Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.

.

Do I send her notice to have the car towed, or does it become mine.

.

Yes, you would have to send her written notice that if she doesn't come get the car in a reasonable time, i.e. 10 days, then you will consider it abandoned and have it towed from the property.

.

But you don't get to keep it unless she agrees to abandon it in writing and then signs over the title to you.

.

As an aside, in addition to being an attorney, I have also been a landlord for over 26 years...

thanks
