We have a laneway at the rear of our property that is an easement. The laneway is on the title to a block of flats that have blocked our access with a gate that appears halfway down the lane. There are 4 properties at the top of the lane that have access to the laneway as their garages have been built onto the lane. We are hoping to gain access to the laneway as we wish to subdivide and build a garage backing onto the lane. The Body Corporate initially recognised abutting owners must be given access but are now refusing to allow permanent access and are applying to the council to remove the easement. Is there anything we can do in this situation? We have been in contact with the body corp for a few months now since there are some properties that have permanent access should we be granted the same access?
