Additional Notes

Complaint: My husband and I applied for a 2 bedroom apartment in Alicia Plaza Apartments in Laguna Hills, Ca. (part of Arnel Corp.) in February 17th, it took 7 days for them to let us know that we weren't approved without a cosigner, at the moment we didn't find anybody to do that for us, so we were declined, we paid $240.00 for deposit and 2 applications ($40.00 dlls. each), they're not returning $80.00 and even though it is not fair, we're still waiting for the difference ($160 Dlls.) I've been calling first the office at Alicia Plaza Apartments, they gave me the phone number (714) 4815100, they connected me with Miss *****, but she is never available and so nobody answers that extension. We are very upset with this situation, we know it is not a lot of money but it is not acceptable for them to take somebody's money and never return it. It is NOT theirs, please help out with this situation, we need our refund check ASAP. Thank you. ****** N.

Desired Settlement: To send me immediatly a $160 dlls. check.

Business Response:

Resident received check and cashed the check on 5/5/14.

Thank you,

Consumer Response:


Better Business Bureau:

I have reviewed the response made by the business in reference to complaint ID *******, and find that this resolution resolved the problem in part, I don't understand why it took them two months to give me back my refund check if they promised me the check in 21 days in February 22. I understand there isn't much I can do now, after they made me wait this long, after all I have my check now, but they need to resolve this matters a lot quicker.


****** *******

BBB's Final Determination: Consumer accepted resolution offered by the business.
