When i signed my rental agreement i was told i could have 2 cars and i have 2 parking spots. One of my cars has been crashed and im fighting for the case so its been parked for about 7 months. My landlord told me one day that i had to move my car because it was taking up space. Can they legally make me move my car from my parking spot?
I'm moving your question to the Landlord and Tenant category; someone there will be better able to assist you.
I recommend you approach this problem from the standpoint relationship, not rights. Consider whether storing a wrecked car on a residential property makes sense from the standpoint of the owner and other residents. Doing so does not enhance the environment.
Your lease would likely determine the technical answer, and usually landlords can make changes to parking provisions. You might propose to move car into proper storage, for a rent reduction. In other words, ask for help with the problem.
If you like your home and want to stay long-term, cooperate swiftly on this issue. Most landlords would have demanded you move the car after a few days, and there's likely lease language prohibiting nuisances that applies.
Cheerful cooperation. Is what's called for here.
Having a parking space does not necessarily mean you can park anything in that space.
If you read the rules for the apartment, you likely will find a provision that you cannot park a wrecked car on the apartment's parking lot.
Most property owners do not want their places to look like a wrecking yard.
Parking lots are for parking operable vehicles.
"Can they legally make me move my car from my parking spot?" The answer is almost certainly "yes". Either the rules provide that you cannot park a wrecked car in the parking lot or you likely are month to month, meaning the landlord can just end your tenancy by giving you proper notice.
