“I have a property in the Hollywood Hills that is landlocked. According to California Law, a “right of way” easement may be necessary to get legal access to the lot. Does anyone know if this is the right course? If so, how do I apply for an easement? Which department in the county do I need to contact? Need HELP!!!”
The question is, how did the parcel come to be landlocked? If it was subdivided from another parcel which has road access, you may have the right to access over that parcel. If not, you may be out of luck in terms of forcing the issue.
At that point, you would have to approach one or more of your neighbors to get an easement over their property. Expect to pay them for this.
