A reader is losing it. The city is reconfiguring property lines resulting in the loss of a precious commodity - a parking spot. What options does this chap have: "Okay, so we're out talking to the parking meter dude earlier after a whole half-a-block has been getting tickets for parking in our assigned spaces. Now, we're being informed that the whole half-a-block is losing one of their tandem parking spots, because the city is changing the property line on us. Parking is already tough as it is here, we can't normally even find parking spots with everyone parked in their normal spots. So my question is, what defense do we have, and are we entitled to a rent deduction if they are taking away a parking space?"
