It's not uncommon. When estates are built commonly there will be amenity land, which generally just means that it isn't subject to the usual planning allowances given to normal land. There may be other restrictions such as you are not supposed to fence it in. Read your deeds and those of the estate ...

Your best bet in this situation is to make the area as unattractive to them as possible. They are using your carpark because presumably it appears dark and unwatched - so make it appear light and watched. Pat's idea of the floodlight is ideal, it may be less disturbing if it's on all the time rather...

Yes there is, I use(d) that feature a lot. Despite the fact that there is a restriction in the register requiring conveyancers to serve notice on me when properties transfer, frequently they do not do so and the Land Registry don't bother to check for the certificate. When a particular property owne...

Equally when the only NFH cases that get reported in the papers or the police seem to deal with are those where the "victims" are of ethnic origin it becomes an even bigger problem You see more reporting of those cases for two reasons: 1) Because invariably some idiot that can't make an argument wi...

does anyone know if anyone has tried to serve a notice of trespass on someone over their cat? What would be the point? Contrary to popular belief you can't actually prosecute a trespasser (even if they're a person and not a cat), you can however sue them (persons) for any damage they cause. Unfortu...

You've planted them 6 inches from the boundary and therefore will not be able to maintain them when they are larger without entering the neighbours property. I wouldn't be happy with that either.

Whilst you have agreed to maintain it now, what happens if you become incapacitated or move?

Derogation from grant means a situation where a landlord, having granted a tenant rights, then acts or fails to act in such a manner as to interfere with the tenants ability to enjoy that right. Frankly I can't see how it would apply to you if you were granted the use of half the garden and still ha...

I don't think the shed is leased seperately, it forms a part of what is already subject to the existing residential leases.

The developer/freeholder can't sell something to which he has already granted other people (the leaseholders) rights. In order to sell and be on safe legal ground he will probably have to vary all of the leases of the flats. That's where it starts to get expensive even if the leaseholders are in agr...

I can't see how that will help really. The problem for the leaseholders / freeholder is that there is probably a clause in the leases which grants the leaseholders permission to use the bin shed marked on the plan. Depending on how specific that clause is and how detailed the plan is the freeholder ...
