Davis and Paul bought the apartment complex I live in about six months ago. Immediately after they took over they let go of the groundskeeper. They didn't take out the trash for the first two months they were here. That service is included in our lease. Needless to say the place turned into a landfill after two to three weeks. There was a notice for water shut off in the first month. Of course when you call no one seems to know whats going on and they never call you back like they say they will. They did however manage to give us three random property inspections over that two month period. Last month they decided they were going to repair a garage door at the complex. Now the garage door has been removed and has been missing for a month. Homeless people and drug addicts have begun sleeping, using drugs, urinating and defecating in the garage frequently. I worry about the safety of the children here as well as people's belongings. I have sent them a letter about this myself. No response. The manager for this property seems to be here fairly often and I'm sure he's aware of this fact. Too bad his main priority seems to be harassing tenants. He has approached me several times telling me I'm in violation of my lease terms. However, when I ask to go to get my lease and discuss the validity of his claims he runs away saying I'll call you tomorrow. But he never does. Everyone at this complex has similar stories about being bullied. I can see my review also reflects the feelings of a majority of the reviewers on this website and others. Thank you Davis and Paul for taking a nice, peaceful, well maintained property and turning it into a dirty slum hole where tenants are afraid to open their own front door. And all in six months...

They were a pain to deal with and in the end after our notice to move out they added several charges to our bill so they didn't have to give us our deposit back.

Charges that should not be there.

This was one of their buildings in Modesto.

I will stay away from this company.

My experience with Davis-Paul wasn't as bad as the rest of you who cared to share your stories. There were some maintenance issues within the building, but what buildings don't have them? I felt safe in my apartment, my maintenance requests were taken care of, my landlord was super sweet, and I got my deposit back. I paid my rent on the first, and never bothered to use up the grace period the offer (up until the 5th). The only complaint I have was that the response time wasn't as fast as having direct contact with the owner. As far as I know, Davis-Paul manages somewhere between 3,000 and 4,000 units (What I heard from the man who answers the phones). So realizing that there are probably lots of maintenance calls coming in, I understand how it could be difficult to track all of them. I've worked in management before, and it's not an easy job. You're stuck in the middle of trying to please both tenants, and owners of the buildings. It's hard to convince an owner that he needs to spend $20,000 to fix a leaking roof, when he can spend $500 and do a minor fix on the unit that is leaking. Often times, the owners of these buildings are trying to sell the building for a profit, and spending thousands of dollars repairing something big, is not in their budget. Luckily, the building I lived in, was not in one of these situations, but they do exist. That being said, I sympathize with those of you who have had bad experiences... But mine was great. Thanks Davis-Paul!

If you enjoy being angry, then march to the nearest apartment building that is "Professionally Managed by Davis-Paul Management Group". You don't like being ripped off, stressed out and having your legal rights urinated on? Then run like the devil is chasing you, because if you rent from these lovely people, he is.

They lose things..important things..like rent checks, security deposits, things like that. It doesn't matter if you send the check by Priority Mail with signature confirmation days early..they will swear up and down that it wasn't received until the 6th..never mind the 6th may have been a weekend or legal holiday.
When you refuse to pay their bogus $75 "late fee", a Three Day Notice will appear upon your door, calling the bogus fees "rent"..a definite no-no under California landlord statutes. When you tell one of the owners that her notice is "fatally flawed" legally and not worth wiping your backside from a legal standpoint, you will get to laugh and laugh, as she calls you names and questions your intelligence, shrieking like a hyena.

If you are desperate and must rent from these fine people, paper trail them into the next millenium..it will save both your sanity and your credit rating.

Pros: I never have to deal with them again, thanks to a great consumer attorney.

Cons: Too many to mention. Besides, this board is rated PG-13.

Have you ever dreamed of living in hell? Have you ever lived in fear of being evicted for o reason? Have you ever had to shower with freezing cold water? Have you ever had to live in decrepit conditions in a dilapidated building? No you say? Weeeeeeeeeeell, in case you want to do that and lots more, just move into ANY of the buildings owned by this conglomerate owned by and run by morons. Phone calls never get returned. Rent checks "get lost" or deposited late just so they can charge you the never ending late fees. The employe representatives of this company from nightmare hell all pass you along from one to the other, never resolving any issue. 3 day eviction notices get served for no reason. Turn over rate at their buildings is such to make you wonder what goes on with them. Read the other reviews, they are not lying or making things up or anything like that. Before these people stepped in my building was a heavenly place, no it's quite the opposite. Repairs NEVER get done or left up to you. Hallways are always dark, smelly and dangerous. Trees get chopped down for no reason at all. Paint peels from the walls. Don't believe me? Ask to see one of their never ending vacancies! Do pray you never have to deal with the office staff since they are the epitome of ineptness. Even the manager from my building cannot stand these people. Judging by how many empty apartemnts they always have (up to 50% vacancy rate at times) makes the statement that these people don't care about their tenants, so they move on. DO NOT RENT FROM THESE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pros: lots of light in the apartments

