At Tandem Properties we work hard to ensure our policies are applied equally to each resident. Our managers attend IREM certification classes which include an extensive training in fair and equal housing practices. We are sorry this resident feels he was treated unfairly, but we have reviewed the incidents in question with our staff and found that all of our policies were applied fairly and equally. We work hard to ensure everyone feels welcome at our properties and are happy to do whatever we can to reasonably resolve problems when they arise. We encourage this resident to contact us to further discuss his concerns as soon as possible. Regarding the car incident: Due to limited parking available at [redacted] we do have a one-vehicle-per-resident-driver policy and do require vehicles be in operating condition. At the time of the incident, this resident's household had already been granted an accommodation and been allowed an additional vehicle (for a total of three vehicles for a household of two drivers.) After the accident, we happily accommodated his rental car, but could not accommodate storing the fourth non-operating vehicle. Regarding the plant incident: [redacted] did go through an extensive repainting this year. We appreciate very much the patience and cooperation our residents showed during this process and apologize for any inconvenience. We used the same notices for all of our residents and worked hard to inform our residents prior to painting their particular building by letting each household know which items would need to be moved. If any items were damaged by the process of painting or pressuring washing, please contact us so we can further discuss your concerns. Regarding the noise/party complaint: After the incident in question, [redacted] management did follow up with the household involved. A private meeting was conducted with that household during which the noise policy at [redacted] and the consequences of future violations were explained. If problems are continuing, please contact us and we are happy to help. Regarding the request for rental verification: [redacted] management has no record of receiving a request. Tandem management did receive a phone message on my (Ms. [redacted]'s) phone line during my vacation. I returned the call with no response back. Normally rental verification requests come from the new landlord. I would be more than happy to provide you with a letter, but I would need more information. Regarding the current condition of the laundry room and parking lots: Our team checks and cleans the property each business day. If a machine is not working, or if we've missed anything, please report it to the office and we are happy to have it fixed. We are sorry to hear of your frustrations with [redacted] and would like you to know that we work hard to resolve concerns for our residents whenever possible. We are sorry to hear that you will be leaving us this summer, but we encourage you to please contact us at your earliest convenience as we would like to further discuss your remaining concerns and help do what we can for you before you go. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Sincerely, Shari [redacted] Property Manager Tandem Properties
I am rejecting this response because: There is a Car in the Parking lot, for which I have evidence photograph taken on 8/13/14, the Car is not in working condition. I have evidence to prove it is not functional, yet it has been on the [redacted] property for over 10 days.
I would like to review the copy of the [redacted] Lease clearly stating that cars that are not in working condition cannot be parked. I will have my attorney review it. Please highlight it so I and my attorney are claer.
