Thinking about renting an apartment and want to know whether the apartment complex has visitor parking?

This is a great question, and one that many forget to ask.

Visitor Parking – Do All Apartment Complexes Offer It?

No, not all apartment complexes offer visitor parking. However, if they do offer it, then there may be a dedicated zone or a few spots allocated to visitor parking with time limits.

If there is no dedicated zone, are there enough spaces?

Is There a Fee for Visitor Parking?

Some apartment complexes charge a small fee for visitor parking. In some instances, you may have to purchase a pass for a specific timeframe to park in the visitor parking area. It depends on where you live and how much demand there is for parking in your area.

Is Visitor Parking a Requirement?

Technically, there is not really a requirement for apartment complexes to offer visitor parking since it is private property. However, landlords/managers know that their residents can occasionally have guests’, and all things being equal, good managers want to ensure a good resident experience.

If they can offer guest parking, they would. See how much parking is enough?

Why Wouldn’t an Apartment Offer Visitor Parking?

Apartment complexes don’t offer this amenity when parking is already at a premium for residents in city or urban areas. If the complex is a little further away from the urban center city core and space is not an issue, then you are likely to find visitor parking spots.

Can A Visitor Park in a Resident’s Parking Spot?

No, a visitor cannot park in a resident’s spot. If you have any doubts, check with your landlord/manager.

Can You Park on the Street?

Again, this depends on the area of the apartment complex. If it is in a busy, urban area, street parking may also be hard to come by or quite a walk from the complex. In other areas, street parking may be the easiest option.

If you are renting an apartment and intend to have visitors, it may be worth checking to see if the apartment complex has visitor parking, or where your visitors should park.
