I have a disability( I have a Disabled Person ID card issue

This answer was rated:

I have a disability( I have a Disabled Person ID card issue by the Motor Vehicle Commission of NJ) and I live in A semi private community in NJ. The board is trying to prevent me from parking my company vehicle( residential Plates) in the visitors parking on weekends but allowing me to park on weekdays. From an earlier dispute with a neighbor the board sent her a letter stating that I can park in the visitor parking spots, the letter doesnt make any reference whether it is weekday or weekend and they have been allowing me to park every day in the visitor parking for over two years and now are trying to prevent me from parking on weekends. There are two other vehicles in my household that are parked in the garage and in the driveway. As a diabled Person what are my rights?
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.

As as disabled person, under the Fair Housing Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act, the complex cannot treat you any differently than a regular tenant without disabilities and would have to make some reasonable accommodation for you regarding your disability as needed. A reasonable accommodation would be to allow you to park in visitor's parking instead of parking elsewhere. If the board refuses to provide you such reasonable accommodation, then you would need to consider a complaint to the local HUD office first and then if they continue to deny you the reasonable accommodation, you would have to go to court and sue for the violation of the ADA and FHA.
