Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Why was it towed? Where was it towed from?
Thank you for your reply.The law said they had to send notice at the last known address of registered owner. If they prove they sent it and it was returned, which is what you said, they complied with their duty of sending notice whether or not you ever received it.
As far as towing, if the car did have a guest pass and was permitted to park at that location for the amount of time you left it there, you would need to sue the complex and the towing company for the improper towing and eventual sale of your vehicle.
The towing is the real issue, because if they did not have a legal right to tow, the eventual sale of the car is improper and they are liable to you for damages.
The notice issue would not be something you could sue about if they prove they sent the notice to the last known address and it was returned, as I said above, as they complied with sending notice and it is not their fault if it was returned.

Thank you for your reply.
That is not the fault of the towing company I am afraid. If the post office failed to deliver it, they are exempt by statutory immunity from suit.
Thank you for your reply.Yes, if you can prove that they did not send it to the address that the vehicle was last registered at, yes it would make a difference.
