Yes, I agree with kath on this one.
I really have to doubt he was told he MUST sleep in his car.
There's something missing to the post it seems to me.
As said, it sounds much more likely he was told, "I don't care where you sleep, in your car if you have to, but not there in the condo."
and I bet there's a reason he can't be in that condo. He can likely get another apartment, or rent a room or hotel or whatever right?
That, just sounds more believeable to me anyway.
