The "spot" is in the street and is not property owned by the landlord. If parking is legal on the street, then anyone may park there. It is not a service reduction (there's no indication this tenant is rent regulated). But blocking a driveway is another issue -- determined by local authorities. Some municipalities might distinguish what's known as an "active" driveway. Either way, it's not the landlord's to give away or rent.
: This is a reduction of service by your Landlord and he must reduce your rent or sort out the problem.
: To the best of my knowledge your Landlord is the only person who can complain about someone parking in front of his driveway,as I always say put it in writing to your landlord stating that he must sort out this problem or reduce your rent accordingly or you consider that grounds to break the lease.Return receipt requested.
: Good luck,please let us know the outcome.
