After being lied to and blatantly ignored about our rental situation by Legend Real Estate, it's time to share our story. There are also multiple BYU student horror stories and reviews that are gaining greater traction in bringing to light the dishonest and unethical practices that are being used by Tim Metler and, his business, Legend Real Estate. First of all, in almost every review of the business online -- and in discussing the matter with other BYU students that have had horrid experiences -- there is ONE major common thread that is happening: complete dishonesty on Legend Real Estate’s part. It usually goes something like this… Student decides to go to summer sales, move home for the summer, visit Chile on a trip...etc. They call Legend Real Estate to tell them that they’d like to sell their contract and that if they could please start advertising, that would be ideal. Legend Real Estate agrees. Typically, someone is “found” to replace the student’s obligation to pay the rent. A month or two passes by and the student gets notified of a missed rent payment along with late fees. The student panics, calls up Legend Real Estate and they are rude, abrupt and tell the student that they never told them someone bought the contract or let them know. In our case, the rent magically went up $100 bucks when it came time to sign a contract with them. A good old bait and swtich! Although giving businesses (especially family and local businesses) the benefit of the doubt is important, this is one trend we cannot be forgiving of. BYU students often come into college unaware of the rental hooks that they can become snagged in. Selling contracts is a common occurrence because, let’s face it: LIFE HAPPENS. However, if you’re on the hook for money and there’s a chance to get in an argument and late fees slammed with it -- Legend will take that road. Most businesses want to take the path of least resistance...not these guys. The word “bully” has been used multiple times in BYU student stories and unfortunately, it’s true. BEWARE of this company! You’ve been warned. YES -- college students usually disagree with their landlords on clean checks and other weird fees. NO -- should property management groups EVER be passive aggressive or unprofessional. See it with your own eyes and make an educated decision. You’ve been warned.
