Well, end of the story is I asked to pay one months rent ($1000) and move on from the lease as a penalty. I offered to send the check three time! Lisa nor Ed never called back. Two weeks later, a collection agency for MLC called me. They are suing me for $2500 in collections for early termination of a 12 month lease without cause. I was shocked. I called Lisa she quickly said we tried to work out a deal with you but it was out of our hands, can;t help you anymore, sorry bye. Wow. I could have taken this all the way. I should have. However I figured I could pay it no problem. As a traveling photographer making $5000 a month on average it was no biggie. Well, the economic crisis hit and guess what, so did my work and my company. Needless to say an extra $2500 was not available.
My conclusion is/was this. Now, a year later (this happened @ 1215 Virginia Ave NE #1 July 08-December 08') I am BLACKLISTED from renting ANYWHERE IN ATLANTA) Not just after paying off the collection can I not rent, I am on a NO RENT LIST for I do not know how many years.
I may have to move or relocate where someone can rent an apartment for my daughter and myself in their name, as I cannot. If yu have kids, go for a new and safe location like the Gables Communities. These properties with "old charm", gave me nothing but " bad luck".