Cons: the light shows all the blemishes

I lived in one of their studio's for 1 yr 3 months and then needed to move out of the country. My girl friend just moved into town and I was leaving the country (I know very sad) and I wanted to get the apartment for her. So I asked them if that is possible. My agent flat out refused to move it to my gf's name (all cases, put her on the lease, get a new lease, leave me on the lease and make her an authorized occupant). Her argument was that the apartment was far below the market rate. So I asked her for the new rate and she came back with $1800 as the market rate and a subsidized rate of $1500 for my girl friend. I was currently paying $1080. A flat out increase of 47%. My girl friend just moved into a 1 bed room in the same neighborhood for $1400 including garage. Now tell me $1800 for a studio with a bathroom smaller than a closet (don't believe me check out 320 duncan st. #B). This is not the worst. The lady comes on my moving day to inspect the premise (i had given nearlly 2 month notice) and she gets the absolute last day to visit. Tells me everything is alright and they will deduct $80 for standard cleaning. I get a check 2 weeks later with beleive it or not $748 deducted from my deposit. I was billed for house painting in the apartment that wasn't painted when i moved in. Don't trust these people. I have written proof of all the records and pictures. If you don't believe my case I will send you the proof. Stay away from them. There are plenty other better places to rent from

Pros: Do not bother you while you live in their property

Cons: Cheats

I have lived here 5 years in Palomar Terrace and I can honestly say the management is abysmal.
My walls have peeling paint, broken doors, broken window screens, faucets that leak, mold and no matter how much you ask for assistance, you get greeted by Brenda, the office latchkey, who always "knows nothing, ask Karen" (Karen being the head kahuna, the Leasing Mgr) Karen says she'll make a note of it, in a pleasant voice and nothing ever happens thereafter. Yet, please believe, they are quick to send 3day notices, 30 days notices, mysterious charges appear, they bill you for mysterious things u "never paid" back in 2004, they are ridiculous. On top of that, the staff are mostly illegal immigrants who only fix their friend's apartments. If they don't know you, or like you, DON'T EXPECT ANY TYPE OF SERVICE. I am now looking for legal recourse and I know they will try to rip off my deposit when it's time to leave. Regardless of the fact that they have NOT DONE ANY UPKEEP ON THE APARTMENT.

*** NEVER, EVER, RENT OR LEASE FROM THIS CO OR AT THESE APARTMENTS, IT'S JUST NOT WORTH THE AGGRAVATION ***

Pros: LOCATION OF PALOMAR TERRACE IS NEAR COURTHOUSE, SCHOOLS, SHOPPING CENTER, SOUTHLAND MALL, PARK, JUST ABOUT ANYTHING YOU WANT IS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE

Cons: EXTREMELY TERRIBLE MANAGEMENT, NO REPAIRS MADE, MYSTERIOUS BILLING CONSISTENTLY, REPAIR STAFF CAN'T SPEAK ENGLISH. YOUR REQUESTS WILL ALWAYS BE IGNORED

.

believe what you hear and read. These people should be put out of business and in my mind JAILED. the way they treat tenants is disgraceful. I have heard that they have been sued by landlords as well. Any lawyer with a minute of spare time should investigate these people. how they are still in business baffles me.

the list is too large to go into but suffice it to say that you WILL get burned by them. I believe in kharma and these folks have a lot of bad kharma that will catch up to them. They rip off tenants and owners. There is a vacancy in HELL and they are all heading there. Not one employee can honestly say to themselves that they have not ripped someone off. That is sad.

These people are a joke. They must hire people straight out of junior high because they have no customer service skills or intelligence. I have left numerous messages, sent emails to them, and nothing. When you do get a hold of them they act like they never got a message and you are lying. They are the worst management company and all of the reviews on here are completely true. DO NOT RENT FROM THEM. The owners of the buildings that they manage should be made aware of this if they already aren't. HORRIBLE.

I am not the type of person that posts reviews about companies on websites. I can across this site when I was looking for an agency that I could report Davis Paul Management Group to for their lack of service and inability to get anything done. As stated in the prior notes, It is all but impossible to get anyone there to return a call even for easy to answer questions. I have called over 7 times this month to check to see if they received a check that I sent to them. After 7 calls placed I still have yet to get a call back. ANd this is just to say if they have something or not. I have lived in my apartment for 3 years and have had to replace the light bulbs in the common hallways since I moved in otherwise they would not get done. I had to have the carpet de-flee'd before I could move into my apartment and was asked my davis paul if I would not mind vacuming up the dead fleas myself as they just could not seem to get someone out to my place to finish cleaning my unit. They managed to cash my check very quickly however. They did not paint, I had to request they clean the carpet (which they did not) and I am sure they will be a big problem with my deposit when I do move out. They are very rude to deal with and even their form letters are curt and rude. When you get tired of trying to get your account manager on the phone, Don't bother trying to call one of the owners, they are even worse than their staff. The lack of customer service seems to come from the top. I must be listed as a core value of the company! If I owned a property and was looking for a company to manage it, this company would be the last one I would choose. If you find your dream apt and it is with Davis Paul I would suggest that you get a new dream.

