Thomas Underly entered contract with us in January 2007 as a General Contractor paid to remodel our home. Thomas failed to apply for a city permit, delaying the project three months. Thomas then argued with neighbors which led to further delays. He lied to the City of Chicago which had the City wanting to fine me as owner of the property. He fraudulantly stamped a set of architectural drawings using an architects stamp without his approval. Thomas has defaulted on payments to multiple sub-contractors for the three jobs he had active during 2007. He lied on draw statements to the title company stating revenue was targeted for particular sub-contractors but never forwarded the revenues. Thomas then lied to us the owners, stating simple items such as landscape, stairs, fencing were not a part of the $285,000 home remodel project even though there are email threads referencing that he wanted us to pick these products out. There are reports that he drinks heavily, gambles excessively and that former business associates have been murdered for their wrong dealings. Avoid Thomas Underly Design & Management LLC at all costs and his associated (Rouslan/Russell, Peter, Jerry, Chuck, MRC) cast of clowns and cheats. You will regret entering a business agreement with this cheat. What he fails to realize is what goes around, comes around.
