My daughter, who is 21 years old, divorced and victim of domestic violence had applied at Coastal Law School and Flats at UNF which was previously known as Flats at Kernan was one of the recommended places to rent for students. July 2014, right before the school started we went to look at the apartment place and she was told from the leasing office that the place is limited and she should sign in however it is not a lease it is just the initial work. And that she will sign the lease at the time she collects the key which will me mid August. She informed at the end of July 2014 that she is not interested but they told her they have already approved her and she cannot cancel the lease and she is liable for next 12 months of rent. She worked with the law firm in Fort Myers at that time she had lawyer friend called there corporate office to resolve the matter by paying few months rents in order to relieve her but it was denied. I reported to Florida Consumer Services and BBB and they could not resolve it. Upto this day we are paying the rent of $745 per month and we do not have the key to the apartment. She never took the possession of the apartment and they refuse to sub lease to anyone else because they are not a full capacity. They will not budge at all. The apartment complex was sold of University of North Florida we even tried to negogiate it but they refuse to help. This is such a rip off and taking advantage of students who do not have the money to pay for school but have to pay for the apartment which is NOT meant to be. I find it very unusual that how inconsiderate companies are nowadays. I will never recommend anyone to do business with them. Its a shame now that is own by UNF and they are acting in such a manner. A State School who does not care about the people in own state. .
