Villa Oaks Apartments SunnyvaleCA 94086.

Orvick Property Management Sunnyvale California. I am desperate need of help. I have lived in same complex unit at Villa Oaks Apartments in Sunnyvale for 8 years. No hot water for 12 months in bathroom sink. For the last 2 years the unit needs repairs. I have no hot water in my bathroom sink and the bath tub always day and night leaks a lot of wasted water. The apartment has never been renovated since I moved 8 years ago. They recently fired the on site manager and have no one over seeing tenants needs. I recently got a notice of an area manager reaching out to help. I informed her of issues and she answered that the office lost or mis placed my house key. I told them this was an incident for them to replace my house unit key locks and they have failed. It has been a struggle to have other tenants follow lease rules. People from upstairs at 1 am doing laundry and being very distruptive. I need help. Every year they increase rent but nothing is being done to have a safe and better living condition. I have emailed Orvick Property Management and have not been answered.

Thank you

This landlord is a nightmare!! Run! Landlord owns several properties in two states, has been sued over 50 times in two states and four counties which three of the four counties are in California. Has over 30 some small claim cases filed against this landlord in San Diego super court house alone. Several harassment orders filed against this Landlord

Deborah Schowalter, San Diego, CA

in several counties by previous tenants and neighbors. Restraining orders filed against this land lord by her neighbors and previous tenants.  What more do you need to know, just do your home work and you will know everything you need to conclude to not rent from this landlord.

 

1343 W 40th pl, Los Angeles CA 90036 + Thomas Merino

There are three units on the lot however the owner has never contacted the city of Los Angeles to register the additional lot units even though they are being rented to people as studio apartments.

1343 w 40th place
Los Angeles, Ca

The main house has no heat, even though when I moved in I was told the furnace was in good working order later I was told that if I wish to remain in the unit I would have to agree to there being no heat provided by the landlord. I am worried about the state of the building as the longer I’ve lived here the more apparent it has become but the landlord has not taken any steps to keep the property up to code. I know that renting multiunit properties in Los Angeles a landlord is required of the code inspection every certain number of years but this landlord has never once had a code inspection for this unit or any of the units their own on this property.

The electrical work is obviously been done by the homeowner and not a licensed electrician. I am also unhappy about the fact that I’ve had to go the entire winter without any heat in the common areas making it impossible for me to utilize the kitchen. It was very cold this winter and some nights was too cold to sleep in my rooms due to the fact that I am unable to run the heater at full power without knocking out the electricity to my rooms.

Th mother tenants are trying to make me move out by threatening my service animal. Saying things like maybe they will just let her out of the house and see what happens. I have also had them threaten to throw away my belonging in the common area. I am called names like a fat bitch and told I smell. They say nobody likes me and that because I complain the landlord is going to evict me. I have had one roommate spend 20 minutes screaming into my room calling me names.

The landlord is very interested in the fact that I takes baths. The other roommate says it isn’t fair and that i shouldn’t be allowed to bathe? Then she calls me crazy. I am worried that she is going to attack me, or my service animal, but the landlord says that cause the other tenants (who I have on film saying they don’t like me and want me to move out) say she has never yelled at me. Even though I have cell phone video of her doing it. I need help.

142 Rankin St.

Stove and Refrigerator are both 24 years old and do not work. Landlord will not repair or replace! We were over run with mice for 4 months, landlord FINALLY had the mice issue resolved. What a disgusting nightmare we went through for FOUR months!!! Our landlord deals with our issues by simply ignoring our phone calls and emails. We even mailed him letters through the United States Post Office. We still had no response.

