IaIannotti Realty Solutions Fraud Lyndora Pennsylvania
I signed a one year lease for a rent to own mobilein March 2004. I paid $3,841.00 to the Iannotti's prior to moving in. I was charged $300 and some dollars for propane and found after moving in that I had 20lb of propane in the tanks not full tanks. I completed my move in inspection and turned it in. None of the issues were addressed.
There was an outlet box in the front bedroom that you could not touch as it would send sparks flying, the water heater was malfunctioning, alot of other damages reported and none of these were addressed by the Iannotti's. When I would call into the office the girl would take my message and at one point, a gentleman who was in charge of fixing things for them told me that it was my responsibility to take care of the problems.
Between August and September I was changing jobs. My final pay from the one company had come from the corporate office which is out of state so my bank returned my rent check. I called the bank to find out why the hold and they told me about the out of state hold. I spoke with Stephanie asked if I could send money orders and she told me that it would be fine but the amount would be higher, she quoted me $706.00, which was 575. for rent, 57.50 late fee, 50. NSF fee, $10/day for each day after the 3rd of the month $200. with a total of 217.50 being due. They applied 665. to the rent and 41. to the propane.
In October, 2004 I had had enough so I informed them I was moving out the end of the month. I completely cleaned the home, steam cleaned the carpets for the 3rd time, as every time you turned around, there were larvea worms coming up from in the carpet and that was the only way to keep them away for a short time. Completed my move out inspection with the items of repair I had done and the condition of the home when I moved out.
They advertised the home in November and in mid-november the advertising stopped so I believe they rented the home.
In December of 2005, they filed with a local magistrate that they wanted rent monies not paid by me. I called the court told the girl that I had evidence I wanted to submit for a case. I was told it had to go to the clerk of courts first. I sent the information in and waited to receive a court date. The only thing I received was a judgment against me for 7,798.70. That same week, I received the paperwork back from the clerk of courts and was told that I had sent it to the wrong office and that it should have gone to the magistrate court. When I called the magistrate court, I was told I could file an appeal. That was not possible as I was the only person working to support my familyas my husband was on disability due to cancer.
Then came the hearing for the check in Ferbruary, 2006. When I showed up at the court with my money order receipts, the judge and I talked about the proof I had and once the police officer showed up, he told the judge that it was a miscommunication and that the check had been included in his prior ruling. When the police officer saw the money orders, he said well how can you prove that these went to this person. Well, it was who they went to and in the amount Stephanie told me to pay. The judge said ok you can go. Never did get a summary for that hearing's final outcome.
The Iannotti's never gave the court any information regarding the payments I had made in security or the money order receipts, all of which I have in my posession.
