resolved to the customer's satisfaction
Ardent is an unethical business. It will take advantage of tenants and drive up costs in addition to the deceptively low rent. Caveat Emptor: Tenants should avoid any property managed by Ardent. I represent many landlords and other property management companies. To date, I know of no company that is worse than Ardent Property Management.
Thus, prospective tenants should go elsewhere. Current tenants should leave at the first moment their lease ends. You can find ethical landlords and businesses around Columbus and its outlying suburbs that will treat you with respect as a valued customer.
The facts are telling - Ardent has had so many complaints against it filed with the Better Business Bureau based upon these unethical practices that it has stopped responding. The BBB can provide renters with information concerning the extent of Ardent's behavior, as well as point such renters in the right direction regarding ethical landlords/property management companies. Further, the Attorney General's Office has fielded similar complaints against Ardent. What more proof does one need?
