My new property manager finally got the keys back from the previous management company. Nevertheless, there are some ongoing money issues between me and the previous management. First, the current tenant didn't know the takeover (they lied about it), and he wrote the money orders for May 2016 rent payment payable to the previous management. Second, I have some leftover balance in their company's account (rent collection from January to April 2016, $1000 reserve and $400 deposit). Total balance due to me is around $3500. My new manager has been calling them, emailing them, texting them, etc, but no use. Noted that the previous management has an "inactive" status with TREC. Also, their rating is F with BBB. Honestly, I don't care about all that. All I want is to get my $3500 back. I have thought of suing them at a small claims court, file a complaint to TREC and file a complaint with BBB.
"F" rated businesses are not likely to respond to more complaints and ratings.
You could sue in JP Court. You could also try to find a Consumer Law attorney to investigate handling this as a DTPA action where attorney's fees are recoverable.
