I lived at AIMCO address for nearly 10 years and was never late on rent in all that time. Matter of fact, somtimes I paid 2 months of rent at once to get ahead. Last year, I lost my job and had to abandon my apartment, but I let them know before leaving. AIMCO personnel indicated I would be charged for 2 1/2 months of rent being my lease was up then. I was ok with that. Their final bill sent to me via email was for nearly 4 months of rent. I was, also, NOT credited for things I was to be credited for.


I tried contacting AIMCO via phone and email to apprise that I was willing to pay the bill, but still unempoyed. THey referred me to their collection agency who are horrible and mean people (no surprise). I tried negotiating with them to get on a payment plan which I could try and afford and I also said that I would be looking at paying the bill once I got employed and that my record speaks for itse.f  Collector agreed my credit with them "is excellent" but was unwilling to work with me.


I called AIMCO corporate and only got automated voicemails. I called AIMCO local and also was told I could not talk to them but had to talk to their collection agency.


I am a senior citizen and being treated horribly by a company that has documented what a great tenant I was, yet they are so unwilling to work with me and handle me now by threats to destroy my credit.

 Your age has nothing to do with any of this so your asertation that they are picking on you because you are elderly is mistaken. Its called a ETF, or EARLY TERMINATION FEE. It is NOT thier responsibility to care that you had a issue in YOUR life. It is a business and as such they must do what they have to do by the terms and conditions of the rental lease YOU signed. Even if it had been 10 years as a resident, it will not change the fact that YOU have not paid the rent.

What exactly is the problem? So they are going to report YOUR DELIQUENT PAYMENTS to the credit agencies. That is the cost of not paying your bills. Thats all. You expecting them to do MORE for you then is legally allowed is silly. Because of tenants such as yourself, they no longer get to "work with you". They dont know if youre just trying to get out of paying what you LEGALLY owe. They MUST assume you are a deadbeat looking to skip out on the bill.

They are NOT going to do anymore for you then they are allowed to. Do not expect them to do so. This is on YOU. YOU did not pay the rent, YOU get that on your credit report. If this is uncomfortable for you, I suggest you become a home owner.

And REALLY!?! You attempt to use your age as a defense against them?? How does that work exactly?? If you were 25 years old would you complain that they would use your YOUTH against you? People like you always try and find an excuse to deflect responsibility onto others. If you dont believe me, look at your own post. In it you cite examples of how "good" you are and then cite examples of them being "bad". This is a COMMON  American Consumer Tactic. It is often used when REALITY shows that the individual is REALLY the culprit and just wants to skate out without paying.

I understand finances are rough right now. We are trying to recover from a serious crash that costs a lot of people thier jobs and livelyhoods. But a crash doesnt absolve ANYONE of thier personal financial responsibilities. That is what YOU have done. You are attempting to get them to allow you to get away with not paying or youre attempting to get them to lower what you should pay. They can no longer do that. In todays economy you either pay what you owe or you get reported.
