I used to own a truck, then it broke down so I replaced it with a camry. In my apartment complex, you have to have your vehicle registered or get a sticker to put on the back. Although I switched cars, i kept my plaque and my name was on the back. So the car is technically registered because I kept the same information but just switched the type of car. In less than 5 hours, a towing truck towed my car in my own reserved parking spot, no warning no nothing. I then got curious and searched for other cars around me that didn't have stickers and found at least three cars with no stickers and one that wasn't even in a reserved parking spot. All were left intact. There are also no warning signs around my neighborhood. They simply just had a meeting and told us the rules. Do i have a case?
No way to tell for sure here on line; this would depend primarily on the terms of your lease. I can say that the, "but officer, everyone else is speeding too!" defense almost never works (i.e., if that is what you are relying on). YOU are the one who got "caught." you may be able to make some trouble for OTHERS; but it will not help YOU. And it may cost far more (in $$) than just rolling over (this time). One must pick their battles as they say. But if you really want to challenge the action, just retain a good local tenants lawyer.
Hope this helps. Good luck!

Possibly - depending on your rental agreement. The real issue is are you willing to spend the money on legal fees taking a shot at the issue with your LL? If the answer is NO and you are expecting lawyers to spend their money fighting your fight on principle, you might have a lonely discussion that regard.
