What is the General Manager’s legal obligation to me? 7 Answers as of February 18, 2014

I live in apartment complex. My car was towed without anyone contacting me or asking me to move my vehicle to avoid a tow. The GM says he doesn't need to give me notice. The tow company never reported to police that he towed it. I ended up reporting my car stolen plus submitting a claim to my insurance company. What is the General Manager’s legal obligation to me? He claims he has none.

If you were illegally parked and the lot has proper notices your GM is correct.

Read your apartment lease. If it says you can be towed without notice if you park in the wrong space, then you lose.

Why was it towed? Was it in a no parking zone? I am trying to understand why you were entitled to some special consideration if you were parked where you shouldn't have been. If, however, you were properly parked, then you most definitely have a valid case.
