I live in an end of terrace property with a pathway that runs from my house to the one at the other end.  The pathway is owned by the end cottage and when we moved here I was told that we could use the path for access but the middle cottage could not (this was also what I was told when we lived in the middle one).  The letting agent now says that the middle cottage has rights to use the path and has shown me the deeds that confirm this.  As this is different to what we were told whilst living at both properties can we stop them using it on the basis of it affecting our privacy?

I’m not sure what rights you’d have not being the property owner. This is quite a complex question and one that you should really seek legal advice on – try one of the UK law centres, they’re free.
