This will depend on timing; can you tell me, how long ago did you bring your car to be repaired? How many days or weeks ago?
So this begs the question? You brought the car into years ago; why has it taking you so long to resolve this?
Thank you. Tell me this, how long ago did this new company take over the property? How many weeks or months ago?
Sorry, you said:
brought my car to a service facility, that facility moved, and eventually the owner walked away form his business, and his building lease. My car was on of 8 vehicles that
How long ago did that happen?
Thank you. So to clarify it took you over a year to contact the new owner to retrieve your car?
Thank you. I'm going to opt out and allow other experts to weigh in on this question. Please do not respond as that would only increase the amount of time for the new expert to take an answer your question.
Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
I am a DIFFERENT CONTRIBUTOR as your previous contributor had to leave.When someone who has rented a business and abandons that business lease and leaves property on the premises, the landlord has a right to confiscate the property. If the owner of the property claims that property the landlord must release the property but may charge storage fees. However, the person who abandoned your car and business would be liable to you for the costs of the storage incurred and for letting the landlord confiscate your car and abandoning it without notice.
It is not the landlord's fault the business owner abandoned the car and it was not the landlord's duty to notify the owners of the cars legally. It was the business owner's duty to notify the customers he had a contract with. So, your suit here is against the business owner who walked away and abandoned your car without giving you notice and to get your car you have to pay the landlord for storage and then sue the business owner for reimbursement.
