Consumer Complaint: On XX/XX/2016, I was given the go ahead to buyout my rental lease and was given the information that I must pay approximately {$2300.00} and be out by the end of XX/XX/2016. I paid that total and still had a {$1000.00} deposit to apply to any damages. When we left we took pictures and there was nothing wrong with the house, but then they put on our credit report that we owe over {$1600.00}. They send a detail statement that says we owe for painting a house that we have been there for over 2.5 years and the original company was brought out by two other companies and no one came to do a walk through from previous XXXX. I have tried numerous times to rectify with current company, but they have sold to a third party and they have no idea the situation.
