Deeded parking: ownership or exclusive rights?

Asked over 5 years ago - Chicago, IL

Is deeded parking in a condominium the sale of property and therefore ownership of land? Or is it the sale of the exclusive rights for usage? Or, yet again, can it be either, depending upon the association's preference? Thanks.

    Answered . Condo parking is either a limited common element (but the owner has the exclusive right to use it) or deeded directly. I would say most are limited common element, rather than deeded. If the parking space is deeded, you will have a separate PIN number for it. If the parking space is limited common elements, you will not have a PIN.

    Answered . the association's preference does not determine whether a parking space is owned outright (deeded), or an exclusive right (limited common element) or owned by the association and assigned to unit owners.

    the Declaration of Condominium establishes how parking is owned.

    in almost all situations, the original developer of the condominium creates the Declaration (and makes the call on the parking)

    Answered . Generally, a deeded parking space is a seperate piece of property you own.
