Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2015/02/23) */ Tenant received a late fee in August due to non-payment.Tenant contacted our office in regards to waiving this fee, however due to past account trends we declined. Tenant has been late for six consecutive month previous to this month. We have also in the past waived fees for him. Tenant was contacted by the District Manager after receiving complaints regarding two managers (one of which is mentioned in the BBB complaint) of which are no longer with the company. Tenant did not know this was the case, but discussed how he was being treated unfairly by them both. He was advised this was the case and that there is no one at the property that is trying to be "vindictive" to him. I also went over his payment history including late fees and rent increase which is why he still saw a balance even after making his payment for a few months. After explaining this to him, he was understanding to the situation. He explained that he was never explained the issue. As a final courtesy, we have waived his fees dating back to 8/7/14 along with a late fee for 1/7/15 due to not making his payment for the increase he received. Tenant was satisfied after courtesy waiver and was advised that when he makes his final payment, he will be up to date. He agreed and said he will make the payment as soon as possible. Received his payment today on on 2/23/15 which brings his account current.
