Customer Question
My HOmeowner's Association towed...

My HOmeowner's Association towed my car. The "rules" state that I am to be given 5 days notice. Instead I got 4 hours. What can I do about this?

Lawyer's Assistant: Where is the property located?

Warminster PA

Lawyer's Assistant: Has any paperwork been filed?

The police were called to the towing company. Other than that, I didn't know where to turn.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

For now...that's my major issue.

The hoa must arrange for vehicle to be returned and all fees and expenses reimbursed by the hoa as it violated its own rules and failed to provide notice. If hoa refuses you can proceed by small claims court, which avoids incurring legal fees, but hoa should comply to avoid the risk and costs.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
