Italian Rights of Way
Our property comprises two buildings joined at the first floor. A right of way goes along a path between the two buildings and under the join.We are hoping to demolish one of the buildings so that our garden will fully adjoin the house (ie we will get rid of the path). We recognise that we have, at the very least, a moral obligation to provide a right of way. One of our neighbours has an orto at the end of our land and the existing right of way is the easiest way for her to access it. We can provide an alternative path around the other side of our land but this would add about 6m to the distance that she would have to walk.I don't think we have anything in writing that states that the existing path is a right of way but I would imagine that it is either recorded at the commune in some way of there is a right of way established by custom.Has anyone had experience of moving a right of way? Is there likely to be a legal process or can it be donw by agreement?
