    A few weeks ago my motorhome was vandalised outside my house (on my drive) so I decided to park it somewhere else. So I moved it to my “better half’s”, so the van is parked on her drive and she lives in a semi.

    Last week we were in France and when we got back home the neighbour asked if we could move the van as it was restricting the daylight into her kitchen.

    This has not prevented he letting out her 3 dogs to pee and pooh all over our garden.
    Question, what is the legal position re both issues?

    Unless there is a covenant or local authority by-law preventing parking of a large vehicle on the property then there should be nothing legally to stop the parking.

    Covenants are normally between the original builder and the property owner so would have to be enforced by the builder - if they are still in business and/or can be bothered.

    Local authority by-laws regarding parking of vehicles tend to be applied to their own housing estates rather than private developments.

    The "right to light" argument normally arises as a result of planning applications or new permanent structures. A Google search will point to the several ways in which a right can arise.

    As regards the dogs, The Rule in Rylands v Fletcher (1868) probably applies:

    If it's causing arguments can't you put the car on the road during the day and back on the drive at night? It's a difficult situation no matter where you stand legally, have you explained the situation to the neighbour? Call the citizens advice bureau and get some quick advice!

    Tell the neighbours to sod off :Eeek: , then walk round with a shovel and pick up the dog crap and throw it at their walls. :thumb:

    Worked a treat with our neighbours we no longer have dogs crapping all over the place and as we no longer speak to them dont have any issues with whats parked on the driveway either :thumb:
