Thank you. Assuming
all the leases are the same (You can get his lease from Land Registry for about
£20 to be sure) https://eservices.landregistry.gov.uk/www/wps/portal/!ut/p/b1/04_SjzS0tDQwMTIxMjLXj9CPykssy0xPLMnMz0vMAfGjzOKNjSxMDA1NjDwsjM3MDTxN3dyNDUNMjQ1MjPWDU_P0c6McFQH3SLFU/
I suggest that you
check your lease if it is likely that they are all the same, as it will save
Then there will
usually be a covenant not to cause nuisance or obstruct the common parts. Even
if there isn't an actual covenant it is a common law requirement in any event.
My suggestion would
be to get a solicitor to write to the offender (a solicitors letter will carry
more weight) threatening an application to court for an injunction to compel
them to stop parking there and an application for court costs.
At the same time, I
would write to the freeholder and the management company threatening a similar
action against them for allowing this to happen and for allowing the neighbour
to breach the covenant for quiet enjoyment. Quiet enjoyment does not literally
mean "quiet" but means simply without interference.
Faced with an
application to court, hopefully the obstructive neighbour will stop and, faced
with an application for court, the freeholder and the management company are
likely also pursue the obstructive neighbour because I am certain that the
freeholder will not want to be taken to court simply because one neighbour is
parking where they are not supposed to.
Does this answer
the question? Can I assist further? Can I answer any specific points?
