Thanks for the link.. Right along the line I expected. That's a shame. They claim to provide affordable housing for wise county, terrier are going to treat the citizens like that? What a shame. Well I would rather live at home with my family then line the pockets of a theif such as that. Down right disgraceful.

I dont advise anyone to rent from them he ripped one of my friend out of alot of money on a property in norton va that she and her husband were renting to own from this company..They had to move and everything due to the septic tank being under the mobile home and the health dept wouldnt allow them to fix it and stated that there were not any permits for this home to be on that land to begin with and they lost alot of money on that place. I had actually talked to her about it on facebook cuz i was goin to ask about renting it myself and she told me the whole issue with this place and how he did them and I wouldnt rent from them for nothing after this horror story.

This sounds terrible. Leave to a lawyer to molest the law and allow him self to steal from the poor. BUT it's ok. Because its legal! What a load of crap. I will stay far far away from this place and advise everyone that I hear ask, to do the same.

I rent from them and have no problems at all. Greg Gilbert is very down to earth and the women is his office are super friendly. The people that work for him go above and beyond to help me anytime something is wrong at my property. I don't know the story with the other people that have had issues with him, but he is a no nonsense kind of landlord and he clearly states that on his website. He wants you to pay your rent and pay it on time and take care of your property, I dont think that is too much to ask of a landlord. If you do these things you have no problems with him.

My family almost rented from them a couple of years ago. I am glad that we didn't. If you haven't read the portion of their website designed to attract home owner clients (under property management), and you are considering renting from them, read that part. Here is a quote from it:

"We will candidly inform you up front that we are aggressive to the point of being obnoxious in the collect of rents. We have an absolute "NO EXCUSE" policy regarding the late payment of rent. Our best description of a tenant who pays late is an "EX-TENANT."

Rents are due on the 1st of the month, are late on the 6th (with collection efforts beginning and late fees assessed) and delinquent tenants are served court eviction papers on the 12th, without exception."

What is someone goes into the hospital? There are several hundred 'what ifs' that could come into play here. If this jerk off is serious, there will be a special place in hell for him.

It's funny to me that you are all so mad that he expects you to pay your rent on time. He clearly states on his website that "they are a no-nonsense company" so basically that means they don't want to hear any excuses about why you can't pay your rent. You read the lease agreement and sign on the dotted line, if you think it it too harsh, then you should never have signed it! I am glad he tells me up front exactly what will happen on what date if I don't do this or that, instead of telling me one thing and doing another like everyone else in this town...... but I guess if he did that he would be your hero. The fact that he is honest and forthcoming is a mystery to you all..... it really amazes me. Grow up, be responsible, pay your rent when it's due and you don't agree to something that you can't do, and you wouldn't have to worry about it. It's your fault just as much as it is his..... you signed the lease too.

Listen wow it doenst seem that the ppl are mad over the fact of paying rent but for the way he goes about his whole process! And sounds like wow is one of the many "WORKERS" he has living in one of his rental properties and of course they dont have to worry about their rent being late cuz They dont have one to pay!

No, actually I am not employed by Fig Enterprises. I just think that it is ridiculous that people quote a lease that they read and signed, with emphasis on the part about being no-nonsense, and assume that because someone actually thinks that this company does nothing wrong they must work for them. If you went to their company website and saw what they were about if you didn't agree with the way they conducted business, why did you sign a lease with them? Let me answer that for you..... so you would have something to bitch about. Just like everyone else in this town. The owner is a straight forward business man, and I for one appreciate his honesty and his respect for his clients. I do live in one of the rental properties and I pay rent on time, therefore I don't have to worry about what day eviction notices are served. And you can say what you want, I know people on here are mad because he is not leniant when it comes to being late with rent. That's why they say...what if someone goes into the hospital, etc, there are a million reasons why rent could be late....yeah. Here is number one. You are sorry! And want everyone to buy your sorry excuses! Don't sign a lease if you don't agree to the terms, especially not with a lawyer! Genius!
