 Alvin White planned to move into an apartment on the 3100 block of Buddy Lawrence earlier this month.
He paid more than $1100.00 to Bea Silva, who his daughter and girlfriend tell the Troubleshooters actually owns the property.  The money was for first month's rent and security deposit.  
But White's daughter insists even tho he moved his stuff into the apartment, it wasn't ready on February 4th as promised by a man named Robert Montalvo.
"The tub, you can fill it up, or take a shower, when the water starts to fill up, it's not gonna go away for like 2 and a half hours," White's daughter Cassandra Callandret told the Troubleshooters.     
Plus, Callandret pointed out, there's still a roach problem.  

     "Did you sign anything ?" the Troubleshooters asked Callandret.  "no.  He gave us a blank lease, and told us to fill it out."
And that's why White believes he's owed him a refund.
"He told me I wasn't getting it back.  He told me good luck trying to get it back.  So I filed some papers on him .  I'm taking him to court so I can get my money back," White said from his hospital bed.  He was admitted last night
unrelated to the apartment.

     But he's taking this to court.  His daughter says a constable left this card on Montalvo's front door a few days ago. 
Callandret says Montalvo sent White this text message dated February 17th.  It gives White 3 options for resolution, including going to court.
"It'll cost you at least $175.00.  You have a choice, but there will be no refunds." 
     The Troubleshooters went to the address listed for Bea Silva, but no one answered.
We also left 2 messages for Robert Montalvo, but he has not returned our call.
