Homeowner James "Jim" Duguay and Kathleen Teare, Atlanta Partners
Property Management, located at 1745 North Brown Road, Suite 150,
Lawrenceville, GA Georgia 30043, (678) 597-5888 rented a townhome to my
family at 3177 Corner Oak Drive, Norcross, GA 30071. SEWAGE OVERFLOW - FLOODS - COCKROACHES AND MILLIPEDES EVERYWHERE
MOLD/MILDEW - AIR AND OTHER MAINTENANCE PROBLEMS
Based on my family's experience with these people, it is our opinion
that they are a couple of con artists who scammed my family out of
thousands of dollars in rent for a house that should not have been on
the market in the first place. [continued below]....
..... We feel like they stole our money and
left us to deal with their problems.
The structural foundation of this house was built in such a way that
causes repeated floods throughout the time we stayed there. This house
also sits at a low point on the land so 3177 gets other people's runoff
during rain or flood. And the house was built cheaply with the sewage
system draining under the house, rather than away from it as is the
norm. The owner and the agent were well aware of the flooding problems
and failed to disclose that to us at the time of rental, which is
against housing laws in Georgia. Yes, we are going to sue them. This
house would have to be rebuilt from scratch or undergo major
reconstruction to prevent the type of flooding we experienced. The
house flooded whenever it rained because the gutters, piping and
drainage were shot to hell. Then there was massive flooding downstairs
anytime we showered. Then there was the most disgusting flood of all - a
sewage explosion all over the downstairs bathroom which overflowed into
the living room, DINING ROOM, KITCHEN, from the front of the house all
the way to the back. It was worst thing I'd ever seen.
What's worse is that there were other problems in this house as well.
Living at 3177 Corner Oak Drive was one hellish nightmare after the
next. The owner James "Jim" Duguay and Kathleen Teare could not have
possibly cared any less. They only did what was in their best interest
and at their own pace.
My family was as flexible and understanding as possible, mainly because
we did not want the inconvenience of having to move. But after
experiencing numerous back-to-back problems with the house, we decided
enough was enough. We had to take the loss of moving the family after
only being at 3177 Corner Oak Drive for just over a year! Not to
mention, it was an expensive move that we did not even have time to
prepare for. That's when the con artists turned to a-holes. The owner
James "Jim" Duguay and Agent Kathleen Teare of Atlanta Partners Property
Management forced a decision to demolish a portion of the house WHILE
WE WERE STILL IN IT, BASICALLY RENDERING US HOMELESS! And they made NO
OFFER to provide alternate accommodations. MOLD had grown all
throughout the crawlspace under the stairs. They brought in countless
loud industrial construction machines during the repairs and kept them
running 24/7. Construction dust, sewage debris and mold residue was
blown all over our furniture, dishware, book library; contaminating
thousands of dollars in personal property. It also made me sick. I
ended up contracted a rash over the areas of my body that were exposed
when we entered the property on the day the demolition took place. When
Kathleen Teare threatened to hold us responsible for the damage to the
house, we felt like we were under total duress and had no choice but to
allow them to begin the work. Still we had no idea of the extent of the
demolition they would do while we were at work. We returned home to a
house that had been torn apart and left to dry. The machine were so
loud, we could not hear each other speak. To be treated in this way was
Kathleen Teare added insult to injury by accusing us of trying to
swindle money out of them when we complained of the conditions. I mean
these ruthless heathens are beyond respite. I would NEVER EVER do
business with Kathleen Teare, James Duguay, Atlanta Partners Property
Management or anyone that is even remotely affiliated with these thugs.
Furthermore, they only patched over the problem superficially to sell
it, but the cheap shoddy and location of the property are the real
culprits, so the next set of occupants will likely have ongoing
flooding and mold issues as well.
If you are thinking about buying or renting 3177 Corner Oak Drive,
Norcross, GA 30071, think again. There are an unlimited number of
houses you could choose from. No matter how cute they make the house
LOOK, it's a nightmare waiting for the next set of victims to move in.
Why take the risk of having an experience anywhere near ours? And I'll
tell you right now, the owner James "Jim" Duguay will turn his back on
you because he is a heartless con artist thief that only wants to get rid of that jacked up house, that not even he wants to live in. Don't be fooled by all the pretty fixtures like the cheap paint job
or plastic light fixtures.
If you thinking about doing business with Kathleen Teare or Atlanta
Partners Property Management LLC, do yourself a favor and find a company
that actually has great reviews INDEPENDENT OF THEIR OWN WEBSITE.
