Areas of Law / Property

We live in a semi detached bungalow, which has a shared driveway. Our neighbour regularly blocks access to our garage, which isn’t usually a problem. But although we own our property leasehold and theirs is freehold, am I right in thinking they are not actually entitled to do this?

Your title deeds may contain rules about car parking and the like which you could enforce, if the worst came to the worst, via an injunction. Freehold or leasehold ownership won’t affect this. Take your deeds to a solicitor, or if you bought your property comparatively recently you may be able to inspect them online. I’m afraid however that this is a common problem where properties have shared access. A dispute can make it difficult to sell your property.
