NSW: Q&A Disabled Parking in Apartments


Question: We purchased an Off-the-plan apartment and at the prepurchase inspection found our parking spot is the disabled parking space. Can they do this?

Answer: You may have purchased what is known as an “adaptable” unit.

It would appear you may have purchased what is known as an “adaptable” unit which is designed in such a way that it is adaptable and accessible to residents and visitors with a disability/mobility issues.

You should consult your solicitor/conveyancer to confirm the type of unit you have purchased.

The signage is indicative of your car space being disability/mobility friendly not that any disabled person may park in your space in priority to yourself.
