Hi FrTed, I looked at the link you gave, but it made my brain hurt. I think I will need to take a hard copy of VERA, and amend it according to FA2008 with a red pencil, for it to make sense. I think/hope that you are saying that DVLA can take action (clamp/remove) against an untaxed car parked on pr...

Can I claim the end of my back lane?

Hi, The lane behind my house is a cul-de-sac. When my house was built in 1916, the lane was not included in the 99 year Leasehold, but leaseholders were required to keep lane in good condition. The lane crossed the end of my garden then ended. In 1955, the Council built an estate of council houses o...

Hi, My understanding is that a RoW is exactly that .... a right to travel from one end to the other. There is no right to stop, or park a car, although it may be reasonable to stop for a rest if the way is long. There was a court case about a hundred years ago, involving a newspaper reporter walking...

Hi UKMicky, Thanks for prompt reply. I'm not sure why this covenant was imposed. It applies to other houses in the same street, and probably to the rest of the estate - but the map I have only covers this street. My daughter's house, and three neighbours (terrace of four) are the only ones to have s...
