Sectional title corner – He’s using my parking so does he have to pay me rent?
Will I be able to claim for usage of my parking spot by the building manager from the date the property was registered in my name which was the beginning of 2013? – Cynthia
Hi Cynthia, the parking bays in sectional title schemes are rentals. If someone used a parking bay that you are renting then you can have them pay the rent for that period (if agreed by both parties).
Ed note: Unless the sectional scheme’s registered plan provides exclusive use rights on a parking bay to a specific unit, you are merely “renting” the bay. If you are interested in legally linking parking bays to housing units, your body corporate will need to create rights to exclusive use areas. Find out how, here
