Hi,

I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today.

Florida has a statute that requires license plates be plainly visible from up to 100 feet away, not obscured or otherwise obstructed. That applies to vehicles driven, parked, or stopped on the roads, and it could apply to backing into a space with a vehicle that doesn't have a front license plate. Section 316.605.

However, some municipalities have their own laws on this apart from the state law. What city/county is the property in?

Also, if the condo documents prohibit backing into a space, that's different. Condo documents don't have to be based on specific statutes. They're legally binding because owners agree to them when buying a property in the community. It's possible the HOA wants to avoid back-in parking so they can easily view license plates and verify whether people are authorized to be on the premises (even though back in parking is safer).

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
