My car was wrongfully towed last night. I woke up to find my car gone this morning. I called to file a police report they ran my license plate and informed me it was towed. According to the towing company someone called my car in. Its private property in a gated community apartment complex. They said they had it towed because it was parked in a fire lane. The spot in question is actually my landlords parking space and I had permission to be there. There is also a sign posted that says maintenance personal and property owners only. They towing company refuses to drop the fees or return the car to me at my address. I had my manager call them and they are charging her $240 for the tow. They are extremely rude and refuse to take any fault. They said the property has a contract with the tow company but it is from DEC 2009. There was another manager here then. The current manager has been here for 2 years and knew nothing of it. I had to cancel dentist appointments and errands today. I have to pay cancellation fees for canceling my appointments last minute. My fiancée has to take off half the day to go pick up the car being that it is in his name and they refuse to release it to anyone but him. What are my rights here. And is there any legal ground to stand on to sue them. My life is upside down at this point.
