I rented from John Wishman and he is the worst landlord in the village of Depew.He never fixes anything.There is rats and other animals runnning around the properity that does take care of.He never does a walk and if he does he finds something wrong. He never gives you a security deposit back you have to take him to court.DO NOT RENT FROM THIS MAN UNLESS YOU HAVE A LAWYER

Lmao!!! I am so glad that someone else has voiced up about Dominic C Russo! This guy don't do a damn thing other than collect his rent. He claims he needs to "talk to the owner". He is a property manager! A property manager should keep the property up and report what work has been done to the property. DCR property managment is a joke. I now own my own property management company. My company manages about 150 properties in the Buffalo area. I would of never started my company if it werent for Mr. Russo. All of the properties my company manages are very well taken care of. My husband and I rented from Mr. Russo a while back and for about 2 months complained to him to repair things (the plumming, the heater and the foundation). We were only there for a few months and left. He promised to fix everything, but said he needed to speak to the owner first. Well public records showed that DCR property management owned the property! The one thing he always did, was come pounding, not knocking, but pounding on the door, on the first looking for the rent. If he would check his PO Box he would of found out the check had been mailed out already. Never once did he give a receipt. In New York state it is a law that the landlord gives you a receipt for every penny paid. If anyone is currently renting from this slumlod and would like help getting out of the death trap he has you living in let me know. I will give you a place I manage with no security deposit. There is no reason anyone should have to live in them conditions. We need ro stomp this POS into the ground! He should not be allowed to rent a crack pipe to crack head, let aline rent an apartment to a person!

Interesting comments from many contributors here...

However keep in mind many college kids looking to rent off campus get taken advantage of (See UB South and Canisius 'hoods).

Not looking to slander anyone but there was one notable one when I was in that position - "Bed Bug Doug" they called him

It's a good thing for you that you don't live in Alabama. I was expected to pay for future repairs and any damage made to the apartment I lived in along with any renovations that were needed by my landlady. I refused to sign the lease so renter beware. make sure you carefully read your renters agreement prior to signing.
It's just another scam you white folks tried to pull over me.
It was also amazing how my electric bill tripled after they converted their boxes from analog to digital. i would also like to know upon my investigating how my neighbors readings didn't even budge. They were all white by the way.

This is exactly what my folks needed and that was to prove that I couldn't make it on my own so they along with you nimrods who have been aiding them found various ways to force me to leave along with the hiring of Ms. Cassidy. Now I have to listen to my father rub it in my face how my crackhead brother is more independent then I am. he has to do this because he lied on his immigration papers and they have to reassure that the crackhead along with my step brothers don't run into any future problems.

structures dont destroy themselves. the city would like to place all the blame on the owners.
but in fact you cant have a slum without the stupid animals who inhabit it.
the problem is blacks., plain and simple.
the problem will not be corrected as long as there are blacks.
the same problem persists everywhere blacks live, everywhere on the globe.
if you want to make a difference, start by picking up garbage and calling the cops on the dope dealers.

Take your head out your ass and read a book for once, you're a joke! Can't believe how simple and ignorant some of you are. The world's going to Shit for sure with individuals that has a mind frame like yourself. Grow up!
