I live at Club Lake Apartments in Coral Springs Florida

Customer Question
Good morning, I live...

Good morning, I live at Club Lake Apartments in Coral Springs Florida (Olen Living)

Lawyer's Assistant: What are the terms of the lease? Any issues related to maintenance or upkeep?

The poor management and maintenance kept us without AC for two weeks before Hurricane Irma. They failed to hire specialized company to determine program and in the mean time my son's eczema got bad.

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

26 days after the repairs were not finished and they dont want to prorate my rent payment deducting the time that I actually had to leave the apartment because it was unsanitary.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state the property is in?

I was just charged $42 by your company without authorization so this is not starting good. My God is there anyone honest left in this world.

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.

Story... My girlfriend and I moved into an apartment on
My girlfriend and I moved into an apartment on December 28, 2017 and moved out March 31, 2018 as to transfer to a bigger apartment. While waiting for the return of the security deposit from the past apt, the Leasing Manager calls and emails me saying there is a balance the from the prior apt. According to the Leasing Manager, it is standard that property charge a cleaning fee, repaints, and has a carpet cleaning regardless of the state of the apt. The property does it every time a resident moves. Additionally, we were charged rent for April 1st & 2nd because we could not turn the keys in until Monday morning (April 2nd) due to no one being in the office (Easter Holiday). As you are reading this, it is of course safe to assume that we would like a legal opinion on the matter. This is especially so as we live in another apt on the property and really prefer not to deal with this again when we have a departure from the new apt. … read more
