Burleson, TX asked in Land Use & Zoning for Oklahoma

Q: Bought land that hasn't been surveyed in over 100 yrs. Put in a driveway and found out we are 104ft on undeveloped land.

The owner is fencing off our driveway in 24hours if we don't purchase 5 acre track. Can he do that?

A: Lots of questions here. Was the driveway in existence? If so for how long?

Was your real estate landlocked with this being the only access?

You should visit an attorney. You may have acquired an interest by adverse possession or a prescriptive easement.
