Rented a property from Real Estate Management Specialists from May 2018 to May of 2019. They notified us 3 weeks before our lease was up that they were raising the rent which gave us minimal time to find a new place.
A couple days before we were to officially be out of the property we called and let them know that people were watching move and they should come and remove the hot water tank and furnace.
They removed the items and took pictures of the property and posted them on their site with some of our belongings still in the home.
When we returned the keys we provided then with a forwarding address for our security deposit which was $1795.
Two days after we completely moved out and returned the keys they put a for lease sign out front.
By mid May we still had not received our security deposit we emailed and called several times.
By mid June we went to their office to inquire about deposit and they said it we should have it by Thursday.
We finally received a check on July 1st after several calls, emails, and the threat of legal action only for them to take $775 for furniture they claimed they had to move, changing the locks, cutting the grass, and they charged us $30 for stopping payment on a check that we never received.
We provided them pictures showing that the property was completely empty with time stamp and the date twice and also asked for them to provide is with their pictures so that we could compare the dates and times.
We never received their photos and they are ignoring our calls and emails.
This property management company is completely unprofessional, and I urge anyone thinking about renting from them to make another decision.
