BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating Overview
BBB Customer Reviews Rating represents the customers opinions of the business. The Customer Review Rating is based on the number of positive, neutral and negative customer reviews posted that are calculated to produce a score.
|Customer Review Experience||Value|
|Positive Review||5 points per review|
|Neutral Review||3 points per review|
|Negative Review||1 point per review|
BBB letter grades represent the BBB's opinion of the business. The BBB grade is based on BBB file information about the business. In some cases, a business' grade may be lowered if the BBB does not have sufficient information about the business despite BBB requests for that information from the business.
BBB Letter Grade Scale
Star Rating scale
BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.

Complaint: I filled out a application with this cimpact for an apartment. I paid an application fee of $50. I got approved for the apartment but the girl who processes the applications told me that the tenant decided to renew the lease. She also told me that if I couldn't find amother property of their to rent that she would refund my application fee. Well I didn't and I started looking else where. I found someone where else to stay so I informed her of that and asked for my application fee back. She she that they were not going to give it back anymore. Why, I do not know. clearly she said if I didn't find a property with then that they would return it. I left a message with her boss to contact because I want what was promised and it was a inconvenience to advertise an apartment and then it's not available. I have not heard anything from anyone from thus company.
Desired Settlement: I would like what was promised which is a refund for my application fee.
I am responding to the Complaint # ********. When Ms. ****** applied for the property she was approved with a Double Security Deposit. She stated that she did not get paid until that Friday and she could have the money by then. The next day, I contacted her stating that the tenant was probably going to renew the lease and since she could not have the money in before the tenant resigned then it would be a waste of her time. She could have rented the property but she stated she did not have the security deposit readily available.
The same day I contacted her stating that the tenant had officially changed his mind and did not want to renew so the property was still available. At this point in time she said she had found another place. Our offer still stands in the matter if she would like to apply for one of our other properties we would approve her without another fee but with the same security deposit stipulations.
On her application, it clearly states "Once this application has been processed and and deposit money has been collected you forfeit your deposit in the event you do not sign a lease." I do apologize for the misunderstanding this has caused, but we are more than willing to apply her application fee to any other property that we have that's available. Please contact me if you have any questions. Thanks

They offer to give me my application fee back if I decided not to go with a different property. It does not matter what anything states when you offered to give my money back. I would have never started looking for another place to stay. I will never rent from this company or occupy any locations that they have. I will take this matter as far as I need to.

Complaint: This complaint seeks the return of my security deposit for the total of $338.00 from Lauer Real Estate Group.On July 24th, 2013 I received my security depost from a rental house with $338.00 removed for "Cleaning", "Steam" and "Lawn". I objected formally in writing and the notice was received by Lauer on July 31st, 2013, by certified mail. Receipt in hand. I requested the sum be returned within 30 days of July 31st, 2013 and have not gotten any information back.Upon vacating the premises I cleaned the house thoroughly including all carpets. One day prior to lease ending the lawn was mowed and general care was taken to the grounds. Any claims against the security deposit therefore seem to be in addressing ordinary wear and depreciation which is not allowed by the lease agreement and Florida law. I made an effort to be available for a move-out inspection but the landlord was not interested.
Desired Settlement: Return the remaining security deposit totaling $338.00.
