Red Real Estates Associates LLC. Max Mera, ILCODICEDAMAICCI LLC, Max Alberto, Mera Ulloa Deposit Theft Miami Florida
I signed a lease with him on 8/21/22 for 3908 NW 207th Road Miami Gardens, FL 33055, a residential home he owns under ILCODICEDAMAICCI LLC. I used a realtor and so did he to ensure our documents were correct. We signed a standard FL Realtors lease together for 3908 NW 207th Road Miami Gardens, FL 33055 at $3,500/month. I am also Section 8 voucher recipient, and this lease was subject to sect 8 approval and his cooperation. The deposit was 100% refundable and subject to the same sect 8 approval and his corporation. He also signed a addendum explicitly stating the lease and is subject to sect 8 approval, and the deposit is 100% refundable if he or sect 8 does not approve the lease. I gave Max Mera a $3,500 deposit via bank deposit to his account at Citi bank, Acct # 3290400860 in Coral Gables, FL on 8/23/22. From that time forward, both my realtor and his realtor worked together to process the sect 8 approval process. Max initially agreed to work with section 8 and the realtors when we signed the lease but then later on 10/10/22, before the lease started, Max changed his mind and declined to accept the section 8 voucher. Section 8 asked max to reduce the lease rate from $3,500 to $2,700 and he declined to accept it and thereby choose not to cooperate further with me or sect 8 and the lease of 3908 NW 207th Road Miami Gardens, FL 33055 to me. I then requested with the guidance of my realtor via certified mail to his address (and email and text message) that he return the $3,500 depsoit being he said choose not moving forward and he advised he was unable to return the deposit until 11/7/22 for no specific reason. He also never notified me in writing of any reasons why he does not have my depsoit available to be returned. I then over several requests in the following weeks and asked him to return the depsoit and to no avail did he. I followed up with him on 11/7/22 for the depsoit again and he said he would return it after he rented his house out to someone else.
