Complaint Review: Kingswood Apt
Kingswood Apt580 Lewis Rd, King Of Prussia King of Prussia, Pennsylvania USA
Kingswood Apt Morgan Properties As tenants we were mislead in the lease- when we wanted to transfer to a new place it would cost us $800.00. The transfer was to get a bigger place and not have mold issues that happened twice in the bedroom (last closet on the wall). We also had problems with the sink disposal; the oven not working in Apt 108 bldg 210. Now that we left Nov. 29, 2013 my husband was in court due to overdue rent we held due to the problems we experienced. I was not able to go to court because I was on bedrest after pregnancy.From what the Judge told my husband - he would give us 30 days to move and this also included that we do not have to pay rent. After moving we received a letter from Kingswood stating we owe them the rent money and other charges. As a past tenants we do not see why we have to pay after they took us to court, evicted us and sent the money to collections does not make sense. We are very upset with the Management and Diane Hornes lies as they want money that they do not deserve. King of Prussia Pennsylvania

As tenants of Apt 108 Bldg 210 we experienced mold issues, oven working on and off; bad sink disposal (we had maintenance come and go to fix issues after a year of living at Kingswood from 2012 to 2013).
At time of renewal of lease the letter was placed on the back door we do not open often which caused it to be late to sign and return to Kingswood. So Kingswood renewed it automatically. This prompted us to see about moving to another apartment. The resident coordinator who no longer is there told us it would cost us $800.00. This surprised because it was not on the lease. We were told it was a seperate fee and we should have received it with our lease upon signing??? never did. We were not happy because upon telling them about the 'mold' issue Management denied our transfer because we were 'late paying rent.' And did not offer a place to reside as they fix the mold issue.
Finally, after we continually had molding in the bedroom - the last closet had the wall ripped open twice by two maintenance individuals. They just could not find the problem and just repainted the wall and left. Interestly, the second maintenace person left the hole in the wall open for two days as we slept in the room so that the water 'somewhere in the pipe area would dry. Now she would always say, she does not know where the water is coming from but is doing her best. My husband and I just shook our heads. And at the time I was pregnant due October 2013.
Also the oven was never working when we moved in the apartment 2012. It took a maintenance to remove the old one and replace the same one ?? not sure how this happened cause finally the oven just blacked out - the temperature thermoter was bad and replaced in October in 2013.
Now, we moved out of Kingswood Nov 29, 2013 and I got a letter from Kingswood Management stating they want their rent money.
Before the move my husband went to court to talk to the Judge October 30 2013 and explained everything to the Judge and Assistant Manager Diane Horne of our situation 'above.' The Judge then asked our husband if he wants to stay and his response was no - he prefers his family move out of Kingswood so the Judge gave us 30 days to move. Also we did not have to pay back rent and Management want the money --this is not clear why since we were evicted and the management is saying it is not--clearly the court documents state 'eviction' why should we pay?? We need a lawyer please.
