  • Residential car park and problematic household...

    Hi all,

    I was hoping someone would be able to give us some advice regarding some issues with our residential car park that are creating a lot of problems around the neighbourhood (Manchester UK). We had a car park built at the back of our houses (a row of terraces), its completely residential and each house has two, numbered spaces. There is ten houses in total. The car park has a large, electric gate that can be opened via controllers or by a keypad. For the maintenance, electric and insurance each household pays £200 per year. This was agreed in a contract along with a series of terms. Each space is privately owned but the rode is held as a right of way collective.

    One household has now not paid for three years (£600), we know they can afford it, so money isn’t the issue. However, as they own several homes the owners are never here. They are ignoring all the letters from the car park manegment company and now their daughter is staying in the house. She is making use of their space but she is also allowing her friends to park in the ‘rode’ in front of their spaces. This issue is specifically mentioned in the car park agreement as being prohibited.

    What options do we have against this household, relationships are increasing strained and things are becoming outwardly hostile. They have signed a contract (drew up by a solicitor) that agrees that they will pay the annual maintenance and that they will stray within the boundaries of their spaces. Does anyone have any suggestions how we can deal with these situations? Thanks in advance for any and all help.

    All the best,

    1. A letter before action to the offending household.
    2 A quite word with daughter re incorrect parking.
    3. Change the keypad code / controller code. If all else fails.
