Private Roads in Chatham County
Much of the property in Pittsboro, Chatham County, and surrounding areas is accessed by private roads.
The county puts significant restrictions on what you can or cannot do with a property if it is accessed via private road.
There are many people who assume they have a right of way because they have always used a road to their property but when the time comes to sell the discover they do not.
Recently, someone came to us with a “ditch to ditch easement”. They had been accessing their land via a road for over 100 years, but, the land was technically landlocked and did not have road access. Without this road it is not possible to subdivide a property like this.
