Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.

.

I need a little more of the back story here to figure out what is going on...

.

You have a property management company that does what? manages your rental property? or your home?

.

What does this mean " they don't respond to our complaints from the pool company "? You are getting complaints from a pool company? or you are complaining about a pool company?

.

Who locked up your pool pump and broke the gate lock? the property manager or the pool company?

.

.

thanks

Barrister

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.
