this is freakin ridiculous. when we moved into our apt we paid a $1,000 deposit. which is a huge price for a deposit anyway. we asked why it was so high and if we would get it all back and they said yes, the owner asked it to be high in case anything happened and you will get it all back except $200 to clean the carpets at the end. when we moved out me and my fat 8 month pregnant butt spent three days straight in there cleaning because that's the kind of people we are. we wanted to leave the house in better shape then when we got it. i was actually pretty proud because i thought they would be happy to see it cuz i doubt that any other renter has left the house that spick and span. we have been waiting for our deposit in the mail for month and finally it came! we opened it up and it said not only did they keep our whole thousand dollar deposit, but we also owe THEM $40 more and if we don't pay it within five days they will send it to collections. let me show you a list of all they charged us for.
cleaning and maintenance $300
-back of front door is dirty and was painted in areas a different color white.
YA SURE BUT THE PEOPLE BEFORE US ARE THE ONES THAT PAINTED IT
-the wall behind the door has a white spot
UMMM YA THAT WAS THERE BEFORE TOO
-kitchen floor is dirty and stains by the refrigerator.
-THE FRIDGE IS THE OWNERS AND SO THAT SHOULD BE THEIR RESPONSIBILITY TO PAY FOR
-hall bathroom- the floor looks pink
YUP THAT WAS THERE WHEN WE MOVED IN TOO THE TILE IS JUST FADED. I DIDN'T FEEL THAT WAS NECESSARY TO NOTE WHEN WE MOVED IN. STUFF FADES, DUH
-the stopper is missing in the tub.
THE TUB DOESN'T REQUIRE A STOPPER YOU PULL UP THE METAL THING AND IT PLUGS. THERE NEVER WAS A STOPPER.
-there is an after market shower head.
ONCE AGAIN THERE WHEN WE MOVED IN, BUT I DIDN'T NOTE IT CUZ HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO KNOW IT'S AFTER MARKET.
-patch up job in master bath was not done properly
UHHHH THIS WE DID NOT DO EITHER I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT THERE WAS NO PATCHING IN THERE I EVER SAW.
-left tampons and towels under the sink
I WAS PARANOID ABOUT ACCIDENTALLY LEAVING SOMETHING THERE AND CHECKED EVERY CUPBOARD AND DRAWER TWICE. NONE OF OUR TOWELS ARE MISSING AND I HAVEN'T EVEN HAD TAMPONS IN THE HOUSE FOR NINE MONTHS DUH I'M PREGNANT
another cleaning fee $141
-used chemicals to clean all the soap scum from showers and toilets.
OK THAT I CAN UNDERSTAND BUT I DO THINK THE PRICE IS WAY HIGH FOR THAT. THAT ONE WE WILL NOT FIGHT.
another cleaning fee $149
this was to replace a dirty AC filter
THIS I UNDERSTAND, BUT AIR FILTER COST 9$
replace damaged toilet seats.
THE SEATS LOOK EXACTLY LIKE THEY DID WHEN WE MOVED IN AND WERE NOT DAMAGED IN ANY WAY. PLUS WHY SHOULD WE HAVE TO PAY FOR SOMEONE ELSES TOILET SEAT
landscaping fee $175
YA THE WEEDS IN OUR BACK YARD WERE THREE FEET HIGH, BUT THAT'S WHAT IS LOOKED LIKE WHEN WE MOVED IN. WE DIDN'T GET A FRESHLY WEEDED YARD WHEN WE MOVED IN SO WHY SHOULD WE PAY FOR THE NEXT PEOPLE TO. PLUS OUR BACK YARD IS ABOUT 5 TOTAL SQUARE FEET.....
vendor fee $60
THAT'S ALL IT SAYS I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT'S FOR
NEEDLESS TO SAY WE ARE DEMANDING THIS MONEY BACK, MINUS THE LITTLE DAMAGE THAT WE REALLY DID CAUSE. LIKE CARPET CLEANING, NAIL HOLES IN THE WALL, ETC. ANYWAYS. JUST DON'T RENT FROM PREFERRED PROPERTY MANAGENT. THEY TOLD US WHEN WE MOVED OUT THEY ARE STRUGGLING TO FILL ALL OF THEIR RENTALS AND DON'T THINK THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO SCREW US OUT OF OUR MONEY CUZ THEY ARE HURTING. I AM NOT USUALLY A MEAN OR REVENGEFUL PERSON, BUT I HAVE NEVER BEEN SCREWED LIKE THIS AND I HAVE NEVER BEEN THIS MAD IN ALL MY LIFE. ***** END OF RAMPAGE
