Customer Question
My landlord wants me to...
My landlord wants me to pay 650$ for the pest control treatments, he is also charging me 85$ every time for "not being ready". I have a video of him telling me that they changed the date the first time because they didn't have a technician that day and the other time he alleges that the whole apartment was suppose to be ready, but the instructions the sent don't say or specify that.

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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