The e-car is not welcome everywhere – for example because of an allegedly higher risk of fire. Can it be banned from a private garage?

The general rule : Where you can park a car, a Stromer can park. But does that also apply to the underground car park of a residential building? Or are the owners allowed to forbid it – perhaps for fear of an increased risk of fire? A court has now ruled on this.

Yes, also in the underground car park The Wiesbaden district court ruled that homeowners’ associations may park electric cars (Az.: WhatsApp Logo C 2541/21).

That’s what the case under discussion was about: A community of owners had locked electric cars out of the communal garage – partly because they feared an increased risk of fire. The owner of an apartment in the building in question complained against the majority decision. And she won.

Because according to the law, owners have a right to a charging station and to the corresponding construction measures, say the judges. A majority cannot simply undermine this right by banning the parking of e-cars. After all, a charging station where no e-car is allowed to park is pointless. Concerns about an increased risk of fire do not change this clear legal situation either.

It’s different in multi-storey car parks: you can forbid entry for electric and hybrid cars – and sometimes make of them right use. Since the year 2021 there is an entry ban for cars with alternative drive in some car parks. “For fire safety reasons,” it said in one case. What is the point of this explanation?
