A: The legality of a landlord's actions regarding parking may depend on the terms outlined in the lease agreement and local regulations. In Ohio, landlord-tenant laws typically cover issues related to the lease agreement, but parking arrangements might not be explicitly addressed. If the lease agreement specifies the number of parking spaces allocated to each tenant or addresses parking restrictions, the landlord is generally expected to adhere to those terms. However, if the lease is silent on the matter, the landlord may have more flexibility. Additionally, local ordinances or municipal codes may provide guidance on parking regulations and could be worth exploring for further information.
