Is your retirement flat rented by you from a landlord or are you a leaseholder? What does your lease say about parking? Is this a self-imposed rule by the management companythat you are not allowed to park on site as you don’t drive?
I need as much detail as possible about the allocation of parking please. Is it first-come first-served although the management company have decided that they will of their own volition allocate the odd space here and there?