I am so glad I am moving out of this place. I am required to pay cash only Chase Hayes [landlord] never issues receipts. I live in a room with four other guys me included. Utilities are “equally” shared even though this month everyone had to pay $28.00 for water and only Steve (another tenant) pays $20. Chase though he says he has a degree in psychology has the worse judge of character I know and this conjecture was empirically manifested when he let an incorrigible thug name Tony in the house for approximately a week and a half without paying rent nor putting a deposit down because he “promised” to pay such in a few days, however such the promise never materialize yet all of us had to “equally” subsidize the utilities for him since he did not have any funds whatsoever to compensate. Now this guy Tony was a violent person that he wanted to fight everyone and threaten everyone, even me to the point I had to purchase mace spray to feel safe in my own room!! I had to tell Chase either you kick him out or the cops will be summoned to remove this low life. After a lengthy debate he finally conceded. I am getting kicked out for not paying $6.90 for carpet cleaning for the living room and cleaning the landlord’s room but OUR ROOM WAS EXCLUDED!! So in essence any “pet project” he wants to do we all have to subsidize such even though it was not explicitly stated in the renter’s contract. He claims I broken a towel rack when 5 people use the bathroom yet want to siphon my $250 deposit without any proof I did it and not someone else. So potential tenants beware Chase may price gauge your deposit as a ploy to give you the least amount back possible. He is very belligerent person who I feels he is right by default. In the contract it states that part of the utilities is cleaning supplies for the KITCHEN not for anything else!! He is very exploitative not only to me but everyone else that is precisely why he wants younger people because they are vulnerable via their ignorance of the tenant’s rights laws. I know the cost is cheap but it is not worth it. One of the roommates wet his bed (30 yrs. old), 3 of them have loud drunken parties till 4am in the morning so good luck getting a good night sleep. They will touch your feet and sexually harass you. But those people are not getting kicked out just me for not paying $6.90 carpet cleaning service because it was against the contract and I am not a sucker that will be exploited (He has a weird sense of “justice”). Do not go to this house even as a last resort. I am posting this to warn people so they do not suffer the same mistake that I unfortunately made. Chase Haynes threatened to lock me out of the house, take away my laptop computer and disregard 30 day notice and still making me pay rent on the first!! HE THREATENED ME AND GOT INTO MY FACE LIKE A GANGSTER THUG. DO NOT GO TO THIS HOUSE EVEN THE SAN DIEGO POLICE OFFICER WISHED TO WARN ME IN HINDSIGHT NOT TO GO TO CHASE HAYES HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!!! HE THINKS HE IS ABOVE THE LAW LIKE A SLUMLORD!!!!! THE POLICE KNOWS CHASE HAYES VERY WELL AND MEANS NO GOOD!!! TODAY HE JUST DID A DEATH THREAT AGAINST ME. HE EVICT ME THIS MARCH 12, 2013 SO MY 30 DAY NOTICE ENDS WHEN I AM TO LEAVE IS THIS APRIL 10, 2013. YET HE WANTS ME TO LEAVE BY MARCH 31, 2013. HE TREATENED TO CALL HIS SON TO “CLEAN” ME AND GET RID OF ME IF I STAY BEYOND MARCH 31, YOU ARE IN DIRE DANGER BY RENTING FROM THIS THUG MY LIFE IS IN DANGER. I moved out March 29, 2013 and according to the law once the tenant vacates the house the landlord must give your security deposit within 21 days. My security deposit should have been refunded on April 19, 2013 it is April 28, 2013 and now he is making false conspiring accusations that I broke his computer which is completely fictitious. THIS LANDORD WILL STEAL AND SWINDLE YOUR DEPOSIT. DO NOT GO TO THIS HOUSE UNLESS YOU WANT TO THROW AWAY $275 DOLLARS OF YOUR DEPOSIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

Starla Gload

SECURITY DEPOSIT BEING WITHHELD DUE TO FALSE PERSONAL ACCUSATIONS, REFUSES TO RETURN DEPOSIT AFTER 10 MONTHS AND 3 APPEARANCES IN SMALL CLAIMS COURT! Beware of the following individuals, they are con-artists posing as fraudulent property owners who rent homes in the San Diego College Area to young college students. Starla Gload also goes by the alias Starla Lynn Godek or Starla Godek. Her business relations are illegal and she withholds security deposits from undeserving tenants. I have personally taken Starla to small claims court 3 times over a judgement that was decided three times in my favor. She will not release the judgment amount she owes me, which is less than $900.00 and is playing games with the Superior court in order to make me lose interest in the money I am still owed 10 months after moving out of her property. Moreover, in my last small claims court judgment decision, it was formally made known to the court that I was paying rent to a minor for the two year term I rented from Starla (Joseph Gload is Starla Gloads SON) — yet she is still playing games and challenging the judgment time after time to avoid paying me my deposit back. Don’t get involved with this woman or any of her affiliates: Milton Dasilva, Matthew Favaing, Rosalinda Godek, Samuel Longnecker, Christopher Gload/Godek just to name a few. This woman and her affiliates own over 20 homes near San Diego State University and they take advantage of young, first time renters by stealing their deposits for no reason at all.  

