Board Condominium Governance Parking Rules Enforcement

Does Condo’s Two Car Parking Limit Extend to Handicapped?

A.D. from Middlesex County writes:

Dear Mister Condo,

Hi. I live in a condominium complex that has several handicapped parking spots. Our board of directors recently enacted a two car per unit parking limitation. I am disabled and use one of our handicapped parking spots with a valid placard. Can the BOD’s legally tow my car from our parking lot while the placard is visibly displayed?

Mister Condo replies:

A.D., I am not fully sure I understand your question. Are you parking more than two cars on the common parking areas? If so, you are violating the new rule and the Board may have the ability to have your car towed for the infraction. If you are simply parking your car in a designated handicapped area and not violating the association’s two car rule or any other parking rule, I can’t think why you would think your car would be towed. If you are using your two car allotment for other vehicles AND you park your third car in the handicapped parking area, one of your extra cars (maybe your handicapped placard car) may be subject to towing as you are in violation of the association’s parking rules. Let’s hope it doesn’t come to that. Good luck!
