About a year ago, the managers attempted to enforce a prior rental agreement I had with them. This rental agreement was already terminated at the time they threatened me with it.
A little over a year ago I complained to them about thudding and crashing noises coming from the people over me and I made a request to move to a different unit because of it. A few weeks later, I received a notice on my door from management threatening me with eviction due to the disturbance that was coming from the unit above me. In response to this notice, my attorney wrote a letter to management telling them that it was from the people above me. In response to my attorney's letter, management left a letter on my door referencing a complaint against me from the resident below me that they had received about two years previously under the prior lease agreement. So my attorney wrote a second letter to the managers explaining that the complaint against me from two years ago occurred under a different rental agreement that was now over and was therefore inadmissible in court and again told them to deal with the people over the top of me. Neither I nor my attorney received any further communication from the managers in regard to this matter.
Management should have an understanding of rental agreements, such as when they begin and end. These people do not. No one should be caused undue stress from being threatened with something that is inadmissible in court.
On another occasion last summer I called the office to report a barking dog in the building next to mine. This dog was frequently left on its owner s balcony to bark incessantly hour and hour, often well after midnight. The manager told me that I had to find out which unit it was in in order for her to do anything about it. I do not think it should be my responsibility to search in another building to find the source of a disturbance; investigating complaints is management s job. A few weeks later I heard the dog barking in the afternoon; I called the manager who said she was busy and refused to come down or send anyone else down to investigate it. Problem was finally addressed several months later when another tenant complained about it.
Management seems to only enforce certain rules with certain tenants, and they only listen to certain people. The complaints they do enforce they take at face value without doing any investigation. This results in valid complaints not being addressed and innocent parties being falsely accused of things they haven t done.
Management is harsh, sloppy, and vindictive. I have lived in other apartments and I have never been treated in the manner in which I have been treated while living here. Prior to coming to Mt. Meadows I never had to hire an attorney to protect my rights as a tenant. I currently have a law firm on retainer to protect my interests and I will have them on retainer until I move out.
Either 1) Don't move here 2) Move here only if you can afford legal representation, or 3) Move here only after Adolph & Eva are gone (hopefully very soon).
