Midwest Realty Services, Chad Eitchen Faulty claims and loss Security deposit Plymouth Minnesota
My family and I rented a town home from Midwest from May of 2012 to March of 2014 and had to terminate our lease early due to a job re-location. We were charged $995.00 to do this. I worked extremely hard to clean, and do work necessary on a check off sheet given to me on leaving home so that we would not loose our deposit. I contacted the carpet company Midwest uses and they were waiting to hear from them before going into home to do carpets. I have pictures of how I left home and it was better then when we moved in. When doing the final walk through I was told by the realtor and handyman hired that the home looked great and only carpets may need to be done and a few of the curtain rod holes. I had only hung 2 pictures in that home. My famliy and I moved to Pennsylvania and 3 weeeks later I recieved an invoice from Midwest. I was amazed to find that they had kept my securtiy depost and had only sent my pro-rated rent back to me. I was also due last months rent which was not included with this. I then called the realtor that checked us out to find out what was going on. He then gave me Chad Eitchen contact information. Chad sent me picutures of the home and said that he needed to do quite alot of work on the home. I also have picutres and the home was fine. After speaking with Chad realizng I would get no where with him, I then realized I was never going to get that money back. He took advantage of us having to move and feels he was owed this deposit. He's needs to be held accountable for this. I know contracts and read the contract and what he is claiming for hours etc.. is wrong. I was only given an acutall invoice from carpet company and not from any professional cleaning service or painters. He charged me for 5 gallons of paint but then claimed he only needed to touch up??
I have contacted the BBB and The MN dept of Commerce with these claims.
Broken down they charged me $1283.00 of my $1300 deposit:
13.5 at $65.00 hour $877.50
1 light bulb master closet
1 door stop
Replace 2 florescent lights and clean fixture
clean drain in bathroom
sweep behind fridge
Touch up/ Repaint where needed
5 gallons of paint $180.22
Bulbs and door stop $14.73
