Q. A homeowner in our association has been parking a vehicle with no tag in one of his two parking spaces for over three years. He has two other drivable vehicles taking up parking spaces in the guest parking area. Our rules state that uninspected, unregistered, unlicensed, abandoned or junk vehicles are not permitted on condominium property and further, that no vehicle may be stored on the common or limited common property. What can be done about this?
Part of the answer to your question depends on whether an owner’s assigned parking spaces are deeded to the owner along with his unit, or if they are common elements.If the spaces are deeded, then the association’s board, by itself, cannot impose additional restrictions on the use of those deeded spaces on top of whatever restrictions are already in the declaration. Adding additional restrictions to property owned by the homeowner would require an amendment to your declaration, approved by at least two-thirds of the voting power in the association.
