Requirements for Apartment Towing
As the property owner, there are a few requirements before you can have a vehicle towed off your property that doesn’t belong there before you can legally have the vehicle towed.
First, the towing company must have a written agreement with the property owner, and it must be on file with the DPS. Also, the towing company must have a permit with the DPS.
Second, before you can have an unwanted vehicle towed, there must be visible signage. The signage must state.
1) This is private property, and the parking is reserved for tenants only.
2) Where the vehicle owner can retrieve their vehicle.
3) The cost to retrieve the violator’s vehicle (towing fee and storage fees)
4) What means of payment are accepted.
We know this sounds like a lot to have on a sign, but it is what DPS requires. Doing what they require protects the property owner and the towing company.
Third, do your research on the towing company that you are going to allow to help you with taking back your space. Be sure they have a permit from the DPS. Therefore, you will know the company that will be engaging in non-consensual tow maintains safety standards. And Any company wishing to engage in non-consensual towing from private property will also carry a minimum amount of insurance coverage.
