Owners and residents cannot park on the common property without the permission of the owners corporation. Visitors can only park in designated visitors parking spaces.

So for example, if an owner invites friends to visit they can’t park wherever they choose – such as in the parking spaces of other residents, or on the lawn at the front of the building. If there are insufficient visitors car spaces available, they have to park in the street.

Owners cannot give permission for people to use common property for parking, as this is a matter for the owners corporation.

With regard to rogue parking, the laws relating to the towing and clamping of cars vary from state to state. For example, in New South Wales your options are very limited: if someone parks in your parking space, or on common property, legally you can't tow them, clamp them, or block them.
