Here’s a Quick 4-1-1 on the best way HOAs/condos can effectively handle owners who violate community parking restrictions.

The Most common parking issues in HOAs/condos are the following: overnight on-street parking; and illegal parking of RVs, campers, commercial vehicles, boats, trailers on streets/common areas or on an owner’s property.

What is the best way to handle parking violations in an HOA/Condo?

  1. Check your association’s documents: What do they say about parking? Is there a violation by the resident?
  2. A question to think about: Who will document the parking violation? Board, Owner’s reporting, security patrol or the manager?
  3. What are some enforcement options an association has regarding parking violations: letters, fines, towing, sticky stickers on driver’s window, wheel boots, lawsuits against an owner, and filing a complaint with the Arizona Department of Real Estate (“ADRE”).
