Leases in San Marcos

I just got back from a property management company, they have a nice little house I want.

I asked for a 2 year lease, they said no problem, then told me the lease ended in July. I said "2 years is supposed to be 24 months, not 16, what's the deal?" at which point she said they have ll their leases end in July for the college kids.

She then went on to tell me I could not take a copy of my lease with me without paying her $15 for the copy, not legal mind you, on standard paper, so I can have a friend look it over.


Anyone ever heard of this?

Agreed, but it's a major property management agency in the area.

Update.

I signed it. I have to give a 90 day move out notification, they said students have to give 180 days.

That's nuts, as they wont even sign leases three months out.

It's done though, thankfully.

That sounds shady especially not allowing you to take the lease for review without paying... I think that might be illegal actually.

I would have clarified that the $15 was to cover the cost of the paper and printer supplies. Then I would have faxed it to myself on their fax machine.

Why not charge you a buck for paper & ink or is this like a flat fee $10 to ship me a single washer?

Hart Properties here in SMTX is shady like this. I had a place over off Bishop through them.

Total jerks. Glad I dont have to deal with them any more.
