Now through Mr.
Stay away from any condominium communities that use this management company. I dread to think how much of our money they have already wasted.
Our main contact at
A couple of weeks after they took over,
For some reason, the property managers sent me cutesy emails regarding rent and maintenance, even though we had requested that they send the information to my husband, whose military housing allowance was covering the rent. This wouldn't be a big deal, except that I had to ask them more than once to stop sending me emails, which, incidentally, were always addressed to my husband's and my given first names. Neither my husband nor I go by our legal first names; and if they knew us well enough to be calling us by our first names, they would have known that. But they apparently assumed that it's appropriate for people in a business relationship to automatically be on a first name basis. If they'd asked me, I would have told them to call me by my nickname. It's not that I want to be called "Mrs."; it's just that in a business relationship, it's proper to use titles unless invited to do otherwise. And it's yet another example of how presumptuous and unprofessional these property managers are. They treat renters like peons who should be grateful to be giving them money every month instead of the people who have given them work. If it weren't for renters hiring landlords, there would be no need for property managers.
Work orders were not always promptly addressed and
It took me yelling at them over the phone to get them to fix the broken garage door, which the original property managers had promised us would be fixed. That issue was finally addressed over a month after we moved in. Months later, a pipe on the pool filter broke and it took several weeks before it got fixed, again during drought conditions. The pump was spewing water all over the backyard and we had to manually shut it off every day to avoid wasting water. A week after that, the smoke alarms started going off in the middle of the night. That issue, at least, was fixed quickly.
The house was in poor condition when we moved in because the people who lived there before us were evicted and had trashed the place. We diligently notated all the problems in the house and took photos, which included filthy air conditioning filters, burned out lightbulbs, trash all over the backyard, a broken window, filthy carpets, dirty walls, Christmas lights on the back deck, toilet seats that were about to fall off and holes in the wall caused by a towel rack that was moved. There was a property inspection about three months before our lease ended. Our landlord invited us to stay another year, provided we sign a new lease locking us in for another year instead of going month to month as we had originally agreed. If we went month to month, the rent would be raised $100. The house was overpriced as it was and we were ready to move into a hotel before signing another year long lease. Fortunately, my husband was hired for a job abroad and we were able to move.
Moving was probably the worst part of our renting experience with
My father happened to die one day when we had a showing scheduled. My husband called to cancel the showing because it was scheduled for two hours after I got the news.
Be prepared to give up your privacy for the last month of your lease. They will send people over even when you have movers there trying to pack your stuff, and even if the place is a mess because the packers are there. They prefer it if you're not home during the showings and, in fact, we were originally under the impression that we needed to vacate the house during showings and take our dogs with us. For over half of our last month in that house, we put up with this and went to a local dog park in
Over a month after we moved out, we finally got our deposit back from
I was very worried that we would have to litigate in order to get our security deposit back. I went as far as joining the Texas Tenant's Union to find out what our rights were under Texas law because I was so sure they were going to screw us, which made it hard to relax and enjoy the property.
We think we're the best, and we can prove it.
Try an annual plan and if you want to cancel in your first year, we'll refund you 110%
