Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
My parents have been living at their property for roughly 28/29 years. When they moved in, their semi-detached house came with a driveway which sits inbetween their house and another.
The problem they are facing now is to do with their neighbour. He is currently doing building work in his back garden. However, he needs right of access of the driveway so the building work can be completed.
After their neighbour did some investigation, he is stating that the driveway is owed by a private owner. He has supplied them with documentation of this? Not sure of the validity of this though.
I want to find out if my parents are able to claim the driveway as their own as they have been using this since they first purchased their house without any problems.
If you need any further information, please let me know.
Thank you, Marisa
Thank you for getting back to me so quickly!
It seems that my parents fall under The Prescription Act which you mentioned.They have never been challenged on the use of the driveway until now.
This being the case, how would my parents go about claiming?
You mentioned that this is not something my parents should do on their own if no experience.
Therefore, where would I start looking for assistance on this?
Ok. Are you able to recommend any in the London area?
