Unit Owner’s Car Finish Damaged by Association-Owned Tree

A.T. from outside of Connecticut writes:

Dear Mister Condo,

I have two assigned parking spaces. There is a lot of debris coming out of the tree above which destroys car paint. Am I entitled to request reassignment of parking or request tree removal from the HOA?

Mister Condo replies:

A.T., it is doubtful that you will get it but you can certainly request that the Board reassign your space or remove the tree. The Board controls the parking lot assignment and you more or less get what you get. I am sorry that there is a particularly nasty tree above your space but the Board is not obligated to do anything about that. Are you the only one effected? If not, gather a group of signatures to present top the Board. Perhaps there will be strength in numbers. Other than that, a car cover may be your best bet for protection. Good luck!

One thought on “Unit Owner’s Car Finish Damaged by Association-Owned Tree

  1. I can sympathize. My association has decided to forgo maintenance to save money thereby causing overgrowth into the parking areas. It has become an eyesore and all damaging to vehicles for a particular unit.

    Every owner should have a right to park their cars in assigned spaces without threat of damage. Best of luck to the OP.
