Visitor parking or common property parking is the bugbear of most unit blocks. Whether it is owners or tenants parking in visitor’s car parking and using it like their own parking spot, or parking on common property blocking garages or allotted car spots, or even commuters using the visitors spots as free day parking whilst they commute to work. It is a common and pesky problem.
1 of the many changes dealt with under the new strata laws provides for agreements between the owners corporation and local councils for the council parking inspectors to manage the block’s unauthorised and unwanted parking and common property parking.
Watch out unauthorised car parkers – a fine or 2 may come your way.
