Customer Question

We live in a townhouse complex with parking beside and in front of us that we are not allowed to use. There is an easement that runs in front of our townhouse and the parking. The first set of houses that were built here are a different Strata to us and they claim that these parking stalls belong to them. My question is, does an easement go from curb to curb and if it does do our strata owners have the right to park in these spots

You need to review the title history of the property in question, including easements, to find out exactly what easements are in force, what the stated purpose of the easements are, and where on the property they exist. This information should be available (for a fee) at the Land Registry Office in your area. There are title search services online and by phone you can pay to retrieve this information for you as well.

Good luck to you.