4353 Toland Way, Apt. 14-Yousef Yazdinian

Paid deposit and sink fell on my foot (off of the wall), no ventalation in upstairs bathroom, no seal around toilet (upstairs bathroom)-causing leaks through the downstairs ceiling. I’m a disabled veteran and live on a fixed income. Also, paint was never completed either. Landlord has given me death threats and constant harassment, he will not answer my calls. There is also a leak in our gas heater, which I’ve requested to be fixed, but to no adue. The landlord Yousef Yazdinian, violate CA \\penal code 483, by which he illegally changed my locks, boarded my windows, and also put a boot on my door. I’m missng around 4,000 dollars in cut my stove valve off and my hot water heater as well. My psych meds were inside and I had to be hospitalized for six days in the West LA VA hospital.Please help me and thanks for your concern on this matter.

Sincerely,

681 S. Marengo Avenue, #5, Pasadena, CA 91106; Landlord: Richard H. Morrison

Move-in date: June 6, 2008
Move-out date: April 14, 2012

Apartment was left in average wear and tear condition when I moved out. Apartment was not extraordinarily dirty nor mistreated. (Note: the removal of a chin-up bar in the hallway left two small holes in opposing walls when it was taken down. This aside, there were no other visible holes, mars, damage, etc. to walls nor any other surface or area of apartment.)

Backed-up kitchen plumbing and severe water heater issues occurred in 2008 which caused a bubbling of the paint in the kitchen area. This was beyond tenant control. Water was not permitted to remain standing after backup and flooding occurred. Water heater was shortly thereafter seen to and no future water heater incidents occurred however plumbing issues persisted throughout tenancy – though never to the detriment of walls, paint, plaster, etc.

Nothing was left behind, so no ‘haul-away’ fees should have been assessed. Security gates did not work for three of the over four years I lived at apartment and repairs were never attempted. I fixed overhead kitchen light fixture at a personal cost of $80.

Landlord has, by way of ignoring and refusing to respond to phone call and in-person requests, refused to return the $1400 security deposit Norman Chin and I gave him when we moved in on June 6, 2008. He has also refused to provide a breakdown of monies retained (if any) for preparing unit for next tenant (who is now residing in my former apartment.)

By law, I should not be charged for new paint or carpeting. (After 3 years, tenant cannot be charged for new paint; after 2 years, tenant cannot be charged for new carpeting. Note: carpeting was worn and showed areas of patching and previous repairs when we moved in.)

I plan to follow up my other efforts with a written request to Mr. Morrison, via Certified Mail, for the return of my security deposit, which, by California law, must be responded to within 14 days.

Landlord: Richard H. Morrison / 626.793.0051
Yang Properties
Box 193
115 W. California Blvd.
Pasadena, CA 91105

Mr. Morrison’s home address:
‘The Farm’
301 Pleasant Street, #6
Pasadena, CA 91101

Mr. Morrison lives with his wife, Kim, who is an attorney, though it is unknown whether she currently practices law.

Please note: on the evening of Wednesday, July 11, 2012, I was attempting to gather information on the Keller, Klein, et.al. website (for retrieving one’s security deposit at a fee of 15% of the returned security deposit amount, payable to Keller, Klein, et.al.) and accidentally pressed the ‘Enter’ key, thereby inadvertently sending an ‘official’ request to your firm to assist me with retrieving said now very [illegally] late security deposit refund.

While I do wish to take advantage of your assistance with reporting this landlord, *I am not yet prepared to retain your services with assisting me to retrieve the security deposit, which is to say: I am not yet prepared to pay your required fee of 15% of the returned security deposit amount collected from the errant landlord.* *Please allow this language here to advise you that I do not wish to have 15% of my returned security deposit given to Keller, Klein, et.al. until such time as I determine I am unable to compel Mr. Morrison to legally return all or a portion of my security deposit to my satisfaction.* *Please cancel my ‘registration’; I will be in touch at a later date to request assistance (and pay your 15% fee) should I determine I cannot affect a response and an outcome from my own actions.* My decision here is based upon two things:

1. The phone number from your website does not lead to the ability to reach a live person and I am not convinced that were I to leave a voicemail message, it would be returned.

2. I have not yet received a reply to my emailed request for information regarding how your firm compels truthfulness from the landlords you contact with interest in retrieving outstanding, late, security deposit refunds.

I will send Mr. Morrison a letter via certified mail. After he receives it he will have 14 days to respond or I will file against in him Pasadena, CA small claims court. If I am not in agreement with the amount Mr. Morrison returns to me I will proceed with plans to serve him with and resolve this matter in court. As I cannot afford to pay the court costs myself, it is additionally my plan to file a form to ask that the fees be waived.

