So I just moved (*whew*), and everything was accounted for before I left.
...except for my bike.
After doing a final walk through of the place, I remembered my bike, which was the last thing I needed to grab. I went outside to where the bike rack was... Or used to be. I look all around me to find that it was moved 50 or so feet away, across the parking lot, completely empty, save for a few heavy-duty locks.
I went to go ask my landlady what happened to all the bikes, as mine was on the rack, and she said that the maintenance guy came in and took them all, as they, and I quote, "weren't whole bikes anymore."...ummm, okay?
I can assure you, my bike was whole the last I checked, with the wheel and frame both locked up to the rack so as to discourage theft of the front wheel.
I wasn't moved out before all of the bikes were removed, I had made all my payments on time and in full, and was overall a model tenant. Did they have a right to take my bike, even if it wasn't "whole" anymore? I hadn't actually gone out to look at the bike rack in a while, thinking it would be there when I needed/wanted it. So maybe something was removed from it, like the seat or back wheel. Still, though, what gives? Have any of you heard of anything like this, or had this happen to you (and what did you do if something like it did?)
If they don't have it anymore, I expect to be reimbursed (it was $250, new), on top of my $400 security deposit. It seems illegal and down right uncalled for imo.
