Hi all, I'm hoping someone can help me. I purchased a house 5 years ago which as part of the deeds includes a single parking space in an open carpark (of approx 14 spaces). Of these 14, 5 are visitors Spaces and the rest are allocated to the houses in the street. My neighbour is constantly abusing my space. I rerturn home and often find her with her possessions (from gardening, house clearance, charity shop runs, decorating in her house etc) stacked up in my space. I often have to sit and wait while she moves it all so I can park in my designated space. This has been going on for several months, and is compounded by the fact that I come home and find her visitors parking in my space (as it is conveniently opposite her house & next to her car). Today they only got out to move the car when I went to leave my car blocking them in. We have no parking enforcement, management company etc, as all the houses are privately owned (as ar the parking Spaces). I'm just wondering what legal rights do I have to stop her using my space? Can I actually "threaten" her with anything from a legal standpoint. Apparently the fact I have a number on my parking Space isn't enough to deter her from using it as she feels like it! The irony is the space on the OTHER side of her car is a visitors space and NEVER used by anyone as it's on the opposite side of the carpark to the other 4 so no one realises! Yet she knows this, and just keeps using mine... Asking her nicely has failed, today I just scowled and told her to hurry up when her guest moved the car () I've given up with being polite and asking nicely - it seems like every other day when I come home I have to wait for her so I can park up. I'm actually at the point where I'm going to just start parking in the the visitors spaces, but at the end of the day, it's my land??? What legal rights do I have?
