Many people here in Spain have told us that it is a legality for every house to have a drive access to their properties.
For example - for emergency services and deliveries.
Currently we are under threat of having our 'right of access' blocked by a Spanish neighbour who wants to complete the building of a villa, which commenced 4 years ago, only the shell was completed and it has been left untouched since this initial stage. He has now reappeared and says the land, which our 'right of access' is over, (to the East of our Villa) belongs to him and he now intends to erect a stone wall around his entire property, therefore terminating any access we have to our villa.)
We bought this house 18 months ago, and were assured (verbally) by the abogado, that the camino de acesso was in our escritura and so everything was correct and legal, and not to worry!!
The Camino de acesso has been in use for 30 years, by the previous owner.
So are we worried? -YES
The Ayuntamiento have told us that the General Plan states we have an access on the other (West) side of our villa, and we should use it.......Show us the road, and we will.....it was never built!!
They also say we have to pay for this road to be built - WHY?
Surely if it is on the General plan, then the Ayuntamiento or the promotors of the original build work should have a resposibilty to provide this road, it should have been built 30 years ago when the Finca Matrix was split into parcelas.
We are situated on a middle plot, and will therefore have no direct drivable access to our villa.
Any helpful thoughts on this......please
