Man's dispute with property management company ends in name calling

Posted: Updated:
KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) -  A man's battle with a property management company ends in name calling-- months after he moved out.

 Sean Kelly received his deposit back from T.C. Lewis Property Management with FOR: "being a cry baby" written on the memo line.
  
 Kelly said the dispute began back in  May 2013 when he and his wife moved out of the home they rented from T.C. Lewis. Kelly said after about two months he realized he never received $1,400 deposit back from the company. But Kelly said when he contacted T.C. Lewis the company sent him a letter listing damages to the home he rented. Kelly claims the letter went on to say he would not receive any of his deposit back.

 Sean Kelly then hired an attorney and said he proved that he and his wife weren't responsible for some of the damages listed in the letter. They reached a settlement and Kelly received part of his deposit. He said when he saw what someone at the property management company wrote, "for being a cry baby", he was hurt and disappointed.

 "The fact that he wrote something like that on the check to me when that was the end of it.   I mean, all he had to do was write the check," said Kelly.

    News channel 11 tried to get T.C. Lewis Properties to comment but have yet to receive a response.
