Complaint: Stone Forest Property Management is a property management company is careless and negligent and has caused tens of thousands of dollars of damage to my home. **** ****** is the owner as reported by the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies. The unit where I live is a condominium, which ***** the Property Management Company (PMC) was hired by the Home Owners Association (HOA) to manage the various upkeep and maintenance activities at the condominium complex. I only recently purchased this ***** so I was not involved in decision. Each owner at each condominium pays Stone Forest LLC a fee (about $155 each month, x20 units). I work primarily from home, and as a network engineer for a very large software development company, I keep a lot of computer equipment in the second bedroom of my apartment; servers, routers, swithces, firewalls, etc - a full test lab network. Last weekend I went camping and we got rained out, there were minor but consistent thunderstorms so we headed home. Upon returning home on Sunday night I discovered the corner of the office ceiling was wet and dripping water directly onto a **** *** server with redundant *** **** in it! This is a very expensive piece of equipment and theserver was beginning to show signs of water damage already (high cooler utilization, drive errors and thrashing). Beneath that was a ***** **** (****-series router with dual *** cards), and that was flashing alarms. I hung up a tarp in order to funnel the dripping ceiling into a bucket and to protect the rest of the hardware in the room as well as possible and checked the weather forecast. It was forecast, acording to the **** website, at that time, to rain very heavily Tuesday and Wednesday. The HOA is responsible for the roof of the ***** complex. I can only make repairs to or inside the walls. Being very concerned, and having limited time before the weather got worse, I called Stone Forest LLC immediately when they opened on Monday morning. I reported the issue to them and they said they would get someone up onto the roof to repair the leak immediately. I went to work that day, having some meetings which required me to be in my office that morning. The rain continued to worsen and I went home when possible to empty buckets but it was a losing battle - water was overflowing into the carpet and spreading across the floor through the carpet pads. I called Stone Forest again and this time I got through to **** ******. He reported that all roofers were too busy and would not go onto the roof in the rain. I suggested they wrap the area of the roof with tarps temporarily in order to mitigate the damage. They had the entire day Monday to repair or halt the quickly worsening damage. Tuesday and Wednesday it rained very hard, several inches at least, and by Thursday I had given up on Stone Forest completely. I contacted the HOA's ********* first, and was made aware that **** ****** had not even made the most basic effort to reach out to their ********* company. I filed a claim with them. I called my ********* agent and opened a claim with my home owners *********. Wednesday, water and fire damage mitigation and cleanup companies were called. I declined to use the company the HOA hired - I talked to them and suspect that they were more interested in saving Mr. ****** money than in fixing the problem. By this point, water is dripping into my livingroom, directly under the office space. The ceiling in the living room was sagging badly, and more computer equipment was failing in chain reaction. Mr. ****** rudely hung up the phone on me when I told him I would be using a different cleanup company than his buddies. At this point, I have around fifteen thousand dollars in damage to personal items and equipment in my home, and the ceilings in my living room and office have been removed. My furniture is wrapped in plastic on the deck. My wife and I are moving into a hotel, on my own dime at this point, while the constructions crews try to fix the damage. Looks like a couple weeks to go. My home owners ********* has initiated a subrogation suit against Mr. ****** and ******** ****** *********. Don't use these guys for property management. They are more interested in their bottom line than their customers. I will do what I can at the next HOA board meeting to fire these guys and fine someone else to maintain the property.
Desired Settlement: I will be working with the HOA and a number of lawyers to terminate any contract with this PMC and will be seeking to be made whole via legal and ********* channels. In the mean time I will not be paying any HOA dues to Stone Forest.
