    Freeholders responsibility

    Hi all,

    I was hoping someone could help, I own a leasehold garage and currently there is always someone parked infront of my garage door. I have left notes but as its pretty convenient people ignore them and park there anyway. I need access to the garage most mornings so this is becoming a bit of a pain.

    What is the freeholders responsibility here? I would suggest putting posts up to stop people parking there but of course not being my land I'm stuck. I have offered to purchase the freehold so I can enforce parking myself but my offer was refused.

    Any advice.

    Thanks,

    George

    I think the devil will be in the detail of the Lease you hold for the Garage.

    Hi Adam,

    The lease doesnt mention anything about this as they eventually move them however they seem to go to work later than I do so hence the issue.

    thanks,

    If they re blocking your garage that is a non emergency call to the Police

    Police wont do anything about this. I once reported a car parked inside my property, in my drive.. they told me trespassing is not a crime.

    With respect that is rubbish, but nothing surprises me tbf. 100% you can report this. Surprisingly an empty drive is different, if you car was on it, that is a criminal offences, same as blocking a garage on a drive, or in a compound. The reason for the garage being an offence is someone could be in the garage and could be trapped. So Empty drive is different to drive with a car on it and or a drive with a garage

    There was no other car blocked at the time and  it is not posing a health and safety threat, so police did not do anything about it.

    Hi, I understand that if you contact highways, even as a leaseholder, they will for a small fee put a special white line outside which restricts any parking in front of the garage.

    Block manager (freeholder) can only legally enforce covenants in the lease. Sounds like anti social behaviour to me.

    Thanks all. I'll speak to the freeholder again. I dont see what a white line will do as its generally overnight im pretty sure no one would enforce it. I'll have a lawyer read the lease and see if they can find anything in it which highlights that they need to enforce parking.

    Thanks again!
