The 2nd easement says under no conditions does property line prevent me from full use and access to my property's lake frontage. Nasty neighbor has blocked both from me. What can I do.

A: You will need an attorney to sue in Chancery for an Injunction against their interference with your lawful use of the Easement. A title search of both adjoining tracts should be made first. Almost no chance of money recovery. If you do nothing, you lose the row.
