Additional Notes

Complaint: I followed all move-out procedures after I vacated the property I was renting and the property management company took my entire deposit and charged me $329 additional. I was charged twice for the carpet and charged for painting, which I was told not to do and did not.

Desired Settlement: I want my deposit back and want my balance remaining eliminated.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 6, 2014/03/27) */ We will be sending our response via email today to ******** Please let me know if you have any questions after reviewing the evidence. thank you, **** ******* owner Final Business Response /* (1000, 8, 2014/03/31) */ To Whom it May Concern: Please find our evidence to refute this complaint against our company. In particular, the photo evidence should explain why ******* **** owes the landlord a balance due for damages she made to the apartment she recently moved out of. I'm sure you will agree we acted in a professional manner to resolve the teants security deposit dispute based on the evidence submitted. I am including her yelp review of our company including absolute lies. She claims she had a $1,775.00 deposit when infact, she only had a $1,1750.00 deposit. I am also including her Yelp review of her previous landlord in California. This should show you a pattern. When she does not get her way she uses bullying tactics to damage the reputation of whomever she is batteling. ** ***** has over a dozen similar Yelp review of other companies aswell. Based on the evidence provided, I am hopeful you will continue to rate my company as A+. Please contact our office is a further explaination is required. Thank you, **** ******-President ***SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS REDACTED BY BBB***

Additional Notes

Complaint: Failure to refund security/pet deposit within 14 days according to WA state law.

Desired Settlement: Seeking the refund of the security/pet deposit.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1010, 5, 2013/10/22) */ Hello ******, thank you for your patience as I was out of town last week at a convention when you contacted our office with regard to your security deposit settlement. I wanted to explain and clarify that although in most cases we perform the security deposit disposition for our residents upon move-out, we were not able to do so in your case. The property owner cancelled our management agreement effective September 30, 2013 because as you know she wanted to expedite getting the condo on the sales market. Once we receive notice from an owner to close down services we have to honor this request by law. Effective October 1, 2013 the property owner was effectively the new property manager for your condo and took possession of the security deposit for the purpose of performing the settlement with you directly. As a courtesy, we explained to the owner that she must do so in writing within the required 14 day period. Because the owner lives out of town, I believe she was going to have her local real estate broker do this on her behalf but I cannot confirm this. Because your security deposit was held in trust, by state law we are required to send this deposit to the owner directly for the final settlement to you. Unfortunately, we have no control over what the owner does with the security deposit once we close down the property. I would suggest you contact the property owner directly to discuss your disputed security deposit settlement and resolve this directly. I wish you the best of luck in your future. thank you, **** ******* - President **** ******* & Associates - CRMC(r) (Certified Residential Management Company) **** ******** *** ** ***** Seattle, WA 98109 XXX-XXX-XXXX **** Final Consumer Response /* (2000, 8, 2013/10/23) */ (The consumer indicated he/she ACCEPTED the response from the business.)
