I wonder how they did that!? I have s problem with Lindsey

I wonder how they did that!? I have s problem with Lindsey management too!JA: The Real Estate Lawyer will need to help you with this. Have you consulted a lawyer yet?Customer: No on the bottom right corner it says, "THE BALANCE DUE TO OWNER MUST BE PAID BEFORE DATE TO COLLECTION TO AVOID BEING SENT TO COLLECTIONS" I moved out for a variety of reasons. Number one is I really don't have the money to live there. I can't afford it anymore. And reason number two is because the place smells really bad. I think the vent to the bar is clogged and it leaves a bad odor when I run the vent to dry out the shower. Number three the place has a lot of creepy noises. It sounds like someone is sneaking around in the upstairs rafter's which is big enough for bonus bedrooms. Number four. I had to do a lot of cleaning and very minor repairs myself to make squeaky doors quieter and clean the crud from the shower doors and so that the kitchen cabinet doors don't snap. They obviously didn't change the locks on the door. The door frame is very soft and waffled and let's a lot of light in day time and cold air at night. When I moved in I said I wanted the $350 one. They said I wasn't eligible. The raised the price to $375. And when I got there, they raised it again to $385. I asked why, they said my credit score wasn't good enough. I checked my credit score and it was over 800. The toilet was running and also smelling so bad that I got very little use of the bedroom. He has a problem with his maintenance tech guy. I notice when he is answering the phone, everything is forgotten about and nothing gets fixed. But most of the time the manager will fix things. But I just don't have enough money to live there anymore.JA: OK. The Real Estate Lawyer will need to help you with this. Is there anything else important you think the Real Estate Lawyer should know?Customer: I live in Murfreesboro, Arkansas and it would be very difficult for me to get to Fayetteville AR. I moved here to go to the Crater of Diamonds State Park to get Diamonds. I don't see that I can do any other industry.JA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Real Estate Lawyer about your situation and connect you two.

There is not a nonsmoking clause in lease. We didn't know she smoked. Fire occurred on outside deck causing 28,000.00 in damage because of a discarded cigarette. We tried to add addendum to lease prohibiting smoking on premises jncluding deck. She refused to sign. Receiving phone calls from other unit owners as why we "allow" her to smoke on the deck. Trying to evict as we re afraid of another fire. Felt is was a reasonable addition to lease. Have contacted attorney. This is in NJ
