People approach the property managers for the details of the house. We trust them so that we won’t get inconvenience in finding the right home for rent. The give us the information about the area of house, amount of security deposit and rents. But, there are some property management companies who fool the people and take undue advantage of their situations.
Few days back, I was cheated by a property dealers. I along with my family decided to move to a new place. While shifting to a new place, we generally ask for security deposit that we gave earlier at first time entering into rent agreement.
I lived there for one year. I paid my security deposit and both rents on time. But these cruel people took extra amount in name of rent from me. They didn’t give me any information about this amount. When I pay rent, a person comes at my place every month to collect some extra charges. When we asked them, they told that they are a part of rental payments.
All the clients including me got problems due to these fraudulent practices. They didn’t inform any of us regarding the increase of rents and such other details. They charged a fix flat rate for every house. We didn’t get any facilities in the house although we stayed for one year.
I spent heavily on the repairs of the house. The ceilings were full of holes and cracks and there was a leakage from them. I asked the property managers several times for the remedy of this problem. But all my efforts were in vein. They didn’t reply to any of my phone calls and not emails too.
The windows were in poor conditions without glasses. I fixed the glasses with my money. Even after paying the security deposit along with timely rents, we didn’t get properly repaired bathrooms. The tiles were broken in the bathrooms. The walls had a leakage too which worsened our daily problems.
There are no place for disposal of wastage and rubbish matters. The property dealers were not concerned even a little for our serious problems. All what they did was giving us fake excuses. I didn’t get the proper documents of rental agreement too. They were increasing the amount of the house in the way they wanted.
I didn’t get even the proper notice prior to the increase of the rental amounts. All the people including me in this area were from the low income groups. The property managers knew this fact but still they went on charging a flat rent on all the houses in addition to rent. The real shock we got at the time of leaving the house.
Generally, we get back the security deposit back we paid first. But we didn’t get the security deposit back from these cheaters. And even the worst things of all was their criminal approach towards me and all other tenants. When we asked for returning our security deposits, one of the manager gave all of us the threats that he possesses the gun with him.
Such criminals should be held guilty for their acts by court. Beware of such fraudulent persons.
