A Facebook Look Back at Kier Property Management's neglect and mis-management of the Peery Apartments between 2005 and 2009, and the resulting damage it caused to the building.
Kier Management claims that they are not responsible for any of this damage, and they have no idea how the property became so severely dilapidated while it was in their care. Considering that they were in constant control of the building, and under contract to manage and maintain it when the damage occurred, it's hard to believe any of the lies they tell.
Highlights of what Kier Management did to my building, during the 4-years that they were under contract to manage and maintain it for me. Unbelievably, Kier denies responsibility for doing any of this, even though none of it existed before I hired them. Most of these videos document the condition of the building when our contract terminated.
Now Kier Management is suing me, for putting videos like these on the internet, where everyone can see what they did. I never could keep a secret.
Documenting some of the numerous fire, health, and building code violations, caused and maintained by Kier Property Management, and their failure to maintain and care for this property as required under our contract together. It's really a miracle that none of my tenants were killed by Kier's negligent mismanagement of this property. Tragically, not all Kier tenants have been that lucky.
A murder, a violent rape, drug and prostitution crimes upon the property, broken windows, leaking pipes, fire hazards everywhere you looked and tenants running amok doing whatever damage they could to this building.... THIS was the condition of the building in December, 2009 after Kier had run it (into the ground) for 4 years.
Video #1: Wells Fargo Bank threw Federal requirements and their own bank policy right out the window, when opening two business checking accounts, in my name, for Kier Property Management in Ogden, Utah. Wells Fargo failed to notify me that these accounts had been opened illegally, and allowed them to remain open for 4 years. The result was the misappropriation of tens of thousands of dollars in phony maintenance, management, and repair charges, and the near destruction of my building by Kier Management
Video #2: By refusing to open the same type of business accounts for me, that they opened for Kier Management, Wells Fargo Bank established that they illegally opened these accounts for Kier Management. You can hear the Wells Fargo Bank employee state that without the required supporting documentation, her computer won't even let her proceed further. (but it did for Kier Management).
Video #3: This video is an animated depiction of how Kier Management likely got 2 business checking accounts opened, in my name, with Wells Fargo Bank in Ogden, Utah without ever providing any of the supporting documentation that is required by law in order to do so. Wells Fargo allowed these illegal accounts to remain open for 4 years, without ever notifying me that the accounts were not in good standing, which in turn, enabled Kier Management to misappropriate tens of thousands of dollars from the building's accounts.
Video #4: After discovering that I was aware that Wells Fargo had illegally opened two business bank accounts for them, Kier Management attempted to shred any documentation about the accounts, including telling me that the deposit slip books for these accounts had been shredded, per Kier company policy. Thankfully, (as rare as they are), an honest Kier employee, (Pam Tomney) mistakenly turned the deposit records over to me. They look remarkably good for having gone through a shredder, right?
Video #5: UPDATE: 4/01/2013 After filing a complaint with the CFPB, Wells Fargo responded with information that did not even pertain to this matter. The CFPB escalated their investigation and has referred my complaint to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency for further investigation.
Video #6: UPDATE on the CFPB investigation. Wells Fargo responded to the CFPB with account information that didn't pertain to this case. The account that WFB referred to in their response to the CFPB was opened 4 years AFTER this crime took place.
Video #7: UPDATE on the OCC investigation. After providing erroneous information to the CFPB, Wells Fargo responded to the OCC with partial and misleading information, to draw attention away from this fraud.
ABC News coverage on the tragic and senseless death of Kier Management's tenant, Dreux Gabler at the Hilltop Apartments in Denver Colorado, after a fire escape railing gave way.
Needed repairs to the seriously deteriorated and un-maintained fire escape had been pointed out to Kier Property Management, by their own employees, for years.
Kier's repeated position? "The needed repairs were not in the budget"... Kier's statement is only slightly suspect, considering that basketball star, Shaquille O'Neal owns this Denver, CO tenement. (and 17 others just like it).
Adding to this horrible tragedy, is the fact that HUD inspected this building just weeks earlier. The building scored a 96 out of 100 and the fire escape was never mentioned in the inspection report.
City of Denver inspectors had recently inspected the fire escape and found it to be suitable. The gave this stairway to death a passing score, and renewed the permit.
Evidently, Kier's ability to properly and adequately maintain the buildings they manage, remains consistent from state to state. DEPLORABLE !
