Your Question:

I have a car that was towed from her apartment assigned stall by the owner of the build could he do that

Response: Yes, the owner can do this if your lease/rental agreement requires that vehicles parked on the property must be registered in order to be parked on the private property or otherwise the vehicles would be towed at the owners' expense with no further notice. Also see California Vehicle Code Section 22658.

I am sorry that I do not have better news for you.

Best wishes,

A 5-star positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating. However, that is how I get paid for answering questions on this site.

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.

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.
