Assigned is not the same as deeded. If the space were deeded, it would be recorded in public records.
I'm guessing since you mention the word "assigned" that these spaces were not deeded and were assigned by the Board.
Check your condo docs for the board's powers with relation to the parking lot. Odds are there is specific wording allowing the board members to reassign spaces.
Deeded vs Assigned sounds right. I'd like to know if anyone else has any comments.
You will need to verify if your parking space is deeded to your unit, if not, then the board can change the parking space to accommodate the association needs, if you get a new parking space make sure that this parking space is deeded to your unit if not will happen the same, also check your condo docs to seek what it says about parking spaces
You can verify if one of the parking spaces that were changes were deeded to any unit , in the event that happen you can request to be treating equally and request that parking space.
If the spaces are assigned and not deeded, the individual will not be able to get them deeded to them, as they are common elements or limited common elements and the board doesn't have the right to transfer ownership of the common elements or limited common elements over to a unit owner.
I flew down from CT for my scheduled HOA board meeting to take place Monday May 10, 2010. I went to our property manager today (5/7/2010) and asked for a copy of the agenda. Our property manager said the meeting has been changed to May 17th. I went to one of the board members and asked him about this date change and he knew nothing about the board meeting date change. He is a board member!The board member told me he has received no notification ( email, letter, phone...) of the board meeting change! We both are wondering what we can do? Is there a timeframe when notification should be sent out? Should a board member be asked/advised when a scheduled board meeting has been changed? We have a schedule of our board meetings. Should we have been sent an update?
In florida (assuming that's where you are) the amount of time required for meeting notices depends upon the meeting type. I.e., budget, budget amendment, elections, meeting to modify / amend the documents or rules, or just a regular meeting.
If the meeting is just a regular meeting only 48 hour notice is required.
I live in a condo in florida with a deeded parking space. The spot is deeded and a gate has been placed in front of and in between two condo buildings, causing a gateway and trespass on my deeded spot, and encroachment. The gate only opens one way, and I found gate hitting my car. My BOD of directors said the other building put it in and it is my problem. This has created a common area on my parking spot, and devalued my property, and I do not know what to do. Will I have to spend money to get a lawyer, or could I bring this to small claims court (less expensive option), to get gate removed entirely? I don't know how this could have happened, or what to do. I wrote sister building, and they told me they won't removed it without a letter from my BOD, and they BOD say, it was put in a while ago, that a chain and lock is on it (until my neighbors ask it be removed and it has been), and the matter is closed. This seems so entirely illegal, and if I hadn't said anything, I would have lost the spot entirely! I had a RE contract,(that fell apart), which brought the entire situation acutely to my attention! Please help/advise, and Thank You!
I have recently purchased a condo unit and the previous owner had 2 deeded parking spaces. After the purchase I was told that one of them had been sold. I thought a deeded space was apertenant to the condo unit and could not be sold off.
In Maryland can an assocation take your parking for back fees due ? Is this legal ?
I wish I knew the right answer for you. I would keep communicating with the Association. You shouldn't lose a parking spot that is assigned to you through your lease. Maybe they need to build a larger parking lot. http://www.valleypowersweep.com/en/parking_lot_maintenance_parkade_maintenance.html
I would be really upset if they took away my parking spot. Our association did something really strange a couple of weeks ago. They went through the parking lot, and they had a company remove all of the lines. I think they are going to put in new parking lines, but it has been almost 3 weeks, and they haven't done anything yet. http://www.brimbanklinemarking.com.au/line_removal.html
I agree with you Emily, I would be so upset if they took away my deeded parking spot. I have the perfect spot in my company parking lot. It is right in the shade, and is close enough to the office, yet close enough to the exit to get out quickly if there is traffic. http://www.jacksonpaving.com.au/Commercial
