Additional Notes

Complaint: I was charged or 10 days of rent or an unoccupied unit when I gave over 30 days notice to vacate. I gave notice to vacate The ***** Apartment at XXXXX ** ****** Street ***** ********* ** on ********** I had a security deposit of $1177.50 due to me minus utilities and carpet cleaning totaling $147.57, which should resulted in a refund of $1029.93. It took me until 6/13 to receive a refund of $557.84. I spoke to ****** at the corporate office and tried to speak to **** the apartment manager several times to get resolved. No one has returned my emails, or calls. By law any security deposits should be refunded to me with in 30 days, and I am owed a detailed explanation of what I was charged for. I had to call the office and have an assistance send me a detail of charges, and that is when I discovered being charge for 10 days of rent for $437.09 after giving proper notice.

Desired Settlement: I am seeking a refund of the 10 days rent totaling 437.09 as the apartment manager charged me for time not in the apartment, and my Lease ended 5/1/2014. I feel that the manager is retaliating because of my moving and the loss of business the complex is experiencing.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (4000, 15, 2014/08/29) */ When the residents moved into apartment XXXXX at The *****, they signed a one-year lease with a lease term beginning May 11, 2013 and ending May 10, 2014. The lease stated that the prorated rent for the first month was due on May 11, 2013 and further stated, "Thereafter, you must pay rent on or before the 1st day of each month. I hope this clarifies the former resident's question regarding monthly payment of rent. In signing this lease, the resident agreed to pay rent on by first of the month through the end of the lease term, May 10, 2014. The staff at The ***** explained the resident's responsibility to pay rent through the end of the lease term on several occasions, at least as early as April 3, 2014 when the notice to vacate was received. Following the receipt of the notice to vacate the staff at The ***** would have taken steps to market the unit for occupancy soon after the vacate date. At the time the notice was received there were numerous units available in that floor plan, which made that process more difficult. In good faith, the refund check in the amount of $557.84 was prepared on May 27, 2014 and mailed the following day. The check was mailed to the resident's former address at The *****, but as the resident states, "I do have forwarded mail coming all the time," so that should not have prevented the check from reaching the resident. I've attached a copy of this check to this response. The manager at The ***** did not charge rent through May 10, 2013 as a retaliatory gesture. Our corporate office didn't know of the resident's complaint regarding the 10 days rent until after the first check was mailed. The second check, sent in response to the resident's call, was received by the resident and was for the same amount as the first check. The manager charged the disputed ten days of rent as an obligation to enforce the terms of the lease. I can furnish additional documents for the resident to document the dates mentioned above. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (4200, 17, 2014/09/04) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) The response from the business is only a statement of what was already communicated. There is no resolution proposed for me to agree to. The only resolution I am open to is a refund.I agreed to split the difference with them over the matter.
