Mercia Residential Properties, LLC. Reviews

  • May 30, 2017

I never rented from this company or Mark Patmore, but after inquiring about a house and viewing it, reading reviews and his behavior I'm never going to.

When I set up the showing, he was very curt and rude in his email; no greetings or salutations, no politeness whatsoever. I figured he might be a perfectly nice guy who just wasn't able to make that come across in email. Not so. He was incredibly brisque and rude when we met, too. He didn't even say hello, just "Who am I showing this house to?"

He showed me and my housemates a house which claimed to be newly renovated (but also said it'd been renovated in 2013...that was five years ago?) with new paint and carpets. It clearly wasn't. The house was a dump. The walls were dirty and damanged, the carpet was shredded, the whole house smelled kind of moldy. I am actually really impressed with house dirty the walls were; I have no idea how one gets their walls so gross. Either it wasn't actually renovated recently, or he's very bad at renovating.

It was also a really small, cramped, dark and generally unpleasant house. All of that could be okay, it's in a college neighborhood, and I've lived in kind of gross places before, and those are things that aren't really in a landlord's control. The problem, however, was the price. He was charging $1250 for the house, when I know for a fact that the house next door, which is nearly twice the size, much prettier, and actually recently renovated only goes for $1400.

I brought this up with him - "Hey, why are you charging so much for this? The bigger, nicer house next door is only barely more expensive?" and he put on an incredibly rude tone, interrupted me and yelled, "OH, well why don't you rent THAT one then? I'm the biggest landlord in this neighborhood, I THINK I know what I'm doing!"

I started thinking about spending a year stuck on a lease with this guy in charge of me. He clearly has no manners, a habit of bending the truth, and is incredibly cheap and greedy. I'm sure he won't care about this review, and there'll of course be some college students desperate enough for a place to live to rent from him. But since I have the ability to be pickier, I'm certainly going to avoid him.
