Legally, the answer to that last question is no, you don't have any right to claim a parking spot as exclusively your own, if that spot is on a public highway. The only way you could reserve a space outside your property is if it has been designated as a disabled space.
Also know, how much does it cost to buy a parking spot?
Surface parking spaces cost about 5,000 to $10,000 to construct (including the value of the land they occupy). Structured parking costs between 25,000 and $50,000 per space.
Likewise, is it OK to park in front of someone's house?
The answer is yes, especially if they are causing an inconvenience or obstructing you! The law that supports this is known as the Road Transport Act 1987 (RTA 1987). If they insist on parking there then tell them that the law is on your side and show them Section 48 (1).
How do I get a disabled bay outside my house?
You can apply for a disabled parking bay outside your house provided the following conditions are met:
- The keeper of the vehicle used by the disabled person and the blue badge holder live at the application address.
- There is no off-street parking available (e.g. garage, driveway or rear access)
How can I stop my neighbor from parking in front of my house?
As long as he isn't blocking the driveway, parking on a public street is legal. You don't own the street, for better or worse. Try politely talking to the neighbor and see if he would be nice enough to park elsewhere.
