Read Complaint Details
Complaint: This business charged a fee for the security deposit, which was signed and agreed upon. The problem is they cannot provide proof of damages with time stamps of photos that they provided and I am 100% no damage was made by my party. With that being said, that argument was brought up and I made the dispute with the property management team about alleged damage to a couch cushion. At the time of damage reported, multiple requests were made for previous tenants inspection reports were requested as well as an itemized receipt for the damages repaired. Only an estimation was made, which was in my opinion, grossly overpriced for the reupholstering of a couch cushion, and this is what the charge was based off of. A request for an itemized receipt had been made. Some back story to the dispute is that they front desk attendant told us to be very careful about the damages because the previous tenants were charged their entire security deposit due to the large damages that were inflicted. This is the reasoning for requesting the damage and inspection form from the previous tenants, because if there are burn damages as well, then they are trying to pass damage onto my party from a previous tenant. They refused to provide said documentation. They did not provide any ACTUAL proof of damage and every time information was requested to validate their claim, they would not provide the information. A summary of the claim listed is the failure to provide an itemized receipt for the damages that were repaired and charged to the card. Other complaints include: customer service failed to provide assistance, the failure to respond to phone calls or written requests for assistance or support, the company has failed to provide the explanation of charges and the company has unethical collection practices.
Desired Settlement: My desired outcome is to A: get a refund for the damages that were not inflicted by my party, and apology from the general manager for the poor handling of the situation and confirmation of processes changes that will be implemented so that these poor business practices do not continue for others. or B: provide valid documentation that my party actually inflicted the damages to the couch cushion. This documentation required for proof would be time stamped photographs, the previous tenants itemized damage receipt and the actual inspection report from their inspectors. If the valid proof is provided that the damage was done by my party, then the dispute will be dropped, I will will apologize for wasting time. So far, no attempt has been made by the staff to resolve this dispute.
First off, the guest issuing this complaint is not the tenant whom we have a relationship with. This is because the tenant "of record" (person whose name the reservation is under, the person who signed our check-in form and took responsibility)...in this case is a different individual. This tenant of record has not issued a complaint through the BBB, nor has he disputed the $200 credit card charge for the cushion upholstery repair. The invoice for the repair of the cushion was emailed to the tenant of record (a Mr. *******), and we did not hear back from him. I have attached it here for you as well.
Thank you for your timely response. Attached you will find the authorization form from ******* ******* for me to be his acting agent, the original email, the original photo presented about the burnt cushion and the ONLY receipt that was sent in regards to the claim. This claim had been disputed by ******* ******* to no avail and this is when I stepped in. It frightens me that a company can do business without proper proof or validation of allegations and not keep records of these incidences and inspections. How is a property management company manage without records. This quote provided by Mr. ********* was not sent to ******* ******* or anyone from the party, this is the first time it has been seen and still not a valid proof of receipt for charging a credit card. I believe that asking for documentation from the company is fair to validate their claims and all of this documentation has been requested by ******* ******* in the past.
A resolution can be reached by either refunding the card and issuing an apology to my entire party for this claim of damage to the couch cushion or by providing valid documentation for the damages, i.e. time stamped photos, previous tenants inspection report, the inspection report from our stay and a receipt of the actual damages repaired.
Business Response: I stand by my original response. The item was damaged during the time of their occupancy. The consumer claims he is certain no damage occurred during their stay. I can see how he would think that, as the cushion was most likely not intentionally damaged. However, it was left leaning against a baseboard heater, and as a result it was burnt. A receipt for the repair of the cushion was provided. A photo was also provided. Our inspectors are in the unit before and after each tenant, and are well aware of the condition of the property both before and after every reservation. I am sorry the consumer disagrees.
