Dear Mister Condo,
I know that we need to allow handicap-accessible parking. My question is who is responsible for the cost of the sign and installation cost?
Mister Condo replies:
S.Z., unless you have state or local laws that say differently, any allowed modification to association-owned property, such as a parking lot, is usually done at the expense of the requestor who also agrees to maintain and upkeep the sign. Many associations simply pay for this themselves but it is not generally required. Also, the federal law requires that “reasonable accommodation” be made. There are times when there is no reasonable accommodation available, in which case the association may not be able to offer the accommodation because it is too expensive or difficult to do so. All the best!
