Dear Mister Condo,
Is there a law about parking that the home owner on how many spots they get?
Mister Condo replies:
N.B., I am not an attorney so I cannot guarantee you that there are no laws about how many parking spots a homeowner gets when they purchase a condo but I can tell you that the condo documents and initial blueprints are a good place to start. Usually, condo owners have assigned parking (those numbered spaces found in most condo parking lots) and may also have access to visitor parking. The rules on vehicles vary from condo to condo but since parking is usually at a premium most unit owners are limited to their assigned spot(s) with the Visitor parking reserved for guests of all units. It is also not unusual for condos to enforce their parking rules with fines and even towing when unit owners don’t follow the rules. I get numerous questions about fire zone parking, “T” parking (where one care parks perpendicular to one or more cars), and even cars parking in someone else’s assigned spot. Needless to say, all of these infractions create tension and animosity amongst neighbors and should be avoided. Find out what the rules are at your community and enjoy your parking lot. All the best!
