Pacific Electric Lofts

DO NOT RENT HERE! So after a full year of being a great tenant, never paid late, referred 3 people that live there, never was loud, wrote obviously great reviews, even had company rent the ballroom at a fortune I had moved out with a full notice (wanted to live someplace which was easier to walk my dogs). When I moved out I hired a professional cleaning crew (have receipt even). I didn't think I would have to supply a copy. People should pay on time, people should not pay late, people should write good reviews if they are happy and people should leave the place clean. With that said I was expecting my full refund. After not receiving it I called today and since I only work around the corner thought I'd go pick it up. I didn't even think to ask how much it would be for because I wouldn't expect them to keep most of it. I should also note here that the apartment wasn't freshly painted when I moved in. It wasn't perfect but it's a loft and most of it is concrete so I didn't think I should request a paint job. I also don't smoke. So out of my $1100 due They took out $255 for "paint apartment" $90 for "clean apt" and $15 for trash out-items left in unit". In thinking about the trash perhaps the maids didn't know where the garbage shoot was so I don't mind taking the hit on this if they want to be complete -------s even though my apartment was right next to the trash shoot. But I don't see why I should be charged for cleaning when I already had it done and for paint when it was in the same condition as when I moved in. When I asked why I am being charged for painting she said it "was because you lived there". Something tells me since they automatically charged me for cleaning even though it was obviously professionally cleaned they do the same for paint and trash. I said to Alma that this didn't seem fair and she said there was nothing she could do and that she would tell Christian. I asked if Christian would call me and she said he would. I asked when and she said that it wouldn't be today because he was in meetings all day. The whole thing is a huge disappointment. I really think anyone should consider twice before renting from a place that attempts to steal from you when you move out and then creates a barrier to resolution to be with some guy who isn't even even there. Next day update: 5:48 PM - No call from Christian as of yet.
