My question involves personal property located in the State of: Texas
Our car was towed from an apartment complex where we hold a lease because the displayed registration was out of date. We had renewed the registration online but had not had the chance to actually put it on the car..... filed in small claims court for illegal towing and since the defendant didn't even show up the judge decided in our favor - now they are appealing the $254 judgement. Our contention was, and is, that our lease says the registration must be current and the vehicle operable (which it was) and does not stipulate that the registration must be displayed, only that it must be legal and current. Worried we may loose appeal since they've hired an attorney and am afraid we might get charged for their attorney fees if we lose on appeal..... are we wrong to feel they towed illegally and what can we expect in the way of fees if we lose.
