Case of he said/she said - landlocked property case ruling in Amarillo County

Landlocked property is property that does not have its own means to enter or exit without crossing someone else's property. This was the case for the Gordon's. When the Gordon's purchased the land in 1971 from the Bremser's they had a verbal agreement. They had access to their property from 2 separate roads. However, Mr. Bremser died and the new owner Mr. Demmon wasn't as neighborly. In fact, Mr. Demmon put up a locked gate denying Mr. Gordon access and forcing him to take him to court. The court did grant Mr. Gordon partial easement but not what he wanted. The bottom line is you have to put things in writing. In the old days, if you gave your word it was a binding contract. People die and take that contract with them to their grave. So, it is always best to have it in writing.
