The Pappas Tenant Association is a group of present and past tenants of the Louis Pappas Real Estate Trust Corporation, most of whom live or work in the Crystal City / Arlington, VA area. It was founded in 1994. This World Wide Web page serves as a forum for discussion and information concerning issues related to the rental of property from the Pappas Trust. The PTA seeks to prevent conflict before it arises, and facilitate smooth and peaceful resolution of issues between the tenants and management.
Now prospective tenants at least have the opportunity to search Yahoo for
the landlord's name, see what experiences others have had, and decide if they want to sign
a lease. No longer can landlords get away with not returning security deposits,
thinking no one will know about it. It is a New Age - of the Internet, and easy
access to knowledge.

But the tenant had to make repeated requests and start pursuing legal action to get his promised funds. This was difficult as he had moved over 1000 miles away. The time and trouble to get his funds was more than the deposit itself.
This is often the case, when tenants cannot afford the funds or time off from work to pursue justice. Meanwhile, landlords have the luxury of time, money, and may even purchase special considerations.

The meditators were ideal tenants. They naturally fulfilled all tenant responsibilities, generously made improvements at their own expense, and left the house in pefect condition.
Nevertheless, in 1993 Pappas refused to return the TM Center's $1000
security deposit. In the interests of peace, they transcended the issue. They
did not pursue legal action.
