Customer Question
I recently got into an...
I recently got into an argument with my apartment complex new manager because she authorized a towing company to remove my vehicle from my assigned parking due to expired registration sticker. My vehicle is registered and current with the dmv, however it needs to a smog to get the new 2015 sticker. Towing company gave me a 72 hour notice for expired tags, the apt manager told me that we signed an agreement with the towing company regarding expired stickers. I asked to get a copy of those documents so I can verify my signature and if such a rule truly exist, that was 6 days ago, I have not received any documents from her.
I did receive however from mail a written notice for rent increase today. The notice is a 60 days notice for rent increase of 14.89%. We had received increase on rent befor but they were less than 10% increase. I feel as though this manager is trying to make us leave by sending this $175 increase to our monthly rent.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
