The staff was very friendly. Loved the set up of the home.
Peaceful and quiet! The apartments are also beautiful! Get exactly what you pay for! :) already have recommended people here:).
My husband and I lived in Somerset at Trussville for two years. No pets. No children. We paid over $1100 each month for a 2/2 with a garage and that included water, sewer, garbage, and required insurance (only covers Somerset). When we moved in, we were NOT told that the new carpet installed was expected to last 5 years. At the move-out inspection, we were told by the assistant property manager that the carpet had a buckle in it and there were areas with significant wear and that we would be paying to replace the carpet. I can assure you that all we ever did was walk on the carpet normal wear and tear! I have watched the carpet and padding be cut outside on the sidewalk and installed in many of those apartments over the course of the two years I lived there. It is my opinion that it is VERY CHEAP quality and is not made to last more than one year. We consulted with a lawyer and were told that the lease is written in such a way that they can force their residents to pay for anything that the management deems not to be normal wear and tear. You have 15 days to pay 50% of the final bill or they will send you to collections. We took the advice of the lawyer and paid our bill in full because we felt it wasnt worth having our credit ruined over. I have since spoken to several former residents and they have the same story as ours. While the lawyer told us that what they are doing is not illegal, it is very much unethical. I have also spoken to a former employee of Somerset who told me that, as a leasing agent, she was not allowed to do final inspections, but she did notice that, more often than not, security deposits were seized to cover damages and carpet was replaced at even the slightest hint of a stain.
Please also know that these apartments are in the City of Birmingham. Zoned for Birmingham City Schools NOT Trussville.
Not a good experience at all
Apartment dirty with bad odor in master bedroom
Toilet seats do not fit toilets, one toilet loose from wall
Office people uncooperative
!!!!!!BEWARE!!!!!! These people are soooooo unethical!! I submitted my application but changed my mind less than 30 minutes later, realizing I acted too hastily as they really didn't have exactly what I was looking for. I mean who has not made a hasty decision? The so-called "application fee" is supposed to cover a credit check and background check, which were not done because I contacted them minutes within leaving the office. The office personnel obviously were seeing free $$$$. I mean how greedy can a place be, and obviously do desperate to rent an apartment. There is no charge to show an apartment, so apparently they want $250 for 2-3 sheets of paper. Seriously????
