Complaint: Hendricks took advantage of me for not understanding my rights. They never had me sign an agreement. In the 3 years they managed my property while I was out of the country, they stoled over 10K. They made false expenses and posted them in a fake portal account that they later deactivated so that I could not see the report anymore. I still have paper tails of the expenses that were made up. The expenses were above and beyond reasonable and I was never notified of them. In their contract, they state that any expense over 300 needs approval from owner however I have expenses in the thousands that I was never notified of until I found out from my bank that my money was drained out because I was paying mortgage and not receiving the rent money that I should for each year.
Desired Settlement: I want the money that was taken from me for false expenses and expenses that were paid for by me and charged by them. They took it upon themselves to take the money from the rent for carpet cleaning that I paid for. all of their expenses added up to over 7K in 2011, 3K in 2012, and 2k in 2013. These are expenses that are on top of the 10% management fee they charge. This is absolutely robbery. I would like a full refund for the amount that were wrongly taken from me.
As to respond the message from Hendricks Property Management that you have provided me is not correct. I do have my bank statements, it will proved the Hendricks Property Management did not deposit the rent every month. Also, the expenses document they have provided me are falsely written by themselves.
If you need any further information, please, let me know. I thank you for your time and afford. May God bless you.

Complaint: We rented from Hendricks Property Management beginning in November 2011. In November 2012, our 1-year lease expired. When we received our Extension of Residential Lease notification, the monthly rent had been changed from $900 a month to $925 a month. I met with the ******** *******, ****** ********, who handles our rental house, in December 2012. While we wanted to renew our lease for a year, we requested if there was any way our rent could be kept at $900. My request was made complicated by the fact that the owner of our house lives out of the country, and there is often a delay in receiving a reply from him. ****** ******** promised that, until we heard back from the owner of the house one way or another, our rent would be kept at $900 a month. I asked if I needed to get that in writing, and our ******* stated that all we needed was his good word, and that he would be getting back to us as soon as possible. We trusted that our rates would be kept where Hendricks Property Management said they would be. When our month's rent was withdrawn from our account, however, the amount withdrawn was $975, rather than the promised $900, the extra $50 presumably being a month-to-month rate. This practice has continued since December 2012, despite numerous phone calls, many, many e-mails, and our determined attempts to resolve this issue. We are still technically going month-to-month, because Hendricks Property Management still has not revised and reissued us a new contract. We have been charged $975 for seven months now, despite the verbal commitment that I received from the ******* for Hendricks Property Management. For months now, we have been asking for that overpayment to be refunded, but the only thing that has happened is that they continue charging us $975 per month, not updating our contract, and not resolving our request. Even if they had not promised us a rate of $900, we would not have been on the higher rate of $975 for so long if they had gotten us an answer on the contract--and a revised contract--in a timely manner. We have been trying our best to renew our rental lease since November 2012. It is unacceptable that we have been left hanging for over seven months. Communication with this company is poor--our ******* is rarely reachable by phone and e-mails and phone calls are frequently left unreturned. After seven months of trying to resolve this with Hendricks Property Management, we are resorting to filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau in the highest hopes that it will help bring resolution to our case. Thank you for your time!
Desired Settlement: Either a refund of $525 for the overdraft of $75 a month for the past seven months or an adjustment in our next month's rent to reflect the same amount.
The tenants entered into a one year lease on the subject property on December 1, 2012 for
We appreciate that Hendricks Property Management had severe difficulty in contacting the owner of our rental house. Likewise, we have experienced severe difficulty in contacting Hendricks. We are grateful that they were willing to consider and pass on our request to maintain our rent at $900 rather than increase it to $925, but please bear in mind that it was just that—a request, one which took over 6 months to resolve. In the mean time, we were charged $975 as a month-to-month rate, despite being verbally told by the ******* representing Hendricks that our rent would be maintained at $900.
Our lease renewal was never returned because our ******* told us—twice—to wait (once at our initial meeting and once at a visit to our home to review some work that a contractor had done). Both times, we were prepared to submit a signed lease, but the ******* said that he was still waiting to hear back from the owner on approval so to hang on to it.
*** ********* is correct in stating that there was confusion on the lease renewal. At any time, he could have said "no" to our renewal request (it was, after all, a request), or offered the option to later modify a signed contract as a possibility. But instead, we were kept hanging from month to month, with the monthly overcharge of $75 being the the de-facto answer we received.
The proposition that *** ********* lays out for returning the difference between the increased rent and the month-to-month rate is logical to us. Although it is less than we were hoping for, we understand his perspective and appreciate what the refund represents on his part. Having reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, we find that this resolution is satisfactory to us.
Though the overcharge is certainly a significant side effect requiring resolution, the cause of our complaint was poor communication, without which the overcharge could have been avoided. To date, we have experienced periods of up to five weeks without a response from our *******, despite multiple attempts on our part for contact during those periods. As such, we will be seeking a plan for better communication moving forward to ensure a happy and mutually beneficial relationship.
For us, "better" communication can be defined as a) at least an acknowledgement from our ******* to e-mail or phone communications within a reasonable amount of time, say 3 business days, b) a resolution or communication about the reason for a lack of resolution every 10 business days after that, without the need for persistent repeated follow-up on our part, and c) if our ******* does not respond within this time frame, a point of contact that can actually help us resolve our request instead of directing us back to our *******. Though we like our current ******* a great deal personally and appreciate his efforts on our behalf during our tenure, we feel that the level of communication outlined above may require a different representative with a more aggressive approach to communication.
We actually did file the complaint with the Better Business Bureau (6/27/13) before signing our lease renewal (6/28/13), after notifying our ******* over 24 hours earlier (6/26/13) that we we intended to do so, with no response from him. As renters, we are not confident that this situation would have progressed to this point were it not for the Better Business Bureau, and are grateful for the assistance.
We are happy and grateful to be in this little house, and look forward to a pleasant continuation of our time here.Regards,
***** *** ****** *******
