Merit Property Management Company - Worse Property Management Company
Request for help with disturbing tenant - Complaint
SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA -- In October of 2011, a management company rented the unit next to mine. I have owned my unit since 1984, and have no problems on record since I have lived here.
The tenant is a Section 8 tenant, with some mental disabilities. She not only would not abide by getting her music down, but she would scream and yell horrible things at any hour of the day and night. The police have been called 17 times, but because she would not open her door, they could do nothing. The lady who owns it has done nothing that we know of as she doesn't respond. Merit Management only responds to our emails and calls by saying we are doing the best we can, but they will not tell us what that is. When we asked why they have not fined this owner, per the CC&R's we again get no response and no help. This has been going on now for 11 months. The man who lives underneath her has been fighting this as well. Apparently because she is under Section 8 and has mental problems, she gets priority over of us who live around her. We have loss sleep, and I have had to see my doctor due to anixety and high blood pressure. Neither Merit, our Board or anyone seems to care. Merit should be fighting this for us, but it appears nothing is being done. I am a senior and cannot afford to hire an attorney, but am considering going to Small Claims Court. I think our Board hired Merit because they were cheap.
