No he has rented the property and tells the tenants that the right of way is his property. One tenant hired a digger and started digging my garden. I get people knocking on my door saying the owner of the house has given them permission to park their car on my drive yet the road to the end of the garden gives he easier access to his property which is why the tenants never use it.
