Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hi thank you for your enquiry and patience. Because you had not installed the gate and did force it open it is now in the hands of the police and you should defend your position by showing the evidence that you have a right of access through the way and that the housing association had in fact unlawfully blocked the way and there was nobody to speak to for the gate to be removed. You should consider applying for an injunction order against the housing association to get a court to order removal of the gate and this may help you if you are successful to then get the caution removed if the police at this stage refuse to accept your defence without a court order confirming your right of way. I hope this helps and I would be grateful for your rating at your earliest convenience. All the best
