Philadelphia, PA asked in Civil Rights, Land Use & Zoning, Landlord - Tenant and Municipal Law for Maryland

Q: What are the laws for parking my live in cargo van at my family’s, single family rental home?

My mom has a money hungry landlord that I’m pretty sure has been reporting us for parking in front of my family’s home even though we have her permission and her rent is up to date. My mom has health problems so I need to be around as her oldest to help out but there’s no room to actually sleep in the house. How do I get around this problem? I’m not in pa it’s supposed to be Cecil county maryland.

A: Parking rules and regulations are typically covered in your (or your parent's) lease agreement. Additionally, if the rental property is subject to a homeowner's association, they may have additional parking rules and regulations. Further, if your vehicle is parked on a public street there may be local ordinances that regulate the vehicle.
