access right

The right of owners to get to or from their property. Legally, no land may be landlocked.Therefore, if a parcel is cut off from all public roads and there are no easements for ingress and egress,then the owner may bring suit and have a court declare an easement of necessity over the land of another. (This is one of the rare times when private individuals are able to bring condemnation actions and force another to give them property rights.)

Example:  Parcel B is landlocked, but the owner is entitled to access rights to public roads
and may force the owner of parcel A to provide an ingress and egress easement. The easement
must be via the most direct route to the nearest public road, without being unduly burdensome
on parcel A. The owner of parcel B may not force the owner of parcel A to provide a scenic route.
