    Tenant parking spaces being used by others

    Has anyone else suffered this issue, of having parking spaces getting used by others on a constant basis?

    My house is a 2 bedroom property with 2 allocated parking spaces (with 3 more parking spaces right next to them for other properties, not mine).  The area doesn't have much by way of parking, so the parking spaces are quite sought after.  Consequently neighbours are constantly using the spaces that are for my tenant.  I've had this problem for years, I even bought No Parking signs off amazon (that look sort of official for both parking spots).  On one occasion a company vehicle parked there, I contacted the business owner asking if they knew who had parked there, and could they kindly make sure they didn't do so in the future (that resolved that issue, but it's a never ending story).

    But anyway the point is, I feel like nothing I do really makes any difference with the law currently as it is, my hands are pretty much tied.  I realise I can probably put a notice on their car and threaten fines etc, but most people realise they can just ignore that stuff with no real consequence. Arghhh

    Your only other option is to install parking bollards on your parking spaces which only your tenants have keys for.....

    I had considered something like that, I quite like that they are flush and don't look too unsightly when not in use (the first link).
