Complaint: We contracted with Home Sweet Home to rent our house for us. After the first renters left we received a bill for a new kitchen faucet and work order. The faucet has not been replaced. We also received a water bill that was not paid. We asked for pictures of the house after the renters left. None were taken or sent to us. We found it necessary to come back to the area and gave the renters 20 days notice to evacuate. We gave them over a month to vacate. The rental agency did not check the house after they left and gave them their whole deposit back. When we got here there was garbage on the front porch and in the sheds. The florescent lights were gone from the shop. There are holes in the walls. A Roof leaked in one of the out buildings and the ceiling, walls, floor and insulation needs to be replaced. Now we, once again, have a past due water bill from them. When we have contacted Home Sweet Home they tell us they had no responsibility to check the house or to keep the deposit when so much damage was done.
Desired Settlement: We believe home sweet home is responsible for the entire deposit they gave these tenants.
Business Response: Business' Initial Response /* (1000, 6, 2013/06/21) */ Home Sweet Home Property Management did represent Mr.and Mrs. ****** by renting out their home located at **** Olympia Street ******** Wa. The terms and conditions of their tenants lease were for the period of December 14, 2012, through December 31, 2013. It was the ****** who forced the situation of their tenants yearlong lease to be broken. The ****** were made aware the lease was legal and binding as well as a year's lease. On the ******** insistence, the tenants were invited to move out prematurely. The tenant's were highly upset as they had only been in the home a short time as well as the wife was pregnant and the husband had left for the west coast for employment and would not be available to move his family. The current tenants had asked if the owners of their rental would help them financially as they did not have the means to move and wanted, very much,to continue their lease at **** Olympia in ******** Wa. The owner would only agree to a refund of the tenants paid deposit and no more. After extensive discussions with the tenants by Home Sweet Home PM, the tenants agreed to vacate under the pretense they would be allowed to use their current deposit as part of the finances to pay their new rental deposit,if they would please vacate so the owners may then reside at **** Olympia ******** themselves. The tenants vacated on a Thursday and it is believed the owners were in the house themselves two days later, Saturday. Due to the distance of the rental, Home Sweet Home had not had the opportunity to get into the unit to do any type of assessment. The ****** were phoned by Home Sweet Home to inform them the keys were turned in by their tenants, the ******' in turn informed Home Sweet Home that they had already been in the home that Saturday. On behalf of Home Sweet Home, we feel the ****** are responsible for all their concerns regarding their rental home located at **** Olympia ******** Wa. Home Sweet Home did everything possible to represent both parties, the owner's and the tenants, to the best of our abilities under the extenuating circumstance brought on by Mr.and Mrs. ****** in forcing the tenant to break their yearlong lease.
