Read Complaint Details
Complaint: I relocated to Waukesha in late August for a new position. My roomate and I signed a lease for the ********** ********** with this management company in mid-September with the lease beginning on November 1st. In early October I was fired from my position and had to relocate back to Stevens Point for employment. We immediately notified Bielinski that we lost our main source of income and would not be taking occupancy of the apartment. At the time of the lease application our combined income was over $3,000 a month. My roomate is now back in school with minimal income and I am searching for employment. We will be lucky to have a combined $1000 monthly income. Through the last month we have called the Management Administrator at Bielinski multiple times each week to get updates on the process to rent the apartment. There seems to be no progress at all and with a minimal income we are now required to pay the rent until there is another lease signed. The problem is that we never took occupancy, the lease was signed for less than a month prior to having to relocate, and there seems to be minimal effort on behalf of the management company to re-rent the apartment. We have posted multiple advertisements concerning the apartment but now we are running out of resources and the rent alone for this apartment is going to bankrupt us.
Desired Settlement: We understand that this is a sticky situation all around, but we are simply asking to be worked with on this situation. We do not want to default on payments or have our credit score impacted and we want to avoid litigation, but we seem to have no choice since there is no way for us to pay the rent that we are being charged for an apartment that we never took occupancy in. We are hoping to be able to see reasonable effort on behalf of the management company to rent the apartment. We would be willing to even pay 2 months of rent and the cancellation fee. We have that much saved. Litigation and collections seem like such and expensive and unnecessary avenue for a lease that was signed for only a few weeks on an apartment that was never lived in.
Thank you for sharing the complaint with us.
The tenants have signed a legal contract with Bielinski Management which does obligate them for the apartment. October, November and December are generally our slowest months. We have shown the apartment many times and have taken an application on the unit, however, the application cancelled. We have been doing everything we can to try and help reduce their obligation, but we are limited to our leasing traffic. In an effort to help them out, we recently offered them a lease buyout option, which they have taken advantage of. I believe the issue has been resolved.
BBB's Final Determination: Business offered a resolution. Consumer did not pursue further with BBB and the matter was assumed to be resolved
