We rented a vacation home for 5 weeks in the Orlando area, and the landlord has refused to return our security deposit of $300. because "we did not leave the house according to his standards of ENGLAND!" He lives there and has a Vacation Management Company in Clermont.

My question is: [1] To what branch of city or government do these companies answer to. [2] Who monitors them?

I believe they fall under the jurisdiction of short-term/hotel/motel, and they are usually have to get a license with the county where they operate.

Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. Thank you,

Hi
I have been trying for over a year to get my $3000.00 back from Classic Rentals but they just refuse!!
I have basically been ignored. I am writing to the BBB as a last effort but do not hold out for a payment!
There are lots of rip-off companies in the vacation rental business and with margins tight they think by ripping us off they can make some money!!

I really mean this I hope you get your money.
Regards Martin

Wow. I havent heard these complaints before.. that is really bad. It gives a bad name for those that run things right. I would contact the state attorney generals office.

here is his web page

Florida Attorney General - Home Page

I expect they can assist you both. don't give up be the sqeaky wheel so others wont suffer.

Good Luck

its pretty much expected for people to try and keep your security deposit- i dont think ive ever got one back without a fight im sad to say. if they are doing it just because( which im sure they are) a brick thru there window gets the point across- hey if you cant get your money back why let them keep it? teach that prick a lesson.

No way do you still own it? Fire the management company, I am sure they keep doing it to other guests. I would call news channel 6
