Ill first start by saying I love reviews and I alway try to give places the benefit of doubt when I encounter negative reviews. Well when it comes to this place that was my mistake. This experience has been so horrible that I am up at 10:42PM after a dreaded long day to EXPRESS how The Blairs has made my transition into Maryland less than satisfactory. I would have NEVER wrote a review if they resolved the issue but clearly they have not since I am leaving this review for you all today.
Besides the incompetent leasing office, I have had issues since day one of moving into my unit. The VERY first night of moving in a roach appeared. I have only lived in my unit for about 3 1/2 weeks. There have been roaches SINCE DAY ONE daily. They have came from the kitchen and bathroom areas. We have kept the place SPOTLESS. We take all trash to the trash chute immediately and spray every morning and night. The problem still persist. We have done more than the leasing office who is OBLIGATED by Montgomery County Housing Code to take care of pest issues. This has been a large inconvenience to my roommate and I. We have to keep the lights on every night fearful a roach will come out if we turn the lights off. It is an inconvenience to spend 15-20mins spraying before we leave in the morning and 15-20mins spraying before bed every night. It is an inconvenience and stressful to be fearful that a roach will appear when I walk into my bathroom. It is inconvenient to be fearful while cooking that a roach will appear on the counter WHICH HAS HAPPENED AND MAKES ME NOT WANT TO COOK IN MY OWN HOME. The business office claims they are sincerely sorry and are working diligently to resolve the issue but the problem still remains and they don't do anything besides say sorry. I don't understand how there is a roach problem in a new apartment when we asked for them to spray for p
I live in the Blairs East building. My overall experience has been ok. If thinking of moving here, just be mindful that it is EXTREMELY NOISY. The A/C/heat is managed by the building and they don't turn it on until the temperature is consistent (right before the summer).
"Open your windows," they tell you. Well, be ready to feel like you live right next to a busy airport, the noise is unbearable (train, metro, cargo train, ambulance, police, cars, everything together!. Moving out soon!
Staff tend to be very nice, but my unit is loaded with cockroaches and is basically uninhabitable. Despite numerous treatments (almost weekly?), the problem has only escalated. My apartment is clean, there is no food left out - no water...the trash is emptied immediately. I will not cook in my own apartment, and it's now to the point that I won't even sleep there unless I absolutely need to.
I requested to be released from my lease 2 weeks early so that I could move to another apartment elsewhere - sadly I was told NO and I need pay out the lease for an apartment I refuse to stay in because it's overrun with roaches.
It's absolutely disgusting. I'm sure not all units have this problem, but by moving in, you're taking a chance that you'll be stuck in a roach motel. And paying dearly for it. Don't do it!
