Your roommate is certainly free to sue. Whether she will win (and if the time and trouble of going to small claims court would make it worthwhile) is another matter that she will have to decide.

I don't think the management company can charge its legal fees for he suit back to you, as long as you are not a party to the suit against it.

I know its no fun to be towed, but I'm a bit surprised that you weren't aware of the rules. I would think that before making the substantial investment required to buy a condo one would be careful to look into the association policies, particularly with regards to parking. Of course, maybe your roommate can show that the rules aren't clear, which would bolster her case.

: I recently bought a condo. I have a roommate (verbal agreement month to month).
: Her car was towed. Towing company has 24 hour patroll rights. She wants to sue the management company for not providing adequate parking. Does she have any rights? If she loses in her suit, can the management company charge their legal fees back to me (the unit owner)?.

: Parking Rules were not provided to us when parking stickers were issued. Rules are Blue sticker parks in resident only. Red sticker parks in guest only. If there is no spaces left - you should park in the street. She parked in resident since no space was available and she was towed that night. I drove her to the towing company in another city the next morning. We both were late for work. She is angry and plans to sue the management company. I think I will end up getting charged for the Mgt. companies legal fees?

: Any advise would be appreciated.
