Terrible landlord

Posted 3 years ago

I have rented two houses from WMP (mistake). My roommate and I moved out of our first house after two years early. We had consistent issues with the heat not working throughout our lease, which they refused to fix until the end of winter. There were multiple times where we had to sleep in the house, with no insulation, on 10degree nights. He didn’t consider this an emergency and told us to “go buy space heaters.” Our lease was up in July, but we both moved out in May. We had no issue paying the rent until our lease was up. We had a consistent mold issue in the house throughout the lease. They came thru to do a “final walk through” in June (a whole month after we both had moved out). They attempted to not return our security deposit because they were going to have to have their cleaning lady come through because we left the place dusty and moldy. No one had been at the house for an entire month, obviously dust was going to accumulate. They also wanted to charge us for new drip pans for the stove, which were already dirty when we moved in. My roommate volunteered to go back to the house to clean. When she got there, the new tenant had already moved in!!! WE WERE STILL PAYING RENT. it was not until she threatened to call the police that they offered to give our money back. Fast forward a month. I move into my new house with them. It is in deplorable condition, and was not the apartment that I signed on to lease. The paint was a mess, the blinds were broken and stained from someone smoking in the house, the drip pans were trashed (what I thought was hysterical), there was still stuff in the cabinets from the previous tenant, and the shower was filthy. After I had already cleaned the place myself top to bottom, they told me they would send their cleaning lady over. Their maintenance guys are pretty good, but if they have to have another company come in to fix something they will charge you.

Let me keep it short and simple and say..... DO NOT RENT FROM THIS MAN! He will do whatever he can to nickel and dime you upon move out. He and his staff are extremely RUDE! Our house was INFESTED WITH TERMITES! I've never had a bad living experience anywhere other than with WMP. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND TIME.

Absolutely terrible place to live/worst landlord/charges you for EVERYTHING you cannot control... read on...

Posted 3 years ago

Wayne Michael Properties is the absolute worst to live for. After living in college housing for 3 years prior to this residency, I will never ever recommend someone like this landlords company to anyone... We had multiple issues starting at the very beginning. Things started when a service dog was not going to be allowed to live in the house even though there was a doctor note from the doctor stating that I had to have the service animal. Then throughout the year he would complain about everything.... without giving us anytime to even acknowledge what he was referring to. We have termites throughout the house and the exterminator came after we complained multiple times and they only inspected one room. The house was run down and not how we expected it to be especially after how much we each paid. Then we offered to fix some of the damages that the dogs had done... the landlord stated that we did not need to fix these things and that he would... just so he COULD CHARGE US FOR HIS "LABOR". We were then charged for extremely unnecessary things that we offered to pay for and fix on our own prior to moving out. Now, we are stuck with this insane bill that has exceeded our security deposits' combined which is just absurd. All in all, I do NOT recommend renting from this property team. The owner is very rude to everyone including parents, doesn't listen to what you have to say, and does not keep employees' for over a couple months (i am guessing for his actions and words). The houses that he rents to young college students' are in terrible condition then in the end he tries to charge you for things so he can make the houses a little better each year PLUS pocket some money. It is not worth it.

Worst person to rent from

Posted 5 years ago

This company is absolutely awful to work with, the actual owner Wayne Michael is BEYOND rude. When arriving at the house, there was pungent smell in the fridge and when we asked the landlord and wayne michael to come fix the smell, he blamed it on my roommates and I and said the smell could not be the fault of the property because his cleaning service lady does an amazing job. We asked him to change the filter on the fridge because the smell would not go away and was even tasting the scent in our ice and he refused and said its not his problem. When our washer broke it took over a week to fix and the times and dates of when the issue was going to be fixed was not accurate at all and there was no notice after the maintenance guy left when he was ever going to come back. Now our house was left with a horrid smelling fridge with ice not being able to be used as well as a broken washer for who knows how long it will be broken. The camera's Wayne michael claims to put on their properties for safety ARE NOT REAL! They dont even have camera's installed, they just have fake signs. I was so unhappy with this company that i broke my lease and got a replacement, I had already paid 5 months in advance on rent and my rent check for the overdraft was always late and caused me to be late on my bills because the person in charge didnt mail them on time. Overall the people working with wayne michael and wayne michael himself are absolutely rude and terrible people to work with, They are egotistical and belittle you and claim almost every problem that arises is the fault of the tenants. Thank goodness i left that house, i don't want to even imagine what they will charge on damages at the end of the lease. Do not ever rent with this company.

Angriest landlord ever

Posted 5 years ago

Terrible neighborhoods he leases from. Charged us $800 for smoking in house even though we did not. He and his people cannot spell (I'm serious) so they put in all of our emails wrong in their system and ended up showing up to our house without any warning. He will also come snooping around just because, very disconcerting. Don't rent from him.
