Tara Properties Management Rentals
About half of the way through the lease they asked us to move out early so the owners of the property could move back in. We had the worst time finding a place because they were giving us bad rental references. When we were finally approved for a different home we put a holding fee down on it. Only after we moved out did they tell me that we weren't obligated to move out before the lease. And somehow they found a way to take $2000 from our deposit even though we went out of our way to move out before the lease was up. I would never recommend this company.
It is unlawful for a landlord to retaliate and terminate your month to month rental lease -- without good reason -- I am angry with Tara Properties. We lived at Paragon Place, LLC for 3-years. Took very good care of the apartment -- cleaned the carpets twice a year, washed the windows, mowed the yard, reseeded with grass seed every year because when we moved in there was no grass at all and sand fleas had taken over. The place was ridden with bugs -- earwigs and sand fleas and silverfish -- we had pest control come out and spray -- but then Churchill & Associates filed bankruptcy, Paragon Place, LLC bought the property and Tara Properties took over managing the apartments -- they are not organized at all! The property manager signs documents to post on your door but has no idea what the document says or means -- had the audacity to complain because the owner wanted the doors painted but we weren't home to allow the painters in -- when the property manager was told that placing the Two Day--Notice of Entry on the door means that Tara Properties is responsible for ensuring the painters are allowed in -- not the tenants responsibility -- essentially Tara Properties insisted that we remain home so the doors could be painted. For three weekends, we left the apartment so the doors could be painted -- we presumed Tara Properties understood the documents they were posting on tenants doors. After I mentioned this to the property manager -- our month to month lease was terminated. It's all about the Benjamin's for rental property and property management in Oak Harbor. Essentially, Oak Harbor depends on transient military as 'cash cows.' If you are not from Oak Harbor -- you will soon know -- that you are not welcome. The locals want your money but not you in their town. Nepotism is at it's worst in Oak Harbor, Washington.
Absolute worst company I have ever dealt with. Employees are rude and they don't care about anything but getting their money. They refuse to help honest hard working people with special circumstances no matter how small they may be. I cleaned my house perfectly before moving out and they nit picked the tiniest details and charged me ridiculous amounts for them. A rental company in Washington state by law has 14 days to return your deposit and they will take every last second of those 14 days to get it back to you. I even gave them a cancelled check to get my deposit back through direct deposit because i didn't have a forwarding address at the time and they refused to use it even though it was an option on their paperwork. Steer very clear and stay away from Tara Properties.
