Additional Notes

Complaint: We terminated our lease with MPH on 7/1/2012 and have had several issues throughout the process. We have provided a detailed list of damages along with numerous photos of the damage to the home and this occurred within the first week of the lease termination. Then we were told MPH we would have to provide estimates for the damages. We obtained estimates and sent copies of the purchase orders and deposits into to MPH. Then on 7/26/12 we were told MPH will not process payment until we provide copies of paid receipts showing the items were installed, despite documented damages and purchase orders. Three emails disputing this refusal to pay for documented damages were sent to 3 different individuals at MPH. Two individuals failed to respond and one replied that they would not pay until the work was done. Our lease agreement with MPH list us as landlord and MPH as tenant, NOT property managers. The contract states they are responsible for up to $5,000 in damages and does not stipulate proving repairs being completed. Addtionally MCL 554.609 states "In case of damage to the rental unit or other obligation against the security deposit, the landlord shall mail to the tenant, within 30 days after the termination of occupancy, an itemized list of damages claimed for which the security deposit may be used as provided in section 7, including the ESTIMATED COST of repair of each property damaged item and the amounts and bases on which he intends to assess the tenant..." MCL 554.609 states estimated damages is fine. Therefore per our contract with MPH and MCL 554.609, MPH owes us for the $931.00 in documented damages.

Desired Settlement: Prompt payment of documented damages to the property in the amount of $931.00.
