Dear Mister Condo,
Under my lease I am allowed 2 parking spaces. We are a family of 4 and have 4 cars. I registered all with “the board” and parked the extra 2 in visitors. They got towed. So I requested to park them in visitors, the board said no!
Mister Condo replies:
C.C., parking lots within community associations like condominiums are routinely owned, governed, and managed by the association’s Board of Directors who have the right and the responsibility of managing the association’s common elements, such as the parking lot. As you have noted, under your lease, you are allowed two parking spaces. Unless you have the ability to magically fit four cars in two parking spaces, you can’t possibly expect that the association will allow you to park more than two cars on the property. You will need to seek an “off property” solution for your extra cars. All the best!
