    boundaries of pathway to home

    boundaries of pathway to home 6th Dec 18 at 5:35 PM
    I share a partway that leads into my house.
    this partway is owned by my neighbor.
    I do have the right of way so this partway can not be obstructed.
    I have paring for two car, however, my neighbor does not..
    so they part two cars in front of they home, which means they are only giving me enough room to squeeze past my car and theirs and i can hardly open my car door to get out or in my car.

    i am not sure where i stand...? i am assuming there is not much i can do - they are not the approachable type

    That's it? That's ALL this is about?

    The black car is parked (just) within the painted line. Could be parked better, but let's face it, that's hardly rare. The spaces could probably be more generous, but - again - hardly rare.

    How do you get from the pavement to the front door (which, presumably the photographer is standing in front of) with two bags of shopping or a baby in a pram or car seat?

    Going round the otherside of which car? The black one is on the OP's land the red one is on the land belonging to next door. The access to the OP's house is up the pathway between the two cars.



    It doesn't look as if there is much space between the front of the black car and the wall.

    Ah, my bad - I was assuming the black 206 was the offender here, and the red 500 was the OPs in the OP's space.

    If the 500 is parked blocking a footpath, then it's very clearcut as to what the issue is.

    @Cakeguys: there was white lines painted a few months go, however these lines were moved about three days ago.
    The residents did not like it, basically, there is a parking issue, most houses have a garage and one allocated parking - while mine - the only house on the road, has two parking spaces, but no garage.
    so by moving the lines it gave those homeowners more space without a visual boundaries...

    The removal of the lines didn't give people more space it just gave them the opportunity to park in places that were not the allocated spaces on their deeds and marked out by white lines.



    Your neighbours are not allowed to block your right of way.

    The "L" shape of white line visible at the rear of the two cars shows the OPs car (Black) parked in a designated parking space.

    It also shows that the red car is not in a designated space as that line would need to be a "T" if it was.
