So my apartment complex had assigned parking. However they never enforced the rules and one day they decided to back in November of 2017. They gave a text notification about illegal parking for the vehicles to be moved by 10:30 or they would be towed. I was borrowing my boyfriends vehicle and had it parked in one of the illegal spaces because someone was in mine. So after that text I moved it to the road for two hours when I noticed my spot was free. I moved it into my parking spot after. At about 10:45 they sent another text asking if it is my vehicle and I said yes right away and explained I was borrowing my boyfriends. About two hours later I got a text saying they towed it anyways because of the problem with illegal parking. When I called about it they just told me that it was parked illegally first and there was nothing they could do about it because they had to waste the day looking at these cars and I was not paying for that car even though it was in the spot I was paying for. I didn't want to sue them at first because I was moving out in a few months, however now that I'm moved out I want my money back. Is it too late to go to court about this situation?
I wouldn't think there is anything wrong with bringing suit now. I doubt there is any timeline that would be up in less than a year.
