Century West Apartments — treatment of renters in hawaii
I've been reaching out for help for a long time now. I am a tenant of a building in century west in salt lake. We are a young local family renting our second apartment after living with family for a long time. Our last apartment we were treated so well and were considered awesome tenants, however since we moved here things have seemed to be the complete opposite. I believe people should know that as a young local couple you are judged in this building. So much for equal opportunity. Ever since we moved in this building security has treated us as if they are against us. First few days of living here our 15 yr old brother was walking through the hall way with a back pack on after coming from the beach, and was questioned and cursed at for "looking suspicous". How does a child with a back pack threaten grown adults to the point were he was cursed at. When I questioned the security about it I was told that the older man felt threatened and wasn't sure the child was carrying weapons in his bag.. (why, I don't know) if you are scared why would you approach someone. We are consantly accused of things and i've had it. I spoke with the resident manager of the building and all I got was a shrug of the shoulders. I'm just clueless as what to do next. I do not have money for legal help. I just want people to know that this building treats you unfair if your are a renter and not an owner, and also you are a local family.
