Saved stepson $1100

April 26th, 2022 at 06:04 am

My stepson needed to move to a town with cheaper rent as he had a stroke and could no longer work and rents in the city are outrageous...he has cognitive inabilities now so we do a lot of all his paperwork as he can't process it properly anymore, although it is not done through the courts or anything. Anyway his ex landlord charged him over $1900 and she knew she had to go through me but didn't so when he got the bond saying that it was taken out we were all upset and once we found out the things she charged for I went into mad mode and started to sort it out...I threatened them with small claims court as she knew about his cognitive disabilities and that needed to go through me but didn't. They didn't tak it well but I am one not to fight for what is right...we figured he would owe around $800 as he had to pay rent till someone else moved in etc but not over $1900...well this week we finally got where they said they would refund $1100 so it is down to the $800 that we said he should hopefully that will be refunded soon and we can be done with them...but glad to be able to save him money...however the owner is not happy and nor should he be!!  

Would you have done the same thing or just let it be??

    I think you did the right thing. It is predatory to attempt to cheat anyone, but especially someone who has lost cognitive ability. How despicable. If your stepson did not have a capable person looking out for his best interests, they'd have gotten away with taking his money.

    I am so glad you were able to help

    I like to think that karma works in situations like these & that people don’t get away with taking advantage of others. I dislike when people don’t act fairly because they think they can get away with it. I’m glad that you were able to settle this issue, but how many more has she cheated?

    Thankyou it was finally paid and settled with them they ended up paying $1151 so my stepson only ended up paying $820 which is what we expected to glad that saga is over
