I do believe I ranted here a while ago about a certain family member leaving us in the lurch. And also about our recent home purchase and subsequent renovations. That is still ongoing, and I know I haven’t posted any photos lately… it’s been an odd couple of weeks. I’ll get some photos up shortly, as the kitchen is nearing completion.
Anyway, rant time. When we rented the last house we were in, it was through Invitation Homes. They were fine on the whole. When we left the house we didn’t actually expect to get any of our deposit back, but a couple of weeks later we received a check in the mail. Sadly, this check had all of our names on it… including the aforementioned person who bailed, and between each of the three names on the check was a simple word “and”… Our bank, Capital One, says that since she isn’t on our account, she has to come with us to a branch. One issue… the third name is in CA and we are in WA. Another issue… even if she was in WA, there are no Capital One branches in WA!!!
Ok, this happened with the previous rental as well. We called them and they re-issued the check with just Jan’s name on it. Problem solved. We called Invitation Homes and they won’t re-issue the check. They adhere to their policy and that’s all there is to it. Ok, fine, we’ll take the check with us when we go to CA for Christmas and then we can all go cash it. Oh wait, it expires in 90 days from being issued… so it’ll be expired in November!
According to whomever Jan spoke with, another group with 4 names on the check all moved to different states and are in the process of having the check mailed around to each person to get their signature along with notarized letters allowing one person to cash the check! How is this a reasonable expectation?!?
Ok, rant over. Invitation Homes doesn’t know Jan… they are in for a workout.
