I agree with you, don't know much about these slumlords, but what I do know, if they're anything like Lani Properties then it's all true.OMG you are so right. I recently moved out. They took my entire security deposit $1200 and is claiming I owe them $1325 more. Their breakdown $150 Haul Away,$75 Repairs,$975 Painting, and $1325 for Carpeting. When I moved out I had 7 people help me. There was nothing that needed to be hauled away. We painted the walls so why am I being charged for them to repaint the unit?? especially $975. Being charged $225 to haul away what? there was nothing left.The patch hole and crack in the front door. Ok first of all I lived there for 5 years they had to replace my front door a couple of times due to the swelling caused by the rain. Also there was a couple of times in which I was locked inside of my house and couldn't get out or I be locked out not able to get in. The second time they so called handy man changed the front door, all he did paint the front and not the back side of the front door. Not to mention My back door also had to be changed several times due to the rain eating the door. The back door was a special made door and only after the handy man explained to the owner that if they did not put something to protect the door they would have to continue replacing the door. The owner agreed and therefore my unit was the only unit with a home made something protecting the back door. I say this because after the handy man did it, I got a call from the property manager because I got complaints about the blocker. I had to remind the property manager Aloha that the blocker being complained about was put up by the handy man. In lieu of all this I don't mind take responsibility for the patch hole and crack in the front door. I just want to go on record saying that We filled the hole. Unfortunately I did not have time to paint it because I had to be out and I had to wait until the patch dried.As far as the so called Re-install living room screens thats a bunch of bull crap. I had some one rescreen every window in the house. The only window screen we could not put back up was on the right side because the handy man ended up replacing the entire Frame ( I think it's called. The part holds the jalousie in place and the cranks are attached too.)Any way the handy man ended up screwing up. The way he cut it if he put it in right you couldn't open the window. So instead what he did was make it so that instead of the last jalousie he put a wood pane. Now they are trying to charge me for it. Also there is such thing as normal wear and tear. I admit my only fault with the carpet is not being able to have it professionally clean. If I did it would of removed the three juice stains on the carpet. Which was the only problem with the carpet. In fact another person was moving out at the time and they lived there the same amount of time as me. Their carpet really was bad compared to mine. They had red dirt stain and Black oil stains etc. My carpet looked brand new next to it. Anyway instead of just having my carpets professionally cleaned and charging me $300 they instead took it upon themselves to recarpet and charge me $1325. I believe the only reason they did this is I have Section 8, They did not want to return my security deposit and because I have Section 8 and moved out on the 5th they have to reimburse Section 8 $798. Something they don't want to do.
Lani Properties charges false late charges, and kicks little kids out onto the streets.
They are a fraudulent groups of career criminals and they are going to be on the news one day about all the fraud they are committing.
