Front Range Management, Randy Sigley / Bad Landlord!

1 Colorado Springs, CO, United States Review updated:

In the summer of 2007, my wife and I were looking for a cheap apartment
or house close to downtown Colorado Springs. We found a great deal on Craig's list where we could help fix up an old building for cheaper rent at 501 East Kiowa on the Corona St. side of the building. It was the best deal going and we took it. Neighbors warned us about the owner, but we were out of time so we agreed to put in 90 hours for minimum wage off of our rent over 3 months. Everything was great until we told the guy we had put in more than 90 hours and would keep working for cheap rent if he wrote something up. He told us we had 2 days to move out, but I knew he couldn't do that. He repeatedly threatened us with eviction, but we payed our rent so he couldn't do it. It took him a while, but he finally got rid of us by not paying the commonly metered utilities until they got shut off and the city condemned the building. We had to move and sued Randy Sigley, a.k.a. Randolph A. Sigley and Front Range Management in small claims court. He got a lawyer to threaten us with a frivolous lawsuit case if we proceeded, claiming that he doesn't own the building. We went to court anyway and he showed up with a 14 year old carbon copy of a trade name affidavit that he said proves his ex-wife owns the building and that he is a part time employee and filed a counterclaim of the maximum $7, 500, swearing under oath that he isn't the owner. The judge gave us a 30 day continuance to try to find out who owns the place and we found out that week that he has a mortgage on the building in his name. We're looking forward to our next court date. Do not rent from this man. He has illegally locked families out of their units, and illegaly turned off gas and water and removed electric meters so they didn't have electric. I have seen these things with my own eyes. I knew it was bad when a process server showed up and he took off running through an alley while I was holding up a board for him to screw into a fencepost. I wish we had done a lot more research than we did and we will NEVER sign a lease without finding out all we can about the property owner again. Learn from our mistakes, please!

    We are now in the midst of long, drawn out legal proceedings over this, as he countersued for the maximum allowed in county court to get it out of small claims, where he perjured himself. We will update after the Feb. 11th discovery hearing.

    I believe Randy is using a different name to fish for information off of these sites. I have a specific name in mind so if you want to know which one to look out for e-mail me.

    So, we had our discovery hearing and I've been busy, so I haven't had a chance to update. It was fun to hand over our evidence, but the judge gave him a lengthy extension because he claimed that he didn't know he'd have to have his subpeonas done by the discovery deadline. And this guy used to be an assistant DA? Anybody that's watched law & Order knows that. Anyway, we got some more info so we should be able to get our new stuff added due to this extension, and when this is done we're going to go to the city council and try to get some kind of slumlord law passed here. Other places have it and it really helps preserve tenants rights. If you have any interest in that aspect, please let us know.

    I had largely the same experience. He stole about 50 hours of unpaid labor and two months rent from me. I wish you the best of luck.
