Beware if you decide to rent from this guy. He is in his 40’s. He has a dad with the same name who lives in Kennesaw. He will promise you the moon to get you to rent from him but then you will have serious problems getting anything fixed. I rented from him for a while. When I moved in the house, I told him everything that needed to be fixed. None of the things got fixed until at least two weeks after moving in. I continued to call him and request that he fix the problems in the house. He kept saying that he would fix them. If things did get fixed, it took anywhere from two weeks to 8 weeks. Some of the items were still not fixed when I moved out of the house. He kept my deposit when I moved out. He listed some of the items that I asked him to fix on the damage report that he made after I moved out. He said that I damaged them. Besides that, he is always drunk. One time he came to my house drunk asking for the rent. He insisted that I pay him in cash. A week or so later, his dad showed up and asked if I was going to pay rent that month. I told his dad that I had given him the rent in cash about a week ago. He never asked me for cash again. He is also a buyer’s agent for real estate. He will let you break your lease if you will let him be your buyer’s agent. I will say that if you find a house that you want to buy, he will do a great job as a buyer’s house. But, keep in mind that you may have to find the house yourself. Just remember if you rent from him, be ready to fix everything yourself, keep your receipts, and take whatever you spent fixing the problem out of that month’s rent. He talks a good game but you have to know your rights and be ready to fight him on these things.
