Stop Unfair Utility Charges Against Tenants at Southern Towers
From: [Your Name]
As a tenant at Southern Towers Apartments in Alexandria Virginia, I am writing to urge you to stop CIM's outrageous utility bill charges that make Southern Towers unaffordable for working families like mine
For years before CIM bought the complex, tenants only paid for water and trash, and the rest of the utilities were included with our rent. CIM now forces tenants to pay twice for utilities - both with higher rent and additional electric, gas, sewer, and administration fees.
We are paying hundreds more in utilities on top of rising rent. Tenants with families are charged higher rates based on occupancy instead of actual usage.
Southern Towers has been home to African immigrant families for decades. We want our community and families to thrive. We are tired of CIM pushing out hard-working families for profit. That is why we are coming together to move CIM to make Southern Towers affordable for working families.
CIM’s greed is destroying our community, and we are calling for CIM to stop the excessive utility charges and high rent increases.
