Additional Notes

Complaint: I was required to sign a one year lease in May to renew our standing in our 3 bedroom 1 3/4 bath apartment in Moscow. I graduated in May knowing that I was going to be looking for a teaching position in August. I was told that I could "turn" my lease in order to get out of my year contract. In order to do this, Welcome Home PM told me that new tenants must be approved by the office and then we would have to work out the $850 deposit settlement between the new tenants and pay a $150 paperwork fee to have the office take our names off the lease and put the new tenants on. In August a family of tenants tried to rent, their application was turned down due to no income. The family had sold their business in Southern Idaho and the husband was going to start school at the University of Idaho and offered to pay cash up front to fulfill the entire remainder of the lease. They still turned them away. So we were still responsible for finding new tenants. We had a lady on October 1st, go to Welcome Home PM and fill out an application and they told her that she would be responsible for September's rent, October's Rent, and the deposit in full and still be responsible for all damages. This didn't sound fair to her so she ended up finding another place through welcome home and not filling in our lease. Knowing that we were only 5 days away from getting an eviction notice through Welcome Home, I feel as if Welcome Home talked her out of subletting our apartment and putting her into another one of their vacant units so that we are still responsible now for September, but also October's rents and until they get the unit filled. We have had two people interested in the unit and each time they go through the process one way or another they are turned down and we are still responsible for our unit. We have had several people look at the unit and mention that they would be working on the application and when calling the Welcome Home office they have no recollection of names or applications coming through.

Desired Settlement: We would like to have our lease terminated and no funds owed for rents unpaid.

Business Response: Better Business Bureau,

****** ****** approached Welcome Home regarding terminating her lease.  We gave her several options on the process of terminating a lease with Welcome Home Property.  We informed her the least expensive way for her to end her lease would be to advertise and find her own tenant to take over the lease.  We also informed her of the fee for Welcome Home to advertise and find a tenant for her, she opted to search for her own tenant for a lower fee.
The, "family", as ****** refers to them, came into Welcome Home and filled out an application.  While approving the prospective tenant we found the tenant did not have adequate income to rent the unit and we received an unfavorable rental reference regarding  this prospective tenant ****** sent to Welcome Home.  Unfortunately the tenant did not meet the minimum requirements and was denied to rent the property.
The second "lady" she referred to Welcome Home was approved to rent ****** ******'s rental but declined when she was informed there was a balance due on the account and she would be liable for the balance due by taking over ******'s lease.
****** called Welcome Home towards the end of  September and stated she was done trying and was giving up on trying to find a replacement tenant for her rental.  Also, she stated she was going to take the adds down and stop all advertising.  ****** is aware she is liable for the rent until we get the unit rented or her lease ends.  
****** never stated she would pay the balance on her account and not leave the new tenant responsible for the balance.  
When we show a unit we offer the prospective tenant an application to fill out, at no charge, and we start the process of having them approved.  If a prospective tenant does not fill out an application then we don't have information on them.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter between Welcome Home Property and ****** **** ******.
Sincerely,
***** ********** 
Welcome Home Property
