Does it really take a promise to call the building inspector to get them to come take care of their shit?

The bottom of my toilet is leaking what appears to me to be blackwater, its sinking into the floor from water damage, my water bill has been 100 dollars every 2 months (for 2 people who dont use that much water) and there are trees growing out of my gutters.

i dated a girl whose house had black mold in it and was eventually condemned. i think they got reimbursed a part of their money + security deposit, iirc.

Black water leaking from the base of the toilet isn't going to affect your water bill. It's just your feces water getting past the wax ring, but it'll only appear after you flush. Just a little feces water.

If you hear the toilet running for no reason then there is a problem somewhere at the top of the toilet at the flushy area.

Does Preiss own the place or do they just manage it for the owner? If I was the owner I'd be pretty fucking pissed if I found out that my subfloor was rotting due to the management company not replacing a $5 wax ring. They should know what's going on if they're paying the management company to manage it and Preiss isn't taking care of this stuff. I'd contact them if you find out that it isn't owned by Preiss.

One phone call to preiss then call inspections, that is a health hazard.

as fucked up as it sounds, the way raleigh has the ordinances now

you would get more attention from them if you threw a kegger than called building inspections, they get a bigger fine for you throwing parties than if you have feces infested water running through your residence

I'm not sure why anyone would ever rent from the Preiss Company, after all of the negative things that have been said about them on the internet...

rented a house from them at the coast (yes they have property everywhere). 2 story house with the first floor completely gutted (been that way for years now), screened in porch minus the screens, bugs like you wouldn't believe, and no fucking mailbox.

a buddy of mine who is a building inspector for havelock hung out at the house one afternoon and made a list of 17 things that weren't up to code and advised we not rent the property again. i called the vp of preiss company and he basically told me "i'm not fixing anything. it's an old beach cottage. deal with it"

never again.

Show up with your lease and explain how they are breaking it. Take pictures and then head to a lawyer. I had to have a good little sit down with the company we are renting from now. They did not understand that promptly didn't mean when they had time because they were busy with other problems.

thats what i don't get, they've had a terrible reputation since at least spring 97 when i started at NCSU, so i'd imagine that any amount of research would yield enough horror stories to keep me away.

i've never rented from them myself, but a lot of it is because of all he bad things i've been forced to hear about them while in raleigh and on tww

I never had trouble with Preiss company. In fact the one time our A/C went out they had it fixed within 12 hours on a weekend.

However I've found that people that use autodraft on their monthly bill get treated a lot better

I rent from them now and I'm seeing more slacking on their part too. I havent' really had alot of trouble out of them, but I'll be out after next semester and move on.

The only qualm I've ever had with them is when my internet jack died. I asked them to fix it. They said they weren't responsible for that and to call the ISP. So, I did that. Made the mistake of calling the Customer Support number and ended up talking to some guy I could barely understand about how to do ipconfig and iprelease. After banging my head on the wall from talking to that guy, I found a number a little higher up the chain of command, called and got a repair guy to come fix it.

He told me my ethernet jack was broken on my laptop and that's why I couldn't get online. I had to practically twist his arm to get him to check the freakin' wall jack. He finally did and said "Oh....looks like your jack is dead." I swear, if ppl just listened to me in the first place things would've gone so much smoother! Well, when the repair man finished fixing my jack, he said "Yeah, equipment out here gets fried often because these apartments aren't grounded well and the Preiss company refuses to fix the issue. So whenever there's a storm, something goes down."

Also, the ISP hyperlink internet is certainly pitiful as far as bandwidth, but they also monitor your connection for torrent traffic and will cut off your internet service due to "malicious content on your connection" if they sense it.

You guys have to realize that in many cases price may just be managing the property and repairs are at the discretion of the owner.

^^ha, had to join to defend your craphole of a company?

I think people have called... and your company did nothing. just admit it, you're only worried about that dollar, and as long as renters pay and you can swindle new renters in, you don't give a shit.
