I could write a novel on this place. I move out tomorrow and I have never been so happy to put something behind me. It doesn't matter if this place is close to your job, or in your price range, I promise you can find something better. I moved in a little over a year ago and still have some things broken or never replaced from my initial move in. Also, my air conditioner was broken more months than it worked. Multiple times I had to get a hotel because I could not stay in my apartment due to the heat. My electricity bills were through the roof when the air conditioner was broken but the staff could care less. I was supposed to move into a two bedroom a few months into my current lease and asked to see it the day of, there were dead insects everywhere, holes in walls, floors, and the bathtubs, as well as old and dirty yellow appliances. There response to all of this, on top of it not having the wood floors it was supposed to have was that it was "move in ready." Thankfully I did not sign this lease or I would still have many months to go. In addition there are over 50 stray cats roaming the property that some of the tenants feed. You better hope you don't have dogs because they will soon have fleas and/or be attacked by the cats. There has also been multiple times where the water has been off over 24 hours with no notice. There was a shooting in the parking lot, as well as children running around unsupervised at all hours. People play music as loud as they want all through the night and early morning. The maintenance staff will not even knock when they show up, they will just automatically try to unlock your door and come in, but that is if they ever show up. If you're lucky enough to have them show up they MAY fix one of several things, or just look around, say they will be back with tools, supplies etc and just never show back up. My apartment has also smelled like cat urine since I moved in, and the outdoor closet smells like dead animals. It is so bad that every time someone from the office including staff or maintenance comes in they think I have cats. I actually only have one dog. My cabinets are all crooked and/or falling off, my blinds have been taped up, and there are holes all over my walls. When the air conditioner was broken it caused a leak in the roof and my ceiling fell down. The hole was there for many months with water leaking that I had to catch in a pan. When they finally came to fix it, they just put a piece of unpainted plywood to cover the hole, and the leak was still there. After all of this they still felt it would be appropriate to raise my rent if I were to renew my lease. I was not going to anyways, but their nerve is still unbelievable. The staff is incompetent, rude and could care less about you. I have called the city on them and I hope one day they get shut down or go out of business because a lot of what they do does not follow code or laws.
These apartments are a freaking joke. Their has been shooting, break in ect.... The management here is also terrible. I gave them my 60 day notice to vacate and they threw it away on purpose. When my new apartment called, they told them I never gave them a 60 day notice. Luckily I kept a copy and had it notarized or they would had giving me a broken lease. Don't move to these apartments, and if you are leaving keep all your stuff!!!!!
I would not recommend living at Churchill Park Apartments. Make sure you are certain of where you want to live and ask to see the apartment you are holding. If they can't show it to you, move on. Our apartment has cracks and poor drywall repairs from when the previous tenants made holes in the walls. The walls, shelves and cabinets are covered in layers of paint that caused our plates, cups, boxes and cans of food to get stuck. The tub had cracks in the paint and uneven tiles on the walls which are also painted and chipping. The repairs made when you put in a work order have been partly done. Shortcuts are taken when making repairs so you have to call them back and the maintenance person complains about returning. It is a lot to deal with. We just don't call them anymore and put it off. When I am in the office I hear the staff talk to potential tenants and just feel like saying, "Don't do it! The floors aren't faux wood. Its laminate!!" There has been 2 fires on the property, drug use, very loud music being played at different hours of the day/night and kids walking around everywhere unsupervised. Its sad.
I am a renter who'd never lived in an apartment before or knew much about the system until I moved to Texas. I had only a few weeks to look for an apartment complex near by my work place so I was trying to get something in budget but also one in the area closer to my job. When I spoke to one of the reps in office the customer service wasn't half bad but the more questions and concerns I had the more the answers I was getting in return changed. I had asked about prices not only with one person but two others and they all quoted me different prices on the same apartment. They explained to me things were in the process of being changed and that all the apartments were being upgraded so my move in date would have the possiblity of being changed. When I was supposed to sign my lease I asked if I could do a walk-through before movd in. If anyone saw what I did they would be just as relieved that I had not signed my lease yet. I did a walk through and was NOT impressed with what I saw. The kitchen was full of old yellow appliances, dirty walls, holes in not only the walls and covered with paint, but also in the floor, and bathtub. I asked them to fix it before I moved in and their responce was "It was move in ready." I did not have wood flooring like I was told. The cost of the wood flooring had not been mentioned as an additonal fee and when I pointed out the other problems they responded with "It takes too long to replace." I do not reccomend looking there, they will take your money and also take advantage of you.
