Hiya Guys

I bumped into a friend of mine today who told me the block of flats he lives in (he owns his flat) has now started clamping people who park in his carpark without a pass in their window. however he got clamped because his pass fell on the floor of his car.
However this is his parking space that is shown on his deeds.
surley that means the clamper was trespassing whilst he illegally immobolised his car.
The scampler would not release his car until he paid £110
Surely this isnt legal

Clamping in this country is needed but is despite reform out of control.

It is complex... he has a lease for the land and the outside of the flat. he owns the inside of the flat

Most blocks of flats are managed by a management committee. Your friend or the previous owner delegated their rights to the management committee to a clamping firm.

When you buy a flat you usually sign the lease and agree to abide to rules.

I think you will find more detailed knowledge on www.pepipoo.com forums who have a parking section

I would buy a clamp and clamp the parking van. Then charge them a release fee.

Should they cut up rough, try to slice through the clamp, or whine to the police, then they'd set a precedence for people clamped by them! :D
