If this is a case where you are a tenant, then you need to go back to the owner with this issue. At that point the owner would need to meet with the HOA to come up with an acceptable solution to all parties.
Do you know of anyone who has actually been penalized??
I find it hard to believe they would have a person marching around , wriitng down license plates and noting were residents are parked.
I would think the intent of the rule is so that you both don' t use up an unassigned space (2 spaces) at the same time
This may be one of those rules that makes sense on the surface, but the reality is, it can't always work, and therefore might not be enforced.
Have you spoken to other neighbors? What do they say - what does the landlord say?
The HOA is comprised of all property owners in the complex. Sometimes well meaning policies aren't thought thru correclty, and well... they need to be twicked a bit. What you say makes a lot of sense ( One Carport & One Unassigned parking sticker should impede that BOTH cars aren't parked in the unassigned area at the same time). I can also see that having to keep the carport filled FIRST turning into a grievance after about the 3rd Time. Talk to the neighbors and your landlord to see if they can't come together to work out that snippet. The dual stickers seems like a decent idea, the later seems to me as someone's nightmare in the making. Good Luck !!!
By the way, did you know that Homeownership AFFORDABILITY is NOW at its lowest point in decades. Anyone renting owes it to THEMSELVES to look into owning their own place ! Call me or Email me for Special First Time Buyer Incentives, you'll be glad you did !!!
Most Kindest Regards,
I would First recommend you get a copy of the CC&R's so you are better prepared when you call and talk with the HOA personal... The CC&R's should have been given to you when you rented the property...
I would then call and talk with the HOA about how there are 2 of you and just as you explained above. .That you do park in your assigned parking at different times. Do they actually have someone going around taking note of who parks where? That would be crazy, unless they have had a problem in the past and this is a way to keep the parking unassigned.. Hmmmm
