Complaint: I am currently a tenant, in a house just recently being managed by Red Wagon, I have been staying on the property for over a year now. The owner, switched to Red Wagon just as I was renewing my lease agreement Nov 2014. On 9 Jan 2015, someone broke into the property, breaking the lock to the front door and stole everything of value, along with destroying everything in their path in the house. After notifying the police I called Red Wagon Property Management, I spoke to one of their agents that told me he would have the ******** ******* ********** ******* and the repairs department call me back ASAP. Obviously the message I passed along about the break-in and the two broken doors was not important because I did not hear back from them until I called again two days later 12 Jan 15. On that date I spoke to *** *******, I told him about the break-in and about the doors being broken I also shared my concern with him letting him know that I called two days prior and I never heard back. After I told him everything that happened he said, and I quote "Well, the proper procedure for placing a work order for the broken doors is to submit a work order online through red wagon properties" he also proceeded to say that they only work Mon through Friday that's why I didn't get a call back. I told him that in emergency situations there has to be some kind of exception to submitting a work order online being that my computer was stolen and that I couldn't believe he just said that. After speaking more about the broken doors he told me he would send someone out to fix the locks and that I did not need to be there for it. I then told *** ******, I did not feel safe and I wanted to explore my options on getting out of the lease, *** ******* said "This is kind of one of those life happens events. I know the lease, and this does not excuse you from your lease". In reference to the broken doors, they are still broken and Red Wagon refuses to fix them, even though that kind of repair falls under home owners insurance.
Desired Settlement: 1. Fix the broken doors that cost nothing to the property management company or the owner due to the fact that it falls under home owners insurance. Unless the owner cares nothing about his home! Damage to the property does not fall under renters insurance because its not mine, and I will not pay out of my own pocket for something that was not my fault! 2. Take classes on customer service, I have a perfect rental history and should be treated as such. Nonetheless I serve for you in the USAF!
We at Red Wagon are extremely sympathetic to the tenant who has fallen victim to a crime in which her space has been violated and has been stolen from. We had an office space broken into once and we can empathize with how it feels. I also understand exactly how it feels when you later find out that, as the tenant, you are held responsible for the damages from the crime of which you were the victim. There is no way to deliver that information in a way that is palatable or that even comes close to feeling right or justified.

Complaint: 2nd complaint: I have been out of my home since Jan 11th due to a leak. I came home on Sunday night to find water all over the house. Every bedroom (3), closets, living room, bathrooms, and dinning/kitchen had water. San Antonio water department had left a notice notifing of a leak on the residence side. A pipe in the middle bathroom ruptured and caused the house to flood. Carpets, rugs and flooring were soaked. Water was shut off by SAWS. I have been in contact with realty company via email, I have called the office on hue near but they always say that the agent is not in. I have tried calling at different times of the day and still haven't been able to speak with her. Every conversation is via email so she can have documentation. It's been two weeks and all that has been done is vacuumed water and blowers and humidifiers placed in the home. The blowers have been running non- stop. A plumber did come on Thursday 22nd to fix the plumbing issue. A leak still remains and Red Wagon has been notified. A contractor came to assess the damage and submit a quote to the realty company. The only response I get from Red Wagon is " we are waiting for approval from the owners". Meanwhile I'm going on week 3 of not being able to reside in the home due to the noise of the blowers and humidifiers running, the smell of mold, and water on the floor. My son has already moved to his fathers due to the fact that he couldn't breathe in the home, the constant moving from place to place and having to live out of a suit case. Funds are not available for a hotel for however long they need so we have no choice but to keep staying at other peoples homes. I have my 11 year old daughter to take care of and it's a hassle having to drive back and forth. I have aired out the house to get the smell out but I don't think the realty company have given this issue the attention it needs that it's becoming a greater issue now. Water is now coming back up into the living room and bathroom again that I'm having to move and place my possessions into the garage from further damage. I really don't think it's fair that I have to pay for something that I can reside in because of the lack of attention to a very serious matter. I feel this home is slowly attaining for damage then it needs to if the issue would of been handle in a timely manner. As I've said this is the start of week 3 and I still can't reside at the home.
