Management of Flooded Apartment Says They are Fixing the Problem

SACRAMENTO—

The old saying goes “when it rains, it pours.”

“We’re not talking about a minor leak here,” said Melanie James, a tenant at Rosedown Apartments.

We’re talking about water falling from the ceiling of James’ apartment.

When we approached the management office they initially told us it was all sorted out.

“We took care of it,” a management representative said.

Marin: “What did you take care of exactly?”

“The vent,” the representative said.

Marin: “So there’s no more water?”

“Not anymore,” the representative said.

But the water is still there. Later, she told FOX40 it will take more time to fix.

“Things don’t get fixed within a couple of hours,” the representative said.

Marin: “OK, so right now it’s Tuesday afternoon, when are you taking care of it?”

“We are taking care of it since Tuesday morning, the representative said.

Marin: “So since this morning?”

“Yes,” the representative said.

But James says no one came to her apartment to even see what was going on until we showed up.

“Where’s your decency for the next human being? This is outrageous,” James said.

By late afternoon, the president of Coastline Real Estate Advisors showed up at the apartment complex to talk to James.

“He says there are going to fix things now. Let’s hope they do,” James said.
