Tell us has your experience with this business or person been good? What's this?
Mount Prospect Place Apartments flood on an anual basis. This company makes their money by renting out soggy moldy apartments. After you move out they then sue you for damages.

Instaed of FIXING the problem they let you live in TOXIC mold and SEWAGE never telling you that you are breating in TOXIC FUMES! IT CAN happen to you!!!

I am being sued for over five thousand dollars and I amnot the only one!!! DO NOT RENT FROM THESE PEOPLE!! They do not care about the people that they rent to they have had this problem for over 20 years and no one will do anything to make them fix these problems!!

Not only have we lost everything that we owned but now they want us to pay for moving out!!

I am a real person but am afraid of what they will

What are you getting sued for?

Is your landlord suing you for breaking a lease? If so, they are obligated to "mitigate damages", which means as soon as they knew you were going to break your lease (notify them in writing), they are supposed to make efforts to re-rent the unit and find another qualified rent-paying tenant. Once that happens, you are off the hook, they cannot collect double rent. You should do everything you can to re-rent the unit as well. If there is a 20 year history of abuses at this complex, there must be other unsatisfied current and former tenants. See if you can round up a few and talk to a lawyer as a group. Mold is a "hot" topic in landlord litigation right now, some landlords are getting sued for millions, insurance rates are skyrocketing for liability claims against landlords. What kind of flooding was it? Plumbing or mother nature? Some damages would be covered under your renter's insurance, not the landlord. $5,000 is a lot of money. It might be time to hire legal help to protect your credit and help you through this. Good luck!
