Customer Question
Today I was cussed...

Today I was cussed out by a neighbor and called many names that were very mean. I caught the manager's name between the name calling and I have had meetings were I caught her disrespecting me around tentents and also other employees. I asked her to stop disrespecting me infront of other tenants especially here because this is a SRO. It is federally funded, I thought that this would be a pit stop but it seems to become a situation which is now out of control because she has talked about me to regional managment

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

California

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

Yearly, but no before this property management came in they reorganized and remodeled it. They kept renting to men though.

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

Men live in almost every unit.

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.
