Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Who owns that land please?
Does this parking area show on her tenancy agreement?
I'm not sure who owns the land but the flats are leasehold. Her landlord told her about this parking area when she took the lease. This parking area is not shown on the plans
Does she have a parking space in her lease?
I don't think so but will have to ask her tomorrow. As I said she has a garage about a hundred yard away with space in front but is not confident enough to use it especially in the winter when it is dark
Ok - let me know tomorrow
Hi Alex. There doesn't appear to be anything in writing - its just custom and practice that the tenant of that flat parks there. The other party has two cars including a van so their access is a bit tighter but doable.
My daughter has for 8 years and before that the landlords mother but I don't know for how long. It might be easier if you tell me what the law says about this and then I can check my facts
Well sadly she needs 20 years to establish a right to do something
If she can show 20 years use then she may have a chance of fighting it
If there is under 20 years use then no right is gained and sadly the Landlord can stop her parking
So it really depends how much she can show
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Does it have to be use by one person or can it be a series of people living at the flat?
No I think that's fine
