Bankers Andrew and Penny McSpadden have been involved in a parking dispute with finance company boss Sheriar Bradbury for a number of years over the size of the car parking bays outside the converted church they share in Hampstead.
The dispute escalated when art dealers Mary and Yuval Hanina paid £1.45m to buy the third house in the three-home development for their doctor daughter Sophie.
Mary Hanina claims her daughter’s space has been squeezed into an unusable slither between the other two spaces where only a ‘professional driver’ could park.
However, the McSpaddens, who are also accused of trespassing on Dr Hanina’s space, claim they are doing nothing wrong and that the problem has come from Mr Bradbury taking up more room than he should.
In response Mr Bradbury claims the whole dispute which has now reached the Central London County Court is a waste of time and could easily be solved by everyone parking a few inches along.
The court also heard the parties are fighting over the use of a bin storage area, which the McSpaddens insist is theirs. They deny that their neighbours have an automatic right to dump their rubbish in the facility.
Judge Nicholas Parfitt said he would give his judgment at a later date.
