Beware of Matthew “Matt” Wilson at Meadors, Adams & Lee, Little Rock, AR

Matthew Wilson, insurance agent at Meadors, Adams & Lee in Little Rock, AR is a shady, crooked business man. DO NOT do business with him. Matthew Wilson is also a landlord, in addition to working at Meadors, Adams & Lee. He also goes by "Matt." We rented his rental house in Arkansas, and asked if we could terminate our lease early. He said yes. We asked him to come for a walk-through so that we could get our $1,000.00 security deposit back. He said he would "have to see when he could get up there" to see the house. He DID NOT say he was going to keep the deposit! Matt re-rented the house immediately, without a day of rental income lost. He even got a new damage deposit from the new renters. When we moved in, the house was in disrepair and filthy. There was dog hair inside the refrigerator. When we moved out, the house was left in immaculate condition. In fact, the house was upgraded because we had had repairs done that Matt had approved and paid for, and had painted one of the bathrooms (at our own expense) in a more modern color, all of which made it a more desirable house. There was no damage and later on Matt actually acknowledged that there was no damage. While we lived there, an HVAC guy came out to look at a faulty blower, and found underneath the house that the gas line had holes in it. Once the furnace got turned on in winter, the gas would be leaking up through the floor. He never addressed it while we were there and we left before winter. His new tenants have a little girl. Shouldn't he disclose the potential gas leak and that repairs are needed? Or get it fixed? Should we write to the current tenants and warn them? Matt never returned the $1,000.00. A friend ours went by his office to try to pick up the refund (to no avail), and he admitted he "had done us, the tenants, wrong". Over a series of 5 months he said he would return "some" of the money but attempted THREE TIMES to mail it (at least, so he said) and none of those three times did any money return to us. Now really, do you think it is rocket science to mail a letter and address it properly? Or, is it the proverbial "the check's in the mail"? It would have been a whole lot different if Matt had said he would let us out of the lease with the forfeit of the security deposit. BUT HE DID NOT. He led us to believe he would return it by virtue of not informing us he would not return it, even when the subject matter was discussed! Matt just wants to keep the $1,000.00! It is not his money, and never was his money. It was a security deposit, and all rents were paid and no damage was done. (The house was, in fact, improved upon.) It's slimy when a tenant says "Come up and do a walk-through so I can get my deposit back" and the owner doesn't say "You won't be getting your deposit back" but says instead "I'll have to see when I can get up there." Don't fall for his tactics, and for God's sake, don't do business with this SLIMY insurance salesman. If he won't disclose a potential gas leak, or disclose that he's keeping a hefty deposit, just imagine what he won't disclose about your insurance!!!
