Q: I recently noticed that my indoor parking unit space is smaller then the one next to me. This didn’t seem right to me so I acquired the building plan that is filed with the municipal office. After reviewing the plan very carefully it is quite clear that I purchased a parking unit that is supposed to be the same size as the one next to me. What should I do to rectify this situation?
A: Write to the board of directors and inform them of your findings regarding your parking spot. Request a response from the board as soon as possible. This error will not only affect you but could also affect the condo owner who parks beside you.
This might be a simple error that only requires re-painting of the lines on the floor of the parking lot to give you your proper space. On the other hand it could be a more complicated issue that requires the services of a condominium lawyer. The board has an obligation to address your concern so that matters can proceed in the correct manner. If you are not satisfied with the response of the board then speak with your condo lawyer about what can be done to solve the problem.
Since you purchased a parking unit of a specific size and the unit you have is not that size, the matter will be settled according to the building plans and the documents you signed at the time of your closing.
