Neighbour installed an 8ft diameter trampoline on drying green which is common to block of four flats. Due to the trampoline not being moved for over a year and a half the grass underneath has not had enough light and has died off, roughly 6ft diameter of grass was affected.The neighbour in question did not ask permission to install the trampoline from all the residents at the time.Can the neighbour be legally forced to remove the trampoline?

Thanks for your question. Please remember to rate my answer SMILEY FACE OR ABOVE so that I am credited for my time.If it is common land and you all have access then yes.No one person should be in a position to monopolise the position of use.If the person does not have consent and is using it without regard he can be made to move it.It would be for the freeholder to make the tenant move the item and make good any damage.But yes, he can be forced to move it, but any action must come from the Landlord/Freeholder. Please remember to click *** SMILEY FACE *** or above so that I am credited for my time. Thank you.
