A: Have you performed a title search? Because of permissive use over time there may be a prescriptive use easement for the benefit of the other property, or you may be able to assert none exists. Be prepared to litigate by hiring a competent attorney to look into it. The burdening water use easement must be in your chain of title, not the other benefiting property title.
