I was on the Vineyards "waiting list" for months. I called several times about getting an apartment. I am a well paid, responsible young female that patiently waited on the "waiting list" but as soon as an apartment opened up I never got a call. On the other hand, some guy moves here from out of town and gets the apartment right away even though I'd been on the "waiting list" for months. She says she respects the waiting list, she's lying.

You are lucky. Those apartments are way overpriced. Save your money and find somewhere better.

Those apartments are no way welfare apartments, they are very high priced for this area in my opinion. There are other places that are not as expensive that are very nice.

they are trying to weed out the Hispanics because every time they move in here there is problems..not all are bad but a disproportionate number of them are
now,,its east to say I'm raciest,,but maybe the Hispanic community should take a look at themselves and the way the act and maybe people would be more accepting of them

Do you think everyone is on welfare....Good god find something better to do with your life than put people down. Take your misery and lock yourself in your room and scream in a damn pillow or something!!! Stop bashing people you dont know!

Maybe the guy was on the waiting list too, but ahead of you on it.

He wasn't. I know the guy personally and I know he wasn't on the waiting list before me. I know he wasn't even in the area.

How many prior landlords have you had trouble with?

I personally have had no prior issues with landlords. Like I said I have been extremely responsible with all of my housing and have plenty of good references to back me up. But this woman was never my landlord so she didn't know me that well. She didnt even give me the chance to apply.

My main issue is that she told me on a few occasions that she strictly follows the waiting list but I know this not to be true through the experience I have had. I have no idea what reason she would have to discriminate against me except for maybe my age? But I think that the idea of a waiting list is just something they use to weed people out and make them seem unavailable or highly desirable.

But truly I think they are slightly overpriced for the size of the apartment and the amenities. It's just a shame it is terribly difficult to find a decent apartment in this area with all the slum lords and shitty college housing. I just think it was wrong of her to turn me down several times for no aparent reason and tell me how strongly she follows the waiting list when clearly she doesn't.

The apartment manager probably sensed you were a major pain the ass and didn't want to rent to you. Duh.

Confront her with this information and then report back your findings. Its the only way to find out for sure whats really going on.

My big question to you would be, why do you have to move? Why do you want to move to a place that you don't seem to like in the first place. I would also be curious to know how fast this property owner called their lawyer and filed a suit against you for harassment, slander and defamation of character. They probably have already contacted the Topix administrator for you to be removed from posting. You will also be paying a fine for your stupidity. It sounds like you need to get a life, not just move somewhere you obviously don't belong and are not wanted.

There could be a possibility of discrimination. There are laws to protect people from this type of behavior, even in Fredonia. You may want to call the Division of Human Rights.
