"I was in the
for a property manager to manage one of my apartment buildings. I contacted
during business hours" and the call
to voicemail. I left a detailed message with my contact information and never received a call back. From the view of an investment property owner it's already a bad sign when a property manager doesn't answer the phone during business hours, although I do understand being on the other line, or driving, or working something else at the moment the call was received. Not immediately calling back, however, indicates a lack of concern for your customers and even the tenants which is simply bad for business. I didn't even need an interview to know this company wasn't what I was looking for.

"Everything was fine until it was time to return our deposit and they took out 300.00 for a broken HDMI cord that we never used. My husband was there for the final" walk-thru and turned our keys in, they never mentioned a damaged cord so anyone could have damaged the cord. They will not return the deposit and a HDMI cord is about 50.00 they claim drywall work to get to the HDMI cord, again not our fault nor did we use the item. Park Ave
is a rental company to be very cautious of using.

Most states require a seller or landlord to disclose a death in the home. Absent of there being an undisclosed death, the tenant doesn't have a leg to stand on. Usually, small claims court will order the tenant to forfeit the deposit and pay for any unrented time in the home. However, if the tenant can prove that there was an undisclosed death in the home prior to their renting it, you may be liable for a full refund of all rents, deposits and moving expenses.

Are the heat pumps commercial or residential units?
Are the heat pumps Package or Split System?
Are there actually 33 PTAC units?
Are you an EPA certified person( refrigerant )?

Here is my suggestion, break it down into manageable portions(ie one heat pump and a few PTAC units every other month) to keep from being overloaded.  
Clean/Replace filters
Check/inspect electrical wiring and connections
Check amperage draw of compressors/motors 
Check capacitance of start and run capacitors
Check contractors/relays for wear/pitting
Check refrigerant levels and record superheated/subcooling
Check external static pressures across air handler(s)
Check deltaT (return and supply air temps) 
Lubricate motors( if applicable)
Inspect Belts/Pulleys( if applicable)
Clean outdoor coils
Clean indoor coils

Start there and HAVE FUN!!!

is extremely unreliable and unprofessional. They do everything they can to get you to rent, don't live up to their promises, are unreliable in repair orders, and seem to have different employees every week. If you have to do business with them (not recommended), make sure you get EVERYTHING in writing.

