My dilemma is the property manager. He refused to do s job.

Customer Question

Good morning, my dilemma is the property manager. He refused to do his job. When I asked questions about the tenant who owes me money for electric bill, having a dog on the premises and not paying a late fee bill. These questions seem to upset the property manager. I thought the property manager who I hired would be in agreement with me. I asked the property manager can I get my money that the tenant owed me from the security deposit. I was told it did not warrant money being deducted from the security deposit. The property Manager said he will added it to tenant's bill. The last concern I have the property manager was I thought the tenant's were trashing the property. I suggest collectively we inspect the property. I was told I'm asking to much of him. He severed the contract and took the security deposit. I was sent a letter stating he was no longer my property manager. I also got text message "the tenant's have moved out. I visited my property recently and found the tenant's are still living in the home. I am lost for which way to resolve my rental problem..
