Areas of Law / Property

We have been parking our cars in a common yard shared with a small workshop for more than 30 years. The workshop’s new owner says we can now park there only with his permission: he says the “right to pass and repass” mentioned in the deeds doesn’t include the use of cars. Have we acquired the right to park there?

The first thing is to find out who owns the yard and what rights there are over it. If the new owner of the workshop does own the yard you will have to take him seriously. If information from the Land Registry does not show that you have parking rights you may be able to establish them nevertheless by proving that you and previous owners of your house have parked there continuously for more than 20 years without anyone’s permission.
