Property Managing reviews in Winter Springs
They were referred to me from a friend of mine (who I’ve updated and suggested they not refer this company anymore), so I went with them after minimal investigation. It started off smooth enough; signing forms, getting a list of suggested repairs and the quotes for them, explanation that we were trying to maintain a budget but still wanted to get the needed things done, etc. etc. Finally all things were set to get up on the
It took more than 6 months to find a tenant after we’d signed the papers, and then only if we came down $100 off rent. At that point we were willing to negotiate and their credit and prior rental history was checked and approved by
Everyone who rents has probably had the “needy” tenant; the one that calls about every little thing. I believe that’s why management companies exist, right? One guy said, “This person is crazy, I sure wish I had a company that would help me manage the tenant and I’d just pay them a monthly fee. That’d be nice!” Well, I think this tenant trained all those other “needy
tenants” on how to act. I
instance was cutting open all the windows in the house (built in 1950’s). The person responsible for maintenance cited not running the a/c as the reason, when I asked the head of the company why the tenant wasn’t running the a/c and that doing so could damage the walls and floors, he stated it was for safety purposes. Hmmmm. Rinse and repeat that scenario several times over.
Now we’re at move-out time and this property management company contacted me b/c the tenant has written a threatening letter citing the unsatisfactory conditions in which she lived in the prior year (I lived with my entire family there for 6 years) and hinting at a lawsuit. While they’re shaking in their boots, I simply smell an attempt to get back the deposit in full. I advise them to do the walkthrough as normal and let me know what they find. This is where the whole thing took a nose dive.
They came back to me and said all was good and the tenant should get back all of their deposit, except for what I had previously paid for the tenant to make an erroneous service call in the middle of the night. OK I say, but my wife and I will come down to turn the house for the next tenant and get it ready to go on the
Now, having been on both sides of the tenant/landlord relationship, I know there’s some give-and-take and that you’ll always have a sharper eye as the landlord, but there’s no person on God’s green earth that would say, “Sure! They should have 100% of their deposit back.” They were purely afraid of the threatened lawsuit. The problem was how they handled it. Rather than saying they we're frightened about a lawsuit, they claimed that they didn’t paint the whole house (I had photos and records they did), they claimed I denied some of their suggested repairs prior to move in (I had records I didn’t), they even claimed I advised on having a sub-par paint job to stay in budget (I didn’t and have records to prove it)!! The conversation around this went on for weeks and they continued to lie to me, attempt to rewrite the past, claim they had started work when they didn’t, etc. It was astonishing to me that
End of the day, they gave the tenant 100% of the deposit back, I still had to replace the carpet and paint the interior all out of my
pocket due to this tenant, as well as work for days on end with my wife to repair the damages made to the house. I fired this company and have since found a great company and tenant (was on the
