Due to the anonymity of the review, we cannot be certain of the reviewer. However, given the date, language used and issues noted, we believe this reviewer is a disgruntled former Tenant. This Tenant left the building with a minor breach of the lease and was very difficult to deal with in many negotiations. He often misrepresented the truth and became a nuisance. In fact, he toured the unit he ended up staying in before he took it and was quite happy with the price, condition, and amenities at the time he rented. Now that he has had trouble with the Landlord, everything is a problem. Indicating that the building is poorly light is without merit as our lighting meets local building codes. This Tenant is unaware that the Downtown Denver area is riddled with cockroaches. These roaches enter virtually every downtown building thru storm drains and we have a monthly service that combats the problem rather well. The main evidence that we have seen is in the basement area where residents use a common laundry facility.
His comment that the bathrooms were filthy is without merit as we received no complaints as such and take great pride in cleaning the units before renting them. His comment about the Lease being binding is rather amusing given that is what Leases do for both the Landlord and the Tenant. For every 50 Tenants that come thru our building, only 1 or 2 are ever dealt with on a breach of the Lease but we take pride in maintaining conformity among all residents and clauses in the Lease are meant to protect everyones enjoyment of the premises. We welcome prospects to evaluate the competition in the Downtown Denver area and we believe our value is among the highest available. It is unfortunate that “sour grapes” seem to be the order of the day when former Tenants or Employees become disgruntled. We will maintain our professional standard and will at all times try to be accountable for weaknesses in our management or in our building facility.
