Straight-up THIEF! Kept everyone's security deposit & basically disappeared off the face of the earth when we tried to contact her & her husband. Initiated process thru the courts, only to have them stonewall & Shalini claim she was not the landlord (despite her & husbands' names being EVERYWHERE on the lease, etc!). Meanwhile, they live in a nice home & have several other nice properties in the family out in the suburbs. We also fault the realty company Trimurti worked with, as they claimed to have "washed their hands of her", but had no problem handling our money & everything else until it came time to get our security deposit back! If there's no limit on making a claim, we'd love to go back after her & her husband.
Shalini is a scammer and by the worst landlord I have ever had business with. She does not care even a little about her resident's living conditions and does below the bare minimum to provide a quality of living necessary from a landlord. She took forever to help with any concerns but hounded for her monthly checks. I cannot stress enough to people how terrible of a landlord this woman is. Do whatever you possibly can to not rent from her.
Took her to court and got my security deposit back.She is a scumbag .She is like the people in India wbo try to scam Americans out of their tax returns every year. Sbe was caught lying on tbe stand at least 5x. She is dumb as a stick.Run from this person. Piece of shit!
You should never, I repeat NEVER rent from her and her husband. I've never met more disrespectful and awful people in my life! There was always an issue we needed to address with her. Workers came in without Them. They came in without notice. They even took some of my stuff and put it out for the trash!! Not respetful people I hope they go out of business ASAP
This landlord is the worst. She doesn't care about her tenants or even her building, all she cares about is her rent checks. Even the people she send out to fix our many problems dislike working with her. We had squirrels in our ceilings for months with only the very minimal done to fix it. They would reset the traps every 2 weeks even though we called to say the food and traps were set off after only hours of them being there. I had to threaten my landlord with a lawsuit before she sent an exterminator to get rid of the roaches we moved into. The apartment has almost no security features. She allows random people to enter our apartment very often and usually only a 12 hour notice, if any notice. They don't knock and wait for me to answer they just enter. There is mold from 4 different leaks and nothing other than paint was done to fix it. This is the worst place to live and cannot wait until my lease is up so I can get as far away as possible.
Shalini Barak and her company, Rental in Temple, are a nightmare. Her and her husband Rakesh are con artists. Shalini pretended to be a great landlord; she told me how she acts as a 'second mother' to her tenants, which made me feel safe moving into a new neighborhood. I never saw Shalini after this, and I could not get her to answer any text/emails unless it was something to do with $. Upon move in the house was filthy, the 'cleaner' that she hired was definitely her & her husband & a few wet wipes. The mice & cockroaches were AWFUL, and when asked to do something about it, she acted as though it was not her problem even though in the lease it says that she was supposed to give us the house 'pest free'. Her husband entered our apartment without telling us multiple times, and she claimed the email just got lost somehow. She is also taking a big chunk of our deposit even thought we left the apartment MUCH cleaner than when we moved in, and have the pics to prove it.
Though the house i'm staying in isn't that bad, shalini is just not a nice person. she only answers when it's about money. when i told her there was a bug infestation she never answered me! It is irritating because she acted so sweet then showed her true colors when we signed the lease. Like I said the place isn't bad, but she just doesn't deserve business for her nasty attitude
