Charnjit Sekhon — bad landlord
My husband and I both felt compelled to write on this board to warn future tenants to be wary of this landlord. We are in the process of taking him to small claims for stealing 2, 800 of our security deposit.
When we moved in we were very concerned about giving him an 8, 000 deposit on the house as it was not in the best shape to begin with. But he assured us that he gave back the previous tenants all by $75 of their deposit.
After a year 1/2 of dealing with his demeaning personality we decided to move. Luckily we were able to purchase another house. We both stuck to the lease agreement as Churn had requested and paid up to the end of the lease even though we had moved out 2 months early. This had really put us in a bind as we patiently waited for the deposit.See the Top 10 Worst Complaints in Laguna Beach, CA
When we received the check I was shocked that he had itemized everything he possible could. From charging us over 600 for dry cleaning the drapes to 1, 000 for painting the house.
When I had asked him to give me a list of what he thought he was going to charge us for he denied us that option after the walk through. We made sure the carpets were cleaned professionally, and I touched up any spots on the wall before we left. Now he is claiming that his sister in law was there during the walk through and we were the ones that denied the sign off sheet. What a piece of work. I can only hope that justice will come when we take him to small claims.
FYI - I finally spoke to the previos tenants before us and they had similar issues. Infact they replaced all the carpet themselves 5 years ago.
