Subject: Request for a right of way


Dear Sir or Madam,

I am taking the liberty of contacting you, because I am the new owner of the building plot located at ... (indicate the address) and bordering your property, to inform you of my wish to build my house.

However, my land is enclosed and, as authorized by article 682 of the Civil Code, I would like to obtain a right of way on your property in order to be able to access the public road by car.

We can agree on an indemnity proportionate to your prejudice.
I remain at your entire disposal in order to agree together on the terms of this passage and the amount of your compensation.

Please accept, Madam, Sir, the assurance of my highest consideration.
