We were robbed on Friday and again last night. Today, I reported the robery of my bicycle
to the manager of the apratments at Galeria Palms in Tempe, AZ. She could not hear me over the phone and I was afraid to leave the apratment unattended, so I asked her to come to my apratment. She could not hear me, so I raised my voice and said please come down because of this.
She came and weedblowers (two of them) were blowing weeds outside. She said she could not be in my apartment because she is allergic to cats. We tried to talk on the patio, but it was extremely noisy. I talked over the noise. She had a witness. She claimed I was yelling AT her. I asked her to close the gate during the day because the robberies (and many home robberies) happen duirng the day. She refused. By the way, the police asked to to talk with our neighbors to find out if anyone saw anything. One reported a very similar break in. She claimed that a friend had also had a robbery in the same building.
I asked her if there was security wired in the apartments. SHe said no.
My son and his girl friend arrived. They could not hear me talking as they walked within 6 feet of the patio.
The manager then said that she also did not have any security people on the grounds during the day. She is on a task force with Tempe police. She is a new manager. She said she did not have to have a safe environment and did not need to close the gate nor have security during the day.
I insulted her by saying,Use your brain to have security when the robberies occur. She got mad and left.
She sent me an official looking letter via an employee
of the apratment complex. It says:
TEN (10) days notice of intent to terminate rental agreement for breach of lease
and/or the Arizona Residential Landlord and tenant act. My breach is listed a Non-compliance of lease agreeement by interfering with the operation of a business and disturbing the peace.
It has more clauses about requiring more fees and the total amount of rent even if I comply and leave. I just paid the rent for March today before the letter.
Do I have to move out in ten days?
I had already told them that I was moving back to Ohio May 29.
I think I need an attorney. There are other clauses.
I am on Social Security, since I am 65.
