My question involves towing laws for the State of: Minnesota
Me and my roomate live in an apartment that is normally pretty good about keeping us informed. Well last week, my buddy went outside to find that his car was missing from the lot. We called the police to report it stolen and they suggested calling the towing company that the apartment uses just in case. So we did, and found out they towed MANY peoples cars that night because the apartment plowed the parking lot.
Normally, there is a sign on our doors about week before they plow. The sign that they normally post says: "We are going to be plowing at (Said time) on (Said Date). If vehicles are not moved, then they will be towed at owner's expense."
Well, we checked our side of the building, which is three doors and we have pictures to prove it. There are NO signs. On the other side of the building there was one sign.
Now what I want to know is what are my options. My buddy and I want to break the lease and leave, is there any way we can have them credit the towing fees towards our two months rent? Or what can we do?
