what do those easements say?

try to get verbal (or written if needs be) 'agreement', highlighting your 'right' when trying.

if all else fails there is the Access to Neighbouring Land Act 1992 re an access order.

your eg is uncanny :) re http://www.problemneighbours.co.uk/acces-to-neighbours-land.html

ok, easement looks good on the face of it.

so, could try a verbal notice/agreement with neighbour? eg when to come over on xxx to have a look/repair gutter causing damp to my house? mentioning your rights there if they kick up. (including at the 'proportionate expense of the owners'.)

if no joy, could then try in writing? anything else?

if still no joy, then the Act as mentioned. but, it would be in their best interests (unless they are that disagreeable) to agree rather than defending an access order in court where they would no doubt lose particularly given the easement. and they could be subject to your costs for taking the court action following your reasonable attempts to come to an arrangement prior.

see what others say, maybe get thread moved to an appropriate sub forum.
