Complaint Review: Lennon Properties LLC - Staunton Virginia
Lennon Properties LLC Philip Lennon and/or Lindsey Lennon Harassment, stole money, lied, made my life unbearable, threatened me, had an effect on my health Staunton Virginia
While I do not know where the other properties are that this couple owns I do know about one...The one I unfortunately rented. Someone once gave me the advice to not rent where the property owner lives. I came to learn this the hard way. Before I continue I will say that this couple always has to have the upper hand. They cannot possibly admit to any fault, or apologize. there will 100% be a rebuttal toward this complaint, please ignore what they say.
I do not make it a habit of writing reports on here. The business owners that are smart do not post a rebuttal. Usually someone who is guilty has to talk their way out of things, and blame it on someone else. Someone who is intelligent knows when to shut up and/or walk away. Inelligent people do not brag about the fact that they own property. I was once a property owner also. I am in Virginia due to my husband being an alcoholic. All of my personal belonging burned in a house fire. My child and I were in the area to start over.
In September of 2020 I found an apartment to rent, in Staunton, VA. Staunton is known as the armpit of VA. Why did I want to live there? There was absolutely no afforable housing in Harrisonburg, where I work. Just because I know they are reading this and are wanting to know where I am....I am leaving Virginia on June, 8, 2021.The couple renting out the apartment at (((REDACTED))) Staunton, VA (((REDACTED))) advertised this place letting it be known that this was ideal for someone with children. Why? They did not want someone single who might invite their boyfriend or girlfriend over. Someone single or a couple would not be able to put up with the noise level.
This apartment is in a dark basement of a spilt level home. The married couple who own the home have 2 children under 5 who run their lives. The 2 children scream, yell, stomp, and run all over until they are thrown in bed at 8 PM. At 5 am they are back up again doing the same. Imagine what it was like to live hearing this, all day every day, including weekends, and holidays. The only break my own child and I got from this is if we went out, or left the apartment for Christmas vacation.
It was advertised as a 2 bedroom. The 2nd bedroom was a rotten futon from a thrift store in the living room. Utilities were included, we either roasted on warm days or froze in the winter. The propery owners constantly whined that we were running up their utility bills. Air BnB was not working out for them during the Cornavirus so they decided to rent out. Maybe because they got bad ratings? Along with being harrassed about using too much electric we were told our cat litter stunk, which it did not. Even if it did that is not something to comment on. There were often disgusting smells coming from them every time they attempted to cook Aisan food.
Every 2 minutes the children were knocking at the door with packages or mail. Everyday and night I would get texts about something. The rent was alawys paid on time with a cashier's check. They always deopsited the check the same day it was handed over. We were quiet, no company, no parties, no loud music or tv. Every weekend like clockwork when we wanted to sleep in the 2 children who lived upstairs were up at 6 AM, stomping, and jumping off their sofa. This was going on to the point where glass vases would fall and break, cans stacked would come tumbling down. We never said word. The noise always continued, the husband would be fixing things outside on the weekend at 8 AM, their children would be outside screaming, hitting each other and crying
.To say that their 2 children are apoiled brats The property owners were either on the phone, or staring at their phones. I never said a word. It was a place to live. Was it cheap? Not at all. Sure, it was furnished, with cheap, and ugly rotten furniture. Everything was scratched, the dishes were broken, the pots and pans unusable. It is outdated, and tacky. There was no oven, no closets, and 1 dresser. I dealt with it. Yes, I felt like I was living in my mother's basement but I needed a place with furniture. They did not ask for a deposit, nor did they check any references. I had just started working, and was broke.
The only thing they put in writing was the lease, which was month to month. In February I was told their house was being put up for sale. I knew this was a lie because of the couple's close ties to the area. All of a sudden I had to try to find a furnished place in 30 days. It cost me $400 to hire someone to help me move, rent a truck. I lost 2 days of pay because the internet in the new rental property was not hooked up. Every day the wife of the couple harrassed me with texts. After working all day this is what I had to return to. Often, after work I chose to go out because I didn't want to return that hell hole of a place.
I did not want to have to run into the owners or listen to their children. I attempted to speak with the wife about letting us stay until we found a place. She screeched at me, thereatned me, accused me of lying to her. All of this was due to me making a comment to her neighbor about how the owners never left any porch lights on at night and we killed ourselves to get into the apartment. That neighbor kept her porch light on all night which shone onto our faces. Every time we came and went there was the neighbor smoking and we had to say, "hello" while her dog growled at us.
I could continue going on about other things that they have done but you get the point. They appear to be very hard pressed for cash because the husband is always out of work. Not only is this a warning to any prospetive renter but is also a warning that you do not want to do business with these people. The only reason that Lindsey Lennon is employed is because her family members got her the job. Phillip, her husband is a consistently forcing her to do his dirty work, manage properties, cook, clean, supposedly watch their horrible offspring. When a couple cannot control their own children it says a lot about their personalities at managing other things.
Do not do any type of business with either Lindsey or Phillip. They care only about 1 thing, money. The first time I met them I thought, "The husband, Phil seems like a slime bag, and seedy." My first impression was right. Since we left their beloved basement they have found other ways to harrass us. Does this sound personal? No, it isn't personal. They run a business. They should not be in the rental property business. I wish this report was online before I rented from them.
