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!
