He should be concerned as in the future when he comes to sell his flat these people may claim to the new owner that they have some right to use the garden because of maybe some stupid law that says if they have been using it for a period of time they acquire certain rights.

My grandad let out a field to a neighbour as a favour and when we came to sell the house and land after he died, the neighbours claimed some such right so we had to sell the house without the land and 20 years later we still receive rent- thats what happens when you try to be nice to people.
