Perverts in my Bedroom going through my underwear drawer
My roommates have locks on their bedrooms for privacy I did not have one so I put one in. After a walk through inspection I was notified by My House Property that they could not get in to my room. They sent out someone to replace my bedroom lock. It looks like its their policy that all the locks on their rentals and the bedrooms are on one master key. That means if a master key got into some perverts hands he would have accesses to all the bedrooms that My House Properties rents. What happen to the renters privacy? I sometimes wonder when I get home if someone has been going through my underwear drawer or not. The lock cost me $9.00 and they charged me $60.00 for lock replacement. Is this legal or even morally right? They cant deny this because otherwise they would have reply to this review

If you are a possible tenant, RUN!!!! Don't lease any of the properties they manage. TRUST ME, you will regret it. They will be semi-decent at first but once you are a tenant, if you need maintanance, they will take forever! If you are 2 days late on your rent they start to threaten with Eviction. If you call them for anything, they won't call you back! If you are an owner, DO NOT let them manage your property; they are the worst, instead of trying to work with your tenants they will run them off to collect more commission from you! YOur better off leasing your property yourself!

Watch out for these people and consider your deposit a gift, never to be seen again. Either shifty business people, or very poor bookkeeping here. Consider my experience with them: I am a homeowner in another state, and I rented my house out so I could move and attend school at CSU. I know how important it is to keep a place in good condition, pay on time, etc. To begin, I paid on time EVERY month, always kept the grounds cut, watered, fertilized, re-seeded, etc... I made sure batteries were replaced, filters changed, light bulbs working, etc. Never had a problem. Until, that is, I moved out. I gave my notice by mail and in person with a follow-up phone call. They told me they got my notice and emailed me a list of things to do on move out. I did all the things on the list and more. After having the carpets professionally cleaned, cleaning the house to a much higher standard than it was upon move-in and moving out on the last day of the month, I have never heard from them again! I have left messages, sent emails and had a relative visit the office in person. I have never heard from them. It is now been 6 weeks. Heads up, renters! I did everything right and it looks like these people are just crooks.

I had no problem with My House while I lived there, but after moving out, they shorted me on my security deposit for reasons that were completely unfounded, even in the pictures that they sent me in a final walk through. They charged me for normal wear and tear on the apartment and then charged me for bills that they never gave me when I lived there, even though I asked them on a monthly basis what I owed them. I would be taking this issue to court if I thought it would be worth it for the money. I would not recommend renting from My House if you want any fair amount of your security deposit back, which, in relation to other places in Fort Collins, was quite substantial for a one bedroom apartment.

These people are a disgrace to property managers!! Forget that their website emergency handle! We had a ton of snow and our heat was out and it took them 3 FREAKING DAYS to get out to fix us!!!! They won't talk to you on the phone...its all by email. They are liars and they don't obey the contracts that they expect us to abide by. There is a ton more of stuff that has happened, but trust me and do yourself a favor and go else where. No house is perfect enough to deal with these as@holes

My House Property Services took over management of my apartment after I'd lived there for a year under a different (and better) property management company. They upped the rent $100 dollars without discussing it with me, and when I addressed the issue they said it was because lawn care was included; lawn care AND snow removal were included under the other management. They repeatedly failed to contact me regarding releasing, internet service, and other concerns, and several times tried to blame me for the lack of communication (luckily I'd printed out and brought emails to them as proof). They also took money out of my security deposit for things that didn't need repair and not for the things I would have expected. My experience with My House was the worst of any of my rental companies in Fort Collins, and I've rented from five different people. If you rent from My House, be prepared to fight with them over everything, because they'll leave you no other options.
