That sucks. I'm allowed one parking permit as well and I don't have a garage in my apartment complex. I told the leasing office that I lost my parking permit and they gave me a replacement. That was a little over a year ago, both of them work fine I'm not sure if that will fly by with your apt. complex. Hope you get things sorted out.

I pretty much have to sort this by 9/20 or my car will be towed from the complex...
Don't you have storage place right next store to you. I just rented a 14x22 for $150 with insurance. Do a google search and reserve it on line to get a decent deal.

What apartment complex is this? Also, pretty sure they can't change the lease like that but I don't know what the lease states about their ability to make changes as they see fit.

Is there any "news on your side" type agencies you can go to and have them run a story about how of a management they are?

Funny that all the regular renters get a free, outdoor parking spot included with their lease but you don't - because you pay extra for a garage!

If they really changed the policy on you during the term of the lease then you can definitely break the contract through a dispute in small claims court - and maybe even come out ahead with some extra court-ordered financial award.

Don't listen to the guy above who says that taking them to court will cost more than its worth. Small claims court in Texas is cheap, easy and really favoring of the plaintiff in cases like this.

This was my sentiments on it as well... I am going to talk to management and if it doesn't go my way then I think I will move all my stuff to a storage unit for the time being... and then lawyer up to get out of the lease with no penalty. I will just go live elsewhere if that is possible.

I am lucky. Both my bike and car fit in my garage no problem. The Apartment I had when I lived in Huntsville (AL) was though. Very limited parking, no garages...When I moved in only 1/3 of the lot was full at any given time. As the apartments filled up.. that changed of course.A lot of the turds who lived around me had non-leased semi-permanent visitors, or multiple cars and took ALL the parking. I had to park on the street a few nights. I complained as only 1 out of 4 cars had permits. Let’s just say after a tow fest…parking was easy cheesy.

Back to your problem… I think that is total bull !! They should a lot you at least one parking space. But I guess they can do whatever they want. How much is the garage a month? Mine is the same cost as a storage unit ( only much more convenient).

Just read this.. maybe it would be cheaper to just break the lease rather than hire a lawyer... Of course winning in court would be much more satisfying!!!!

It isn't really the cost... and a broken lease looks bad on a credit app if I want to live somewhere else.

Your lease will say they have the right to make adjustments as needed depending upon the need for parking in the complex. It's in almost all TA contracts. However, the same contracts say that any vehicle registered to you with a registration, and tags is considered a parkable vehicle in the complex. All the complex's do it re word a basic contract they all use .

go the I didn't agree to this when I moved in. You simply don't have the ability to park all of your cars at the complex. It's not really fair, ask them what they expect you to do. ( even if you already have a plan, see what they tell you ) . If they come up with some idiotic excuse, simply let them know that due to the changes in the policy, this place really isn't going to suite your needs. She will say, Im sorry, you are more than welcome to leave, but you will need to pay the " months owed ", or a portion thereof.

Then say, okay I have no problem working something out, however; would you mind please giving me something in writing that says I am unable to have a parking space for my vehicle? She will say no ( because she can't really give that to you ), and you will ask for the management company's name ( unless you already know it ) . Google them, and give them a call, it's a different company all together than who actually manages the up front of the complex. Explain the issue to them, and they 9 times out of 10 will get it worked out for you right away.

Good luck!

What kind of car do you drive that you can't park both it and your bike in a 1 car garage? I mean, sure, it'll make getting the bike out a PITA, but it's better than the alternative.

DO IT

It worked for me, and I didn't spend any money except for postage and the paper everything was printed on.

Gather everything including the lease and all other paperwork they sent you. Do not let them verbally communicate with you about it. Get everything in the form of a letter which they probably already are doing. Easy to follow steps online to fill out the all the needed paperwork. Then its just a matter of locating the owner (through tax records) and mailing the paperwork to them. They may settle out of court if not the next step is filing at the courthouse, and its not very expensive.



"Small claims court in Texas is cheap, easy and really favoring of the plaintiff in cases like this" exactly and the property owner knows this.

small claims is easy. It only cost about $50, you just have to follow the process and send a demand letter first.

You can send the demand letter today. That will at least show them you are serious.

I won in small claims court against a real lawer. I'm just a Geologist.

Its kind of a fun process, and I learned a lot doing it. It was REALLY nice dicking down (keeping it classy) the office manager at my old complex. She thought she could just do whatever the she wanted to without any repercussion. Hand delivering the paperwork, and telling her I have already mailed out the same paperwork to the property owner and management company was awesome. The look on her face was priceless. The decent check I received only made it better.

I would start as soon as possible and there are a few sites specific to Texas that makes it really simple. If you do proceed pm me if you have any questions.
