Driveway easement issue

We are currently trying to close on our first house and right now the lack of a driveway easement is holding us up.  According to the surveys and lawyers for sellers and us are in agreement that the driveway is on the deed.  Is it common for a lender to require an easement for the driveway, when we would already have right of access?  Is there any reason that the neihbors wouldn't sign such a document ensuring they have access?  They are currently dragging their feet for some reason.
