Hello. I would like to know my rights with regards to a gate put on one of the block entrances by my neighbours. They lock the gate everyday at around 19:00, and open it at 06:00. The problem is that since my house is the second house from the gate, I have to walk 5 minutes to get to the un-gated block access to get to the main road. I leave my house for work every morning at 5:30, before the gate is opened which forces me to walk to the other block entrance/exit.

This is even more problematic for me when it rains as I have to try dodging many pot-holes and mud areas along the way to the other exit. If the gate was opened, it would take me less than 1 minute to get to the main road. My house is Not part of an estate.

Please help.
