Maryland Tenants File Class Action Against Westminster Management to Stop Illegal Fee Collection Practices

Maryland tenants file class action against Westminster Management to stop illegal fee collection practices (Press Release)Two Maryland residents filed a class action lawsuit challenging Westminster Management, LLC’s alleged practice of charging its tenants excessive, illegal fees. The lawsuit contends that Westminster Management, LLC, JK2 Westminster, LLC, Dutch Village, LLC, and Carroll Park Holdings, LLC (collectively Westminster) charge tenants excessive, illegal fees, regularly misapply tenants’ subsequent payments in part to the illegal fees, and then deem the next rent payments “late” to justify additional excessive fees. Westminster demands payment of these improper fees under threat of eviction.

Andy Freeman and Jean Zachariasiewicz, along with the attorneys at the Public Justice Center and Santoni, Vocci & Ortega, LLC, are representing the plaintiffs.
