I have recently been lucky enough to buy a long term place to live. It is freehold with various conditions, including a modest service charge for upkeep of communal areas and an allocated parking space in a shared parking area.
How do I find out the exact conditions/rights regarding the shared parking space?
In the material I got and looked through with the conveyancing solicitors, I only saw the parking space marked in a colour different to the main plot. I do not recall any specific conditions on the parking, neither did I see these on a second pass through the documents.
I think to be sure I need to obtain transfer deeds - if so are these accessible through the title register for the house plot or do I need to find a separate title including the shared parking area?
I am in the unfortunate situation of being charged for parking in my designated parking space while I was waiting for permits to arrive.
The parking enforcement company insists it is the right decision and that it cannot give me any details of their legal basis for doing so due to client confidentiality.
The management company to which I pay the service charges has some dealings with the parking enforcement company, but insists they did not set up and do not manage the agreement, they just pass on whitelisted car registration numbers and issue parking permits on behalf of the enforcement company.
They refer to the owner of the shared area. The owner in turn wonder why the management company is not more helpful, but suggest I look up "transfer deeds".
