Parking and Storage
Step 2: Legal considerations
Parking & storage provisions and agreements
Your first step should always be to check what your governing documents say so you can determine what is allowed in your community. Provisions on parking and storage are most likely found in the declaration or rules.
Poor maintenance of the condo can also lead to parking or storage issues, such as a person being unable to use their parking or storage spaces because of leaks or uneven paving. Generally, condo corporations are responsible for repairing common elements, but the governing documents will outline the responsibilities for each specific situation.
Addressing parking and storage issues
Condo boards or owners may take legal action against residents that contravene the provisions in the condo corporation’s governing documents that govern parking or storage, including by filing an application with the Condominium Authority Tribunal.
Owners can also take action against a corporation that is either causing a parking or storage issue, or is not taking adequate steps to address a parking or storage issue caused by other residents.
Only owners and condo corporations can file cases with the Tribunal. Tenants or other non-owner occupants should contact the unit owner if they have a parking or storage issue.
