  • Johnny Karnofsky replied to the topic 'Re:How to deal with a hoarder?' in the forum.
    What you CAN do, June, as a resident, is ask to transfer to another unit far away from your hoarder neighbor. Give them a choice, fix the problem, transfer you, or you will leave. Be prepared to not only do so, but also alert your local press and the housing authority to the problem.

  • Johnny Karnofsky replied to the topic 'Electronic Rent Payments' in the forum.
    The problem, Mindy; is that the provider that Appfolio uses to process credit/debit card transactions (they are seen the same) charges the resident a fee of up to $17(I think) to process.

    They also offer cash acceptance via 7-11 and Ace cash advance, but a fee of $4 is attached to that as well....

    Hey Sandy;

    Let me state that I really like Appfolio; it does the most for you and I like the abilities that Appfolio has incorporated: Renter's insurance, online and cash rent payments as well. I do not like the fees attached to credit card or cash payments, even if the card used is a debit card,...

  • I am not sure if it is legal, and that may vary by state; but many large PMC's collect a pet deposit on a per pet basis. I do not like the idea of pet FEES; but I can understand the idea of pet DEPOSITS (which I do not like either), as they are a means for the property to recover additional costs...

    If any of my fellow insiders know of any CURRENT openings for Site Level Managers in the Greater Sacramento (CA) area, please send me your contact information via PM. If you are not the one looking to fill a position, but know someone who is and can get my information in front of that person, I...

  • Johnny Karnofsky replied to the topic 'What to do with "trouble" employee' in the forum.
    In the past when I have held leadership roles, I have always encouraged my team members to take ownership of issues as they arise and make decisions that they are comfortable with. At the same time, my request has been pretty simple: if the employee is uncomfortable with the issue as presented, come...

    Hey Nate; a bit off topic here; but can you take a few minutes and look at the thread TOPIC: Military Housing Staff - Supercede confidentiality and give some advice?

    I seem to remember at one time you posted about having experience being in charge of military housing somewhere.

  • The military also calls housing payments BAQ (Basic Allowance for Quarters); it just depends on which branch of service what it may be called I believe.

    I am of the opinion that since your resident has involved the base housing office in this matter, I would take it as a waiver of confidentiality...

  • Jenette, I would typically agree that learning the 'hard way' is the best way for most things; but when learning something this way calls MY work ethic, professionalism, credibility, or competence into question, or has the potential to affect my bank account in a negative manner; this is most...

  • Johnny Karnofsky replied to the topic 'What to do with "trouble" employee' in the forum.
    It is good that you recognize the validity of the issues raised, but how it was handled by the employee was uncalled for, unprofessional, and disloyal. I say she needs at least a disciplinary action from HR, if not termination.


    Let us know how this plays out.

  • This is a touchy subject.... Is the resident using it for medical reasons and are you in a state that recognizes medical marijuana? If you are, has the resident asked for reasonable accommodations under ADA to allow it? I am concluding NOT...

  • I am not currently on active duty (I have been out for more than 20 years), nor have I used off base housing as I was single at the time with no dependents so I lived on base in the barracks; but........

  • Perhaps Nate Thomas (a fellow insider and frequent contributor) can assist. I seem to recall he has experience with military housing.


    If the base housing officer cannot assist, perhaps your resident's commanding officer can.

    Now the question is, how accurate are the claims made on apartmentratings?

    If they are accurate, then the concerns brought up need to be addressed in addition to the personnel action needed.

    What are you doing to correct that?

  • Jennette; this will be my last comment on this thread.

    Please accept my apologies for what it is worth.


    In the state of California; if an animal is denied as a companion/service/therapy animal as a verified reasonable accomodation request made by a resident or prospective resident; OR special...

  • Jennette; I did not mean to sound so aggressive. Please accept my apologies.

    I have discussed this with several attorneys and other peers that I am networked with. The general consensus is that when someone invokes ADA rights for either reasonable accommodations or modifications, most things must...

  • Jenette; I too say this with a little humor.

    Once an animal is determined to be a service/companion/therapy animal and is needed by the human for whatever reason; it is NO LONGER A PET and size/breed restrictions along with pet rents and additional deposits are forbidden under ADA law. A service...

  • @ Jenette:

    Under ADA law; you really cannot decline a companion animal once it's need is documented and verified. Under the law, a companion animal is seen as a service animal.

    If your practice continues as you describe it; you are setting yourself up for a potential fair housing complaint. I am...

  • I appreciate your input Mindy; let me clarify a couple of things here:

    I would not market to shelers alone (faith based or otherwise) for an affordable propety. My marketing plans have included:
    - Craigslist
    - For Rent/ApartmentGuide/Pennysaver/local newspaper/rent.com/zillow/hotpads/etc. Both in...
