Can I use a car cover when parked on private land?

I want to know if I can use a car cover over my car. It is parked in my own space in a secure car park at my flats, the space is registered to me. I need to protect my car from vandalism, dust from nearby building site and to hide contents from view but I have to have a permit in the windscreen. However, as it’s on private land am I allowed to cover it?

This is difficult for us to say as it depends on how the property's parking is managed. We would get in touch with the property management company and see what their view is. It's unlikely to be an issue unless you regularly have parking wardens visit your area, but it's better to be safe.
