It’s an option, just sayin
I've lived in my house since 2008, one neighbor has been I got 20 families near by. Ive spoke to a guy one time....I’ve lived in my house since April 2018...
I still don’t think 90% of my neighbors know I exist....

Blue is the easement. It belongs to the unmarked housed with the lighter blue colored roof. That's a duplex, but that house at one point was a single family home and owned both ours and dems lots/easement as one big lot. It was parceled, developed, and two houses went on it.
Red is the road and how it runs/ends. I "own" the culdesac. Front to back, no one has rights/easement on my land. I can demolish it and put a garage there if I want. The drive (red filled) obviously goes across the front of their lot. I have an easement on that (contractually/expressed). We both have an expressed easement on the upper portion. There's a fence that divides the space, and we effectively have our own "drive".

sounds like svtp drama, just in real life.
btw thinking of moving to a John's Island...is it nice there?
So he wants it done monthly, you do it bi-montly.
Simply explain to him he's responsible for the month in between, and if he won't do it or pay to have it done, then it gets done bi-montly.
If he doesn't like it? Too bad for him.
Ok so basically you’re property is “together with” an ingress/egress easement and the other two are “subject to” the same easement? My property is entirely self contained with no easements. In order for me to reach my home, a drive extends through the unmarked homes side lot (which is fenced off) until it reaches "Dems" lot, and a road is extended across that as well, and then the road ends on the end of my lot. The only easements in place are my right of way across the front of their lot via the road, and the easement we both have on the front lot that gives us access to the main public road.
The original owner subdivided their property so as to make a little $$ and had to provide easements to the back lots they created as the only access is through the “front” of the property? Correct
Usually there should have been language in the contracts stipulating maintenance. Typically when I have seen these each owner is responsible for maintaining the portion of the easement that crosses their property. In SC if a tree falls on the easement and that tree belongs to the easement property owner, it's the responsibility of that person to remove it. I was very clear at signing with my overly expensive closing lawyer about responsibility when it came to the easement and my property. I am in the county despite being surrounded by City ordinance, and luckily it's much easier to deal with. So no, no maintenance expressed, merely implied.
In practice there is “usually” an element of good neighboring that goes on here...pooling resources to pay for maintenance, alternating maintaining the whole thing, etc... That's the thought. But badgering someone until they do it when they are obviously consumed doing other things isn't good neighboring either. So there's the rub.
To the poster that mentions waiting a while and claiming adverse possession....no chance of that since properties were purchased with easements in place. Yea, I agree. No need to start a legal battle.
