Experienced a break in in the apartment while on vacation. Landlord knew about it the whole time, but did not notify me or my roommates. When we texted him asking where the TV went he did not respond, when we saw his assistant changing the locks she would not explain why she was changing them. Did not find out I had been a victim of a break in until somebody from a neighboring apartment notified us that all her TV's had been stolen from a robbery.
Steve is a great landlord. Very responsive and kind. Honestly, he can come off a little creepy sometimes but I've never had any bad feelings about him. I will be heading into my third year with him at a different property which he went out of his way to help me secure.
Steve sucks. I already graduated, and haven't lived in the house I rented from Steve for over a year - but I am still mad. My house was dirty upon arrival, to which Steve said "well it depends on your definition of clean" - But the carpet made my feet turn black..... On more than one occasion creepy Steve let himself into my house of all girls unannounced. Once it was Saturday morning before 9 am. We were 20 year old girls sleeping.... so creepy. This occurred until our parents got involved. Steve also has a bitchy wife (maybe that is why is he so sucky). But seriously, his wife once harassed me saying I did not pay my rent, which I definitely paid... After she repeatedly called me screaming, and was hung up on, she finally learned to listen and I sent her proof I had paid my rent. She apologized and said another girl in one of their other properties had the same first name as me..... This happened on more than one occasion. She did the same with my roommate and sent an email out to all my housemates trying to embarrass the girl, by saying she was not paying her rent and we the housemates were now responsible. The girl was paying her rent, but even if she wasn't it was totally inappropriate of Steve's wife to send the email she sent. Steve's wife even tried to apologize for that one by baking cookies... we ate the cookies, but apology not accepted. Moral of the story, do not rent from stupid Steve the slumlord. Pay a little more and live somewhere nice, without a creepy landlord. Also my westside house was broken into 3 times, most likely by heroin addicts. Not Steve's fault for once, but thought I would mention it.
