Resident 2012 - 2013

I am writing to let you know the management from The Westdale office on Monticello Ave down to the maintenance at La Mirada on Regal Drive is very unprofessional and not customer friendly. They have constantly been lying as to who makes the decisions. My elderly aunt resides there, she resides there with her daughter, and someone was outside of the apartment smoking weed, and the police was called, no citations or names were taken by the Richardson Police Department, but they sent the police to my aunts residence to tell her she would be evicted because someone in her house was smoking weed. The first issue is no one at the house smokes weed, and this was just a random individual in the apartment complex, thirdly marijuana is illegal and if the police department catch you with it, a charge should be summoned on that individual, not to target the only African american woman in a unit that is full of ---------. By no means am I racist or anything but, that is all that is employed at this complex. This happened on the 2nd of January, my aunt paid her rent on the 3rd, the complex politely came to her door on the 4th and issued her a 3 day eviction for marijuana usage on the property, no name is attached to the letter, not even a description of who was smoking weed. This incident caused my aunts pressure to increase, with an eviction notice and no place to go, no money, my cousin told her to call the bank and put a stop pay on the check so we could go look for a place for her to move, suitable for and elderly that can't walk a flight of stairs. This turned out to be a daunting task due to the lack of apartments having 1st floor vacancies, we even looked at rental homes. We found one, dropped the deposit, and all, the apartment complex called the La Mirada only to be told that my aunt didn't give notice she was moving( mind you she was given a 3 day eviction for marijuana usage on property) That fell through and left us back at the beginning of finding a place, on the 7th of January The LaMirada apartments issued out to my aunt an 3 day eviction( this time for non-payment of rent, a bounced check, which included her rental history from this complex showing she has never been late with a payment. My cousin called the apartment complex and asked them if she pays the current rent, plus late fees could she stay till the end of the month, because finding a suitable place for her would take some time, they said no, she has to get out. My cousin called back and asked for the number to the management company that runs La Mirada , they did not want to give him the number until he threatened to call the nearest constables office. He finally got the number to Westdale, and talked to the lady that is over the account for La Mirada, she said that it was up to the discretion of the property manager to make the decision if she would take the money for that month. She was asked who the property manager was, we called the property manager and told her we talked to corporate and they said it was up to you to say yes or no. She told us that she would have to talk to her manager, and she would call us back (mind you her boss just said she has the discretion to make that decision) we never received a call back. My cousin called back and was told she was not there. On the 15th they issued out another 3 day eviction and told my aunt they were filing to the court the next day if she doesn't come in by 9am on the 16th with $1177, my cousin called them this morning and was told that nobody tried to call her or get in contact with her, the property manager, now either you have some incompetent people working in your office, or your property manager is lying. I will circulate this story to the news stations, city officials, and beyond and be an thorn in the side of Westdale in Dallas, Tx. In the hopes of no one being so terribly treated.
