I am a tenant in a shared house – there are 5 of us in the property. The house is situated in the centre of town so parking is limited and costly. There is one parking space in the front of the house which we have all shared on a democratic basis for several years without a problem. The previous landlord would also use the space if there were any maintenance issues, which was rare, and he would always inform us well in advance.

At the beginning of this month, our previous landlord sold the property to new owners as a rental property. The new owners (who are not English) have put a locked post in the one parking space and informed us that they require the space for their own use and will be using the space every day for the next 5 weeks!

Can anyone tell me if the parking space comes as part of the property, if they have a right to do this or if this can be considered to be an intrusion on our privacy?

Hi Dee,

If you have signed an AST or Assured Shorthold Tenancy for the whole property then that includes any parking space that is part of that property UNLESS otherwise stated in your Tenancy Agreement.

If you are in any doubt whether the parking is part if the legal property you can purcase the ‘Title Plan’ for the propeerty online from the Land Registry for just £3.

Hope that helps?
