    Hi @stacenjay,     Do these people have any authority to say you can or cannot park your scooter there?   Perhaps you should get clarification from the local authority or factor/landlord.  It has been shown [available on a YouTube video] that a scooter may develop a fault if it is left unattended on charge but that is about as likely as an electric blanket catching fire.  No doubt you would not be leaving it on charge.   Best to get it clarified to put everyone's mind at rest.

    Best wishes.

    Best wishes.
