Condo parking

Does anyone have any issues with their HOA regarding parking? Don't expect any issues considering the extended cab is still considered a conversion van and not a RV. Would like to hear any of your comments.

I got a notice from my HOA right after I got mine and had parked in the driveway. However at that time there are also two commercial Sprinter vans parked in driveways. When I pointed that out, I never heard from them again. My attorney said the first thing to ask them is how much money do they have in their Legal Defense Fund. Most homes associations don't have a large balance in their account. However for those that do, you may have some problems if they want to pursue it.

If u signed up for HOA, attend meeting and befriend officers. Find out the way they approach things... Including legal fees... Some require you to pay them to sue you !

I am in a very strict HOA with only 38 units that allows no parking on the street and no boats or rvs in the drive way. Once in awhile I park overnight but generally try not to cause any problems in the neighborhood.

Threatening a lawsuit should be the last resort, not the first. I never seriously pursued it when I lived in a condo, and I suspect they wouldn't have been thrilled with it, but they also allowed parking for boats so I suspect I could've used that avenue.

I had enough trouble getting them to remember they agreed to let me back it into the spot for safety reasons; I kept getting notices about it not being front-in.

I live in an apartment complex, not a condo, but in some ways that's worse, because I don't even have reserved parking, let alone a private driveway. In my community, there is a zoning regulation that states that no RVs can be parked in front of the residence; the distance from the street to the RV has to be greater than the distance from the street to the residence.

As a conversion van, my Interstate is exempt from that zoning regulation, but I follow it religiously nonethless.

The one and only time I parked my Interstate in front, the same day I bought it, the RV was burglarized. Now I park in back inside a gated parking lot, so it's not visible from the street and there are fewer people tempted to attempt a break-in. And I have a high-end alarm system installed with a two-way remote so I can hear more easily if something sets off the alarm.
