Thank you for yoru question.
If you have a right of way over an area of land for the purposes of access, this would mean that you would be entitled to uninterrupted access through to your property.
With this in mind, you neighbour would not be able to block the right of access.
Whether you are allowed to take your car in would depend on the wording of the covenant. If there is no mention of a vehicle, you would be entiotled to use the area for vehicular access provieded it did not cause a nuisance or damage to any neighbouring properties.
I hope this answers yoru question. If so, kindly click accept.
If you wish to discuss, please feel free to ask further questions.
Thanks for that. Im a little worried about the wording as thats the bit that I cannot decode, can I send you the PDF document its only a page and a half long & probably wouldnt take you any more than 2 minutes to decipher so you can advise? I am happy to pay extra money...its just that Id like this clarified.
Thanks in Advance,
Of course you can. You can send it across market for my attention to: [email protected]
Thatnk, Ive just sent it now.
I will let you know when I have received it.
Salaam Mr. Khan,
Your Title Information Document ahs been received. The document states that you have the right of way over part of teh side passage not included within your title. Without seeing any plans, I am assuming this to be your neighbours part of the passageway.
The covenant does not state that it is on foot only, so with this in mind, you have the right to access using vehicles as well.
If I can assist further, pleae let me know.
Many thanks once again for the prompt reply. I am extremely grateful for the help you have provided. I am emailing 2 documents via Justanswer, One of them is my neighbours title & Plan and the other is my Title and Plan- the plans are on the last page if each document. Could you possibly look & confirm whether the "right of way" indeed refers to my neighbours part of the passageway?
If so then I presume if my neighbour continously blocks my right of way I can get a court order of some sort allowing me to ask Police to stop him from doing that- are you/your firm able to arrange this?, If so I would be very interested knowing the process for it & discussing whatever your fees are for the work.
