Did you know that the UNIT OWNERS now have the ability to tow from their own spaces? Yes, that's right! As part of the recent rule revisions, the Board authorized owners to tow from their own parking spaces provided a form is obtained from the office and signed by staff as well as the owner.
Additionally, the owner agrees to the requirements of Canal Station Condominium Rule 5.8 including:
1. If Association staff is present when the unauthorized parking occurs, the owner must immediately inform the staff of the make, model and license number of the vehicle so that the staff can try to contact the vehicle’s owner. If staff is not present, the owner must inform the staff of the make, model and license number after the tow is completed.
2. Before towing, the owner must wait one hour after placing a notice on the vehicle stating that it is parked on private property and will be towed at its owner’s expense. This requirement does not apply to repeat offenses with the same vehicle.
3. Towing from any assigned parking space is solely the responsibility of the owner of the space, and the owner must indemnify and hold the Association harmless against any loss, claim or damage arising from the tow.
Renters and Occupants cannot tow from a space, this new option is only available to owners of a unit. If you're renting and someone is parked in your space, contact the office first, then your owner to see if the vehicle can be towed.
