Saratoga Springs, NY asked in Real Estate Law and Landlord - Tenant for Massachusetts

Q: Can I get my condo Title revised so that it changes the parking spot that goes with the unit? If so, how do I do this?

Background: I recently discovered that my condo unit’s first tenant had switched parking spaces with a tenant on the opposite side the their building. This gave each party a spot right outside their own unit. When I got a new tenant they continued with that spot. My current tenant wants to buy the condo, but they also want to keep using that parking spot right outside the unit.

Am I correct that both my Title and the Title of the other unit participating in the switch would need to be revised?

My condo is located in Massachusetts.

Thank you

A: Yes. If parking spaces in your condo. are deeded, you would have to trade deeds with the other unit/parking space owner. Your could also give each other reciprocal easements or licenses. If parking spaces are assigned by the condo. you might be able to get the board of trustees to switch assignments. Either way, the owner who has a right to the other space will have to agree, so I suggest you start by contacting that person.
