Areas of Law / Property

My neighbour works for a vehicle recovery firm and is proposing to park his truck next door so he will be available for call-out round the clock. It says in the title deeds that the property must not be used in connection with business; can I prevent the truck being parked there?

If the vehicle is being parked on the road the police may be prepared to intervene if it’s causing an obstruction. The council too has powers under the Highways Act, and the planning department may intervene if the business use of the premises causes a nuisance, for example waking you and other neighbours in the middle of the night. If the vehicle is parked in your neighbour’s driveway you would probably have to go to court to enforce the covenant in your title deeds.
