    Default Car Towed - Landlord Gave Me Expired Parking Permit

    My question involves towing laws for the State of: Ohio

    I moved into an apartment yesterday, and my car was towed by a private outfit from the apartment complex parking lot last night. The apartment is a sublet and the towing firm claims that the parking permit the sublessor gave me yesterday is expired. I found the car missing this morning when I went out to drive it to the airport. At first, I thought it was stolen and called the police. I ended up missing my flight to a work meeting this morning in Boston and have a non-refundable hotel there for tonight that I won't be able to use. Please advise. Thanks.

    By "landlord," I assume you mean the person from whom you're subletting, not the owner of the apartment complex. What do the signs around the parking complex say about parking? Is an expiration date printed on the permit?

    I received the parking permit from the person that I'm subletting from, not the owner of the apt complex. I just received an e-m from her stating that she'd come over tonight to reimburse my towing fee. I'd still like to know my options in case she doesn't follow through. Also, I'm talking to the the hotel in Boston and am optimistic that I may not be charged as a no show for tonight.

    Thanks.
