Does anyone know where I can get a parking post (preferably fitted as well) please?

Basically I live in a block of flats and each flat has its own car parking space. Some of my neighbours have more than 1 car so they invariably end up using my space, which of course prevents me from using it.

Sorry if my question/reason for asking it seems trivial.

Thanks for your help.

Regards, Alex.

I can't help you - but it doesn't sound trivial to me. So many utterly selfish people out there....and a lot of nice folk, too :p

You could always have a word with dear old Southwark Council. They may have a contractor.....they usually do, lol.

If it's your designated parking space you could always resort to:

Charge a 25 removal fee and you'l soon have your money back.
ONLY JOKING You don't really want to get into a feud with the neighbours, even if you're in the right.

I have a feeling that Leyland on Southwark Street (the old Brahma tea museum) sell them.

When we used to have them, they were very difficult to see and cars kept hitting them!

Would a chain, with a padlock work?

Are you allowed to install there precedence for this with other car space users having parking posts?

Speak to the freeholder / managing agent, they'll probably have experience of getting them installed on other sites, and should agree to this reasonable request. They will be none too pleased if you get these works done to their land without getting their consent (whether it's part of the leasehold or just an 'allocated space' as most are, it would need their permission).

Hello everyone,

Thanks for your suggestions/feedback.

To give you a fuller picture the block I am in has shared freehold. The lease does not specifically prohibit the installation of a car park post.

I did think of advising the managing agents of my intentions. There has been several breaches of the lease and the managing agents attitude is that it is not there remit, so I am going to go ahead.

Thanks to you who have taken the trouble to reply.

Regards, Alex.

Thanks for the information, and for taking the time to reply. I shall certainly look the company up.
