Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Are you a robot or a live person? My husband, myself and now
my husband, myself and now 4 children have rented a 2nd floor unit in Salem for almost 2 years in October and since the second month we have had a kitchen cabinet fall on to my son, heating vent fall out of ceiling onto my husbands head and drew blood, squirrels running rampid upstairs and are now chewing and scratching at the heating vents to get into our house, Refuses to test for lead and we now have a 11 month old, appliances break, sinks backed up, HVAC came out to check out a few things and we showed him that we cannot put the furnace door on because then the heat will shut off so we have to live with open flames which 1-2 days in the winter we slept with no heat and froze. Also the HVAC guy said he was going to tell the owner/Mgt Co that this needed to be fixed ASAP and we never saw him again. there were holes in the floors from the old radiators which were never covered up that my daughter caught her foot in and almost cut it because there was a metal pipe still in there, there is so much more to this and we need an attorney to help us. We did get the Board of Health involved but it seems as though the owner of our home and Atlantic Coast Homes has alot of people in his back pocket. We do everything in text and we have asked SEVERAL times to test for lead because we have an 11 month old and he refuses to do it. We do not have the $7000 to move and my husband also lost his second income because they made up get rid of his trailor. We met with attorneys last month and we were told we actually had a huge case and would get back up to 4 times the amount we paid so we were happy we found someone to help us because we literally have no where to go if we get evicted. The attorney said that he will bring all our info to his bosses and get back to us. A few hours later after we left attorneys office we got a call from our landlord which was strange because we never got a call from him so we avoided the call and the next day the attorney called me and said they were unable to work with us ;) We went from not being scared and nervous to now scared and nervous. My husband had a FANTASTIC job that paid very well and We have paid every month and yes sometimes we were late but they never said anything about it because they didnt go to the bank until the 10th so they always had it. But now that we have the Board of Health involved things are getting very uncomfortable and now they turned the first floor which has always been rented to people for 6 months or more they turned into an AirBnb. We need help the way we have had to live for a while now is uncalled for and this morning i got a nasty text from the rental agent whom i have ALWAYS had a great relationship with because we are very respectful people. But now for the first time in my life i feel helpless with 4 children. Can someone please call us and either guide us or work with us. I apologize but we do not have money because we are now both not working and had to recently get on food stamps which we tried so hard not to do. Thank you kindly … read more
