Q. California Code which requires seller of residential property to disclose to buyer that the property is within an HOA.

Q. Does a tow company have a legal obligation to use due diligence To avoid an illegal tow? Despite signed consent.

An attorney would also need to do a little review and research of the consent signed. As you can see by my response this is not a simple issue. If you want to pay an attorney for a consultations to see what your rights are you can certainly do that. Not many such cases are brought to court because paying an attorney is sometimes more than paying the tow fees so not many people are willing to do that. ... Read More
