I have lived in a retirement flat for 18 years, when I came

Customer Question

I have lived in a retirement flat for 18 years, when I came I was still driving. Now paraplegic but still active I own a WAV but no longer drive. I have a local driver but am not allowed to park on site as I don't drive. The vehicle has been driven, & kept, by my former son-in-law. He and his second wife have a large joint family, live a*****away, and have a premature 3 week old special care baby. It will be months , if ever before he can drive me. My hobby, wheelchair dance, is every school day evening*****away. I need this hobby & my vehicle on-site for this and other activities. The manager has promised reserved spaces to two potential new residents - I feel this is discrimination.
The lease says there are no reserved spaces but there always have been , with flat numbers above the spaces allocated. There are more flats than spaces

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?
