    Public Right of Way / BOAT

    Hope someone can help me!
    I have bought a property with a covenant which allows 'to pass and repass with or without vehicles at all times and for all purposes connected with the use and enjoyment of the retained land'.
    My problem is that the road in question is being obstructed by a neighbours vehicle (parking their car there when visitors come as they do not have adequate parking on their own drive).
    The road is access to my property and is also an emergency exit for a business.
    Does anybody know if (being the owner) I can put up adequate signs, can anyone advise me of any rights I have? I know that the public have rights but do I to enforce the 'no parking' rule?
    Thank you

    That's not a public right of way, as the right only exists in relation to use of the retained land.

    Pass and repass rights don't give the right to park, so parking is a trespass, and the normal remedies for trespass apply.

      Please avoid posting in threads more than 6 months old, and even then post only if you have something of significant value to add. Old threads can contain legally out of date advice.

      I've been using the forums for a couple of years now and have always found them interesting and informative as well as often very helpful. I usually search for answers to my questions in existing threads, however there doesn't appear to be a quick and easy way of doing this, so I end up scanning through...

      I was recently, quite rightly, criticised by the moderator for trying to exceed my role on the forum. The moderation was fair, reasonable and balanced. I was disappointed to be labelled a troll. Something I've always associated with foul and aggressive internet use. I've always tried to promote...

      Thanks moderators I appreciate the clarity and the factors you consider ( very reasonable )
      Its a shame that people who are courteous and knowledgeable such as Lawcruncher should suffer abuse.

      Pretty shoddy treatment indeed but try posting about the possibility of a house price rise on the anti-landlord website you're a member of.

      I pretty much go with the definition that Mrs Mug posted above, so when I see someone accusing another forum member of ‘trolling’ then that is likely to attract my attention in a negative way for the person making the accusation.

      If I see a new member posting such an accusation openly...

      Thanks. Perhaps criticising some of the manner of expression used could be defined as off-topic. In that case, guilty, but I don't accept I've done any else.
