This apartment complex is actually the best I have ever lived in.. No dirt bags, no punk kids, never had car broken into.. Staff is very nice. Very clean apartments. Rarely do the reviews come up on the web but I would like to write this one. Most of the ppl that write these crappy reviews on places such as these are dirt bags and don't pay their bills.. destroy apartments and then wine when they can't get $$$ back for deposit.. Great apartments!! Oh and forgot to mention! Got my carpet cleaned for free after a year...
We had a similar experience to the previous review. At first it was great low deposit, good management. The management had changed twice in the 3 years, so they had no idea what the previous management had verified as far as damage to the apartment. So when we moved out, we were charged $600. Yes, we lived there for 3 years and there was some wear and tear, but to charge us $50 for a flimsy blind? And $200 to clean the place when I'm sure that the people they paid to do it didn't get paid that. We had cleaned and steamed carpets and were still charged for the service. Better yet, we tried to set up a payment for this bill we didn't even agree with since we were threatened with them taking us to collections and the front desk personnel had no idea about the payment plan we had just set up over the phone a few hours earlier. So as of now, we had given them a $100 check to start to pay our debt off and a month later they have yet to cash the check. Be careful moving out, make sure on the inspection you note every little piece of damage as you will be charged an extreme amount for it. Also, make sure you read the entire lease before signing, since they sneak in language that makes them able to charge you arbitrarily.
Don't move here. Low deposit seems nice, but it comes with a price. The apartments are just ok. Living on the ground floor was pretty awful because of the noise from neighbors. Parking is a joke. Moving out fees are insane. My roommate and I took really good care of our place....80$ carpet cleaning fee, 200$ cleaning fee, 150$ paint touch up fee, and 60$ to replace 1 of those cheap window blind panels. It's BS. The gym and pool are crap as well. Take the time to look around before settling on Northwind.
These people are scam artists and liars. A deplorable rental property company that preys on young college kids looking to get their own place while going to school. That was me a year ago, and I have really learned my lesson the hard way. *They use low security deposits to entice people to get into their units, then when the lease is up they screw them over with hidden fees and miscellaneous erroneous charges*. Stay away from this corporation and this apartment complex if you can! I am seriously regretting my decision not doing so. STAY AWAY FROM THESE PEOPLE!!
Staff is friendly and the apartments are decent. The cost is a little high to me.