The only monies Mr. Morrison may legally and in good conscience retain from my $1400 dollar security deposit would be for a thorough general cleaning and for any monies owing for post-dated rent (period from early April to April 14, 2012.)

Your services are a wonderful idea and I applaud you for making them available. Thank you very much. A reply stating that you have received this and understand that I wish to proceed with my plan to send Mr. Morrison the certified mail request (in short, that I wish to first attempt a collection of my outstanding security deposit on my own before retaining help at a cost of 15%) will be appreciated yet unnecessary as I have stated it here and will retain a dated copy for my records.

Kindly please go ahead with reporting Mr. Richard H. Morrison as you see fit. Thank you for your kind assistance with this reporting of Mr. Morrison. Please contact me if you need additional details, dates, etc.

Sincerely,

Laura Copeland 

1445 S Norton Ave Los Angeles Ca 90019 Kum Powers

Kum Powers owns and lives in the 4 appartment complex in Mid City California. A recent incident in front of current tenants where Mrs. Powers, in what appeared to be a drunken rant verbally harassed, insulted, threatened, and bullied all tenants with statements like ” Everyone in this street in trash”, “I have lawyers that can get you out whenever I want.” “I am Korean and I am better than all of you”. She has also been quoted as stating that she prefers to rent to “non documented” individuals. A couple of years ago, my mother filed against this current landlord for illegally raising the rent for which Mrs Powers was forced to reimburse. My mother is a US citizen, and she has always payed her rent. Always made sure to keep the building clean and payed for all repair services out of pocket. Until recently, a city inspection required Ms Powers to fix all repairs to bring building up to code. I just want this to be on record, for nobody in this building is safe to know that their current living situation will change at any given time. 

5612/5618 Harold Way Los Angeles, CA 90028 Leo Valenzuela

The last owner/landlord of this property had an on-site live in manager for the past 10+ years I have lived here. When an on-site manager was present, the manager was able to regulate activities which violate leasing terms and help enforce proper conduct. Rules were being enforced correctly and the noises were maintained at a comfortable family-friendly level. Tenants were selected carefully and fairly. The on-site manager was readily available and helped with any sort of emergency that occurred, took complaints seriously, and did their part in helping keep peace between all tenants.

When a change of ownership occurred, the new manager/owner Leo Valenzuela [(323) 462-7011] and his wife/co-manager/owner decided it would be a good idea to get rid of the old on-site manager. As new owners, of course they had a right to do this but since this property has 18 units (although 2 different addresses are connected and considered ONE property) parking is shared between the two buildings and the central courtyard is shared as well as the driveway; There is no on-site manager living on the property and the rent must be mailed to the owner’s address. Nobody is available in case there is an emergency, instead we were advised to call the manager on his cell phone who lives a few minutes away. To my knowledge I thought that in California, if a property was a long-term leasing property that had more than 15 dwelling units, it was required to have an on-site manager.

I have also heard complaints from other tenants about the fact that Leo Valenzuela tries to enforce certain parking rules that really aren’t in the lease. One tenant was advised that it was okay to park in his ex-wife’s spot and Leo stated you are not allowed to park in another tenant’s parking spot, but how is this valid when the other tenant approves? Unnecessary accusations and drama are growing increasingly with the new landlords because I assume they are trying to get older tenants who are on rent control to move out so they can rent out the units for a higher price.

Loud noises and disturbances during odd times in the middle of the night cannot be regulated and tenants who are unruly continue to do so because of the lack of authority on the property. During the day, new tenants have loud social get-togethers and talk loudly about illegal recreational drugs such as marijuana. The property is no longer the quiet, family-friendly property it used to be and there is nothing to be done to keep it that way. In fact, the changes that are occurring indicate that this property will never be able to return to the family-friendly property it once was (even though a few small children dwell in the units here).  

Richard Prieto

As per our 30 day written termination of our lease and request for ‘Walk-through’, we have not received any itemized statement of deductions over $125 within the 21 calendar days of October 13, 2012, as stipulated in the California Civil Code 1950.5.

Under the California Civil Code 1950.5, we as the tenants have the right to be informed of any and all repairs and/or cleaning in an itemized statement over $125 with the 21 calendar days’ period and given the opportunity to repair and/or clean such items. These repairs and/or cleaning may not be due to reasonable wear and tear and/or due to previously noted items on the original ‘Condition of Premises’.

