BY ORDER OF THE U.S. DISTRICT COURT FOR THE DISTRICT OF MARYLAND

If RealPage Utility Management, Inc. sent you a monthly statement pertaining to utility usage concerning a Maryland residence, which included an administration fee, during the period beginning April 1, 2017 through June 30, 2023, you could be part of a Class Action Settlement.

The U.S. District Court for the District of Maryland authorized this Notice.
This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

  • Through a proposed class action settlement, RealPage Utility Management, Inc. has agreed without any admission of wrongdoing to resolve a lawsuit over whether RealPage Utility Management, Inc. acted as a collection agency and charged administrative fees to Maryland tenants without a collection agency license, allegedly in violation of Maryland law.
  • The proposed class action settlement avoids costs and risks from continuing the lawsuit, pays money to Settlement Class Members who file Valid Claims, and releases RealPage Utility Management, Inc. from liability to Class Members.
  • Under the proposed settlement, RealPage Utility Management, Inc. will fund a Settlement Fund of $1,800,000. This Settlement Fund will be used to make payments to all Class Members who file Valid Claims, after deducting amounts to pay Class counsel’s expenses and attorneys’ fees. In return, RealPage Utility Management, Inc. will be released from liability to any Class Members.
  • Court-appointed lawyers for Class Members will ask the Court to approve a payment of 1/3 of the Settlement Fund as attorneys’ fees, plus their expenses of litigation, for investigating the facts, litigating the case, and negotiating the settlement. In addition, RealPage Utility Management, Inc. has agreed to pay the Class representative an incentive payment of up to $15,000 in addition to the Settlement Fund, subject to Court Approval.
  • The two sides disagree on whether a class action could have been maintained, whether RealPage Utility Management, Inc. did anything wrong, and how much money was at stake.
  • If you are a Settlement Class Member, your legal rights are affected whether you act, or don’t act. Read the Notice carefully.