I agree with all of the previously posted reviews. As a tenant of Davis Paul Management Group's for over 3 years, it was a successive nightmare one after another to get anything repaired or any adjustments made to the paperwork (i.e. tenant addendums, etc). A few tips if you are already subjected to renting from them:

1. They are excellent at Passive Aggressive responses. Demand all agreements, however minor they may seem, IN WRITING.

2. They will do everything they can not to meet with you in person. They will only give verbal agreements & will not back them up with action. If you want something done, you must go to their office & sit there demanding that they deal with you if you want to get anything from them. Even then, get names of each person you interact with & get written agreements! I can't stress this enough. They are incredibly skilled at dodging their commitments & agreements with their tenants. Even at the end of my tenancy with them, there were issues 2+ years outstanding that we believed had been resolved & were never resolved.

3. They really don't care about their tenants. You can say that about alot of rental companies in the city, but once you know this- you won't feel bad about harrassing them to get what you legally deserve. Because, unfortunately, that is what you have to do & even though it wastes ALOT of your personal energy & time - there is no other way.

They make it particularly frustrating because they will tell you something is handled, or will be repaired, and then they just won't do it! And the burden of getting them to do their job is left to you, the poor tenant.

Avoid renting from them if you can, but if not, definately learn your rights - you'll need all the help you can get.

I must agree with the former reviewer, what she says is true. They do not follow up on problems in a prompt or even respectful manner. When something breaks down, they replace it with an inferior product. They do not follow up on problems with the building, even when they receive repeated calls from various tenants. And I do get a strong sense from their treatment of tenants that they prefer a high turnover so they are able to constantly raise the rents. They have nice properties, but I do agree with the previous review - do not rent from Davis-Paul Management if you plan on being a tenant for any length of time.

Pros: Nice Buildings

Cons: Poor Management, Treatment of Tenants

.

My family and I lived in one of their units and moved after being disgusted by the way we were treated. They undermine the tenants....the tenants move out.... they raise the rents afterwards.
That is their MO.
No protection to the tenant who pay their salary , just passive agressive behavior.
I have to agree with all the negitive comments that have been recently written over the past year. Parents with a young child need NOT apply here , you will be waisting your time.REJECTED.

It seems to be all about profit management. I agree with one of the other reviewers that it is about the minimum input by owners. The property manager in my building is, in my opinion, a jerk. My apartment is amazingly noisy from the floor above and outside. I inquired about this when I viewed the property and was told that you can hear somethngs, but tenants have worked it out. You can hear all walking, etc. on the floor above you and the street noise in my apartment is really bad. I would not hve rented it had I known. My leasing agent was a great nice guy, but since then, I have been less than pleased.

Pros: remodeled, good location

Cons: cheap fixtures, NOISY, charge for washing

I mailed my rent a day before the 1st of the month of April, Davis-Paul sent me a
notice stating my rent was late therefore I owe a late fee. There is no way that it takes the Post Office five days to deliver a letter in th Bay Area. All other debtors received payments by the 3rd of the month. There are others charges for other months listed on the statement for thirty cents, sixty cents, etc. for which there is no explanation what these charges are for. What really rankles me is they take for ever to cash your rent check.

It is unreal how unorganized these people were. They sent me a 3-day notice even though my first month of rent was free and then didn't believe me until I showed them the lease. The guy I worked with was a total misogynist who treated me like some dumb girl whose daddy paid her rent. The worst renting experience I've ever had.

They have been prone to mistakes. Accusing tenants of missing rent payments and sending out 30 day eviction notices when it has been their accounting errors. They appeared to be friendly, but seem to have a high rate of turnover of their accounts reps.

Be cautious of renting properties they manage. Their own interests, not the tenants, is their main concern. From my experience with, "just enough to get by" is their business philosophy and, by association, also the conpanies and individuals who hire them their property managers.

I would never live in a building managed by this company again. We had no hot water in our building for 9 days before they fixed it. They rarely respond to phone calls until multiple calls are made. They charged me for a 'light cleaning' of the apartment when I moved out, when it was filthy when I moved in. Completely inattentive This is all documented so they have no reason to request a removal of this post. Do a Google search to find out more interesting facts about Davis-Paul Management.

As a former tenant of them I'd have to say that they are big you know whats. He actually called me and yelled at me, called me names and made me cry. And all because I dared to question the increase in our utility payments. I found that they often waited until the last minute to notify you that they were entering your apartment (less then the required 24 hours), needed repairs took a long time and many phone calls to get done. The property managers had a high turn over rate and little knowledge of what was happening at their properties.
