    Look at a proper storage site. It will make your insurance cheaper as well as being safer than just parking on your drive.

    You may even find you make a net saving.

    We have to park ours away from home due to a lack of MH sized parking, we already have 2 cars on the drive and my mid life crisis in the garage, if you use somewhere with 24hr access it mitigates the inconvenience of not being able to just jump in the van on a Friday after work.

    What a right pain of a landlord, maybe storage is the answer,but when he says or els what does he mean,move out? Get the sack from work? Both?. Hope you get it sorted out

    I presume that you have a Tenancy Agreement that has been signed by you and your landlord ?

    Dose it say anything in the Agreement anything about parking of vehicles or any vehicles that are not permitted ?

    Are there any other similar vehicles ie. Motor Homes, Caravans, or Commercial type vehicles that are parked at properties near by ?

    Usually the only person who can stipulate ie put a covenant on the parking of vehicles at a property, is the builder. Does the builder of your property own the house/Estate/Development ? Builders usually do this so that parking of this type of vehicles does not put off any potential buyers.

    At the end of the day if the vehicle is not causing an obstruction then what is the problem.

    Maybe you should speak to Citizens Advice.

    The landlord can give notice that they will be terminating the tenancy at the end of the 6 months or give two months notice if the tenancy has become a periodic tenancy. I assume that is what they would do as the "or else".

    Does he think Queen Victoria is still on the throne?
    He obviously expects you to tug the forelock and be grateful he allows you a few hours off on Christmas day!

    Bloody farmers!

    Hi.
    Perhaps the poster knows the old saying,"Never bite the hand that feeds you". The 60's have long gone when you could leave one job on a tuesday and start another wednesday,i would favour the storage route,THEN find another job in the future. Best of luck.

    Jealousy makes people to nasty things unfortunately.

    Feel for you but as others have said, your home and job are your life - parking in storage is not the end of the world (or your motorhome FUN!!!)

    It would be good to know the EXACT reason for the 'ultimatum' ... I wonder if there is a covenant on the property which precludes the keeping of caravans (and thereby MHs) in FRONT of the property line.

    Did you tell your 'boss/landlord' that you were getting a MH and would be parking it at home?

    I empathise with you but you wouldn't be the first to fall foul of some 'restrictions' at home.

    Surely it would have been better to ask before parking . I could park on the front of our property but I don't think its fair on my neighbours so its storage for us

    with no tenancy agreement he cannot legally give you notice. likewise he cannot sack you because of the vehicle you drive. the law is on your side not his
