Let me start of by saying that the property that I was attempting to lease is STILL up for rent. This company could’ve been profiting my hard-earned money since February. I’m actually happy to see that they haven’t leased it out but not surprised due to their ridiculous stipulations. I do although feel like I dodged a bullet and saved myself the headache. My husband and I recently had a baby and this property in Denver Harbor was convenient for us considering my in-laws live here and my mother in law babysits her when we go to work. I don’t think many people with “perfect credit” would opt to live here but it seems like that is what the owners of Bluebonnet Rentals are looking for (good luck). We don’t have perfect credit scores, and if I did, I’d be looking to purchase, not rent a home. My father-in-law even co-signed for us which put him in a financial responsibility for the lease of the house as well. Apparently that was not enough for Mrs. Fang. Typical leases for homes ask for 1 months rent as a deposit but she had the audacity to try to take advantage of me and ask for TWO months rent as a deposit. She also proceeded to question me about my emotional support dog that I’ve had for 3 years. In case you didn’t know, legally, a landlord is not allowed to charge you rent for an emotional support animal.
“Under Federal Fair Housing Laws, Emotional Support Animals must have access to apartments with a no-pet policy and are exempt from pet-related fees. Pets that provide people with comfort have unique housing rights. ... Emotional Support Animals help aid with an emotional or mental disability.”
Mrs. Fang couldn’t stand the fact that I would not be required to pay a pet deposit or rent for my dog so she kept asking me, “So you have an emotional support dog? You NEED emotional support?” Almost as if it was absurd or unheard of.
This conversation with her completely rubbed me the wrong way and at first, I was willing to let it go and move forward with her requirements she asked of me but ultimately decided Bluebonnet Rentals would not be the right fit for me or my family. I am writing this review to bring awareness about this company and the unprofessional behavior I encountered. I am happy that I am not stuck in a contract with these people.
