Complaint: Unacceptable Move In Conditions and Repairs We moved into this rental Property on 12/11/2015 from out of State and paying a very large deposit out of good faith without seeing the property.The Cleaniness conditions as well as other repairs that need to be done still.When we arrived on 12/11/2015 there was a pile of someones elses dog manure in the backyard.On 12/16/2015 we hand delivered a Detailed letter in regards to the issues and repairs that need to be followed up on.Since then I have tried to speak to ***** ******* to work out getting these repairs etc. done,but all she can do is cut me off in the middle of me trying to explain to her the repairs and issues.We received a call from the company on 12/16/2015 @ 6:15pm apologizing for the mess that we encountered on moving in,But yet have seen anybody at my door to resolve these issues and concerns.Have photos of the un clean conditions and repairs that need to be completed. to help my wife clean up the house.In the master bedroom there was broken curtain rods on the window along with ripped dirty torn purple curtains.So we had the dry wall reapired and installed vertical blinds and had the windows cleaned inside and out.I have done business with quite a bit of Propert Mnagement over the Years and these is the Worse that we have ever done Business with...Its Just Bad Business!!
Desired Settlement: Refund for the Cleaning etc.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2016/01/15) */ Contact Name and Title: *****/Property Manager Contact Phone: XXX-XXX-XXXX Contact Email: *****@realtyfresno.com We regret that the condition of the house was not up to ours or the tenant's standards when they took possession. Sometimes our vendors make mistakes or miss items they were supposed to address. We feel that all of their complaints were valid, and we dispatched every item on their repair list the same day we received it, December 17th. We would be happy to provide documentation of that if desired. Additional repairs were requested on January 11th, we tried to get additional details as to the problem but got no response from tenants. We finally dispatched a vendor on the 13th to check on it and complete any repairs needed, he reports that tenants have not returned his calls to schedule an appointment. Tenants competed some repairs without our permission, which they acknowledge, and have asked for reimbursement. We have repeatedly asked for copies of receipts. As of this writing we still haven't received them. Our policy is to reimburse tenants for reasonable expenses they incur in situations like these. Missing blinds and lack of cleanliness are certainly reasonable requests. In some cases we have to get the owner's approval for reimbursement, but these owners are reasonable and are likely to agree with our recommendations. We believe these tenants will be an asset to the property, and we look forward to a long and beneficial relationship with them. We're committed to addressing all their needs in a timely manner. But, we can't reimburse costs when we don't know what they are. I'm confident we will be able to complete their repairs and work out fair compensation to them as needed.

Complaint: I was charged a substantial amount of money when I moved out of my old residence and sent to collections 2 days later. I vacated my old premises on August 1st 2014. The rental company that manages the property charged me for rent that was payed, stating that I owed for windows that were broken but I had payed for previously. When I asked for a printout for the payments I made on the broken windows they told me that I had not payed for them and started taking my rent checks a putting them towards the windows even though they were payed for. I then started receiving late fees because they took the rent and applied it toward s the windows. After vacating the premises on August 1st 2014 I received a statement dated august 27 th with charges stating that I owed $1403.00 after my $800.00 deposit was kept, I was also charged for an extra week of 8/01/2014-8/08/2014 even though I put in a 30 day notice on 7/03/2014 and vacated on 8/01/2014 the charges for that was $240.00. The house was in bad condition when I moved in and I have pictures from the move in and move out date. Nothing was in good condition upon me moving in. The carpet did need to be cleaned when I moved out and some cleaning to the house as well. This company is trying to rip me off and ruin my credit they sent me to collections on the same day they printed out the statement. I had NO time to respond or even see the charges before I was sent to collections , please help. Thank you ***** **********
Desired Settlement: I am seeking honest charges, after my move out my deposit should of more then covered any damages and no rent was due.
Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/09/25) */ The tenant submitted 30 day notice on 7/2/14. She did not respond to phone messages left for her asking when she would be turning in keys. She never contacted us upon move out, and never turned in keys. We finally took possession of the property on August 8th. Tenant is legally responsible for rent until keys are returned. Tenant was part of the subsidized housing, or section 8 program, which means the house was subject to inspections every 6 to 8 months by HUD inspectors. Any issues that may have been present when tenant moved in were addressed in a timely manner. Paragraph 11, page 2 of the rental agreement dated 4/15/13 states that any damages caused by tenant will be charged to tenant. Tenant did NOT make additional payments for the windows, therefore tenant's rent payments were applied to the damages, as allowed by California law. Tenant received monthly statements showing the balance owing, and was mailed an itemized statement showing all charges, within 21 days of our taking possession of the property. Tenant did NOT provide us with a forwarding address, so the statement was mailed to last known address. Since tenant did not return our phone calls, or provide us with a forwarding address, we had no choice but to start collection action. Tenant certainly has the right to question the charges issued, and we will be happy to review them and provide documentation as needed. We will also be happy to consider a negotiated payoff amount that could end up being less than the amount submitted to collection. Tenant has never contacted us or the collection agency to discuss settling this issue. We would be happy to discuss it with tenant. Final Business Response /* (4000, 7, 2014/09/26) */ See Document
