Complaint / review text:
I signed an agreement with Remax realtor on 9/10/15 with the understanding the unit would be ready by October 1,2015. It was not. I had vacate my last apt to move into this unit. Because it was not ready I had to put things in storage which cost me money. I contacted the realtor asking when the unit would be ready. Realtor pretty much stated he thought the 5th of Oct and he would prorate rent. Realtor then requested that I get a cashier's check for rent and deposit. He also requested that I get all utilities moved to my name and I did and that too cost me. The unit was still not ready and I paid him. He did not give me the keys upon receiving my money. When I asked when I would get the keys he did not return calls or text.
When going to unit I met up with the owner of unit and requested a key. This was on the 7th of Oct. When I went into unit the cabinets were not finished, stove in the middle of kitchen not hookup, the tile was lifting and the backyard full of weeds. It was at that point that I decided I did not want the unit since the realtor did not abide by the agreement. When I asked if I could just leave and get reimbursed for the unit, the realtor told me If I left I would still be liable for the unit since I signed the lease for a year. I did let realtor know that that was not right since all was not complete. Realtor told me he would give me back money for the days unit was not complete. I told him, "No I just wanted out of the agreement." Realtor has been difficult and unprofessional. I have lost sleep, money, days of work due to all of this ordeal. Realtor claims he is looking for a tenant to rent the unit. Until then I am stuck.
