A yellow Mercedes Sprinter van, has been left abandoned in the designated parking space of my flat, 19 Teasel Crescent, SE28 0LP. My tenant left a note on the windscreen for the owner to remove it, which they have not done. It has been over several months now, and it is causing a nuisance because my tenant or her visitors cannot use the designated parking space. I have checked the vehcile's tax and MOT. It has been SORN'd but the MOT expired in 2018. So it is obvious that the owner does not want to use it and has abandoned it on my property. So please can you arrange for it to be removed. Many thanks.
