Resident • 2016
Stole my deposit when I moved out.
Moved in on a short lease when I moved to Houston. June - August 2016, 3 month lease. The apartment changed ownership once while I lived there, then again after moving out. I was told they would deduct my last water bill from my deposit, and send me the remainder in a check.
Finally called 2 months later and was told because they changed owners, they can't see why they took my money, just that I didn't owe anything.
The woman tried to make it sound like a deal, "You don't owe us anything, and we don't owe you anything, nice and easy!".
I had no animals, and had no parties and barely a friend over, so no damage to the apartment was done.
Overall, I felt mostly safe, they maintenance department is actually really good and responds quickly. There is a mix of lower income, and medium income frugal people that live there.
Apartment is old and smells pretty bad like smoke/rat feces/you name it. I would have considered staying because of the price if it didn't smell so bad, but I had to get out.
