Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
I am Al and am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
I take it that there is some form of Management Company that has been set up to maintain the parking area?
Any information you can provide would assist.
I look forward to hearing from you.
No, there is no management company. My daughter contacted the company that built the homes (which are only 3 years old) and they confirmed that the visitor spaces are for visitors only. The Land Registry records also confirm that each house is entitled to one parking space each. The new neighbours have, it seems, just taken the law into their own hands and relabelled the parking space as their own.
Thanks for your reply.
As ther eis no Management Company, who takes responsibility over maintaining the parking area? I appreciate the properties ar eonly 3 years old and therefore no maintenance has probably been required, but someone or somebody must still own the visitors parking spaces and the Developer should have set up an arangement as to who is to be responsible for maintaining the parking area as in years to come, this will cause a problem if nothing has been set up.
I look forward to hearing from you
Al, so you are saying this is basically an issue of ownership of the spaces? We are not aware of who has responsibility for maintaining the parking area. We will look at the deeds and see what they say, and then get back to you.
Thanks. What I am trying to get to is that someone must still own the visitors parking spaces and on a side issue, someone has messed up if there is no arrangment in place to say who is to be responsible for the parking area as a whole and the maintenance of the visitors parking spaces (in years to come, there may be issues with the owners if there is no arrangement in place, in that no-one is legally responsible for looking after the parking area and this will be bad for your daughter and the other residents).
I am guessing the V spaces are still owned by the Freeholder Developer and if so, you need to approach them as regards ***** *****
Please let me know if I can help further, once you have done some research.
Yes, I'll get back in due course. Thanks for your advice so far.
