My 2 roommates, and myself, signed a lease in October 2013 with ***** ****** for 3 bd 3 bath house for $1300 a month. Our home came with washer/dryer, dishwasher, and stove/oven/microwave. Two days after we signed our lease, the oven went out. Two days after that my bathroom flooded. The water was coming out of my toilet, sink and bathtub. It took him 2 days to get someone out to fix the clog, and another day after that to have someone come out and suck the water out of the carpet in my room, and another room. The oven has yet to be fixed. About a month ago, I expressed my concern about mold and mildew in the walls and carpet. He sent out his "handyman" to look at the problem. He reassured us that there was no mold and the musky smell was from the age of the house. Yesterday I was rolling up an air mattress that was in the other room where the flood occurred. The carpet was STILL wet from the flood, so I bent down to smell the carpet and I smelled nothing but mildew. I have a 8 year old who spends 1/2 the week with me, and one of my other roommates is pregnant. I am VERY concerned that we have been breathing in mold/mildew for the past 2 months.I contacted a local mold inspector to have them come out as soon as possible to get a professional opinion but was informed that Mr.****** is the one who has to inquire about their services . Mr.****** has been aware of all issues, and I have the emails to prove it.

Desired Settlement
Since this has been an on going battle, we would either like to be out of our lease, or receive an abatement on our rent.

Business Response
In response to the complaint. Management received notice the stove and microwave combo set stopped working on 10/6/13. My preferred Appliance repair company scheduled an appointment and was at the house to address the issue on 10/9/13. We determined that the control board for the oven was burnt out and had to be replaced. The control board was sent back to the manufacturer to be rebuilt. At this time we informed the tenants this process will take 4 to 6 weeks. In the meantime Management purchased the tenants a new microwave on 10/15/13. I created a since of urgency with the Appliance repair Company to resolve this issue as quickly as possible. There were a few sets backs with the control board but the oven microwave combo has been fixed.
In the evening of 10/7/13 a repair request was submitted by the tenants about a plumbing problem in the downstairs bathroom. That evening between 8:15 P.M. and 9:45 P.M. communication between Management and the tenants took place about the problem. My general contractor was also communicated with that evening and instructions to put this repair first on the schedule for the following morning took place. My contractor set an appointment with them at their earliest availability the morning of 10/8/13, text message confirmation of 9:30 A.M. After a few hours of work it was determined that a Professional Plumbing company with better plumbing equipment was needed. Immediately the Professional Plumbing company was contacted and went to the property to resolve the back up the same day 10/8/13. They resolved the issue by 4 P.M. but the tenants followed up with an additional maintenance request that the carpet downstairs got wet during this situation. On 10/10/13, a water extraction of the carpet took place. The carpet expert preformed the following work to the bedroom carpet and the basement kitchenette carpet. Extracted water, sprayed odor neutralizer & odor remover, extracted carpet again and accelerated drying using turbo dryer. At which point we thought the issue was resolved and the maintenance request were closed.
On 10/14/13 that the tenants complained about the carpets having an odor. I personally went to check it out and I did not notice any odor or any signs of moisture present in the carpets. Since then we have had a few minor maintenance request that are unrelated and all has been resolved on a timely basis. The indication the tenants still had an issue present was not brought back to my attention until the Complaint was submitted through the BBB.
The day of the complaint 1/3/14, the tenants were communicated with about the problem. The concerns were re-addressed and discussed. After presenting the tenants with a few options, we came to the determination that they would like to continue to reside in the home but they want the carpet and smell looked at by a professional. On 1/9/14 a reputable company who handles moisture mediation was set up to look at the problem. We have a full diagnostic report that has been presented to the owner. We are in the process of determining the methods of which to resolve the issue. I can confirm there is no present moisture in the carpets or walls. However because of the leak that occurred In October, there is water damage that needs to be further mitigated. Management will continue to follow through on a timely basis to properly resolve the complaints brought forth by the tenants.
