I do not have a driveway and my house is right on the road !
Property search shows i own the land in front of my house right up to the middle of the road.
Can i stop people parking in front of my house ?
wingrovebuyer : Hello. Although this is a Scottish jurisdiction, the law here is the same. Whilst you own the land, it is designated public highway. This means you cannot prevent people from parking on it. Effectively, whilst you own it, it is subject to public rights and management by the highways authority. Hope this helps. WB
