My neighbours approached me recently asking if they could park

Customer Question

My neighbours approached me recently asking if they could park their car on my drive on a daily basis over the long term. They do not have a drive and have difficulty always finding a parking space nearby. (I should say that I own my property.) They offered to "upkeep" my drive in return.
Aware that I could reasonable charge a rental for the use of my drive I suggested that, instead of upkeep, they make me a reasonable rental offer. I did not specify an amount, but was aware from checking the internet that a reasonable rental figure for use of a neighbour's driveway would be around £75 per month. I have received a note from my neighbours offering £50 PER YEAR. I find this derisory and do not intend to accept it. Is there a legal issue here? Could my neighbours claim that, as I currently receive no rental income for the drive at all, I am obliged to accept their offer?
