Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
Is the offending person a Council tenant as well please?
No, one of 2-3 owners in the road. she has owned the house for approx. 25 years but lived away for a long period nursing parents. Returned 4 years ago.The house was empty in her absence
Offending person is a council tenant, my friend is an owner
Has your friend reported the matter to the Council, as it is their tenant?
No, the consequences, judging from this man's on going behaviour she would be 'punished' by him and possibly others. She is very frightened of provoking him.
Ok - so what does she want to achieve please?
Her legitimate parking space or another which would always be free for her.
Ok - if she does not want to complain to the Council I assume she wont want to go to Court?
No, also she would not be able to afford it, I shan't tell her I have paid for our caat! She would like the council to visit the street, check on the ownership and positioning of cars and issue instructions on parking according to allocation. She must not be seen to reporting the problem particularily as she is an owner.Are there not rules about the number of vehicles any one tenant has?
Ok - what she can do is this
Complain to the Council
A clause in the tenancy agreement will be not to cause annoyance to others
Clearly by parking in this way they are in breach. There are no specific rules, save that parking can not cause an obstruction
But this is a free option. She should do this - the Council wont tell the neighbour that she has complained.
Therefore she does not need to worry
But they can go, look at the parking and give verbal warnings about parking
If they continue the Council can seek possession proceedings or an injunction
But this is the best and free option
