What are my rights if my neighbor blocks our joint driveway?
Question Details: The boundary between our houses runs downs the centre of our driveway. We have rights to access our garages to the main road. My neighbor permits delivery vehicle, etc. to park in the driveway. Occasionally they are heavy and have caused the concrete to crack up. Not infrequently the driver uses my front lawn to gain access to his vehicle.I have spoken to the neighbor and various drivers,but have been sworn at. The deeds state that we must jointly pay to repair the drive but the neighbour does not want to know. On a number of occasions recently I have been unable to get my car in or out of my garage,except in the driver's own good time.
None of your neighbor, his guests, or his delivery people/contractors/vendors have any right to restrict your ability to use the driveway. If you are blocked from entering or exiting, you could call the police and have the ticketed and/or towed. Your right to use/access your driveway is right; the neighbor, etc. cannot infringe it.
