Goofy question, I was looking at a listing on zillow for a 2 bedroom condo on Green street and it said "deeded parking space".

Do you pay property taxes on a parking space? If you do how does the city calculate the value.

Just curious.

I'm curious too.

Where on Green St? And is this street parking?

I don't actually believe it's legal if it's street parking.

17th and Green. not street parking. it almost sounds like a rented garage.

It depends. I can't tell if the said home is part of a multi-family property. If it is, then the property taxes are most likely inclusive of the parking space. If this is a single family home, the shared parking could have a separate deed. Parking is usually designated in the deed for multi-family homes and there is only 1 property tax bill.

In England, the former would be a leasehold property while the later would be a freehold property with a leasehold parking. I've never figured out the equivalents this side of the pond.

It's not just what is pictured in the back of the property in the listing? "The parking lot was recently resurfaced and the gate and operating system replaced by the association."





It would just be included in the value of the condo on which you would be taxed - nothing more.

Okay, I know where that is. There's gated off street parking there so that may be what the listing is referring to.

Yep, this is the lot I was talking about.

No, it's not right next to St Stephen Green. 1709 is the building to the left of the parking lot gate shown in the posted photo. Since it's a condo, I would guess the parking spot cost is part of HOA fees.

Usually, parking spots in the city, regardless of if they are part of an HOA or not, have a separate fee.
If it is part of an HOA, that would normally increase your HOA fee (as it should.)
If you own the space, whether under an HOA or not, you have to pay the taxes on it too.
