Mount Juliet, TN asked in Civil Litigation for Tennessee

Q: Can you tell me if at residential property we are living needs to supply the residents with adequate parking?

When we moved to this new residence in June we were told parking was first come, first serve. After we registered our vehicles with them, as there are 2 of us to this household with 2 cars, they are now telling us both of us cannot park here and have to park 1 car in another lot which is not owned by them. In addition, my husband is disabled and the walk is too much for him to park this far away.

A: No, to my knowledge there is no law that would require residential properties to provide any certain amount of parking spaces. For example, many large cities in the US do not have any parking included in the residential leases. Yet, even without a legal requirement for them to provide the parking, you could send a letter to them explaining your husband's disability and explaining that he cannot walk that far. If that does not work, you may want to consult with an attorney. Good luck.
