Me and my roommates have leased a home from Andy Sauer in Buffalo, New York this year. We are college students at University at Buffalo, and the rent for this particular home of Andy’s was reasonable, so we decided to lease it for a year. At first he seemed like nice guy who wouldn’t try to screw us over in any way. He promised there would be no hidden charges within our lease agreement, and also promised that he would never stop by our home completely unnanounced. According to him there would always be at least a 10 minute notice before he arrived. That was of course a complete lie. Recently he informed us of a few hefty charges that we all need to pay, which he had never mentioned previously. Andy insists that he told us all about these charges when we initially signed the lease, but for some reason none of our several roommates can remember this. It is pretty obvious that he leaves these charges out of his pitch to sell the home, which therefore makes it look more attractive. This is not the only case of BS that he has tried to pull on us. One time he found a small stain in one of the rooms of the house, and tried to impose some kind of fee for it. He made up a completely fake name for this particular kind of stain, and will probably be trying to get us to pay for it in the very near future. Hopefully he comes to his senses and realizes that it is unethical for him to squeeze every dime that he possibly can out of his tenants. As I mentioned above, it is extremely annoying how he will drop by all the time without any notice or warning. He is constantly in and out of our house, along with his less than capable handyman. This brings up another point. He often decides to do some work on the house, which will completely block off a room or hallway. And even though he promises the work will be done on a certain deadline, it will almost always take at least a few weeks longer. Beware if you plan to rent a home from him. If you are a UB student and are looking for a home in the University Heights, you should steer clear of Andy Sauer. Especially if you like to have people over or have parties, since he also hates when his tenants have friends.
