Car parking area sold and now chargeable

Hi,

One of my houses is ex council, the estate like many includes little closes with garages and parking spaces. The housing association managing the estate sold the closes to a garage letting company who now also charge for the parking spaces. Has anyone else seen similar and had success fighting this practice? The housing association could and I think should have covenanted no charging for parking when they sold the land.

Residents should have bought it… Then again if such a clause were in it, it would not get sold > i have seen loads of these up for sale on Rightmove… The one buying it has to maintain the place as well,

Coulda woulda shoulda. Sadly it’s not like planning permission, there was no requirement to let anyone know, else I’d have probably bought it.

I always wondered who would buy them ,and why? Now I know the answer !
