Original review posted by user Dec 28, 2020
I have been a tenant here at Farmington Lakes apartments since 2012. I am 64 years of age. Furthermore, I am the oldest tenant in building L at Lakes at Cross bridge, 7927 Redding Ct. I have several disabilities and service animals. Not, aware that HermanKittle's properties bought the property on June 9, 2017. I have reported this toxic relationship to HermanKittle's Properties, Indianapolis Housing Authority, and Civil Rights on July 11, 2017. Me, moving in 2018-**** was not the best financial move for me, because I am not working a permanent job, to help with the moving expenses nor could afford an attorney to be compensated for the emotional distress damages they cause me over the years. I was advised to hire a private attorney to help. I repeatedly explained to my government officials; I don't have the money or the means to hire a private attorney. Likewise, I am in a toxic, unsafe environment such as, retaliation, direct discrimination, and harassment, which I have filed complaints in 2017, 2018, 2019 against Lakes at Cross bridge Apartments? Furthermore, I have documentation to support each claim that I have stated. On July 11, 2018, I was allegedly accused of verbally bodily harm to another tenant. A notice was put on my apartment door on July 12, 2018, 7-days to vacate. On July 12, 2018, I spoke on the phone with the property manager she informed me that it was a notice on my door to vacate in 7 days for harassing another tenant, and she had recording and videos. I told her I didn't harass anybody, could I come in and speak with you, and hear the recording and see the video you have of me. She said that she wouldn't be in her office. So, I asked my supervisors can I leave; my part-time Goodwill of Central Indiana. SCSEP program training site to take care of this complaint, and it was granted. I made an unannounced visit to the rental office; where I had several statements from tenants regarding the allegedly bodily harm to another tenant. I stop her and handed her the statements of the alleged violation. She read them and said I have to fax a retraction letter to Indianapolis Housing Authority. I said you sent them a letter that I had a 7-days to vacated without even speaking to me or agreeing to meet with me. I asked for a copy of the retraction letter to put in my files. She handed it to me. Then, I asked her can I see the video and hear the recording that you have of me. She responded they got deleted . Direct discrimination: No meeting, and no, 7 days to vacate wasn't issued to this female tenant who is 31 years old on September 17, 2020. On September 17, 2020, ahead of house tenant at an apartment rented at L 144 spit at me and verbally abuse me. This humiliating, degraded unwarranted, and verbal abuse behavior was reported to the property management. She did nothing. Second Direct discrimination: On October 1, 2020, the same tenant did the same thing to another tenant and me. except she threatened to hit me in my mouth. The security office at that time was Mr. Mike Smith who was on duty at the time at Lakes at Crossbridge apartments who was called after the event had occurred. I looked outside in the parking lot, and he was speaking to her. I was not going to let her tell her peace, not until our side of the story was told on the date of the complaint; like I did when I call the police on September 17, 2020, so I yelled out to the security guard when you get through speaking with her, we would like to speak with you too. We filed a complaint together with the security officer. I informed him that I wanted a copy of the complaint, and he agreed. I reported to the property manager what had transpired with the tenant in apartment L144 on October 2, 2020. Being under duress she tried to have a meeting with the tenant who causes the aggressive behavior and me without the male tenant that was involved also. Unhealthy, outrageous behavior and a recording of the security guard saying he was going to give me a copy of the complaint. So, in writing, I asked the property manager for a copy of the complaint also, since he took personal information from both of us. didn't get a copy at all so, I refused to have a meeting with her until I have gotten some legal advice and a meeting with the male tenant. Then, she contacts the male tenant that was involved and set up a meeting with him for October 21, 2020, at 12:30 pm then I agreed to speak with her. Finally, we had a meeting. My sister was present at the meeting. It took the property manager months of delaying to have this meeting; but with me, it took the next day without any evidence. Direct discrimination of unfair treatment based on retaliation influenced by personal feelings and opinions has caused me so much emotional distress. I have continued to seek medical help and medication just so I can get through a day. I'm not sleeping or eating. And I am not as successful financially, emotionally, and in relationships as others. I can't think of the things that really deserve my attention, because outrageously, offensively wrong way to live each day. I play in my head the events that have taken place at Lakes at Crossbridge since 2017-****. I have always taken the first step to work things out, she didn't care, and she never wanted to listen to me. Not only that, I have always been respectful of management even after all she did to me. I have been wanting to leave from up under this property manager before she causes me any more damage or hardship. I have been tempted to break my lease so many times. I would be in a the worst situation.
