Kacena Real Estate Management, LLC Complaint - Don't rent from this company in Iowa City
CORALVILLE, IOWA -- Kacena is one of many rental agencies in a college town who assume all students will leave their apartments a mess and plan to keep the damage deposit. When me son moved into one of their apartments we made a list of things that had not been taken care of from the previous tenant, including burned out light bulbs. I assume that person lost the deposit and was told management had to take care of it. THEY DIDN'T. When my son moved out I cleaned the place top to bottom. I cleaned the tub twice, but the yellow stain doesn't come out. I pulled out the stove and refrig and found years worth of grease. The previous tenant had left a shower curtain hanging. We had taken it down, used another and when my son moved out laid the old one across the shower. Yes, these were all things listed as reason my son lost his deposit. The biggest joke, was that I hadn't lifted the closet/pantry shelves and cleaned the shelf rails.
That was the only thing that wasn't spotless. Do not rent from this company and if you do, plan to leave the place a mess, because you are not getting your damage deposit back.
