Property management representative disputes some claims

Unsafe and potential health concerns in his apartment in Sharon led William Schultz Jr. to contact those he thought would address the issues, but they weren’t taken care of.

After striking out with the local manager, Schultz said he contacted the regional property manager – and sent photos and videos to the corporate office, a claim the regional manager denies.

The issues in Schultz’s now former apartment – he moved out just over a week ago – include mold on the living room window, which also bows out when pushed on, as well as mold or mildew and cracks in the bathroom. The stovetop also is loose and unsafe to use, he said.

“The former manager patched things up around the window, but it didn’t last,” Schultz said. “The maintenance guy looked at it and said he’d fix it but never did anything. I called the new manager multiple times and she didn’t do anything.”
