Piedra Leasing/Stone Community Park

I would STRONGLY suggest that anyone looking for a place to rent in the Copperas Cove,TX and/or Kempner, TX area do NOT rent from there people!! Not sure if the owner (Scot Stone) is not aware or just doesn't care about things that go on with his rentals trailer houses located on Private Road 4805 because everytime any of his tenants have a problem with any of the other tenants and try to call him because the manager (Nora Rye) just says she "doesn't want to get involved...it's between the tenants", he will never return any of the phone calls to even say that he will look into the situations. There have been several instances involving the manager (Nora Rye) and the maintenance man (Don Rye) that have happened and several of the tenants have called Mr. Scot Stone to no avail because messages have been left for him but he refuses to call anyone back. The manager and maintenance man have been embezzling rent money and spending it on their own personal choices such as having the managers nails done, eating out, sending their out of state children rent moneyto pay their rent or to come visit them or putting brand new carpet in their home instead of fixing the houses out there that need immediate attention. One of the tenants has been trying for 3 months to collect her deposit return for the amount of $400.00 on the house she rented from Mrs. Nora Rye to no avail because Nora keeps coming up with sob stories why she can not return the woman's deposit that is rightfully hers. She came up with some elaborate story that she and her husband (Don Rye-Maintenance man) has to make an emergency trip to Arkansas and that they were trapped in their hotel because of tornadoes and that it was so bad that Don had to be rushed to the hospital in Arkansas. Come to find out, they went to Arkansas for Don's son's wedding and there was no tornadoes when they were there and Don never had to go to the hospital. There is a 15 year old boy out there who loves to bully younger kids and pull knives on them and threaten to kill the younger kid and yet again when the manager is told about the situation she simply says "I don't want to get involved...it's between tenants" so then the paents of the younger child called the cops on the 15 year old kid and then the other tenants who are friends with the 15 year old and allow him to drink alcohol at their home and are also friends with the boys father in turn start problems with the parents and grandparents of the younger child and get their friends who are in their 30's go over and beat the *** out of the 52 year old grandpa who is a heart patient yelling that they are "going to kill the old man" and yet again Nora "doesn't want to get involved....it's between the tenants" even though the 52 year old man had a severe concussion, severely bruised ribs and his lungs were so severely bruised that the doctors thought that he had emphasema, but the only reason she said that was because she is baby sitting the aggressors 3 children. The maintenance man (Don Rye) has a habit of going into the tenants storage facilities and selling the tenants property without permission, then when he is confronted with it, he starts yelling and cursing at the tenant. The 52 year old man who is a heart patient, his ac unit went out when temps were in the 100's and instead of even putting in window units, Nora and Don (who were aware of the ac unit 2 weeks before hand) decided that was the perfect time to leave and go out of state leaving the 52 year old man in the house with no ac in the heat! One of the tenants out there has 2 small children with bad allergies and other health problems and the momma is 2 months pregnant now have black mold all over the walls and refuse to fix it, instead they give the tenants a letter that says they have 10 days to vacate their property. Another one of the tenants who has been living there for almost 5 years and his rent is only supposed to be $575.00 had asked to move into a bigger home and the Manager tells him he "can't afford it" even though the rent on the bigger place would only be $675.00 and he is currently paying $800.00. The manager (Nora Rye) and Maintenance man (Don Rye) also go around telling all of the other tenants who has paid their rent and how much they paid and who hasn't paid rent and how much they are behind. So with all of this said, I would STRONGLY advise anyone looking for a place to rent in the Copperas Cove, TX and/or Kempner,TX area DO NOT rent from these lying,embezzling, all around crroked people who are obviously only for themselves and protecting their friends/tenants who have criminal records!!!!

Owner,MGR and Maintenance for Piedra Leasing

The owner (Scot Stone), manager (Nora Rye) and Maintenance man (Don Rye) at Piedra Leasing located in Austin, TX have properties located on Private Road 4805 located just inside the city limits of Kempner, TX in Lanmpasas County. I would like to tell everyone looking to rent a place do NOT do business with these people!!! The owner really either has no idea what is going on down there or just really doesn't care! His manager (Nora Rye) and his Maintenance man (Don Rye) are his drinking and partying buddies so any of the tenants who try to contact him with problems with them he will not return you phone call. There is a 15 year old out there who likes to bully younger kids and pull knives out on them and threaten to kill the younger kid and when the manager is told about the situation, all she can say is "it's none of my business, it's between tenants I do not want to get involved" the Maintenance man has a habit of going into the storage units and sells the tenants property without permission then when he is confronted about it, he yells and curses at them and tells them to get it out when he is the one who helped move the property in there in the first place. They also have other tenants out there who find it funny to get 3 of his other friends to go and beat the *** out of a 52 year old heart patient and yell that they are going to kill him. Again when the manager was told she "didn't want to get involved" because she was watching the aggressors 3 children. And yet again when the owner (Scot Stone) was called, he never returned any of the phone calls. The manager and maintenance man also take the rent money and spend it on their personal choices such as getting her nails done, going out to eat, sending their out of state children money to visit and paying their out of state children's rent on their houses and fixing their own house instead of putting it back into the other rentals that are out there. There is one tenant who has 2 small children with allergies and is expecting another child and they have black mold all over the walls and the manager and maintenance man refuse to fix the problems. The man who is 52 years old and a heart patient, his ac unit went out and the manager would not even put window units in until it could be fixed, he spent a whole 3 week in there with no air when the temps outside reached 100 instead the manager and maintenance man decided they had to go out of state when they knew about the issue way before they left. The manager and maintenance man also go around telling all of the other tenants who has paid rent and how much they paid and who hasn't paid rent and how far behind they are. One of the tenants who has already moved has been asking about her deposit refund of $400.00 for the past 3 months and the manager lies to her telling her they got trapped in a hotel room in Arkansas a few weeks ago from a tornado that went through and that it was so bad that her husband (Don Rye-the Maintenance man) had to be rushed to the hospital in Arkansas. Come to find out there was no tornado while they were there and Don never had to go to the hospital. Another of the tenants had recently asked about moving to another place that was vacant out there and the manager told him he couldn't afford it even though the vacant place would only run $675.00 and right now he has been paying $800.00 on his place even though his rent is only supposed to be $575.00 so I would greatly encourage anyone looking for a place to rent around the Copperas Cove, TX and Kempner, TX area.....DO NOT RENT FROM THESE PEOPLE!!! They are a bunch of drunks, lyers, embezzlementors and just crooked people all together whom most of them and their tenants have criminal records!!! Thank you
