.

Other peope don't need to access the side of my house. If I could post an image it would be much more clear.

active posters can post images

you need to join in a bit on other threads maybe then the facility will be come activated

has the fence actually been put on your property?

very often, the rules about fences & so on are written into the urbanisation rules, rather than being local or national rules/laws

Hope this loads. The black line is the fence. Our property is the one with the wrod Catastro on it. No one else has the same problem it is access to the side not the rear that is the problem.Fence_A.jpg

What does it say in your Escritura ? It would be easier and cheaper to check that before getting a legal representaive involved - especially as that is probably the very first thing that they would do themselves anyway.
