Derry, NH asked in Traffic Tickets, Car Accidents and Landlord - Tenant for New Hampshire

Q: Id like to know the laws about towing in new Hampshire. If they are supposed to release the vehicle if I'm there.

After work I visit my boyfriend at his apartment complex. My boyfriend owns the apartment and his HOA says nothing about not being able to have guests daily. I used the vistor parking. No stickers are required. I followed every rule. But I looked out the window and saw them trying to take my car. I ran out before they were done attaching the equipment and they told me I park there excessively so they're taking it. I parked there for a few hours every night and I leave around midnight. I was in vistor. I dont stay the night ever. They took my car and made me follow them to the towing place to release my car for 170 dollars. I was literally there for 1 hour when they decided to take my car last night. I didnt think it was right that they just take it when I have done nothing wrong so I told them I'm waiting for a police officer. I stood in the way so they could not drive away until an officer came. He says the lot is owned by the landlord so he cant do a thing. What are my legal actions?

A: A New Hampshire attorney could advise best, but you await a response for three weeks. Unfortunately, if you hired legal representation, the costs would exceed your damages, with no guaranteed outcome. You could look into small claims court in your county. Good luck
