Thank You National Apartment Association. I will do my best to get this very important information out ASAP to numerous owners, investors, huge property management companies (e.g., Riverstone Residential), attorneys, and judges, AND, of course, to the MANY people who are currently living in MOLD-INFESTED APARTMENT COMPLEXES right now! katy

Lastly, I expressed my wish to exit my lease early back in December and January with several problem, but then just let it go because I couldn’t be bothered to move.
However, in march I received a note asking if i would like to stay at park lane and if i do they can offer me my place at x rate for another year. I was NEVER staying at this place for another year, I needed to hand in my 60 day notice by May 1st to let the office know i was vacating the apartment. I received another friendly reminder end of April to do this. I write a letter to the management office to notify them I will not be extending my lease and will be moving out June 24th and will vacate the apartment by the end of June as it says in my lease. Handed in the letter with my rent check at the concierge as per usual. Case closed done with Park Lane. Of course not. I received another letter on the 24th of May after returning from a family event stating I will not have to pay 1 month extra and can vacate until July 24th because I did not notify the office that I was planning on leaving. I thought this must be a mistake. I had asked them to terminate my lease early already back in January as well as submitted a letter May 1st. I went down to the office and sure enough “They did not receive my letter and there for have to charge me extra month”. I showed them a copy of the letter I had submitted, which I had a copy of. They called my a liar and said they find it hard to believe they received my rent checks and not my letter. They were not understanding nor did they make any attempt to fix or resolve this problem with me, yet were very rude, called my a liar and are charging me an extra month.
I have brought more business to Park Lane, why i dont know, but I did, always paid rent on time, had several problems and am now being called a liar and am being forced to stay 30 days longer, being forced to pay 30 days more because their concierge service is incapable of submitting a letter. If Park Lane really cared about their tenants and really didnt want to force me in to staying longer, pick up the damn phone and ask. “Hi its the management office, your lease is up in 60 days and we just wanted to remind you that you need to terminate by today”. “Oh no, I will be leaving June 24th, Thanks” Easy as that. They have bad numbers in the building and need to make money somehow, and this is how they do it.
Stay far away from Park Lane if you want to have a good experience.
Oh and also, there is no cell phone reception in the entire north side of the building.
So if you move to PL and have AT&T, make sure you have a landline.

Information about Riverstone Residential, the Louisiana Housing Finance Agency, and the owners of Jefferson Lakes Apartments in Baton Rouge, Louisiana allowing tenants to be exposed to extreme amounts of toxins from molds by intentionally concealing evidence
Irrefutable evidence indicates that Riverstone Residential, Guarantee Service Team of Professionals, & plaintiffs’ attorney, J Arthur Smith III, must have agreed to exclude evidence that would have shown the owners of Jefferson Lakes Apartments & Riverstone Residential had knowledge of the severe MOLD INFESTATION at the complex before we moved in
Political Action Committee – National Apartment Association (NAA) files Amicus Brief in mold case (two infant deaths in mold filled apt – Wasatch Prop Mgmt) citing US Chamber/ACOEM ‘litigation defense report’ to disclaim health effects of indoor mold & limit financial risk for industry
“Changes in construction methods have caused US buildings to become perfect petri dishes for mold and bacteria to flourish when water is added. Instead of warning the public and teaching physicians that the buildings were causing illness; in 2003 the US Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform, a think-tank, and a workers comp physician trade organization mass marketed an unscientific nonsequitor to the courts to disclaim the adverse health effects to stave off liability for financial stakeholders of moldy buildings. Although publicly exposed many times over the years, the deceit lingers in US courts to this very day.” Sharon Noonan Kramer
