How many handicap parking spaces does an apartment complex have to provide in San Antonio, TX?

There is one handicap spot in front of my building however, there are 2 different residents in my building that are disabled. Me being one of them. Unfortunately, for me, the other resident isn't as kind about sharing it with me as I am with him. He acts as though it is HIS and his only space. Finding a parking place even remotely close to my apartment can be quite challenging a good bit of the time. Before I complain to the leasing office I was hoping to know my rights. Does the complex have to give us both a disabled parking spot so that we BOTH can have easier access to our apartment?

Handicapped parking spaces are not designated by how many handicapped people live in the building. They have to have x # per x # of spaces. As landlord noted if you live in a small complex the one space may be legal.
