I own some land next to my property. A house owner close by

Customer Question

I own some land next to my property. A house owner close by to me has a written paragraph in their deeds to park one car only on my land. However this home owner continually parks an extra car on my land without asking me. Can I legally ask the owner of the property to stop parking the extra car and can I get the authorities to remove it if they refuse?

Alex Watts : Did you ever consent to this person parking on your land?
Customer:

No, I just returned home one Friday evening and the car was parked there. It's there again tonight but I didn't see it arrive and I wasn't asked if it was o.k to park there.

Alex Watts : Ok you have two choices.
Alex Watts : 1) Employ a private company to issue a penalty charge notice
Alex Watts : 2) go to court and seek an injunction to stop him parking.
Alex Watts : The authorities won't remove it as the land is yours and they have no jurisdiction
Alex Watts : You as land owner have to deal with this nuisance yourself.
Alex Watts : You would need to complete forms n1

Alex Watts : You are seeking an order stopping the person from parking,
Alex Watts : If they breach the court order this is contempt and could be warned, fined, sent to prison for all of these.
