UPDATE: Autumn Ridge asks unhappy tenant to surrender deposit

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The landlord at the Autumn Ridge Apartments has decided to respond to KCBD's questions one day after the initial story aired.

Diana Lopez contacted us after she says the complex on 82nd and Avenue U was deceitful and didn't inform her of a murder that took place in her unit two months prior.  Autumn Ridge's landlord, Sherry Langford, originally declined to comment, but has since responded to our questions:

1.)    What is your policy on discussing previous tenants and events that have happened on the property?

Langford: "It is totally dependent on the nature of the event.  Our general policy is to protect privacy and confidentiality of present and previous tenants.  Policies are not in writing".

2.)    Did you ever consider telling Lopez about the murder?

"She made no such inquiry so it was not discussed. The apartment had been totally renovated so the answer is "no".

3.)    Would you live there?

"I would if I needed a 1 bedroom. It is like new!"

4.)    Why won't you let her out of her lease or refund her deposit?

"She signed the contract  I offered to release her if she surrendered her deposit.  She still has the keys".

5.)    Will you tell tenants in the future what happened there?

"I will if they ask".
