Rental property advertised with off road parking

Recommended Posts

The daughter of a friend of mine has just moved into a rental property and was told she could park to the rear of the house as off road parking.

She only rented the property as the off road parking would mean she had parking for two cars.


Low and behold she had been contacted by a neighbour saying that she cannot park there.

She has been given the neighbours deeds showing that the land is private and a right of way.

She was also given a print out of an email that shows the landlord replying to a "letter before claim" and saying that plans were too fuzzy to read.


She was lied to,

can she cancel the tenancy and get back her deposit?

She has been there for a week and the contract is for 6 months. 🙁

IMHO yes!!



please don't hit Quote...just type we know what we said earlier..

DCA's view debtors as suckers, marks and mugs

NO DCA has ANY legal powers whatsoever on ANY debt no matter what it's Type

and they

are NOT and can NEVER  be BAILIFFS. even if a debt has been to court..

If everyone stopped blindly paying DCA's Tomorrow, their industry would collapse overnight...

Hi Rosemary,


Did the tenancy agreement make any reference to the rear parking space.


Or was she only TOLD about the rear parking by the agent or landlord or other person.

We could do with some help from you

I agree with the above also does she have a copy of the Advertisement for the Property stating about the Rear Parking? (if not if it is still displayed make sure and take a screenshot of that advertisement)

I would also expect her to be able to recover any ancillary losses caused by the breach of contract which might include the costs associated with having to move again to another property.

Thanks. I will tell her to get the advert. She was told by letting agent verbally too. Hopefully she will get sorted.

If the tenancy agreement has already been signed ?


Unfortunately, you cannot just cancel a tenancy agreement yourself, LL/LA could hold you to full 6 months of the signed agreements.


You would have to ask LL/LA to agree to end the tenancy early or change the terms in TA.


Ask in writing, keep copies.


If LL/LA don't agree to anything,  you will have to fight out in the courts.
