  • parking problem

    I rent a flat in purpose built block with off street parking.
    My land lady owns a share of the freehold but is not resident in the building.
    The directors of the property decided to restrict parking by issuing permits,but only to resident shareholders which excluded our land lady.

    My question is, can it be legal to restrict the facilities to such an extent even though my land lady owns an equal share of the building and pays the same service charge ?

    This depends on the wording of OP's landlady's lease and whether it contains any specific right to park on the area in question.

      The flat will come with an allocated parking space. It is unreasonable to withdraw this for who ever is living in the property whether rented or not.
      Surely when your landlady wants to visit her property should would have a right to park in her space.

      Contact your landlady and get her to fight the battle for you.

        New Homes Expert is right, this really isn't your fight. In fact your landlady should be spitting bullets about this, because when you decide to move and she needs to get new tenants in, she's going to find the property a lot less rentable without allocated parking. You should definitely approach your landlady rather than trying to deal with the problem yourself.
