Board Condominium Governance Parking Rules Enforcement

Condo Renter Has Seven Vehicles on Property!

K.L. from outside of Connecticut writes:

Dear Mister Condo,

Can the condo board make a rule on how many cars a unit can have? A renter has 7 and they say they can’t make a rule!

Mister Condo replies:

K.L., that is a lot of cars for any condo dweller! The association may not be able to make a rule about how many cars any unit owner or renter may own BUT they can certainly make rules about how many vehicles can be stored on association property. Where does this renter keep all of these vehicles? Typically, condo units come with one or two assigned parking spaces and or a garage space. There is also visitor parking in many associations which is typically owned and governed by the Board. I do not know of any associations that allow an unlimited number of vehicles on the common grounds and for good reason. There isn’t enough space! If the association’s governance documents are silent on the use of the association-owned parking lots, it is time to add them. If the association has an attorney, this would be a perfect time to check in with him or her and explain the problem and have him or her draft the resolution so the Board can adopt it. Problem solved. Good luck!

  1. Are there residents who are wanting for parking spots? If so this problem needs to be addressed. If not you need to get a life and mind your own business and stop taking inventory of other people’s possessions.

    1. This continuous problem will out live us for absolute sure! Although, there could be less stress if honest communication starting with landlords rental packages or in escrow, the HOA packages for the buyer, at least giving the tenant or buyer a formal heads up on limited parking within the community aside from the assigned spots per home. #community living