Desired Settlement: Fix the issues at hand right away or allow me to find residence else where, where I have a home of my own to come home too without having to worry where we are going to stay at tomorrow.
Business Response: This is actually a re-posting of the first complaint by the tenant. All issues regarding repairs were addressed in a timely manner. We have not charged the tenant for rent during any of the time the tenant has been unable to reside in the property. While we were drying the home out it was discovered that there was a second leak in the home causing yet more damage and more inconvenience to the tenant. The home owner did in fact turn this into their insurance and they began taking over parts of the process in conjunction with our company. This complaint was the first time the request was made by the tenant to be released from her lease. Due to the extent of the damage and the amount of work the home will need for restoration we find that to be a perfectly acceptable solution. We are granting the termination of the lease with not penalty to the tenant.

Complaint: We moved out of the property located at **** ******** Converse, TX 78109 on June 17th, 2013. I received an email after 30 days of moving out regarding the return of my security deposit and this is my response to the deductions. We thoroughly cleaned the rental at **** ******** Converse, TX 78109 before vacating and, in fact, left it cleaner than when we moved in. There were no damages to the property beyond normal wear and tear. We were expecting to get our full deposit back. We were surprised to see the following deductions: 1. HVAC check (dirty filter) – We changed our filter out monthly as demanded in our lease. Our air conditioner was running consistently and filters do become dirty because of that. Also, noted in our move in condition form there was no filter placed at all at move in and the unit was not cooling or maintaining a temperature. 2. Garage door repair – The garage door was in working condition upon move out and had not been altered, damaged or changed within our stay at the property. 3. Gate repair – The fence and gate around the property were damaged, had holes, and were leaning at move in as noted on our move in condition form. 4. Carpet odor treatments – The carpet had stains and foul odor at move in as noted on our move in condition form. This was reported early in our lease as a problem that was not tolerable. Carpet cleaners were sent out to the house. The carpet cleaner explained to us that the carpet had just been cleaned and he would not bring his equipment in and clean it again. He explained it was not necessary because the stains could not be fixed. He proceeded to spray deodorizer on the carpet and told us that would be the best he could do. This did not fix the problem. I bought throw rugs and placed them over the large stains and foul odor areas so my family and I would not have to walk on that area of carpet and the rugs could be washed frequently. 5. Toilet seat – The toilet seat/lid combination was broken at move in and noted on our move in condition form. 6. Broken blinds – Broken blinds were noted on our move in condition form as well. The deductions were in the amount of $431.22. The company stated that they would return the charge for broken blinds, toilet seat, and garage door repair in the amount of $178.82. All of the charges are preexisting and documented in the move in condition form. The home was in disarray upon arriving with a clogged air conditioner, damaged fence, and stained and foul odor on the carpets. A move in condition form, move in inspection, pictures, and neighbor witnesses can all be provided if needed to prove claim. I am filing suit on the 26th of July, 2013 if they do not return my full deposit.
Desired Settlement: $431.22 refunded
We spoke with the owner of the property and the owner agreed to release the full amount of the security deposit to the tenant. The tenant was a great tenant during their stay at our property. This dispute was resolved within 24hrs of it's occurrence. Because of our expeditious response we request that, with the consent of the complainant, this negative complaint be struck for the record of the better business bureau.
[To assist us in bringing this matter to a close, you must give us a reason why you are rejecting the response. If no reason is received your complaint will be closed Administratively Resolved]
Business Response: When this client initially disputed the security deposit we responded immediately with the information we had at hand. After additional correspondence we dove into more research regarding the file. While we are apologetic that we did not come up with the resolution that the tenant initially wanted, we did in the end determine that this tenant was correct in their position. This entire dispute and resolution was achieved in less than 24 hrs. Red Wagon has no further position to take at this time.