Since the above has not taken place within the 21 days’ period we are legally obligated to a full refund of the original $825 security deposit due to YOU, the Landlord, acting in ‘bad faith’.
 

66 Roswell Ave, Long Beach 90803 – Marilyn & Marty Adler

At first, Marty was constantly at the complex – I had zero privacy. I would hide in my room, and would literally see him peaking thru my bedroom blinds at me. I would always fake phone calls an try to sneak away without having to talk to him, but no matter how much of a hurry I was in, he would talk and talk, even following me to my car or inside my apartment UNIVITED! I am not trying to sound stuck up, but I am a younger female, amd he would harrass my girl friend as well. I even caught him watching me change! He would constantly tell me I was beautiful, and just generally make me uncomfortable. Then came the time to work on the apartment next door to me. The deafening sounds would begin around 6am, sometimes so loud the vibrations would shake my glasses off the shelf, and then work unti l1, 12 at night. Marty Adler lied to me and said it would be only during normal business hours. Now I work from home, at least I was at the time, and it was impossible for me to meet with clients or make phone calls with his NON-STOP presence outside my door and the constant work. It went on for 2 months when i was told two weeks. I mean, he would literally leave his coffee cup on the banister outside my door – that is how much time he spent vying for my attention. Then, the worst thing happened. His sister got sick and he hired a manager, Marilyn, to take over the complex. Immediately after her starting, there was trouble. In the month of December, I got hit by a semi-truck, was in and out of the hospital for cervical cancer tests, and dealing with severe depression over losing a close loved one. I also got robbed – my purse was stolen, along with my checks and cards and cash. Now, as you all know, cell phone reception in a hospital is shotty at best. I remained in constant contact with my landlord about rent, since my accounts had been frozen due to false speditures from the robbery. Out of the blue I receive a letter in my door saying I have 60 days to vacate the premises. In shock, I called Marty Adler and had his rent to him the next day. I was two weeks late. He assured me that everything was taken care of. When January came, I contacted Marilyn, asking her if everything was okay, to which she replied “yes” and paid my rent. On February 1st at 530 pm, I had a knock on my door and she hand delivered a note to me. It was a photo-copy of the original paper saying I was to be out byFebruary 15th. In shock, I tried talking to both Marty and Marilyn, and was never given an answer other than to vacate the property. Now I have asked for days about my security deposit, when to do the final walk thru, and hand in my keys and have yet to get a response. They lied to me so that I would pay 2 extra months of rent, and now refuse to tell me what is going on. They are greedy liars, and I STRONGLY reccomend staying away! I was there for over 3 years, and only late once. With a valid excuse. Watch out – I am sure they will do the same to you. Money makes people evil, and i am POSITIVE the reason they will not respond to me about doing a final walk thru or my security deposit is because they plan on keeping it. Which is illegal, even according to their lawyer. SO RENTERS BEWARE!!! 

14405 Algerine/Wards Ferry Rd, Sonora, CA 95370-Kimberly Freeman, M.D.

Heard about the property from a third party that knows both Dr. Kim Freeman and my family. It is an older single wide on a rural piece of property that Dr. Freeman lives on as well. Almost everything was changed once we gave her the deposits and signed the lease. The creek was no longer accessible, lease was ambiguous, not all the utilities were included. It was increasingly more and more difficult to pin down a move-in date, despite the fact the lease was effective on the 10th of the current month. Late night emails were frequent with a new mandate or criteria to fill before a sanctioned move in could occur. Dr. Freeman claims to utilize an attorney in her emails and verbally however this lawyer (if the lawyer exists) bluffs on local code, writes ambiguous nonenforceable leases, and is available at all hours on every day apparently. The coy coquettish Kim D. Freeman contrasts sharply with the angry aggressive tyrant that shows up after her hospital shifts. All of it felt ingeniously shady and scared us from moving in.

4000 Palmyra Rd. Los Angeles,CA 90008 Patrick De La Torre

To whom this may concern,

I am writing to report Patrick De La Torre, property manager at 4000 Palmyra Rd. in Los Angeles, CA. for not refunding our deposit of $900.00, and purposefully stalling so that we would think our check was on it’s way. Every time we called Patrick, he would assure us that our check had been sent and that we must wait for it to arrive. We tried calling his office for six months with no success. We moved out in February of 2009, and for a year he kept telling us that our check was on it’s way.

Although much time has passed, and our statute of limitations is probably long passed-I would still like to report this man for theft because he may do this to another tenant, and I would like this incident to be known just in case he tries this again. Rent and the cost of living in Los Angeles is way too high for landlords to try abusing tenants this way.

