Poor management and poor building construction
The first thing I started to notice is small things inside the apartment, such as molding not lining up well, and some cabinet drawers not opening and closing correctly. The water pressure in the shower would change. Nothing major, just things you can learn to deal with. But after about 6 months there we got the chance to see how quickly the threw these apartments up .
After our first 6-month lease was up, they sent us a notice that if we wanted to renew, our rent would be going up. why is it going up? The answer we got was Its just our policy. Ok, is there any way to avoid this in the future? No matter what, if you stay, your rent will increase.
We liked the pool and the little gym, the business center and the large pool house with BBQ Grills! We have small children and were reassured that this would be a safe space for kids. Well, they say that no glass bottles are allowed at the pool, but its never been enforced. I constantly saw young people with cases of beer with glass bottles. The BBQ grills were never clean, people used them and left them dirty and disgusting. The pool house cannot be reserved. if childrens birthday party inside, any resident can just come in and watch TV, turn on music, do whatever to interrupt your party. You would think that the trash pick up wouldnt be a problem. Put your trash outside your door and the valet picks it up nightly. I dont think there was ever a full week with no problems. Trash wasnt picked up on time or sometimes even at all. and, the management wants to charge the renter when the trash is left outside.
The straw that broke the camels back was the pink vehicle notices. Not too long ago they went around and put notices on cars that didnt have resident stickers on them. they put the sticker on the drivers side window. my car has tinted windows. So, after the sticker sat in 90 degree heat for a few hours when I tried to remove it, it destroyed my tint. I have to pay to get my tint repaired.
Love this property!!! Daughter moving from Japan she is in the Air Force. We meet with Vanessa she is wondering answer all questions gave us all information that was needed for a smooth transition. Thank you.
