My son lives in Glendale Ca. with his other mom for shook and visits me on weekends. When he comes he plays in the play area right out my door, usually soccer with the kids in my complex. We have a new Manager who had without my knowledge last November told the kids they could not play there because a window had been broken and they had to go to the park next door which was not safe. I looked outside and saw my son was gone called him and went to the park immediately where the boys from the complex were including my son were playing soccer.

In March of 2013 I rented a townhouse through a property management company. I pay my rent through a direct deposit on website. On May 1, 2015, I went online and paid my rent. The system was unusually slow as the company is updating it. A week or so later sent me an email and then a notice that I owed them $100 late fees because my rent which is due on the first of every month hit their systmen at 12:04 AM on May 2, 2015.

I moved in with a guy in the police academy. A week later his mom comes over and says oh you have to leave we rented room out to someone else AFTER I already moved in. They refused my money and I wasn't able to just leave after just moving in. She did not live there. So they started to harass me. Went through my room, private stuff and locking me out of house. They went and tried to force me to sign bogus documents and tried to file a frivolous lawsuit. I had every legal right to be there but because it was so bad I had to flee as soon as possible.

On May 14, 2015 I contacted the Better Business Bureau for help with a concern about late fees that the property management company I pay rent to charged me. After the BBB contacted the Management, the company retaliated against me and served my 84 year mother, my daughter and me with a 60 day notice on May 19, 2015 to move out by July 18, 2015. They stated to the BBB that I have registered excessive maintenance requests I believed that I was within my legal rights to inquire with the BBB and my obligation to let the company know of impinge nance issues but it seems that I am not.
