Good afternoon, have you asked the freeholder where he intends for the bins to go if they are not allowed to be kept there?
There must be a communal area where the bins could go?
Also if it is a maisonette are you sure you are not a co-freeholder?
I would need to see a copy of your lease to establish the legal position.
It is not necessarily a case of if you have used it for a number of years then it gives you the right to use the space - this may come as a defence should the matter go down the legal route as evidence of your use. Unfortunately because your lease is quite old, the way it is drafted does not provide a specific provision for the bin storage. If the freeholder is not being reasonable to come to a mutual agreement then your only option would be to take legal action and instruct a solicitor in litigation against your freeholder.
