Hey guys, I am a young college student from Milwaukee, WI who attends the University of Wisconsin Milwaukee. Recently a friend and I have started a new website called Pick-A-Landlord Where you can rate your landlord or rental company. We are having trouble getting ratings in the system and could use any help possible. I know this might seem like spam but its not. I will not post about the site again. For those of you who check it out and sign-up I appreciate it and thank you for your support!

http://www.pickalandlord.com

Thank you,
Steven A.

This site should end up being very useful for other in the future.

I do not like this website at all this is poorly designed and I think they copied off someone else. I read an article in the Pittsburgh Post of two other people who designed a website first before these two students. Called landorslum.com Which to me appears very well designed and posted online first - so for all of you out there who want to rate your landlord I suggest that website instead.

Stay away from renting from Katz Properties. Save yourself the headache! They are rude and unprofessional. They will appear frequently when you do not want them to, but if there is a problem, they are nowhere to be found.

Yeah I checked out landorslum and it is poor at best. I found pickalandlord.com to be way more organized and interactive.

Kind of disappointing. I thought the site would let you post slumlords to warn other renters.

Don't rent from Chun Lee, they've got a property on Franklin Pl. that hasn't seen any sign of upkeep since I last lived there & before which was back in 2003. There's spray paint on the front of the house that has been there since 2006. Also, Bell Properties, headed by Nick Lawrence, an english guy. I almost ended up taking him to court but he ended up sending my security deposit to my attorney that I used. NEVER EVER EVER believe your landlord when they take out money for "wear & tear" or carpet cleaning or new blinds, broken light bulbs, dust (yeah, he actually mentioned that one) or new paint. That is all normal wear & tear. The ONLY thing you should have deducted from your security deposit are any damages you did to the place. Other than that, you should receive everything in full.

One more thing w/Bell Properties. Nick tried charging my neighbor for background checks that he was doing for potential renters to replace her. No way, no how. The guy is scum & he tries to act like a polite english man. Too bad for him he has no idea how our tenant laws are or he wouldn't have been stupid enough to try to take my security deposit for bulls*it things.

As a current renter in a Chun Lee property I completely agree - our place is also on the east side and we're moving out asap! They're NEVER available when we call. They lied to us about things in our rental when they showed us it - biggest issue was off-street parking - but since we didn't get it in our lease that we have two parking spots we couldn't do anything about it. So they either lied to us about it or they really didn't know that this unit only has one spot and the UPSTAIRS has two - either is a sign of a bad LL, how could they not know that? The house is falling apart (they said they'd take care of the major issues but haven't) and our upstairs neighbors are awful. The fine print in our lease says they automatically renew it after the original yr ends unless we contact them 45 days in advance - so now we have to pay for two places for being dumb enough to assume they'd call us and ask if we wanted to renew it.
Stay away from them. They only care about us paying the rent, not that we're happy with the place. You'll know when a landlord cares but unfortunately we had little experience when we chose this house.

Don't have a phone number for them but legally they have to give you all of your security deposit w/in I believe it's like 25 days or something like that. And if they don't give it all back, they have to provide an itemized list of why & what they took out of your deposit. They can NOT charge you for repainting, normal wear & tear, lightbulbs, blinds, etc. The ONLY thing they can charge for is if you seriously damaged something yourself in the apartment. They also cannot charge you for cleaning carpets. They can take late rent charges out of your security deposit so if that's the reason, make sure you get copies of all of the envelopes w/the timestamp from the post office. You legally have until the 5th of the month to pay your rent before they start charging so any time stamp on those envelopes up until the 5th of each month should not be charged.

I also rented from Chun Lee and found her terrible. They never fixed the things they said they would and when we went to sign the lease, it had a higher price than what was listed on Craigslist and she said I had seen it wrong. I proved I was right by showing her the listing and she said it was just a mistake and then refused to negotiate. She also had never mentioned I would have to pay a security deposit for my cats (which was also extremely high for cats) until we were signing the lease even though I had talked to her about my cats earlier and she said it was no problem. When I moved out, she was very rude to me and took away half of my pet security deposit even though there was no damage.

Never rent from Anthony Pullara. He is a lying italian man that has gone 4 months without correcting code violations in my unit. He broke the lease agreement within the first month of moving in, has bedbugs and fleas in units and refuses to tell people and pays his felony convicted handiman illegally under the table.
The worst experience I have ever had.
He also cuts hair at a place called Shear Perfection.
Avoid like the plaque.

Do not rent from Jeff Cockerham aka JMC Properties. He is a slumlord. Never fixes anything and will try and evict you for dumb things. All his properties are Drug Infested And Filthy. He is also a racist but rents to minorities smh. Be careful people.
