Do Not Rent From This Landlord

Posted 3 years ago

I rented an apartment from Magarick from 2017 to 2019. There was no problem with the unit until I moved out. That was when Magarick took $120 from my security deposit for what I believe were largely unjustifiable reasons. (You can see the photos attached here for yourself.) As you'll see in the first two pictures, I left the apartment in clean condition. Magarick tried to deduct money for a stain in the apartment that was there when I first moved in, for a "dirty" toilet that was in fact clean (third photo), and, most absurdly, for having water marks in the sink (fourth photo). I had forgotten to clean the oven — which, admittedly, was dirty — and so trying to reach a compromise, I offered to pay a $50 or even $60 deduction for this, which I felt was reasonable. Magarick refused, and continued to claim that the sink and toilet were grounds for a higher deduction. I've accepted that I'm not getting the money back, but I only wish I hadn't been paying rent to Magarick for the past two years. There are plenty of other landlords in Philadelphia with fair business practices. If you're in the market for an apartment, I would recommend you find one of them.
