Another parking thread! Idiot neighbours!

We live in apartment (which we own) and each apartment in the block has their own allotted space. There are also several visitor bays too. As with many families in the block, we have 2 cars so I park in our bay (which is underneath the building) and DH parks in a VP bay outside.

2 issues that are bugging me which basically boils down to the same thing - people NOT parking in their alloted bays, leaving them empty and taking up a bloody VP bay!

AIBU to be pissed off when they leave their bays empty and park in a VP/vacant apartments bay (the space is underneath rather than outside) meaning people who use the VP bays cant park anywhere?!

Maybe you should all park your second cars on the street and leave the visitor bays for visitors? Maybe they are holding a visitor bay for guests as they all get taken by second cars of residents?

Str1p3yl3af Thu 04-Jun-15 14:52:53

But you use a visitors bay?

Maybe they are pissed off that you seen to have designated one of the VP bay's as your own?

Should your husband use the visitors bay? I thought they were for visitors not people who are living there?

First one home will be parking in vp bay, 2nd one home in their own spot.
They probably do that cause you're taking up a vp spot!
Op as parking threads go this is a complete disappointment non started.

As I stated... they leave their own empty and park in the VP bay, There's only him. Several other residents with second cars use VP bays (it's a private complex) and are also suffering from being unable tp park because people with 1 car are taking up VP bays and leaving their own empty. It just boggles me why?

cjt110 Thu 04-Jun-15 14:59:21

And no, we havent designated a VP bay as our own and are happy to park in any of the available bays, as are our other neighbours.

Str1p3yl3af Thu 04-Jun-15 14:59:32

Ask them?

cjt110 Thu 04-Jun-15 15:01:42

str1p3yl3af I would except he doesn't seem the most approachable. He and his friends seem to just do what they want one example was when I caught his friend peeing against the fence in the carpark and dont really care what anyone else wants

You are as bad then

visitor bays are NOT for 2nd cars!

AnyoneForTennis Thu 04-Jun-15 15:04:22

So where do his friends park?

cjt110 Thu 04-Jun-15 15:05:23

tennis in front of the fence with no parking bays.... Where is says "DO NOT PARK"

Irishlassie Thu 04-Jun-15 15:05:28

I don't see what the problem is , maybe they are keeping their allocated spot free for their visitors if the residents are using all the vp spots with their second cars.

cjt110 Thu 04-Jun-15 15:07:08

Irish see post above about where his friends park^

AnyoneForTennis Thu 04-Jun-15 15:08:59

Well if your DH didnt park on the gp bays then they could park in them as intended?

cjt110 Thu 04-Jun-15 15:10:05

Tennis they park there regardless of whether they are empty or not.

cjt110 Thu 04-Jun-15 15:10:32

nevermind, forget it. thanks anyway

The5DayChicken Thu 04-Jun-15 15:13:16

Are we talking 'person' rather than 'people' here? A single resident whose friend pisses up fences is using a VP space rather than his own allocated space?

knittingdad Thu 04-Jun-15 15:14:17

Can you not park in the empty numbered bay then?

cjt110 Thu 04-Jun-15 15:15:35

Thats one neighbour The5Day

Plus another neighbour who parks in other allocated bays when the apartments are empty, leaving her own empty and has on previous occassions had more than 3 cars in the complex (between her, her husband, his business I think there were 6 cars using empty allocated bays, VP bays and not their own).

cjt110 Thu 04-Jun-15 15:17:15

knittingdad I am tempted to, but as I've said above, he doesnt seem the approachable kind and I'd rather not fight that battle lol.

According to our concierge, he has been to prison a few times for drug offences explains the stench that always seems to be in the lift after he and his friends have been in it

The5DayChicken Thu 04-Jun-15 15:19:46

People using other people's allocated spaces (without permission), I can understand you being annoyed about. But as your DH parks your second car in the VP spaces, I don't think you really get to be annoyed that other neighbours park their cars there too. The rule doesn't change because you choose to keep a second car and they don't...residents are either allowed to use VP spaces or they're not.

We had this in the flats we lived in. Neighbours with two cars always parking first car in visitor bay and second car in own space so never any spaces for visitors. My friends, my parents - anyone visiting could never bloody park. There was clamping in place as well so it was impossible.

Constant arguing. Eventually I moved. It is worse now I know as I still have friends in the block.
