This answer was rated:


A neighbour recently asked if they could park their car on our private drive. The lady has had her current parking space revoked (due to sale of car park) and suffers with Parkinson's disease, so we felt it our neighbourly duty to allow her, even though it does inconvenience us as we have two cars of our own and lots of visitors.

We are now concerned that if she uses our private drive way and parking area for a certain amount of time it may result in her having a legal right to access our drive way and property - is this possible?

Kind Regards

No, she will not acquire any such legal rights. You have given her permission to park on your property and you may withdraw this permission when you want to.

If you are not comfortable about it, you should inform her that regrettably, you are no longer able to allow her to park on your property.

Hope this helps
