Customer Question
I am an owner in...
I am an owner in a large complex which is run by a property management company.
The general manager of the property is also a partner in the management company, is this a conflict of interest? She is very unpleasant and has made threats to other tenants who do not own their units. She has even sent eviction letters to them. I am trying to find out if we have legal recourse since she is " general manager" but has a vested interest in her company maintaining their management of the property. Thank you

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.
