West Virginia Attorney General Will Sue Metro Property Management

West Virginia’s attorney general has filed a lawsuit against the state’s largest residential landlord. State Attorney General Patrick Morrisey is taking Metro Property Management to court, alleging the company charged its tenants numerous fees in violation of state consumer protection laws. Metro Property Management caters to many college students in Morgantown and other campus communities. They are accused of charging tenants a nonrefundable fee in addition to the standard damage deposit, to prepare rental units for the next tenant. By law, the responsibility to deliver a suitable dwelling falls on the landlord. Attempts to pass that on to the tenant violate West Virginia’s Consumer Credit and Protection Act.
