My own apartment towed my car... Can I take legal action?
I have a legal question, lots of smart people here so please advise if you can. Here are the facts:
1) I moved into Apartments in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in July 2017 (I'm here for training) and received a parking permit. Please note these apartments cater to students (I am not a student).
2) My car was towed in September 2017 for "expired" decal.
3) After talking to my apartments, I found out my apartments updated the decal for the new School Year in August 2017.
4) I was never contacted to get an updated decal or told prior that my permit would expire. The apartment confirmed that they have my updated email and phone number, and their systems SHOWS that their attempt to email me resulted in a system failure.. so it shows that I was never emailed.
5) Their claim is that they also have a website, which includes a "resident portal", where I am suppose to also check for messages. They told me it was my responsibility to check their website for messages.
6) I do not use their website, I pay monthly in the office. They also historically been able to contact me, via phone. They also post notes on my door about events, and stick flyers in my car about bonus referrals....but they never contacted me about updating my decal. They refuse to take any accountability or to offer me anything.
So I paid to get my car from the tow...Also spent the night before calling the cops, and using uber before realizing my own apartment towed my car. There are no flyers or anything about updating decals posted around the apartment. What can I do, do I have a legal case against them? I just think they are so wrong to do this to people... What do you guys think? Sorry for long post.
