    Why would you think that you would?

    1. Did you have an agreement with the family member where they were paying you to rent the space to store their car, etc.?
    2. If you are in NSW, the NSW Department of Local Government has a publication "Are vehicles trespassing on your land or blocking your driveway". It has a flowchart that you may consider reviewing.
