My family consulted a Camelot Property Management for taking a house for rent. We had all talks regarding the security deposit and lease period. I paid both the security deposit and rent per month as per the agreement. The rent was higher for such a bad conditioned home. Still, I agree to the terms and conditions of the company.
When I shifted in this house, I was unhappy with the poor quality facilities of the house. The house was very dirty and untidy. There were leakages in the house from different parts of the wall. Even the bathroom and toilet were in worst conditions. The sink in the bathroom was not working. After paying such a huge amount for this house, we didn’t get any facilities for throwing our garbage.
There were cracks all over the walls and ceilings of the house. Even the glass of the windows were broken and no one cared at least to fix them. I made a complain to Camelot Property Management about these problems. They didn’t give any solution to these problems. The women working there and the manager just listened our problems and listed in their work schedule.
I was expecting a good response from them after paying large sum for this house. But, my expectations went in vein. They told me that the owner of this house didn’t take any efforts to repair this house. The women just gave me an apology stating that the company is not responsible for these problems.
After paying both large sum of security deposit and rent, I expected a good home with adequate facilities. The expenses were incurred by me on purchasing a new carpet, spent heavily on doing the paint work and many more. The A.C filters and doors were cleaned after paying a large sum in addition to the above charges.
Once our ceiling was broken and it fell down due to numerous cracks. I called several times the persons of the company but all what they did was to make me fool by giving me false excuses.
I spent 17 months in this house. I had a room mate staying with me too. When my room mate was about to leave this home and shift to a new one, the manager made the situations even worse. I and my room mate were staying in this house for one year at lease. We were paying the rents on monthly basis.
Once, we got late in payment of rent by one week. The manager of the Camelot Property Management company falsely complained to the rental company that we are willing to pay the rent of one month. The real intention of the manager was to take again the new security deposit and rent. We paid once month rent after one week. The manager and other persons of this property management company are most fraudulent ones.
They gave our wrong report to the rental company. The report was rejected by the other company and we were given one month to shift to a new place. It was better than the earlier one.
Camelot Property Management company takes all fake charges in the name of security deposit and rents. Take care while dealing with such fraudulent management companies!!
