Customer Question

Hi I own a detached house with a drive and the house next to me, also detached, have a numbers of home deliveries on a frequent basis and due to the orientation of their house the drivers continually either block all or part of my drive preventing proper access. I have now at least 5 times had to ask the driver to move his vehicle and it is starting to become annoying and irritating. I intend to approach my neighbor to ask them to help control this situation as it is their deliveries & not mine. They are not very neighborly we have tried to be nice, taking on their parcels at times etc. but there is just not the chemistry so all I want now is for them to respect my I have any course of action if they ignore my request and let the practice persist?

Hello I am a solicitor with over 15 yeas experience. I will try to help you with this.


I am afraid that there is probably not much you can do about this. If they are not coming on to your property but merely temporarily blocking the access to your property and are not parking on yellow lines etc then yo will have no rights that you can enforce at all.

JACUSTOMER-7pry5pqg- :

so does your position on my issue stay the same if the vehicles are part parking on the road and path such that it is over my drive on the dropped curb...are they not technically on my property/


Yes it does, no they are not unless you actually own the pavement with the drop curve.
