I live in a development with an HOA; we have two parking spaces each. Since we have sink holes in the spaces, I have been parking in the middle of my two spaces for 2 1/2 years. The other morning my car was towed. We have no bylaws on the matter. If i ask for reimbursement and don't get it; is there additioinal recourse I can take? Thank you
A thorough answer would require reading through your HOA bylaws (I realize you say there are no bylaws on the matter, but it could be covered somewhere else in there).
Have you asked for reimbursement from the HOA? If you don't receive your reimbursement, you might have a civil claim against the HOA. However, you should consult with an attorney for a more definitive answer.
Licensed in MD, PA and DC. This is not legal advice. I am not your attorney. You should consult with an attorney licensed to practice in your jurisdiction regarding your specific circumstances.
Probably not, unless you can prove there was other actual out-of-pocket loss incurred by you (such as damage to your car as a result of the towing). Who is responsible for repair and maintenance of the parking spaces? If the HOA, you might demand in writing that they repair the spaces, or start a resident petition demanding that the HOA take action to repair the parking lots. At some point, you may be able to sue to HOA to compel them to perform required maintenance.
