In practice this is very difficult to do anything about. I know because it happened to me. The police weren't interested unless any damage was done to the property, and the council weren't interested unless the pavement was being blocked. Similarly, I am a lawyer and my litigation colleagues said there was pretty much nothing I could do about it except stick a sticker in the window asking them not to park there.

Another Perspective

It must depend on your jurisdiction. If a car blocks your driveway, preventing you from accessing it, the car can and will be towed by the local police and a citation will be issued. Most municipalities in the United States have town and city ordinances regarding how close a driver can park to a driveway. For example, there is a five foot limit locally. The police are happy to oblige when a property owner complains. If the car is parked on private property it certainly can be towed. If you are the owner of property no one else has the right to park their car in your driveway unless you have given them permission.

Our house was built 2.5 years ago and our neighbor's house was done 2 years ago About 1 year ago our neighbors had a survey done and found out their driveway goes through our property What do we do?

There is a range of possibilities, depending on how long you plan to stay and whether or not you want to be friendly with your neighbors: * You can sell them the land under the driveway, which could also allow them to tear out the driveway and put in something worse, * sell them an easement to use that part of your property to cross your land, which also means it can be used as a driveway forever, * license this particular owner to use the driveway (or the driveway easement) either annually, or until they sell the house or remove the driveway, * ask them to move their driveway, or * sue them for trespass and force them to move the driveway. Whatever you do, put it into writing and have a local real estate attorney review it for you. If you completely ignore the problem, it will not go away, and the longer you wait, the more rights the neighbors may have (laches, estoppel, easement by prescription, adverse possession).
