This is concerning the house on 1458 North Euclid Avenue in Indianapolis.  There were multiple problems on the move-in date, including that only the refrigerator was in working order (the stove had no pilot light, dishwasher had standing water with mold and insects, and garbage disposal was not functional), there were drawings and scuff marks on the walls, the plumbing in the one bathroom was not attached to the wall, and there was still furniture in the basement. Additionally, the back door would not open, the top step of the basement stairs was uneven, and the HVAC system hadn't been inspected (nor the filter changed) since 2006. The worst of the problems was excessive mold in the basement.



Because of my previous respiratory infection problems, I requested a professional evaluation of the mold in the basement. [continued below]....

..... The mold covered all of the walls, the beams supporting the floor above, the drywall, the fiber board, and the shelving and furniture left in the basement. The colors of the mold ranged from green to black, with black mold generally being a toxic fungus. I found a contractor agreed to view the home for free, but T&H refused to do this. This company hides behind an "owner" that the tenant is not allowed to contact, and claims that the owner refuses to pay for repairs. Your only advocate is the company, and the company will advise this owner on how to make money, not how to best serve a tenant.



If this house were to be inspected by the Marion County Health Department, I guarantee it would be declared uninhabitable. Although it was not delivered in a safe, clean, and habitable condition as required by law, I still had to pay two months of rent to get out of this lease (for which I received absolutely no benefit) because I cannot afford to front the money for a lawsuit.



If you are considering renting from this company, beware. This company is only out to make money and will do anything possible to cut corners, even if you have legitimate and reasonable concerns for health and safety.

(Note: I have photos of this home in the condition they tried to give it to me. Contact me for more information.)

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

This claim has proven to be false

AUTHOR: Jt - (U.S.A.)

This applicant has taken it upon herself to post inflammatory comments about our company throughout the internet. I assume she's more concerned about harming our company name than living up to contractual obligations and moving into a home that is perfectly safe for her and her roommate. AS ALWAYS, THERE ARE TWO SIDES TO EACH STORY.


All of the mildew/mold, which was minor and located in an unfinished basement, was thoroughly cleaned and disposed of. A de-humidifier failed, which was the reason the mildew developed, and it was replaced as well. We told this applicant multiple times that we would take care of all issues and she simply refused.


The Better Business Bureau, which this applicant also contacted, concluded... "the Bureau has determined that the response from your company addresses the disputed issues and exhibits a good faith effort to resolve the complaint. Therefore, the Bureau has decided to close the complaint and not pursue it further."


We have a WONDERFUL record of taking great care of our teants and run a highly reputable business. We're very sorry the applicant feels the way she does.
