Disgusted with over-priced and moldy slum properties. One property didn't have flooring in the bathroom, just a subfloor. Apparently meeting building codes isn't a top priority for Terry. Terry Flood himself harassed my fiance by text because we decided not to rent an over-priced tiny house. Extremely unprofessional!!!
DO NOT EVER EVER EVER EVER rent from Terry Flood. If it is too late and you are already in contract with this sleezeball, DOCUMENT EVERYTHING HE EVER SENDS YOU! Take pictures of EVERYTHING down to the smallest detail. Read your contract carefully. He will screw you over anyway he can and then sue you for ridiculous amounts of money that he will not use to fix his dumpy houses. He will just rent it to some other poor unfortunate soul and pocket the money. We messed up big time ever dealing with this shady character. There is no justice and how the court system has not figured out his scam yet, I will never know.
Rating him with one star, is one star too many.
He is an absolute slumlord. When I moved out I left the place in better condition (Cleaner, Smelling better) than when I moved in, and he still kept my deposit for reasons unknown and he couldn't defend himself for it. I had the carpets professionally cleaned, I turned in the receipt and then was charged for carpet re-cleaning. When I moved in I had requested the carpets be re-cleaned because of the bad pet odor from the tenant before me and they refused to have them cleaned again.
Also, I was charged to put in new air filters and replacing the batteries in the smoke detectors. Under Missouri Revised Statute, section 535.300.1 precludes withholding of any security deposit for costs associated with ordinary wear and tear ... so against Missouri law he kept my deposit for normal wear and tear items and said he would refuse to give back my deposit.
Also, my house was broken into, I reported it to him because I was going to need to have the garage door and locks and changed and he didn't get back to me until days later, after I had called multiple times.
This guy is absolute scum.
In response to Mr. Flood's post of 12.12.12. I've simply edited my original review from November 2012.
Mr. Flood, you don't provide produce (that's food). We rented from Flood-Conn Enterprises for 2-plus years.
Anyway, I've never hidden who I am. My name is Margaret Walker. The others that have posted are limited by how they register on the site. That's how their names then appear. Up until now, and there have been plenty of reviews throughout the internet, you and/or people that work for you have posted positive reviews as tenants, but then again post responses as employees of your's. That's questionable. Unless that's you, Terry, then you haven't had the courage to respond in a respectful and honorable manner. You'd be mindful to watch how you describe those who aren't pleased with your business practices (laziness, lack of responsibility, etc.).
I have yet to meet someone who didn't receive a property from you in less than desirable condition. The list is made and turned in to your offices. Then, nothing is addressed. You then blame these items on the tenant, and ask that they do repairs that you were unwilling to do yourself. What is the reasoning for your MOVE IN report clause?
If you have pictures after someone's moved out, we should assume you have pictures upon move in. Would that not be practical? Or, does that not serve your business practices, sir?
Every item I've stated in all written correspondence to you is factual. PLEASE GO TO FACEBOOK AND ASK TO FRIEND FLOOD-CONN. I've included many pictures, correspondence to you and your attorney, etc.
Every item we asked to have repaired from the moment we took possession to the time we turned over the keys, was never even responded to (with the exception of a small plumbing issue where your repairman used black electrical tape to attach pipes under the kitchen sink; and using duct tape to address the air conditioner).
You don't intimidate me, Mr. Flood. The thought of seeing you in court doesn't bother me in the least. I've responded to your attorney, and provided the Registered Agent for the owners, Flood-Conn Enterprises, Robert Conn, with copies of ALL correspondence.
The clauses within your lease are contradictory and misleading to say the least.
These people are horrible. There's a site on Facebook, Flood-Conn, where you can leave your comments/compliments and criticisms: Worst landlords I've ever heard of or dealt with. If you push to get needed repairs (one item was mold that continuously returned and they wouldn't even touch it, another was rotten window sills leaving two to three inch gaps to the outside; the list goes on and on), you get thrown out. He lied about the conditions of the house, and we have pictures to prove it. We have him in writing stating that he, his employees and contractors that work for him attempted to make calls/appointments, and the kids just yelled and hung up on them. We can prove by phone records that these calls never took place. He's discredited himself with lies we can substantiate. Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Mr. Flood, you're a bully. Shame on you.
I believe we teach our children that lack of intervention when something so very
wrong is going on, shows a true lack of compassion, heart and soul.

Let me tell you about my experience with Terry Flood. My boyfriend and I rented a home at 3606 N Wabash Ave. Because my boyfriend did not have a job, we were required to pay and additional $1000.00 deposit and the full lease up front. ($13,200) Not a problem. When we went to move in, they didn't have the correct keys, there were no screens on the bedroom windows, the basement smelled of pet urine. When we turned these items in on the move in walk-through, they were never addressed as well as the maintenance calls while we lived there all went unanswered and not addressed.
The maintenance man did come over to give us new keys ONE SET and while he was there he made a racist comment. FAIR HOUSING VIOLATION!!!!!!!!!!!
3 months before the end of our lease, my boyfriend died. I gave notice to vacate the home at the end of the lease. I hired a crew to come in and make sure the house was in better shape than when we moved in. I scheduled a move out walk through with Terry Flood. At the walk through Terry pointed out BS items- 3 light bulbs, which were already out when we moved in. He claimed that the carpet had not been cleaned-it had and was in better shape then when we moved in. It finally didn't smell like pet urine.
We had lived there for one year, 4 months out of that year, we didn't even live in the house...we were travelling. We hung 3 pictures with small nails..that was it.
Today when I get my move out disposition, I was charged over $735.00 in nonsense charges.
Luckily, everything was video tapped, (even the walk through) and I will be taking him to court.
You should be very careful when you rent from Terry Flood and document EVERYTHING!!!
Also, if you are wrongly charged for items you can sue for 2X the amount of your deposit.
I would like anyone that has had a bad experience to please contact me so that I can get a statement for court.
He is a heartless opportunist and he shouldn't be able to conduct business like this.

