we recently put a hold on our eviction due to filing bankruptcy. The management of apartment complex started a new monthly parking pass rule that you have to get a new sticker from the leasing office every month and if you do not have your vehicle will be towed. The complex management put this notice on everyones door but ours and 1 or 2 others < I am assuming to cause us hardship of our vehicles being towed. Is this legal and if so is there any way to fight this?

Your Question:

we recently put a hold on our eviction due to filing bankruptcy. The management of apartment complex started a new monthly parking pass rule that you have to get a new sticker from the leasing office every month and if you do not have your vehicle will be towed. The complex management put this notice on everyones door but ours and 1 or 2 others < I am assuming to cause us hardship of our vehicles being towed. Is this legal and if so is there any way to fight this

Response: No, it is not legal. You can file complaint with your Attorney General's Office for this violation of your rights. In any event, since you are now aware of the rule, make sure that you comply with it.

Best wishes,

But they will not give us a parking pass because we are filing bankruptcy!

If it falls under the 100% discount Adam issued to me , then I would be more than happy to talk with you.

But they will not give us a parking pass because we are filing bankruptcy!

Response 1: That would be illegal discrimination and violation of the Bankruptcy Code Automatic Stay. The complex is basically attempting to collect the rent that was put on hold in your bankruptcy by trying to refuse the pass to you. You would have to file lawsuit against the complex in your bankruptcy proceeding for willful of the Automatic Stay and to force the complex to issue the pass to you.

If it falls under the 100% discount Adam issued to me , then I would be more than happy to talk with you.

Response 2: I have no clue what your statement is about.

Best wishes,

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.
