Property had prior furniture wear issues; Owner arbitrarily deducted from Deposit.

  • 2 of 5

My wife and I were the last renters. We are retirees in our early 70s who used this condo for 2 months while we researched and purchased a new retirement home in the Ft Myers area to be near our grand-children.

We were very committed to careful handling of the Owner's furnishings. We took pictures on Day 1 especially of wear spots on furniture and walls; but kept them for our files only. Wish now we had complained early; but we felt we could roll with living conditions since we expected to buy a new home within 60 days.

OWNER charged us with "some wear" on a sofa during our 2 month stay and withheld 40% of our Deposit. OWNER stopped all communications ..... text messaging and phone calls. Through our many follow-up text messages and phone calls, we sent photo evidence of the prior wear ...... with no acknowledgement or response.

Our Advice:

Use caution; take pictures and secure early direct acknowledgement from this Absentee OWNER ....who relies on 3rd party inspections only from a local firm when assessing damage and monies that are arbitrarily withheld from the Deposit.

Owner's Response: I have been a landlord for 28 years. Unfortunately some tenants cause damage, some unintentional or intentional; I have experience both over the years. That is what a security/damage deposit is intended for. 95% of the time we have NO problems with our tenants and return 100% of deposits! The condo building requires me to put up a $1000 deposit to guard against damage to the building, doors, pool, parking garage, hallways, furnishings, or anything else tenant might damage in the common areas, because they have had these problems in the past. Then we have the potential damage to the unit itself or the furnishing. I personally inspected the unit before and after this tenants stay, as well as sent him pictures of the damage. Upon the completion of his stay he sent me this txt message “YOUR CONDO WAS A VERY CONVENIENT SET UP WHILE WE PERFORMED OUR HOUSE HUNTING EXERCISE” “BEST REGUARDS” NO complaints or mention of any problems. His unhappiness only started when we informed him we need to complete a cleaning and inspection prior to returning his deposit, after he vacated. He obviously did not count on me scheduling a unplanned vacation to clean and inspect the property! We have had that occur before, where damage was not discovered until a few months later. He then started contacting me daily via txt, email, and phone about the deposit refund, literally daily for weeks. Can you say guilty conscious? I believe he was hoping to force a refund before the issues were discovered. And once I traveled to the property, 1000 miles and cleaned and inspected we told him about the damage/excessive wear on the sofa, “water damage spot on arm like where you would sit a drink and leather peeling off the sofa fabric in 5 or 6 places after his stay” not normal wear for a newer sofa. The amount retained for the damage to the sofa was minimal and a fraction of the cost of the sofa, or a replacement. It’s kind of ironic that I just received a settlement of my son’s college apartment today, in which the landlord of my sons college apartment held $1689.65 of his deposit for cleaning kitchen, steam cleaning carpets, cleaning bathroom, patching walls, and replacing blinds. I believe I was quite fair only charging 40% of my tenants deposit instead of 100% to cover a portion of the cost of a new sofa. We sent the tenant a settlement statement with pictures of the damage and a refund of partial deposit 60%.

Amenities in the new and fabulous condo community include zero entry pool, spa, fitness facility, media room, and business center. The community is made up of 131 residences spread over 7 stories. Features views of Billy's Creek and the Caloosahatchee River.

You will find yourself surrounded by lush foliage, bouquets of flowers by Mother Nature and water everywhere, including the Gulf of Mexico and the Caloosahatchee River. Water sports, golfing, gourmet dining, history, art museums, and theater are just a small part of what Fort Myers has to offer:

Inventor Thomas Alva Edison spent winters at his nearby home and laboratory on McGregor Boulevard. Both are now public museums, as is the grand bungalow next door, home of Edison's friend automobile magnate Henry Ford. Stately royal palms, some 60 feet tall, stand guard along McGregor Boulevard. Today, Fort Myers is known as the 'City of Palms'.

Within walking distance to the sights and sounds of downtown Fort Myers including restaurants, cafe's, boutiques, business events and much more in the historic river district area! The river opens into the Gulf Of Mexico at Sanibel Island only a short boat ride or drive away. Downtown district has an periodic Art Walk, a trolley that picks up in front of the complex, and verious other events held in the downtown area.

Kayak Storage and Launch Facility! If sufficient interest is demonstrated a club could be formed and a calendar of tours made available
