Move in date: April 29th, 2015
Where do I start??
Prior to moving in I did my research and read the reviews just like you're doing now. Most of them are negative, but obviously I disregarded them, simply because everyone's experience is different.
Let me get straight to it.
It took about a month in a half just to obtain a move in date. I don't know what was the issue on management side, but I thought it was a little odd for an apartment to take so long to be ready. Management is cool, but the vibe they emit does feel like something's missing.
Day before move in a member from the staff did a walk through with me to make sure everything was working properly, and in tact. For the most part everything was operable. Of course there was some minor things I saw that had to be noted (Burn marks on kitchen & bathroom vinyl).. Cool,
I moved in on a Friday and by the 3rd day I noticed my A/C wasn't blowing out cool air. I put in a work order right away! A week later I didn't notice a change, and I went to the leasing office to put in another work order and one of the staff mentioned that this issue was a neighborhood wide issue, and that "They are going down the list to fix the issue in the affect buildings". Being the person that I am, I know there is a process for everything so I'm giving the benefit of the doubt, but since the temperature is rising, my patience is decreasing.
On May 14th, 2015 (Not even a full 2 weeks from my move in date) My apartment door was kicked in. The was the last straw for me. When my life is in jeopardy, I can't just wait around til something happens. I filed a police report, and a report with the apartment.
I requested that I leave immediately, but it was denied. I was told I have to give them a 60 days notice, and still pay for the month that I'm here. So basically pay for 3 months. I'm really disappointed in all that has occurred, and how management isn't doing anything, but saying I'm sorry.
I don't feel safe AT ALL. I work late and I come home to a group of men hanging out on the steps smoking and drinking on the stairway near my door, and a neighbor leaving a shot gun (could be a bee bee gun) outside their door! I just want to pay my last month rent and LEAVE!! It's hot, uncomfortable, and now I'm slightly paranoid.
I tried looking on the website to see who owns this property so I can write someone in a higher position, but its no where to be found.
It its possible, take heed to these reviews and don't move here. I know they're the cheapest in the area, but you deserve better.
