In Reply to: Expired Stickers May result in towing posted by Chandra on March 19, 1998 at 10:41:47:
I live in dallas and have 4 yrs experience with apt leasing. You probably
signed a Texas Apartment Association lease. Under that lease, a manager
can tow disabled cars, cars with license and inspection sticker that have
expired. They don't need to give you any warning or notice and your
stuck with all fees. Check your lease, it's all their in writing.
( I personally HATE signing those leases..they protect the landlord
like you wouldn't believe!!!
: I've just recently moved to this property (that is located in Garland, TX) and I'm
: not quite sure why this happened without any notice. Tuedsay night, early evening I happen to be
: leaving my apartment to get into my car when I see this tow truck hooked up to my car. I asked
: the guy why are you towing my car, he said that he was told my the landlord to tow it because of
: an expired sticker. I was not given any information that this was going to happen, and I thought that
: they would tow a vehicle only if a car has been sitting for several days, or even serveral months.
: My question is can they do this, give you no warning, how is it their business if the car is driven
: everyday if your stickers are expired!!! What legal leg do I have to stand on?? Please help as soon
: as possible.
