No, He Really Does Suck

Just when I think I’ve seen every possible trick employed by this guy, more questionable dealings surface making me ponder how this man ever sleeps at night.

God, how can I even begin this story?

Our developer also owns a property management company called III CD Management. III CD managed a rental building at 7527-7529 South Colfax here in the city. Obviously he didn’t have too good of a management style as he was cited by the city for five separate plumbing violations. After an administrative hearing, a judgment was entered against him for $500 for each count plus an additional $50 in court costs for a total of $2,550.

You’d think that would be the end of it, right? How in God’s name could we as a completely separate entity be dragged in the middle of this mess?

Easy---the city cited us as his employer. How they made that assumption still boggles me.

At the time, our developer was also the president and the registered agent of our condo association. All of our mail was going to his place of business. When the court attempted to reach us about the garnishment of our “employee’s” wages, we never had any idea that legal paperwork was being sent. Our developer also never mentioned this little outstanding issue to anyone on the board at the time. When we didn’t respond to the court’s request for a garnishment, we wound up stuck with the total amount of the judgment for over $2,700.

Brilliant, huh?

You ignore the basic needs of people, blow off the courts and a judgment and then knowingly manipulate the system so a group of people who had nothing to do with your dirt wind up paying the tab.

I can only shake my head.
