Slum Lord AVOID AT ALL COSTS

Posted 4 years ago

Don’t rent from her. Her building is infested with rodents and roaches. The first few months I lived there I saw at least 4 mice a day. The problem didn’t stop until I had to buy products to keep them out. She was too cheap to hire an exterminator so she just had her husband throw traps everywhere. Disgusting. Also the hot water and heat never worked. She claimed it’s some eco friendly way of saving water. Really she was being cheap. In order to get hot water, you had to turn the thermostat to be higher than the current temperature. This was a problem in the summer when temps were 90 or higher. The thermostat tops at 90 so I couldn’t take a shower on the hot days. Or when the heat is on in the winter or not (top floor was warm from other apts below) I couldn’t take a shower then either. She constantly pestered me and attempted to threaten me when I brought any issue to her, especially when I wasn’t satisfied with her quick, imefficient fixes. Rent includes WiFi to be shared with all 3 apts. Safe to say was the slowest, if I ever could get connected. She’s currently withholding my security deposit and attempting to make up damages. I knew she would do this so I have taken detailed photos of every where in the place so she can’t make anything up. If she doesn’t send my security deposit this week. I will take her to court for double it.
