Consumer Complaint: As I stated in a previous complaint, XXXX XXXX ( once managed by XXXX XXXX XXXX XXXX, and XXXX, NOW CURRENTLY managed by XXXX XXXX ) has been unfairly discriminating against me since I moved in and out of their terrible apartment community.
Their community is infested with bugs, vermin, and the like ( both people and animals ). I had a horrible time attempting to fix issues that started with their improper leasing and discriminatory acts. The actors responsible include ” XXXX XXXX ” previous agent and the current leasing agents. While I do not remember all of their names, I have documented proof of their racial animus and bias.
I moved in. They checked my credit twice, without asking the second time. There were issues with my health and I attempted to pay them on time, each time, but their partner in crime, XXXX and others, internet portal NEVER worked on payday. Even though their systems did not work, and this was due to their negligence and improper communication, they refused to take responsibility for their actions. I confronted the front desk staff multiple times, initially, they were ” kind ” and offered rebates but never offered to take full account for their errors. About a month or two before I moved out, I was told the company was sold to XXXX and that any continuing issues needed to be taken up with them.
This is categorically unfair as well because PREVIOUS PAYMENT arrangements were discussed with the previous leasing agents, but the current, and subsequent, refused to check their records and acknowledge their faults. Each time I went in the office they were ” doing audits ”, but they could never accurately describe the issues with my payment UNTIL, they ” decided ” to evict me. My payments, if the system would have worked, would have never been late, I had ONE noise violation, while others, often times were louder than me. I was promised when the lease was signed a quiet environment to conduct business and personal behavior, BUT, that never happened either.
ALL in ALL XXXX XXXX is trash. Their leasing department is racist. You can even check their website. It states they welcome ADA individuals and the like, but they treated me, my illness, my puppy assistant ( XXXX ) and I as if we were a problem, when if you ask anyone else in that community, we were nothing but nice. I don’t appreciate a false eviction on my record, nor do I appreciate a new debt collector attempting to recover debts that were the product of racism and negligence in the first place.
