In June of 2013 RPM Rincon took over the management of our property. We already had a tenant in the house from the previous management company. We moved to RPM with our manager Dino Koch who promised us a seamless transition. During that time our previous tenants moved out and RPM put new people in our house. After two months of RPM managing our property we experienced tremendous income loss and unnecessary expenses. RPM never performed a move-out inspection. Our property was destroyed by the previous tenants. We had to invest almost $6,000 to bring the property to rentable condition and give the new tenants discount for the first month of rent as the home was rented to them in deplorable condition.
We fired RPM as of 8/1/2013 and paid the early cancelation fee (three months of management fees). Six months late, in February of 2014 we received a bill from RPM stating that we owe them the remaining of the management fees for the term of lease.
We filed a claim with Small Claims in Pima Co. (CV 14-011659) against Chet Judd, the owner of RPM Rincon. On 10th of July The Judge ordered that we were entitled to recover from RPM $472.52 @ 4.25% monthly interest for over paid management fees. I called RPM in November inquiring about the money that Chet Judd owed us and was told that the payment is being processed.
As of 1/8/15 we have not received the money that Chet Judd was ordered to pay us.
For the owners that consider to use RPM Rincons services; be advised that their contract is predatory. It is designed to collect money from the owner even if RPM is at fault. Chet Judd will charge you the cancellation fee and the management fee for the entire term of lease, unless you take him to court. Also, read the paragraph of the contract (Other Terms 14.) that states if owner prematurely terminates agreement FOR ANY REASON , owner will pay to manager a cancelation fee).
As a side note I also wanted to mention that Chet Judd reserves to use threats and inappropriate language when talking to his customers.
