Is Handicapped Parking Required at My Condo?

M.L. from outside of Connecticut writes:

Dear Mister Condo,

I will like to know if a condo association is required to have handicap parking space and how many? Condo is 173 units and built in 1986.

Mister Condo replies:

M.L., the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) does require handicapped parking and access for many public buildings and businesses. Further, some states have additional requirements for public properties to provide handicapped parking and access. However, for the most part, condominiums are not public property. They are typically private property and exempt from many of the requirements of the ADA. That being said, I am not an attorney and you would be wise to seek a legal opinion from a qualified local attorney who could give you a more definitive answer. Good luck!

  1. Typically the requirement is detailed with in the city or township by-laws and is addressed at time of build. If you review the architectural drawings the number of parking to include visitors parking is detailed and may list accessible parking number the developer had to assign at time of permit. Failing that one should call the by-law office for specific regulation and how it affects the visitors parking and residential parking.
