As somebody else mentioned. Before I signed the lease I told them that I want to live only for six months. I moved in in January and had to start my MBA studies in August. I explained my situation to the leasing office lady and she told me that it is OK in my case to move out earlier if I find someone else. Then I should get my $1200 deposit back. When I moved out the leasing office the lady told me that I will get the deposit in the mail. Well, I could not see my check anywere close to me. Later I contacted the Gelmarc main manager and he literally told me: "---- off!!!!!!!!!!! Go to court if you want to, I am not giving you money". I called leasing office lady to confirm what she said before I moved in "that I will get my deposit back" but instead she replied that she can not recall the details. They literally stole $1200 from me because they know if I go to court it will cost me much more.
One more thing. I usually do not talk about dead people, but in this case I am very upset about all deposit situation. Be careful: I think almost in every apartment somebody died. So it is very uncomfortable to live in there. Only after signing my lease I found out that in my apartment somebody PASSED AWAY JUST BEFORE I MOVED IN. Later I found out that GIRL WAS KILLED at the other apartment. and my neighbor had the same thing SOME TIME AGO SOMEBODY PAST AWAY IN HIS APARTMENT. It just MAKES THAT UNCOMFORTABLE FEELING WHEN IT GETS DARK AND YOU WANT TO SLEEP. be careful were you move in because you can be in one of those apartments.
