I don't want anyone parking there unless they ask permission. I am not unreasonable but feel certain individuals are taking liberties.
Just because there is the right of way over an area of land does not mean there is the right to park on it. Rights of way overland and rights to park a completely separate and have to be granted separately or acquired separately. If this person continues to park without objection or consent does it for more than 20 years they then acquire the right to carry on, so that is to be avoided.
Many house owners and legal expenses insurance attached to the house insurance so it’s worthwhile checking your policy because it could well be that any legal costs incurred are covered by insurance.
You can write to the neighbour or get a solicitor to write to the neighbour (in a nice way initially) sending them a copy of the Land Registry title deed and highlighting that it is merely a right-of-way not the right and you would be grateful if they stopped immediately. It hasn’t stopped within a few days of letter (there is no reason why it shouldn’t stop immediately they receive it) a further letter threatening court application for an injunction and legal costs should resolve the problem for them to take legal advice which we tell them that they have no right to do this.
As this appears to be a tenant, you also need to copy the landlord because the landlord would be subject to any litigation because he’s allowing it to happen. The letter to the landlord needs to be worded to tell him to stop the tenant doing this otherwise he’s going to face litigation along with the tenant.
Can I clarify anything for you?
In clarification of the final sentence of your third paragraph.
The second letter would threaten court application for an injunction AND recovery of all legal costs ? The letter would also state that they can take legal advice but have no grounds for contention based on the information provided?
