BALTIMORE (Legal Newsline) – The Maryland Office of the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division has filed charges against Perry Willey Rental and its owners for allegedly failing to deliver properties it accepted prepaid rent and security deposits for, Attorney General Brian E. Frosh announced.
According to claims, Perry Willey Rental and its owners, Perry Willey and Jaime Dailey, offered residential units for rent in the Salisbury area. The defendants accepted prepaid rent and security deposits from consumers, yet purportedly failed to provide possession of the rented home or a refund.
"Moving to a new home can be stressful enough, but discovering you don't have a home after you have paid your deposit and given up your old lease can be disruptive and overwhelming," Frosh said. "Consumers who paid a security deposit and prepaid rent should get possession of the property or a full refund. We will take all necessary action to protect consumers who pay deposits in reliance on a landlord's promise but are given nothing."
Frosh’s office seeks injunctive relief, restitution to consumers, and civil penalties for alleged violations of the Consumer Protection Act.
