Front Range Management / RENTAL SCAM
I rented from Randy Sigley without first checking him out, which is my mistake. During the last week before I was do to move in certain things still hadn't been done, things that I couldn't do and that he promised he'd do, like replacing the broken kitchen faucet for example. So I had my soon to be ex husband (who has been doing construction, plumbing, electrical etc, for 30+ years) to talk to him and see if he could fix it for me.
Now part of the deal is that I do work around the place, clean up after the last tenants, etc. Which is fine, but I don't do technical stuff, like changing faucets, fixing toilets, etc etc. That was my husbands area and I have no idea how to do that. And Randy said he'd do it anyways. I also asked him if we could paint my daughter's room a specific color, over the phone (should have asked for email confirmation but didn't, my mistake again) and he said yes.
Well, my husband did ask him about the faucet and offered to fix, and very nicely I might add. Well shortly after he gave permission for my husband to do so, I get a call from Randy telling me how my husband "jumped his ###" which was a total lie as I heard the whole conversation. So I proceeded to "kiss ###" to keep the peace.
I then looked up the name of the business (too little too late) and found this website, which scared me, but I was hoping I could still work with him right?
Well, we moved my stuff in on Saturday January 17, 2009, and everything was going well, until I replied to an email of Randy's asking how things were going, when was he going to get the prorated rent check, and that he'd let me know about the utilities. After replying to that and asking him about an outlet that wasn't working, letting him know that he should have the rent that day in the mail, and that I needed a copy of the utility bill for some county health insurance, he then proceeded to accuse me of wanting a "remodel" and that I violated the lease concerning the painting of my daughter's room, and that we never spoke about the painting of the bedroom.
Then he sent another one at 3 pm this same day saying I needed to move and was being evicted. Then he changed his mind again and said that we needed to redo the lease but that I couldn't bring my husband to this meeting.
He then proceeded to threaten me with the police (whatever) and the code enforcement (for what?) and that he was going to post a 3 day notice (ya so?) after which he said he would "forcibly remove me", which is highly illegal without a court eviction. I told him I would leave if he gave me my full $400 deposit back. He hasn't so I'm staying. I'm a single mother and I don't make much. I can't afford to move without my deposit so I'm not moving.
My 14-yo daughter is so anxious over this that she can't even sleep in her own bed at night, and this is a girl who is afraid of nothing. I just wanted a nice safe place for my daughter and me to live and this is what I get. I don't feel safe leaving my place unattended and feel like a prisoner here.
