Hi, just after a bit of advice. My house is up a lane about 50m from the road and until recently there has been no land to park outside the house. My neighbour has bought some land of the house in front and converted into a parking area solely to be used by them even though they have room for two cars beside their house.

 

They have put up a sign saying parking for no1 only, (there is only two houses) what I want to know is what could they do if I parked on the land apart from ask me to move the car? And what could they do if I refused as it doesn't seem a very nice neighbourly thing to do.

 

I haven't move in yet so iam hoping they will allow me to park but I think they had issues with the previous owners and that's why they are being a bit obstructive.

 

Thanks for any advice any one can give.

Hi Judge_Nutmeg; Welcome to CAG.

IMO. Your best bet is to "Knock" on their door and talk to them and come to an agreement. You might find they are OK.

If you park on "Their land" without permission they could block you in.

Are you saying your house actually fronts the road with no space whatsoever?

That sounds like "A plan " to me. Discussion not confrontation that's the best route

'And what could they do if I refused as it doesn't seem a very nice neighbourly thing to do.'

 

And parking on someone else's land without permission is neighbourly?

Buying the land in front of someone's house and restricting parking isn't very welcoming! Hopefully it has occurred because of a clash with the previous owners, hopefully they will be neighbourly and allow you to park to their liking.

 

Were you made aware of the parking situation before you purchased the house? Was any easement looked at?

Isn't the area directly in front of a persons property there space and can't be brought by somebody else..

That would be immobilization and would be illegal.

What did the people you bought the house from do with their car? If they parked somewhere for a number of years withour paying rent or having a formal arrangement they may have created an easment, as suggested in your post above. Why didnt you ask about this at the conveyancing stage?

Were you made aware of this prior to purchasing the property ?

There is no information at all about why there is no space in front of your house or to either side, everyone is just making suggestions about nothing at present.

You need to answer the question why there is no parking possible outside your own property, this could involve rights of way and all sorts, but it sounds to me like the neighbour has had issues in the past so have resolved that by purchasing the land and are therefore likely to be inflexible.
