Camden hunters creek
Orlando, Florida
United States
I complain to Florida Commission on human relation, General attorney, U.S Depatment of housing & Urban Development (HUD), Florida Department of agriculture & Consumer Services about a housing rental Issue I encouter after being approved for a rental unit at Camden Hunters Creek, ; none was of any help, instead it seemed as if they made any excuse possible to get Camden off the hook even though I had all the evidence. The issue was that I went in to Camden and applyed for a rental unit available in a month. I gave the proper fee and was told congratualation you've been apporved with no deposit. I payed the administration fee of $260 + $50 credit check. I have all document stating everything clearly, I also provided information they requested concerning information on my credit report, and they mentioned of a rental history from 2004 I was not aware of. They took a few days for confimation with the CEO which I later received a call from Camden saying I was fully approved (all documented on Camden Computer of ceo approval). So a month later, three days before move in, I received a call from a manager at Camden telling me I was unable to move in due to my landlord history. I went through the whole explanation of how they approved me with knowledge of the history which I did not even know of and did not remember owing for any rental on 2004. He was rude point being, and did not even considered that I have four kids and would be homeless in a few days. Camden should had requested a deposit since it was their fault for the issue, for some reason they just did not want me moving in. I explained to the housing department's, but my complaint did not process because i had no case and they felt camden has the right to deny my application, even though I mention unfair treatment and or discrimination possible and breach in contract. Another gave me statistic compared with other applications from camden, and found no discrimination but I mention he did not compare mines to does approved with bad credit and he did not request documentation of ceo approval (the blame was being put on one person even though several of them reviewed it), I did not receive a respond back. Another agency was just a third party to resolve the issue without further procedures (I feel this agency is a waste of money for those whom funds it), I was told if Camden did not respond they can not do anything else bacause they are just third parties to find a solution without the extra. I later got information from the report Camden requested for my credit history and found out that the rental history in question was from a apartment rental in 2004 that went foreclosed a couple of months after I moved in, why is on my credit, I do not know but the credit agency told me it can not be removed because is public information (lol). Camden states that they denied me for my credit history(manager told me rental history). I explained they reviewed it and they should had deny me the day I applyed instead of taking my money for over a month and then leave me homeless with four kids (no one cared). Another excuse from housing Derpt is they refunded me the fee, that should be good, and that as camden has the rights to deny me before move in I could had also deny moving in and camden would had stood with an empty apartment needed to get rented. I explained that If I was to deny moving in to the apartment, Camden would keep my fee as stated on contract, but I got nothing from them refusing me to move in (I was told the same excuse by an attorney, go figure) instead I had to take another chance with another apartment unit possibly doing the same thing; most apartment complexs/condos here you do not sign lease until move date but they require you give the fee and deposit at time of application (???).
Legally Camden breached contract even thought I did not sign a lease I have document showing they approved me, they took my move in fee and kept it for over a month which is illegal if I was not approved, an attorney tells me it would cost me more to argue it in court than I would get back (????). General attorney's office refered me to the same people I had already done complaints with.

It happened a few month ago. The landlord history is not my fault, it was a home foreclosed and it should not even appear on my credit report, i vacated when the bank passed notice of foreclosure. Their was a legal contract, I have a paper saying the unit assinged to me and they where not to take/keep my fee unless the unit was being rented to me. Regarless this is unfair business practice/scam.
