When is a servitude valid? Does it have to be registered? I live on subdivided property in which I was given the right to use a driveway by agreement ( A servitude).. However, the adjoining property whose driveway I use was sold. The new owner does not recognise this right of way and has accused me of encroaching.The servitude was not registered. What do I do?
