My fiance and I finally finished the appellate process for our case against this company. We we're awarded judgement in our favor of $3600.Joan Lord, the owner is a deceitful person who put our family in danger knowingly. She placed us in a property, only for us to realize upon moving in there was no hot water, hidden black mold in the apartment, the basement, and the upstairs apartment, and multiple sources of lead exposure through paint that was chipping, cracked, peeling, and bubbling. (I have photographic evidence of all of this.) She refused to provide us with a lead inspection certificate, would not make any repairs, and upon our moving out she did not return our security deposit or the five months of rent we had paid upfront upon signing our lease. I was pregnant, and also had a toddler age two. My two year old daughter had elevated lead levels from staying only two days in the place. Joan Lord was non sympathetic, and only wanted to keep our money. Luckily, the judge didn't fall for her lies. She is continuing to rent the mentioned apartment to anyone who pays the security deposit and first month's rent, with personal knowledge that she will not be held accountable. The structure can not be deemed uninhabitable and condemned because the inspectors "do not deal with mold". These renters are unaware of the dangers on the property, as they are hidden behind locked doors.Stay away from this company!
