We have assigned parking spots with numbers. I have an email from the leasing office assigning our specific cars to the spot.
Thank you for your follow-up, Amy.That helps tremendously! In this situation you have an express agreement for a specific lease of a space. If that space is unavailable to you, the other party is in breach of contract terms, and permits you the right to sue for damages and for specific performance. That also means that the party from whom you are renting the spot has a duty and an obligation to keep that spot empty for you since that spot is 'yours' when you are leasing it. If that requires towing, so be it--if that requires a name tag, likewise so be it. But this is a situation where the burden is on them to ensure that the premises are available for your use whenever and how the contract is written--if you have 24/7 right to spot, that spot has to be clear that whole time. I would suggest you send them a letter stating that if they do not keep that space clear for you, you will consider them in breach and file for damages, and suggest that a name-plate or other designation showing that the spot is taken is likely the easiest and cheapest solution.Good luck.
I will do that, thank you. Are my landlords obligated to display towing information in Connecticut for private/leased parking property?
Thank you for your follow-up, Amy. You are most welcome.Landlords are not legally required to display towing information on the premises. However, if they DO tow, they must provide notice and information both to the location and personal information of the company, and the company rates. If the landlord is towing but does not have signs up, that is a violation of state law.Good luck.
