I live in Texas, that's the first problem . I recently moved into an apartment complex, and they recently implemented tenant parking rules. You have to have a "sticker" on your car provided by the office. We have no marked stalls. In order to obtain this sticker, you have to provide proof of title or insurance "in your name." I use my mom's car (as my own), and the title is in her name. I was told the vehicle has to be in my name or it will be towed. I have a few questions about this.
1) Is it legal for them to keep a copy of my title and/or insurance on file (very uncomfortable with this)?
2) None of the stalls are marked, except for 2 in front of the office that say "future tenant". Can they tow from unmarked parking stalls, etc.?
3) How do visitors know where they can park if the stalls are not marked?
4) I'm sure a lot of people drive cars that are owned by different people -- can they dictate my parking situation just because the car belongs to someone else?
I have a young child and need to park close to my unit in order to carry the child and groceries, etc. There is very limited street parking.
The letter says if you do not have a "blue sticker" in your window, the parking lot will be monitored by a tow company and cars will be towed.
Thanks for your help.
