Consumer Complaint: XX/XX/2015 – Moved out of rental property in XXXX, GA completing required move out obligations with property management company XXXX XXXX XXXX. Move out inspection was scheduled after relocation date for my work and rendering me unable to attend. XXXX into XXXX I contacted the Rental Property Manager to inquire about the status of my security deposit return as I had not received it. The manager informed me that I would not be receiving the deposit and in addition I would be responsible for charges that I was until that point unaware of. Requesting documentation of these alleged charges I was hard pressed to recieve anything from the rental property as they had little to no records of my lease agreement the result of an acquisition. I still affirm that these charges were fabricated and illegitimate. Communication with the Property Management Company deteriorated as the Manager no longer responded to voicemail nor was available for conversation. XXXX of the following year debt collection attempts began immediately prompting my dispute letter to the company Fair Collections and Outsourcing, these attempts to dispute the information with them directly went unanswered. See attachment for reference regarding the events that there unfolded.
