I live in my own home on an es.ate, in my deeds it states no

Customer Question

I live in my own home on an es.ate, in my deeds it states no commercial vichicle and on the estate. the person who lives opposite has a van that he uses for work. Two nights per week he parks it on a shared parking space outside my home at the bottom of my garden. On a Saturday night he leaves it there to take his wife out, they also leave it there when going out shopping, meaning if visitors call they have to park their cars on my drive, if this van is parked outside. Other residents in our estate have the same problem, they are also unable to use this space. Is there any action I can take to stop this person parking this commercial vehicle? Thank you.

LondonlawyerJ :

Hello, I am a solicitor with over 20 years experience. I will try to help you with this.

LondonlawyerJ :

Can you tell me what the precise wording of the the prohibition on commercial vehicles is pelas? Also are you confident that everyone has this clause in their deeds?


The precise wording is :Not to keep or allow any commercial vehicle caravan or similar type of vehicle or any unroadworthy motor vehicle to be kept stationary on the property between the existing building and the estate road or roads co-extensive therewith.


I am unsure what is on the deeds of the other properties, but assume as they were built and the same time, by the same builders they would have this clause.

LondonlawyerJ :

I think the short answer to this is that your neighbour is breaching his lease terms but there is probably nothing you can do about it through the law courts. The costs of taking action would be very high and there would be very low levels of compensation, theoretically you could get an order requiring him not to park his vehicle but

LondonlawyerJ :

again the cost would be very high to achieve this.


Thank you for your reply. I sent an email to say that I had not a reply as I had not seen this reply. Please ignore.

Does my above question also apply to a cul de sac, is there nothing I can do? It is not his vehicle, he drives in for his employer who lives in another area.
