Sras Posted October 20, 2010 Share Posted October 20, 2010 I'm currently having a dispute with a neighbour over a parking situation. There is a lane behind both of our houses and several people park there, including him. About a month ago he pulled up next to me while I was in my car and told me that I couldn't park there and if I continued to do so his neighbour "who works for the council" was going to have me towed. My car does not block the lane (it's a suzuki mighty boy), cars could easily fit through a smaller gap and none of the other residents who park beyond me have complained. I couldn't find any information on parking requirements so continued to park there every now and then, and he continued to park there every day. When loading a car with furniture to move stuff out of the apartment that a previous tennant had left the guy came in through my storage room, through the private building right to my apartment door to tell me to move the car. This time the car was blocking the road a bit as it was bigger to carry everything but considering there had been 4 people in and out all day he could have waited until one came back down instead of trespassing - I wouldn't walk through his backyard to knock on his back door. After this I received a note tellling me to stop parking there and I replied stating that he didn't harrass anyone else who parked their and he also parked in the same area. This was followed by another note telling me not to "embarrass" myself further attached to a map of the area with a 2 yr old document stating that cars were not allowed to obstruct the laneway/driveways/doorways, which my car does not. It's probably worth noting that I'd parked there for a couple of months before he first spoke to me and this was shortly after someone hit my car, the paint left on my car is very similar to his car colour. I spoke to another neighbour who parks there and he told me that there was no problem and he had not been contacted in any way regarding this issue. I'm going to the council today to try to organise a meeting to discuss the matter so that I can at least get my facts straight for the next time he bothers me. So having been singled out, threatened, had him enter my property without permission, and had on going harassment for more than a month I'm wondering if it is valid for me to seek advice from the police or if I'm just being paranoid? Paranoia is a problem for me, especially when dealing with other people so I can't always trust my own judgement. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
