has a tennant any rights to empose a parking restriction to an unused garage on behalf of his landlord? the space in question is a drop drive access in front of an unused property which has been claimed as a permenant parking place for the above mentioned tennant. my daughter has parked across this space in the early hours as she works shifts and feels threatened if parking too far away. The tennant is very rude and doesn't care about her situation as he says a parking space (not in the garage but across the drop) is vital to his own well being
Province/Country relating to question : london
Are you saying she is parking upon a dropped kerb?
it is an old cobbled drop that has access to an used garage door. the tennant that is complaining does not use the garage but wants permanent access to park across the driveway
Then that is a contravention I'm afraid.
If this is public road then the council will be delighted to issue a ticket and may even clamp or tow the vehicle. The police also could issue a fine for causing an obstruction.
If this is private land the council would have no interest but the police may fine her.
In relation to the tenant, he is entitled to have access to the driveway.
