I live in a ground floor flat which has private gardens front and back. The upstairs flat has its own private back garden, but no front garden.
The last two tenants of the upstairs flat seem to think they have a right to walk straight into my back garden without a by your leave from me. The garden is straight outside my living room window so their invasions of my garden is also an invasion of my privacy.
The previous tenant would happily just walk straight in, most of the time wearing just his underwear, to retrieve his dog which has gotten through the fence. The fence by the way is the responsibility of the upstairs flat and is badly in need of repair. The new tenants just tell anyone who needs access to the rear of the property to go straight into my garden - again without any word to me.
I have now padlocked the garden gate and my neighbours are furious. I've explained my reasons and told them I'm quite happy to unlock the gate to allow access if I'm asked first.
AIBU my restricting access to my garden by insisting that anyone needing to come into my garden asks first and doesn't just walk straight in.
I should point out that I'm disabled and live alone.
