        The car was parked at my friends front house which is rented by her mother and all neighbors park there. So its a matter of house blocks and anyone living there can park there.

              Then it is valid, you are not able to park a SORN vehicle on the public road, https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...tification.pdf please see point 3.
              Sorry i'm just thinking out loud, it might be irrelevant, I am not employed in anyway in the legal profession, please ensure you research any advice I give before using it I have been known to be wrong on multiple occasions.

                  Even privately owned car parks (e,g Shopping centre or pub car parks) are treated as public if the public have access to them,
