Renters beware

Posted 3 years ago

RENTERS BEWARE I rented a 4 bedroom apartment from Mr. William Donaldson in February 2016 located on 108 Cooke St in Waterbury CT. Let me list all the things you need to know before you rent from DRW Properties. 1.You will never meet Mr. Donaldson in person he does everything through his representative Juan who is very racist towards black people he takes his time to come address any issues whenever you put in a maintenance complaint and when he does come he does a half done job. 2. There’s a $190 late fee. 3. I put in numerous complaints about the other tenants trash and how it was creating insect problems and instead of them getting a professional exterminator Juan comes with outdoor bug spray that’s made to kill outdoor insects so the infestation only got worst. 4. Mr. Donaldson will not let you know he’s not going to renew your lease he goes and put your name in the court system for lapses of lease. I paid Mr. Donaldson my rent money on January 30, 2019 for February 2019 rent I was in email communication with Mr. Donaldson on February 4,2019 where he said moving forward let’s work together to get the house exterminated because Juan was suppose to exterminate my apartment that weekend and never came to do my apartment but he did the Caucasian and Latino apartment, but why the next day Mr. Donaldson filed lapse of lease eviction papers with the court on February 5, 2019 and my lease wasn’t up until February 11, 2019 I received a eviction notice on February 8, 2019 now my name is in the housing court system when Mr. Donaldson could have just informed me he wasn’t going to renew my lease. So I’m trying to move and find a new place but every where I look no one wants somebody with housing court issue. We finally go to court and Mr. Donaldson couldn’t tell me why he took me to court instead of just telling me he didn’t want to renew my lease another insult he tried to act like he wasn’t hisself at court like if after 3years of paying my money that I would research you. I was granted a few months to find another place but the damage was already done. I fought in court 2times to get my name out of court and due to a loop hole that these crooked landlords know my name is still in the housing system due to no fault of my own. So know I’m in the last month of my stipulation and I can’t afford to leave and pay so I informed Mr. Donaldson and asked since you have 2 months of security with interest just take it from there he said no with went back to court I explained that to the judge and the judge just said leave. So the day comes for me to leave and I’m packing and moving my stuff Juan text me talking about where’s the key I texted back tell the landlord to come get it now the landlord text me threatening me I told him to do what you got to do. So I leave to move some things come back they changed the locks with a lot of my belongings still inside the place. I called Juan and Mr. Donaldson for my things and got no reply. So I filed a police report and they were to busy to meet with me to get my belongings. So they stole my belongings and guess what he also keep my 2 month security. I filed another paper to get my name out of court and I keep getting denied. All this drama for what? I paid my rent I wasn’t going to break my lease I did everything by the book. So my fight isn’t over see you in court again real soon.
