Do not rent from Alan Derouchie. My daughter did, and when she moved out, he refused to return her $350 security deposit, with no good reason. She took him to small claims court, and the judge found in her favor. Alan was court ordered to pay her the money. He still has not paid it back. My daughter even went so far as to go through Canton to get his wages garnished. He refuses still to follow court orders!!
My daughter finally got her money because she went through the proper legal process. The court put a lein on all his property, and when he tried to sell, he couldn't until he paid her off. hahahahahahahaha

I happen to rent from Al Miller , and I find it hard to beleive what some of you have put on here. When I was looking for a place I am very glad that I got in touch with Al , through a friend of mine who happened to be moving.He has very nice places and they dont look like the ghetto either. I would have pitched a tent somewhere before I moved on Sycamore street.Drive by and see if youur places look as good as what he is offering. The ones on here complaining , are probably the ones who done some of the damages to his property. I am glad to be a tennant of Al Millers. Most of his tennants have been with him awhile, one 30 years, so he is a real bad guy right ?

Robert perras rents several house's. Charges water, has coin laundry, and does everything the cheapest way and doesn't fix anything the right way. I seen one of his places have three renters in it in a three month span, one couple was there a week, must be something severally wrong. I rented a place and wish I new what I know now before I moved in what a headache it was, always paid rent on time, never complained, just wanted a place that wasn't fallen apart, that's why I moved, watch out for him very crooked!!

There is not many good landlords anymore. Most are divorced or un-happily married who are just looking to get laid because they cant get from their women

So who are some of teh worst landlords here in Massena and why? Who are some of the best, again why? I am looking to rent here and want to steer clear of the jerks and the slumlords. Any help would rock!!!
When you have welfare rats in your house and they punch holes in the walls, trash it and the police raid it and find them all in another world and you have a few thousand in repairs you hesitate in waisting any more money and time on a loosing battle. Yes, there are a few good people out there but there are in these days a lot more troublesom ones. Some landlords cant make the mortgage payments when the tenants spend their money on parties and drugs as many do and can't pay the rent. Yes there are nice homes with nice people in them but the bad homes are generally owned by landlords that have been skinned before and have learned a lesson. It takes a few bad ones to ruin it for the rest.

Read the lease agreement very carefully you say? What about the one that cuts the window screen and crawls in and has his furniture moved in before you can give him the keys because he is afraid you will find out who he is and not rent to him. The house use to look nice. Damaged walls,split door casings, stolen property taken to sell so they could buy more alcohol and drugs and more. Been there and seen it all.

Mike and Jessica Baxter do not take care of their tenants. You call and call for them to come fix something and they never show. Get excuses like they forgot bc they have so many tenants they cant keep them straight.We had to threaten them with calling the fire chief before they finally showed up to fix something. They remembered to pick up our rent on time though didnt they? Definetly DO NOT rent from these people!

<quoted text>your nothing but a discriminating landlord for checking credit reports. it takes years to fix your credit when you have bad times. shame on you! go waste your landlord money at the casino.
If your credit isnt good then you dont pay your bills and wont pay your rent.i dont want excuses,i want the rent when its due.

Most good landlords have their places filled, because they found good tenants and hung on to them by taking care of them. Good luck with your search. My tenants find me usually, by referrals from previous tenants. I am easy to get along with, answer my cell phone when you call me (yes, I give you my personal cell number), and fix things immediately if they break. I have been burned, took my lumps, and now wait to rent to the right person.
sounds great, but do you accept animals? its nearly impossible renting a place with a large breed dog.
