Hello, the cars are parked on private property, which you now own. As such, you can do two things. 1. Notify your local council as they have the power to remove abandoned vehicles from public and also private land. Check your local council on https://www.gov.uk/find-your-local-council

2. As the vehicle is causing an obstruction, you really should notify the Police that the cars are on your land and as such the owner has trespassed - the Police should be able to remove the vehicles for you and also the fact they are untaxed means the Police may choose to pursue the owner for that

Hope this helps - please click accept answer if you're happy. Thanks and have a good day. James