Thank you,
Shanil Weaver 

8022 PINE FALLS DR. HOUSTON, TEXAS 77095 JEANNIE HU REDWOOD CITY

BAD LANDLORD REPORTED !! BEWARE OF JEANNIE HU 379 QUAY LANE – REDWOOD CITY, CALIFORNIA 94065 – HER PHONE # IS 650-400-8007

I LEASED A HOUSE FROM ABOVE LANDLORD FOR 3 YEARS FROM 9/30/2008 UNTIL 8/31/2011. THE SECURITY DEPOSIT WAS IN THE AMOUNT OF $2560.00 AND RENT WAS $1280.00. MY RENT PAYMENTS WERE ALWAYS ON TIME, NEVER LATE. I HAD THE HOUSE PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED AND THE CARPETS CLEANED PRIOR TO MOVE OUT JUST TO BE NICE- NOT BECAUSE IT WAS REQUIRED. THE HOUSE WAS CLEANER THAN WHEN I MOVED INTO IT. THIS COST ME $500.00 FOR THE PROFESSIONAL CLEANING. DURING THE 3 YEARS THAT I RESIDED THERE, I HAD NUMEROUS PROBLEMS WITH THE AC UNIT, THE HEATER, AND THE CIRCUIT BREAKER BOX. ALSO OTHER ISSUES SUCH AS THE GARBAGE DISPOSAL BROKE, THE DISHWASHER NEVER WORKED, THE SLIDING CLOSET DOORS IN THE MASTER SUITE WOULD NOT SLIDE, ETC. I CONTACTED MY LANDLORD MANY TIMES OVER THESE ISSUES. MOST TIMES SHE WOULD NEVER RESPOND TO ME, OR IF SHE DID, SHE WOULD TELL ME WAYS TO FIX IT MYSELF. NEVER WOULD SHE GET ANY PROFESSIONAL PERSON OUT TO FIX THE PROBLEM. ON MY OWN DIME, I HAD TO GET AC PROFESSIONALS OUT TO FIX THE AC UNIT BECAUSE I LIVE IN HOUSTON WHERE AC IS NOT A LUXURY. I WAS NEVER REIMBURSED FOR ANY OF THESE REPAIRS. I REPLACED THE GARBAGE DISPOSAL AND HAD THE AC UNIT REPAIRED SEVERAL TIMES. ALL OF THE AC REPAIR PEOPLE SAID THAT I HAD TO GET AN ELECTRICIAN OUT TO REPLACE THE CIRCUIT BREAKER BOX AS IT WOULD KEEP TRIPPING AND THAT IT WAS A POTENTIAL FIRE HAZARD. I CONTACTED MY LANDLORD ABOUT THIS BUT SHE FELT IT WASN’T NECESSARY AND I COULDN’T AFFORD TO DO IT. I FELT LIKE I WAS IN CONSTANT DANGER OF A HOUSE FIRE. MY LANDLORD LIVES IN CALIFORNIA, MY RENTED HOUSE WAS IN HOUSTON. I HAVE NEVER MET HER AS SHE HAS NEVER BEEN TO HOUSTON SINCE I WAS HER TENANT. WE COMMUNICATE ONLY THROUGH E-MAIL. SINCE I MOVED OUT, SHE STATES THAT I HAVE CAUSED EXTENSIVE DAMAGE TO HER PROPERTY. HOUSTON HAS HAD A SEVERE DROUGHT THIS SUMMER AND WE WERE PLACED ON STRICT WATER RESTRICTIONS. HENCE, MOST YARDS IN THE CITY ARE BROWN AND MANY ARE3S ARE ON FIRE. SHE IS STATING THAT I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR REPLACING ALL THE YARD AND LANDSCAPING AND MAY EVEN BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SOME FOUNDATION ISSUES. NOE OF THIS IS TRUE. THE GRASS IS BROWN BUT NOT DEAD. NONE OF THE LANDSCAPING IS DEAD. WHEN I COULD WATER THE LAWN I DID AND MY WATER BILL TELLS THE STORY. SHE ALSO IS NOW HOLDING ME RESPONSIBLE FOR THE OTHER ISSUES STATED ABOVE EVEN THOUGH SHE IGNORED THEM FOR 3 YRS. WHILE I WAS LIVING THERE. ALL OF THIS AND SHE HAS NEVER PERSONALLY EVEN SEEN THE PROPERTY. PLEASE HELP ME.
