A couple of years ago the unit next to mine was sold to the current owners who had been told that the parking spot next to the unit belonged to that unit. In fact, our strata has scramble parking which they discovered as soon as they moved in.
After a matter of weeks they sent a letter to our strata managers asking that I not park in that spot. The strata manager replied that I was perfectly entitled to park there, which I continued to do although such instances were rare as I usually ride a bike to work and when I do drive I get home later than they do so that they have parked there.
After a weekend away they returned to find me parked there and another car belonging to a tradesman in the adjacent spot. They parked in front of my car, blocking me in. I was then threatened by them after saying that I was going to send a photo to the strata manager which I did. The strata manager sent them a letter to which they responded that hey had been unpacking their car which was not true as I was out there for at least 20 minutes and I did not see them go to the car at all.
They have chosen to ignore me for all this time but now have bought a second car which seems odd as only one of them drives, the husband stays home and does not drive or work.
Recently they have started parking both cars in these 2 spots which are between 2 buildings meaning that I have to park further away which of itself doesn’t bother me. However, I still asked them not to park in both spots as it would appear to be selfish. I was told that they would do as they liked and that I was upset because I no longer get my way, although how they would know what I think escapes me given that they have never had a conversation with me other than to threaten to hurt me. Which he could easily do being a black belt in karate.
As they can only drive one car at a time they are now parking in that first spot all the time as when someone else is parked in the second spot they shuffle the cars depending on which car they take out. Effectively they have privatised a common property parking spot. Are they allowed to do this?
