COMPLAINT : Privacy Violation
Fair Resolution according to renter :
  1. I want them to discontinue the practice of entering my leased space without proper notice immediately.
  2. I would like information as to why my repeated attempts to contact the manager via e-mail (as I have done since 2009) have been totally ignored. How am I supposed to feel secure if I am not permitted to contact the manager unless I file a complaint with some company?
  3. I would like an apology for their blatant disrespect of my privacy.
  4. I would like instructions outlining how I should request service when my e-mail messages are being ignored by the manager.

Address               :   3110 Fallen Oaks Ct. Apt. 511
City, State - Zip   :   Rochester Hills, Michigan - 48309.


The landlord sent me an e-mail message (9/18/13) indicating that "Preventative Maintenance" would be done in my apartment. The message offered the option of making an appointment to have the work done. I replied with a request for an appointment (9/18/13), which I have ALWAYS done during my residency here (over four years). When I did not receive a reply to my request for an appointment, I sent the manager another message (9/25/13) requesting an appointment and provided a day/date that would be convenient for me and indicated that I would make other arrangements to accommodate River Oaks if that time was not feasible. The next day (9/26/13) I received an emergency telephone call from my burglar alarm service indicating that my apartment had been entered and the motion detector sensed and intruder in my home. When I returned home, I found a note on the floor near the entrance from River Oaks which indicated that "Preventative Maintenance was performed." To date, I have not received any correspondence from River Oaks relative to the unannounced entry to my leased space, them leaving my alarm blaring, or their lack of response to my numerous requests for an appointment. Had I known that my request would not be honored, I could have made arrangements to secure my personal property, including my elderly dog and disarmed the burglar alarm. Since River Oaks offered the option of setting up an appointment, as they always have to my knowledge, I had no reason to assume that they would enter my leased space without my knowledge. I feel that my right to privacy has been violated. I am very concerned for my safety and River Oaks has eroded that by ignoring my efforts to secure myself and my belongings (burglar alarm). It is very disconcerting that River Oaks has violated my privacy in this way and have not even acknowledge this severe breach of trust.

From Date IP Address Response
Renter Oct 7, 2013 1.I would like an explanation as to why the landlord has yet to respond to any e-mail messages sent to them by me. I have communicated with them via e-mail since my initial move-in in 2009. They send me e-mails routinely, but have not responded to my messages. I sent TWO requests to set up an appointment to have "routine maintenance" performed in my apartment. The manager neglected to respond to either written request, authorized an breach of my privacy and has yet to address my written concerns in this manner--as if I were nit repeatedly sending e-mail message to the manager. How am I supposed to feel secure in this environment when the manager refuses to even acknowledge my written messages? I would like an explanation. An apology for the disrespect and violation would be nice, but I will not hold my breath.
