  1. I agree. I talked to her about that it looks as though they are actively trying to find someone to fill the apartment. My concern is how do I stop this from going to collections before the 30-day mark. From September 27th to October 6th is not 30 days so how can something be headed towards collections that fast.
  2. How do I stop this from going to collections on the 6th. Now that in itself is odd because the letter is dated 9/27, but states it will be turned over to collections on Oct 6th unless a payment is made or a signed agreement. Is this normal when breaking a lease. I would think he would at least have 30 days.
  3. Now that I've talked to her at length, they're 60 days behind for water, sewage, and storm water. There several fees for that, that sound legit. The big thing that jumps out at me is the accelerated rent for XX days, Now that I've read the lease, I can see how it's valid. What doesn't make sense is number of days "in unit" is multiplied by the daily pro prated rate. I asked about this. He moved out half way through the month after paying Septembers rent so he was credited back a portion of that rent. There's a dilay pro rated charge for each day until the lease ends on 11/5. I asked has the apartment been leased and she says no. It's my understanding he should not be charged if it's rented to a tenant. Also, it seems this is only the beginning, if the apartment isn't rented for 2 or 3 months which is highly unlikely she may come back with additional fees. Or maybe not since the lease is up on 11/5. How do I stop this from going to collections on the 6th. Now that in itself is odd because the letter is dated 9/27, but states it will be turned over to collections on Oct 6th unless a payment is made or a signed agreement.
  4. I'll back up from the ledge and give them a call. That would probably be better than going in blazing! lol.
  5. The document missing from his lease agreement was a lease termination letter which was a separate document that was signed 5 years ago. Because that portion of his lease some how went missing once new management came in, the amount he has to pay for breaking his lease early was significantly less. Now the property manager has sent him a letter saying he owes a different amount than what's listed on the Residents Notice to Move Out that was signed by him and one of the agents in the office.. What should next steps be? I know any communication with the property manager, I would guess, would need to be via mail, certified return receipt. We're in Texas. Im guessing first get an itemized list of how she came up with over $1800. There is a deadline on the letter of October 6th, Management changes should NOT have changed what paperwork he has in HIS file. EVERY lease I have ever seen signed for an apartment resulted in a copy for the tenant. He needs to be able to produce that if it was more favorable for his interests, as it would then shift the burden to the management to demonstrate it was not valid or enforceable. I cannot say I ever saw a 'lease termination letter' as an addendum at lease signing, but I rarely was in properties that used the TAA lease. The people I helped to bust a TAA or TAR lease had leases where the language was simply in the clauses of the ten or eleven page document (or at least they seemed that long). TAA and TAR tend to be similar in nature...TAR tends to come into play more on homes being leased with the assistance of a realtor. Absolutely ensure that communications are sent by certified mail, both to the complex management as well as the corporate parent (if one exists). Pay attention to the Texas Property Code as well...off the top of my head and being too lazy to go double check, I want to say it will be Chapter 91 or 92. I do not believe, with a mid-month departure, that they will be able to enforce the arbitrary deadline of the 6th. However, even if grounds existed, a proper letter places the issue in controversy and will be Exhibit A if a third-party got hired to try and collect without the itemization being provided. If he was on good terms with the complex, he might initially want to go in and try to be social in discussing the matter... Thank you so much for your reply. I looked it up it's Texas Property Code 91. I'm not sure what happened with his paperwork, it's been so long he doesn't have a copy anymore. What we have today is the TAA Residents Notice of Intent to Move out https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/2201/4527/files/Image_1.jpg?1090900188125180039 Here's an image. The agent used the word lease termination, the two women there were stunned that section of his lease was "missing" and to his benefit because they confirmed what's on the TAA Residents Notice of Intent to Move is lower than it would have been with it in his file. If I could get a little guidance here. It seems I should send a letter today to their office and to corporate parent citing Chapter 91 and questioning the amount requested, the amount on the TAA Residents Notice of Intent to Move, I'll attach a copy of the TAA Residents Notice of Intent to Move as well. I'm at a loss really. I see the law, I see how it applies but still at a loss. He's on good terms with the agents there, the manager on staff is very difficult to deal with which is why I believe he has this letter asking for additional money by Oct 6th.

  7. Yes we have the signed Residents Notice of Intent to Move out with all the fees I listed above signed by the agent in the office. Everything is on paper and signed by him and her. I attached images, see links below. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/2201/4527/files/Image_1.jpg?1090900188125180039 https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/2201/4527/files/Image_2.jpg?1090900188125180039
  8. My boyfriend moved out his apartment into his new home earlier this month. He had been living at his apartment for 5 years, during that five years management changed. Sometime during his stay his termination paperwork was lost. I went with him on 9/7/2017 to make sure they didn’t try to charge additional fees without having the right paper work in place. Sure enough they didn’t have any termination of lease paperwork on file so he was only charged a reletting free of $744. He signed a Residents Notice to Move Out, he had already paid rent of $860, the reletting fee was listed as $744 plus a water fee yet to be determined, and $27.74 a day pro-rated until they found the next person to rent it out. Generally it takes 14 days to rent his floor-plan. He also had a $200 deposit he made during the time of is initial contract signing 5 years ago. On 9/27 he received a letter form the property manager saying he needs to pay $1,845 by October 6th or his account will be sent to collections. There was not itemized bill, nothing just a letter saying pay $1845 or send a signed agreement. I wanted to call, but decided I’d ask here for next steps in case there is some legal action that needs to be taken in the end. There’s no way he owes this much money. What should I do?
  9. I would like it removed from my credit reports. I'd rather it not be a paid collection, those are just as bad an unpaid. I paid via a bank check so I would have proof, they accepted the payment in January.
  10. Verizon Wireless shows as "placed for collection" on one CR and "collection" on the other. I paid the renaming balance to Verizon in January. Can I use Jack Attack on an OC, I don't think I can? By the time I found out about my last payment with them customer service said they had turned it over to collections, but I never heard from them so I paid Verizon directly. I've yet to hear from a collection agency and it's listed on my credit reports and Verizon.
  11. Currently I'm at 7%. I def want to get it a lot lower, my credit has improved since purchasing the car.
  12. I've done some research. I want to refinance my car to pay it off early. Car Value Trade-in Value is $19,100, Trade-in Range $18,177 – $20,022 per Kelly Blue Book. My payoff is $22,691.74. There's a slight gap there. What lenders could I go with? Someone mentioned I could finance with Audi, I don't want to trade my car in, I want to pay it off. I have a 2013 Audi A4. This is from my previous thread: https://creditboards.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=562471&hl= TIA
  13. I went back and reworked the trade in value, I missed some check boxes. The correct number is $18,400. Still leaves over $6000.
  14. Maybe that's what happened. I'm going to check my figures again, I used BBB for the value I have now. I'll also make some additional payments so I can pay it down.
