Weve got interim orders done by the court to ask EFL to change back the power to ensure these people are not remaining in the dark and theres no other innovative practices. Weve had instances of lockouts where the occupant heads out to choose their kids and by the time they come back from the nannys or come back from some where they find that theres a new padlock on the home.”

Abraham states in many cases the property managers are utilizing creative techniques against their occupants.

The account is predominately the property managers account. Now in the case of dispute we find that proprietors feel that they cant leave it and theyll ask and go EFL to disconnect.”

And in those instances we have brought to justice. We ensure our attorneys make proper representation. If therere interim orders that requires to be taken we take interim orders so that everything is done overboard.”
