linnemann realty Poor Service as Property Managers, Internet
This review should serve as a warning to all prospective customers who may be considering using this company either as a property manager or those who may be looking for a place to rent. I own a house in Copperas Cove, TX and have used Linnemann to manage my property. I bought this property while serving as a soldier stationed at Fort Hood. When I relocated I was recommended to this company to manage my property during my absence. During this time I have dealt with many problems, a few of which I am listing here. I have had numerous email confirmations and statements sent to me reflecting payment of monthly rent to my account through direct deposit to my bank but when confirming my bank information the money never was deposited.
I emailed numerous times each time with a copy of my statement as proof and was finally awarded the payments. Tenants are continuously put into my house for 3 to 4 months where they live without paying rent. They are taken to court and evicted but not before doing considerable damage to my house. All repairs are extremely overpriced. I continuously deny approval of these inflated repairs costs but Linnemann keeps doing the repairs anyway and charging my account the seriously inflated prices. A couple examples of this include: replacement of the breaker box for $600.00.
This item is sold at Lowes and Home Depot for under $130 complete with breakers. It takes maybe an hour to replace. Another would be replacement of the 4 pipe boots on the roof for $350.00. These items are sold at Home Depot for $18.00 each and take maybe 30 minutes to replace. The list goes on and on but I think you get the picture. They continuously ignore my emails and attempted contacts.
The tenants who do attempt to honestly rent the property are shown the house in a completely trashed state. They are told the house will be available for move in on a certain date with all repairs completed and fresh paint but that is not the case. Tenants are expected to move in with the house in very poor, filthy condition and except it the way it is. They are not given their deposits back and requests for support in maintaining the property are continuously ignored.
I am a soldier who has trusted my property to these folks and have simply been taken advantage of while being stationed abroad and while being deployed fighting in both Iraq and Afghanistan for several years. I am currently researching avenues of recourse to have this business removed as my property managers. I hope this review can save others from having the headache of dealing with this business.
