Within condominiums, there are always a lot of questions surrounding parking, but not a lot of answers. We are breaking down some frequently asked parking questions to make your life easier.

Q: Can a unit owner sell their parking spot?
A: No. An assigned parking space in an association cannot be sold. However, if the parking spot is deeded separately to the owner, meaning it has its own PIN (Property Identification Number) and is taxed separately, the spot can be sold. 

Q: Can associations sell unassigned spaces?
A: No. Parking spaces are common elements that cannot be sold.

Q: Can unit owners exchange assigned parking spaces?
A: It depends on the governing documents of the specific association. You will need to review your Declaration and Bylaws to determine how parking spaces are handled.

Q: Can a board force an owner to park in the unit’s assigned space?
A: Yes. The board should adopt parking policies that require owners to park in their assigned spaces.

Q: Can the board force owners to change their assigned spaces?
A: Sometimes. Some documents allow boards to switch owners’ parking spaces, but if the spaces are legally attached to a unit, they cannot.
