Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help with this.
Alex Watts : How long have they been parking there?
Alex Watts : have you asked them to stop please?
I had them stop parking for 2 weeks recently as I had workmen at my property and they complied. I have allowed this to go on for 6 years and now other neighbours have written me letters of complaint as it is my land they are on.
Alex Watts : Ok. Do you have any written agreement allowing this person to park?
No, it was a verbal agreement.
Alex Watts : Then you need to write and terminate the agreement and give notice, I would suggest a few weeks to a month.
Alex Watts : If the person continues to park then you can block the area off if you wish.
Alex Watts : If that is not practical then you can see a court order stopping him park,
Alex Watts : For this you would need to complete county court forms n1
Alex Watts : http://justclaim.co.uk/court-forms/N1-claim-form.html
Alex Watts : And n16a
Alex Watts : You would seek an order stopping the person from parking.
Alex Watts : But given the length of time they have not acquired any right to park.
Alex Watts : So you can just end the agreement and in reality there is nothing they can do.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Out of interest what is the length of time for them to acquire a right as I need to check my dates?
Alex Watts : There is no right to acquire as such but a prescriptive right to do something is 20 years.
Alex Watts : But you seem well inside that.
Alex Watts : Does that help?
Yes that does, I was worried it was around 7 years. Thank you. ***** give them a reason to stop parking, like the other neighbours complaining or just advise them to stop?
Alex Watts : You won't need to give a reason but you can,
Alex Watts : If this answers your question might I invite you to rate my answer
