We own a take away in the UK and according to the survey that we have done a couple of days ago, a car park space located directly behind our take away is also a part of our property.
Next to our take away is a small hire centre that rents out building machinerys to other businesses.
Half of the car park is owned by this hire centre, but with the exception of the space behind our take away and the space behind another shop within the same area.
Over the past two years, the hire centre has been placing giant containers inside the car park for storing their tools. But since those containers are within their property, no one actually complained about them being there. About a month ago, my partner has agreed to allow them to place a container in the space behind our take away because they do not have any space left to put it. Rescently we wanted to claim back that space for car parking purposes, so we went and spoke to him about removing that container from the space. He refused to remove the containers and is now claiming it to be a part of his property. We showed him the survey, which he then agreed to move the containers from our property, but as of today the containers are still there. Since this inccident happened in a private area, the council and the police are unable to do anything about it, and we don't have the money to afford the costs of being represented by a lawyer.
Therefore we are wondering if its possible to move the container away from our property without the agreement of the owner of the container? Or are there any other ways to reclaim my space?
