I just received a call back from LEC and apparently the asset manager I was working with is no longer working with the company. It sounds like this has happened to a number of agents this particular AM was working with. They apologized and said it is their policy to always pay within 30 days. My check is being sent immediately.
I received an asset for initial services (occupancy check, re-key, bid for trash-out and repairs) from LEC this week and am looking forward to more... I will let everyone know how it goes with payment, etc.
