What is the case about?
Mason LLP represents current and former apartment renters across the country who allege that they were overcharged for rent by their property managers. These renters are claiming they have been overcharged by as much as 21% due to an illegal antitrust conspiracy and are owed a refund.
These claims are related to a class action against RealPage, a provider of real estate management software, and scores of national property management companies, alleging that RealPage facilitated a price-fixing cartel among its subscribe property managers which allowed them to fix rental prices. By subscribing to RealPage and sharing their data, the participating property managers unlawfully inflated lease prices paid by persons renting apartments in multifamily residential buildings.RealPage advertises on its website that its revenue management software can help its subscribers “outperform the market 5% to 7%.” In other words, by using RealPage to set their prices, the property managers could expect to charge 5-7% more than they could otherwise charge in a competitive market. Since the antitrust laws provide for treble damage, you could recover as much as 15-21% of the total rent you paid to any of RealPage’s property manager subscribers since 2016.
Mason LLP is not involved in the class action. It is preparing to bring individual direct action claims on behalf of it clients – individual apartment renters. By pursuing the strategy of litigating claims individually, Mason LLP will seek to maximize any potential recovery to each of its clients.
We estimate the overcharge to be 5-7% of the rent collected. The Sherman Act has a four year statute of limitations (from when the first class action was filed) and allow for treble damages. Accordingly, our clients may be able to recover as much as 21% of their rent payments for the past four years or more. For an average renter, that could amount to a recovery of $5,184 (before deduction of costs and fees).