First, my credit rating is impeccable and I am NOT a litigious individual. However, if Im pushed too far I push back. I must say the following account was very personally gratifying.
Second, if I could give Terry Flood a negative star rating I would.
I personally rented a house from Terry Flood in the Northland and after reaching an impass on 15-18 persistent move in problems, I ended taking him to court and winning. I first sued Terry Flood and was informed by a very polite Judge that, in fact this was impossible since Terry Flood was merely a property manager, not the owner. Terry Flood's attorney counter sued me for attorney fees since I had sued the wrong individual. The judge apparently had seen Mr. Flood a bit too much because he smirked and threw the attorney's counter claim out. Yay, me.
I then reluctantly sued the owner of the home and won. After the ruling was handed down Mr Flood would not acquiesce to the court's orders and I was able to walk in to his office and embarass him in front of his employees.
After moving out another case was brought to the light through the course of my residence with Flood and I went to court and won another case.
It comes down to a few things:
1.) Ask around and you'll find this guy is a crook, thief and liar (evidenced by my court verdict) that is well known in the greater KC area.
2.) Ask around some more and youll find the same thing
May I add that I gave to the judge a dozen code violations including a detached two car garage that Terry Flood didnt even pull a permit for. Out of code, no permits, phones didnt work, etc.
This guy is no Bob Vila, but he sure is a ""Richard.""

Terry Flood posts positive comments under reviews like these for himself. Check out yahoo reviews and you'll find him there using the name Bill. He creates fictious names in order to leave comments falsely presenting good experiences as a tenant. In reality I was unable to find ONE positive review from any of his previous tenants that wasn't falsely created by himself or one of his employees (reference comments by Marilyn and Mark O- all fakes). Terry Flood does not care about his tenants and his properties are unhealthy and unlivable. Terry Flood DOES NOT respond to maintenance calls in a timely fashion and often does not respond to maintenance calls at all if he believes its going to cost him some expense. He tries to violate former tenants by charging them for move out expenses and conditions that exsisted prior to them moving in and dabbles in dishonest practices. This guy is a crook and its in your best interest not to rent from him.
I read these reviews in amazement. I have rented from Terry Flood Real Estate a couple of times, so has my sister for a combined total of over 5 years. His lease does require the tenant to have carpets cleaned when they leave. All you have to do is follow and comply with the requirements of the lease and you will receive your full security deposit return as I did. If you don't follow the agreement then you can't blame anyone but yourself. I have to laugh at the person who said their mail came back address unknown. This is a business for heaven's sake and has been in the same location for many years if their mail came back it is beause it was not addressed properly. People are amazing.
Renter beware, they are one of the shadiest renting operations that I have ever dealt with. They make you pay the down payment to even see if application will be approved. After paying 600 deposit with the application. I was told on a Monday that everything was good to go, all they had to do was talk to present landlord. Then wednesday get a call and say Ok we can get the house But we need additonal 400 deposit., when we said no we cant afford another 400, that we will have to go look elsewhere. They are refusing to return my original 600 dollar deposit saying I was backing out. I told them no the original document that I signed was for 600, not 1000 deposit, that they changed terms. They still refused saying that they would work the rest of deposit over the months by us paying additional rent. I cant afford that either. Guess small claims here I come. By the way DAVID CLEVENGER is the agent on this. Hmm do we see a trend here.
Applicants had major credit issues and yes as a result the property owner did require an additional $400 security deposit in order to approv their application. The applicant agreed to the additional deposit and therefore we approved for the rental of the property. The application submitted by the applicant says clearly and specifically that if they are approved and later back out then they forfeit the deposits paid with the application. A few days after the applicant was given approval they notified this office that they had changed their mind and at that time they were reminded of their obligation contained in the application they submitted and signed. Unfortunately their complaint is sour grapes on their part for not complying with their obligations under the agreement. They haveno one to blame but themselves.

This company will attempt to nickel and dime you every step of the way. Not a lot of integrity. Withheld part of my deposit even after they said that everything was fine on the move out inspection. I would recommend that you find another company to do business with, because any interactions that you have with this company are likely to be negative.

This company clearly has too many properties and can't take care of the ones they have. I strongly urge everyone to run far far away and rent from someone else. My property is run down, can't pass city codes, and it takes days if not weeks to get anything repaired, and then it's shotty workmanship. Don't waste your money. And if you decide to rent from them, please read the lease very cafefully (I highly recommend you have a legal representative read it through before you sign).
I agree with the previous post. A friend and I recently looked into a property listed with Terry Flood, and David Clevenger was the agent. The the shrubs in front of the property had more personality than this man, and probably better customer service skills. Additionally, they required we pay the $800 deposit on the property before we could even apply, and when our co-signer backed out, making our application invalid, Terry Flood real estate refused to return our deposit. After speaking with an attorney, we learned that they have no legal right to withhold the deposit as no lease was signed, and will likely have to resort to small claims court to get our money back. Stay away from Terry Flood real estate!
