Do you have a dispute? Bad Tenant or Bad Landlord, post your issues here so others can see the report.
TenantDispute® is a worldwide consumer reporting Web site and publication, by consumers, for consumers, to file and document complaints about tenant, landlord or individuals. While we encourage and even require authors to only file truthful reports, TenantDispute® does not guarantee that all reports are authentic or accurate. Be an educated consumer. Read what you can and make your decision based upon an examination of all available information.
Unlike the Better Business Bureau, TenantDispute® does not hide reports of satisfied complaints. ALL complaints remain public and unedited in order to create a working history on the company or individual in question.
TenantDispute® was started because of having experienced a deadbeat tenant that took advantage of our trust and good will. We hope that others will not fall victim to the same person. Learn from the mistakes of others - not your own. If you have tenant or Landlord problems, this is the place to vent and find out how to handle these problems.
I cosigned a lease for an apt. for my son (a college student) and let Joe Escalera move in. My son left due to excessive problems and Joe never signed the lease--he invited others to move in and they thrased the place--broken doors, holes on walls, etc. Joe and friends left before the year lease expired and left the apt a mess---hundred$ in damages and unpaid rent. I got stuck with the bills and he never answers his cell phone. He is currently somewhere in San Diego doing the same thing to someone else. Mark moved in at the same time Joe did. Mark left the apt. before Joe and he never bothered to notify me. Joe Escalera allowed others to move into the apt. w/o notifying me--one kid even had a PitBull pup! These two clowns are irresponsible to say the least. If you want proof of my allegations, email me and I will confirm everything.
Under no circumstances should you rent to either of these people. Emily Gravett was our tenant, always late with rent, kept the premises very dirty. She moved in her afghani boyfriend, without our permission and from then on, things got from bad to worse. She kept reporting this issue or that issue, and every time we sent our handyman in, he could find no problems. The final straw came when they caused a flood by damaging a pipe, and then charged us for their hotel stay, and falsely claimed damage to their personal property. They dragged us to small claims court, even after we paid for their hotel stay, because we refused to allow them to forgo paying the next month’s rent. They lost their case. The judge saw that they were clearly lying about damages. However, within three weeks, they caused yet another smaller flood, which again we had to have cleaned up, but this time we kept the piping which clearly showed that someone had purposely caused damage to it. We tried to bide our time, because the lease was coming to an end, and Emily Gravett had informed us she would not be renewing her lease, which we were fine with. We just wanted her out. We continued to treat her professionally and without malice, since we needed to rent the place after she was to leave. However, whenever we had to show the place, she kept the place untidy every time, knowing full well in advance that someone was coming to see it. We asked her on many occasions to please make the place presentable, which was to no avail. At one point, on a number of occasions, they put up a large poster saying that the number of the Police was below, in-case you need to report a crime, letting potential tenants believe falsely that the apartment was in a crime ridden area. Needless to say, due to all these efforts by these two people, we are still unable to rent it. Please do not rent to them, if you do not want a financial headache. These two should be in jail. If you are renting to them, get rid of them as quickly as possible. If you require proof for any of my statements, please contact me.
