if the estate brings in private parking company to start to issue tickets for vans being parked within the area outwith set times stated by them can i ignore the tickets issued from them!?? i feel my rights to live peacefully have been viloated, although in their defence within the tennacy agreement there may be a section regarding this although it has never been enforced until now!!...if it was clearly stated to me at the time of taking on the agreement with the letting agency that my parking of a company vehicle would be a issue at some point then i would have reconsidered moving in!! i have lived here now for near as 3 years and i feel the actions of possibly a tennant complaining about the parking has caused this knee jerk reaction where as before we all just got on with it and parked where we could!! im i legally within my rights to ignore any tickets issued from parking companies!?? i would consider taking it to court if i had too to state my case!!
That is me.
Can you tell mewhether you rent the property or whether you own it?
Do you know whatthe lease says about the allocated parking space?
Has anyonecomplained to you personally?
I am going to needsome more information before I reply in detail.
i rent the property!! there is also one allocated space for each flat within the carport area there is also marked visitors spaces with the carport areas!! ive attached letter sent to me recently!!
Attachments are only available to registered users.
Unfortunately, Icannot see the letter. You can email it to me, , my name and UK law,via [email protected]
and it will beforwarded to me. They are forwarded manually so it they could take up to 24hours to arrive so please bear with me.
Meanwhile, can youtell me whether the parking space is included in your agreement? Have youspoken to your landlord about this?
Meanwhile, itappears that you park to vehicles, a car and a van. One is parked in theparking space and the otherwise part in the visitors space. Is that correct?
Can you tell mewhat the landlord to lease says about parking allocation?
i havent received a satisfactory response to my question from yesterday!!?? i sent the attached letter file as you asked but i got a response stating the fact but nothing since!!..can you please tell me whats happening now??
I didsay that the document can take some time to arrive. It arrived at 1526, about20 minutes ago.
Iobviously do not have the lease but if the covenants that they refer to intheir letter are indeed in the lease (the landlord will confirm) then you areonly allowed to park one car (not a commercial vehicle).
Thereis another point, and that is that if you park it anywhere else, such as in oneof the visitor spaces, you're running breach of the covenant not to createnuisance.
I'msorry to have to tell you that they are not all of a sudden forcing you intoparking in another part of town. The rule has been there all along, you wereeither ignoring it or not aware of it.
Iagree with you that someone has probably complained about this, butunfortunately, they do have something to complain about because you arebreaching the terms of the landlord to lease.
Theyare allowed to bring in a parking company to manage the estate parking and toenforce the covenants in the lease. Provided they put sufficient signage, anypenalty charges for incorrectly parked vehicles can be enforced in court since1 October last year, under the Protection of Freedoms Act.
I'msorry, I appreciate that this is not the answer you wanted but there is nopoint in me misleading. I have a duty to advise you truthfully and honestly,even if that answer is unfavourable.
Doesthat answer the question? Can I help further? Can I answer any specific points?
