My car registration isn't expired, my car is brand new, my complex doesn't use parking decals. I've been living at the same complex for the past 6 years, I've always parked there cause that's the parking spot the complex gave me and they towed my car and said my car was parked on the street, which wasn't even on a street. It was clearly parked in a parking spot. Can I sue them? For taking my car from my parking spot from the apartment I pay rent ???
You should initially talk to the Landlord or Manager of your complex. Did the towing company work for them? If not, yes, contact a local area attorney close to you to investigate this matter. You may want to report it to the police as they took your car for no good reason. Best of luck.
Mr. Crosner is licensed to practice law in California and has been practicing law in California since 1978. The response herein is general legal and business analysis.. It is not intended nor construed to be "legal advice" but rather it is analysis, and different lawyers may analyze this matter differently, especially if there are additional facts not reflected in the question. Oftentimes the question does not include significant and important facts and timelines that, if known, could significantly change the reply and make it unsuitable. I am not your attorney until retained by a written retainer agreement signed by both of us. See also avvo.com terms and conditions item 9, incorporated as if it was reprinted here. In seeking an attorney on this site, beware of limiting your search to attorneys with a 10 rating, and carefully read the AVVO disclaimer regarding their rating system. There are certain factors that are given great weight which do not necessarily have any bearing on an attorney's experience, abilities, and results with certain types of cases. Accordingly, the rating numbers can be misleading. Also beware of basing your choice on the fee charged, as a low fee, depending on the skill, experience and determination of the specific attorney handling your case, could actually have an inverse relationship to the amount actually put in your pocket.
Sounds like someone in management complained. Otherwise why would they take it? Yes, you can sue them for unlawfully taking your property and any damage. They may have committed a theft.
Yes if all you represent is accurate you
May have a claim. That said unless there is damage to the car your claims are limited. Seek legal help with all your facts.

I would consult with Felipe Fulgencio. He is a Florida lawyer that has handled towing cases in the past. Good luck.
Nothing in this answer is to be interpreted as legal advice. I would need more facts to fully assess your case. Please contact me if you have any questions.
