Complaint Review: 417 Rentals
417 Rentals5759 W Hwy 60 Brookline, Missouri United States of America
417 Rentals Chris Gatley Raised rent, failed to repair central heating system for an entire winter, cieling colasped, broke my washing machine Brookline, Missouri
I thought that if I threatened to stop paying my rent until the heater was fixed, I might get something accomplished. However, I was served with papers of a civil suit for my rent and late fees BEFORE I even missed the rent payment. When I call Chris about it, he told me not to worry about it and that it was a mistake. I had a bad feeling in my stomach so I went to court anyways. Sure enough, Chris was there, attempting to sue me for my rent and $150 worth of late fees. I paid all of my rent, on time. I had my receipts with me so Chris dropped the suit. If I hadn't of shown up to court, as Chris instructed me, he would of won the law suit. I felt trapped in this house.
Then, one night around 11 pm, my bedroom ceiling caved in on itself, completely unprovoked. I was in the kitchen or I might of been seriously injured. Over $1000 worth of my possessions were destroyed (musical instruments, computers, etc.). My bed and comforter was covered in mouse feces, and I mean 100's of them. 417Rentals patched up the hole with some sheet-rock and attempted to vacuum up the mess with my vacuum! They did not offer $1 worth of compensation for all of the possessions I lost. In fact, after I requested to have my rent lowered to compensate for my giant utility bill, lack of central heat (that I was promised), and replacing everything that was destroyed in my room, they responded by telling me they have decided to raise my rent. I didn't understand how that was even legal considering I had a contract with them, but they informed me there is a clause in all of their contracts that states they can raise the rent when ever they want. Thank God my lease is finally over!!!!
