My new end terrace house has space for my car to be parked

Customer Question

My new end terrace house has space for my car to be parked at the rear on land that I own. This is accessed by an un-adopted road that ends at my house. My next door neighbours have been parallel parking their 2 cars outside their house and blocking the road, either knowingly blocking me in it preventing me from getting access to my property for parking. I've chatted to them amicably about this in an effort to achieve a resolution as I believe there's room for all 3 of us to park but so that I can drive off without having to ask them to move their car, but they are unwilling to compromise and are pushing me to park my car out on the main road or continue as we are. That's not acceptable to me but I don't know what my rights are or how best to deal with it without falling out with them! Not that they seem worried about that. I'd just like to be able to come and go as I please without having to deal with the situation each day as I find it. Any advice would be gratefully received! Thank you

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Why do they keep doing this please?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Because it's more convenient for them and they're not prepared to put either of their two cars on the main road, despite suggesting that I should!
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 8 months ago.

Ok. You need to get a solicitor to write and ask that they stop doing this or say you will seek a court order restraining them.

If they refuse then you can issue proceedings. You can do this by completing form n1

And n16a

The court will set the matter down and decide whether to make an order stopping them parking there. If the court does and they refuse this could be contempt of court which they may be warned, fined or sent to Prison.

Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?

Hi - can you tell me what the law is in th UK concerning access to privately owned land/drive ways via unadopted roads? Thanks
Expert:  Jamie-Law replied 7 months ago.

It comes under the common law of trespass.

Does that clarify?
