How do we do this no er the phone? My neighbours have just sabotaged another sale by having a go about parking to the people who wanted to offer this morning. This house is being sold with no parking.
There is a right of way I believe for the alley way that cuts through to Goulds ground. There are a few houses which have gates out on to the alley. Where we park leaves walking access down the side. If you look on the plan attached h have drawn an oval where we park. Goulds lane is a private rd. The garages belong to the houses on the st. Some are rented out to people on Goulds ground. They are the ones using the alley. Nobody else parks in my spot as they all have ample parking. However due to these constant disruptions to out potential sales I now feel I have to find out if we have a way of claiming this space. Also find out the exact boundaries of our private lane. I believe we are still parking on our private rd as it is wide and also if you look at the plan, the place we are parking is parallel to the driveways before the garages which I am hoping is still part of the private rd not alley way
I attaching photo of where our car is parked in relation to our private rd.
Attached is photo facing down alley showing access
This photo is down the alley. You can see the end of the garage building and the old wall which I believe indicates where the alley starts. If where we park is our private rd, hopefully nobody would have the right to tell people that we have no right to oark there. 10yrs of parking there with absolutely no problem and as soon as we are on the market this starts.
Thankyou, last question is, as a private rd do we have the right to park on our rd. Even if no designated place?
The deeds state access to and from our property and as shared ownership we have shared maintenance of the Rd. It doesn't state anything regarding parking at all.
