Additional Notes

Complaint: I reserved a house for a weekend vacation rental. I paid the deposit. This company asked be to sign a contract after accepting my money. They cancelled my reservation without my permission because I had not signed their contract a month prior to coming to town. They told me in writing they would reinstate the reservation if I would sign the contract in the next 2 days. I told them I could not sign the contract until a licensed professional called me to discuss it (California law requires property management companies to have licensed agents discuss contracts. Unlicensed individuals may not discuss contracts). The unlicensed rep (*****) refused to have a supervisor, Broker, or licensed professional contact me and stated she would not hold the property unless I signed the contract immediately without talking to a licensed agent. This is not only terrible service but illegal.

Desired Settlement: My reservation needs to be reinstated immediately and a licensed professional needs to call me prior to me signing their contract.

Business Response:

To Whom It May Concern:


I am writing with regard to the complaint filed by Mr. ****, ID #*******. The January 22, 2013 date given as the date of purchase is incorrect. Mr. **** made his reservation on March 7, 2014 when he reserved one of our vacation rentals for two nights this May. He was emailed on March 7, 2014, explaining the procedure with regard to signing paperwork.  He was called on March 9, 2014 and a message was left explaining that we had not yet received his signed documents so his reservation was not confirmed. On March 17, 2014 we re-sent the documents along with another request for his signatures, which Mr. **** said he would have into us by March 18, 2014. We emailed him again on March 23, 2014 and I personally left a message regarding the documents on April 2, 2014, informing him that if we did not receive the signed documents by April 4, 2014 the reservation would be cancelled.


Mr. **** was given ample time to sign the contract and credit card receipt in order to avoid cancellation. Mr. ****’s refusal to sign and his demands to speak with a Broker or Licensed Agent are completely puzzling as neither broker nor agent is required for rentals less than 30 days in length.


**** never refused to let him speak to our broker or to me, the licensed agent, she merely told him that we would not be making the call as the 2 day rental did not have anything to do with any level of Real Estate Licensing.


She repeatedly told Mr. **** that she would be happy to reinstate his booking upon receipt of his signed paperwork.


Since then, Mr. **** has sent his signed paperwork and we have reinstated and confirmed his reservation.
