I am sorry to hear this; fortunately rent control serves to protect the tenant from most unilateral actions by the landlord. Landlords are required to have a "just cause" reason to remove or sever specified housing services from a tenancy, including parking and storage. Once parking or storage is taken away by the landlord, the tenant is entitled to a corresponding rent reduction. The tenant or landlord may file a petition with the Rent Board to determine the amount of the rent reduction. The reason for this is that the parking space is part of what is being rented, so if one space is being taken away, the tenant needs compensation.
If there is no just cause, then there would be no basis for revoking the space.
