Dear Mister Condo,
Can I park my car and a small motorcycle in my underground parking spot?
Mister Condo replies:
H.Y., it depends on how your parking lot rules read. This is a common issue all across the country. Unit owners feel they can park more than one vehicle in their parking space. If the Board allows it, no problem. However, if the association’s rules on parking state that only one vehicle may be parked in any one space, and the Board elects to enforce that rule, then you cannot. If your parking rules are silent on the subject or have no limits on how many vehicles are allowed per parking space, you might be within your rights to do so. However, the Board can simply institute more specific parking rules that would limit your ability to do so. Typically, one vehicle per spot is the rule. If you and enough fellow unit owners wish to change the parking rules in favor of allowing multiple vehicles per space, you can ask the Board to pass a rule allowing you to do so. All the best!
