First Place Management Complaint - What Management?
JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA -- I own a home in Jacksonville which I am using as a rental property until my job transfers me back. I contracted with First Place to manage the property i.e., screen tenants, collect rent and ensure the property is maintained. In the past three years I've had three changes in tenants. With each change the "truth" comes out - the tenant wasn't financially responsible(Thought you guys screened these folks?!) and in the course of the move out, damages exceeding the security deposit are always noted and repaired by First Place's own crack "jack of all trades".
Oddly enough, their "invoice" charges always equal the security deposit and include such necessaries as changing 5 light bulb for $50 and new toilet seats(every new tenant gets a new toilet seat - Whoo Hooo!). The rent is never deposited on time and trying to get an answer or a returned phone or email - forget it.
I guess when the next tenant moves out, I'll be moving First Place out too!
