Doing Research On Land Where A Multi-Family Community
Posted 27 May 2011 - 11:58 PM
So I am starting to really wonder about this place. I went to the police station in reference to my old apartment to see if there were any murders or something (haha) they looked at me like I was off my rocker and I know the property management company isn't going to give me anything.
Do you guys know where I could begin looking? I live in Denton county, Texas -- Lewisville to be exact.

But I don't think that has anything to do with the things happening.
Maybe City hall?
Like how do you approach that situation when they ask why you want to see records? lol.

Several years ago, I lived in a complex where there was a fire in one of the units on the floor below mine. the fire started in the kitchen and the residents fled... not like "pull the alarm and wait outside for the fire department" fled... but run out of the building, slamming doors, NOT pulling the alarm, getting in their car and squeeling tires to get out of there= fled. Police and FD came, asked lots of questions "Do you know the people who live in ###?" (uh no, i just heard doors slamming people running down the hall and slamming the outer door.... )
I still don't know what happened: PD, won't say anything. (report might be available now... years later), management said "Oh something was just left on the stove." (uh why flee like bats outa hell?) NOTHING in the paper, Nothing on local news... just ZIP hushed up...
They don't want anything to impact on being able to rent out the units.
even though it only involved the one unit, several families were displaced for the night, (the whole building essentially) and of course none of us had any proof for the boss the next day of why were were useless and exhausted...

My advice is get to know the people that work there. They will be more willing to spill the beans about the place or to tell you about what other tenants have experianced. This worked well for me at 2 different complexes that I lived in with activity.Also see if you can find any past tenants to talk to and see if they had any experiances or know of anything that happened.

A resident here became a property manager and one of the units she said was painted entirely black and there was some strange paraphernalia left behind.
But for several apartments to have activity the only thing I can come up with is that their is something with the land, of course these apartments have been around since the 1980's so it could be a combination of land and previous tenants?
I don't know. I'll have to do some legwork I guess I'll start with city hall or maybe I can post the events here and you can confirm my suspicions about me being insane.

it's awful when the ownership keeps changing (complex getting "flipped" was going on at the old place) and the management is also transient and "squirrelly"
