Hi All,

 

This is my first post, and i wanted to see what you all thought. my boyfriends car has been towed, it was parked by a dropped kerb on a road with no restrictions, when we parked there was a rough spray painted line, and i mean mostly worn away bit of spray paint! we have thames water digging the roads around us, and there are bits of spray painted lines all over all the roads, we went to get the car today, and found that it had been towed on monday! no notice or anything had been sent in the post or even contacted at all! is this legal and should they have towed it without giving a ticket or anything, and can a bit of old spray paint be a valid line????? Also there are other dropped kerbs on the road with no marking at all on them, just a few hundred yards away, your help would be greatly appreciated as we will be appealing it but want to understand it all a bit better, they are charging us £360 to get our car back, which is money we can little afford as it is over a week in wages! please help!

who towed it, was it a council approved firm?

You need to find out who towed in and what they claim the reason was. Then you can investigate whether it was in compliance with whatever regulations pertain to that situation.

Take photos of whre the car was and take this to the council and demand to know on what grounds it was towed

I don't believe there is any legal requirement on them to contact the owner of the car, unless someone knows different.

 

You may have been advised that you will have to pay to get the car out and then appeal the charges subsequently, and the cost may go up each day. However that is sometimes not the case, if the council agree that the tow was done in error.

 

Definitely call the Council and find out the basis of the tow - then you can look into whether you have a case.
