Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Can you call me? I'm in North Carolina. No see my apartment
No see my apartment flooded Jan 12th because my water heater busted while I was at work. It destroyed my apartment and my neighbors apartment that lived below me. Well the whole time my landlord had me under the impression that they was going to fix the floors and walls that was damaged then I could move back in. Well 2 weeks ago I get am email from my landlord Secretary saying that they've decided not to renew my lease and now I have to be out the apartment by Feb 28th. I've been living there since 2011 I've never been late on my rent nor have I been a bad tenant. And keep in mind that my apartment still has no floors and I've been HOMELESS since Jan 12th. I had to throw away alot of things that was on my floor that got destroyed. This just don't seem fair that all of sudden they're not going to renew the lease. … read more
