Dear Mister Condo,
Does my condo association have the right to ask for a copy of my car registration? They want the license plate number which is ok, but I don’t think they should have the right to a copy of my car registration. Thanks.
Mister Condo replies:
D.F., yes, your condo association is well within their rights to request a copy of your registration as long as the condo’s by-laws require that all vehicles on the property be registered. There are a couple of reasons for this. The association wants to make sure that all vehicles are registered and insured so as to limit the association’s liability in the event of a mishap. Also, unregistered vehicles can become real eyesores as they are likely to be left uncared for and parked on association grounds for long periods of time. Happy motoring!
