Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply,but rest assured, I am working on your question.
If this is your private parking lot, then there is nothing illegal or improper about you charging a lot fee to cover maintenance, clean up, trash removal, etc.
I would suggest you contact the local business licensing office to see if they require any type of license to operate a pay lot though.. And I would also check with your insurer to make sure that you were adequately covered if you let non-customers use your lot..
If someone is parking on your lot that they are paying to park in, gets out of their car, steps in a rut in your lot, breaks their ankle, and then sues you for their injuries..
I would assume that your insurance would already cover if someone hit your cars..