We engaged them in 2013 to lease out one of our townhomes (a unit that was in pristine conditions with a ton of improvements) to test them out when we moved away and could not longer manage our properties directly.
After going through the onboarding and signing the management agreements, we were assigned a leasing agent. He took pictures, put the sign in the yard and posted the listing and then...nothing for about 6 weeks. A neighbor of the property even contacted the leasing agent per the number on the sign because he was interested in moving - he never even heard back.
I was following up with the leasing agent after I learned that, and he kept calling my husband, instead of me, which was irritating, because I was the primary contact.
We finally got some activity after several follow ups and inquiries we initiated, and we got an acceptable lease offer and tenants moved in for a 16 months lease.
So, tenants move in and shortly thereafter, in February of 2014, we get an email from our property manager, alerting us that our hardwood bathroom floors are coming off the floor and that we need to fix them - AFTER the inspection at move-in recorded that the flooring was in perfect condition. Instead of investigating and going back to the tenant, they blamed us for installing hardwood floors in the bathrooms (which were professionally installed, wet-room rated, premium pre-finished floors SPECIFICALLY for bathrooms). After many back and forth emails, with property manager and owner
Middletown Property Management Companies Provider Name Locked
(who kept trying to put the blame on us - the owners who pay them to act on behalf of OUR interest NOT the tenants), they finally got the tenants to admit that they flooded the floors and that the bathroom floors were warping because of their kid was using the bathtub and splashing water all over them. Not to mention here that HRS ordered tiles and put them on our monthly statement without our authorization, because we casually discussed replacing the floors with tiles if damage gets worse, and we even offered splitting cost with tenants (we were trying to be nice and compromise just to move on with things) as one of the options. Kindly, HRS removed the cost (and the tiles) from our statement and basement after a very candid call with the owner
Middletown Property Management Companies Provider Name Locked
, during which she reassured us that HRS works on behalf of homeowner and that things will be handled with better communications moving forward.
After we declined to pay for the floor damage done by tenants, miraculously, the floors "settled" after tenants installed a shower curtain and added a floor mat. So when tenants broke the lease and moved out, the inspection (that we were charged $130 for and that is conducted by Home Rentals contractor of record) supposedly showed no damage and tenant was released and fully refunded their deposit (with minimal communication to us during the entire process).
However, when the next tenants moved in and out after a short-term lease of 5 months (with neither move-in or out inspection recording damage - again HRS' "own" inspection company), and we put the house on the
Middletown Property Management Companies Provider Name Locked
the day they moved out, a real-estate inspection during the sales process found that the floors are loose and warping and we had to give buyer a significant concession to fix, due to the inability of Home Rentals to address the issue with the tenant that causes the damage in the first place.
There were so many other issues we experienced (using overpriced contractors of their own, not communicating, etc.), that I am not even bothering listing them all (even though charging us $500+ to replace 3 toilet flappers was a highlight).
In summary, this has been one of the worst experiences we had with a service company. Period. Not only did we
Middletown Property Management Companies Provider Name Locked
money from all the fees, tenant damage not addressed, and overpriced maintenance (in comparison to the other rental properties we own and manage), the time and effort we spend following up, resolving issues and simply getting them to do the job we hired them to do - managing the property on OUR behalf, not trying to protect the tenant and seeing us as a cash cow - has been a challenge to say the least.
So if you have a choice, do pass on HRS for your property management needs and find a company that is dedicated to serving their paying customer (=Home Owners) as the #1 priority and makes communication and transparency their mission.

We unfortunately signed a 2 year contract with
Middletown Property Management Companies Provider Name Locked
Mtn
Middletown Property Management Companies Provider Name Locked
and the tenant. The first year went fairly smoothly with rent generally paid on time or within a reasonable grace period. However, the second year was a total nightmare. The rental agent communicated with us by text or email only after numerous requests when she bothered to respond at all. The tenant began paying the rent later and later and when it was paid, the rental agent often had a week to 2 weeks delay in depositing it to our account. By the end of the lease, the tenant left owing us 2 and a half months rent which was over $3000. She also did not return keys or the garage door opener. The agent has made no attempt to recover anything on our behalf. The agent totally mishandled our lease and failed to follow through with her contractual obligations to us. DO NOT use this company for rental management.

Horrible experience with
Middletown Property Management Companies Provider Name Locked
!
1. They're bad at communicating and getting things taken care of in a timely manner the tenants ended up contacting us directly to get things done. They mentioned how difficult it was to get
Middletown Property Management Companies Provider Name Locked
to respond to them as well. When we WERE contacted by
Middletown Property Management Companies Provider Name Locked
, it was always a different rep who we had not previously worked with, no consistency.
2. The owner statements are hard to follow at times and we had to calculate every expense to make sure they weren't charging duplicate monthly management fees (this had happened a few times).
3.
Middletown Property Management Companies Provider Name Locked
did not collect all the keys from the previous tenant upon moving out. We were missing electronic key fobs that we had to pay to replace for our next tenants.
Middletown Property Management Companies Provider Name Locked
also made multiple copies of the house keys without our knowledge or approval. 5 months after we cancelled our contract with
Middletown Property Management Companies Provider Name Locked
, we received more copies of the house keys... We will now be changing the locks.
We would not recommend this company to anyone, it is definitely not worth the monthly management fees and 1st month's rent. It's SUPER easy to figure out all the rental property paperwork yourself, probably why

were very professional and sent me the paperwork needed right away. They were very patient and answered all my questions and concerns. I have the best tenant and just needed a new company due to previous company sold. They were very understanding and even advised me on how to switch everything to them. Thank you very much for everything.
