Went to look at an apartment today, walked in to the leasing office and greated a women who I thought was a leading agent, but turned out to be a tenant who was canceling her lease. No one was in the office for 15 minutes. Finally someone walked in and told the women she couldn't help her because she had just started here. 5 minutes after that (mind you, I still have been greated by anyone who works there) a guy named Micheal walked in, with a very angry mood, and very disorganized. At this time I just walked out. Won't be coming back either.
STAY AWAY.... DO NOT MOVE HERE. One star is the lowest I can give on this site, if I was allowed, I would give it negative 5 stars. Rudest management staff I have ever encountered. They do not have any respect for you whatsoever. They talk down to you and ignore any of your requests. You can never call the office and reach someone, you must go in person. If you request to speak to the property manager, she is "always out on business." We (my husband, son and I) have lived here for 3 years. Not because we want to, but because we cannot afford another complex's rates for a 2 bedroom apartment. Our lease is up in next month, but we are not allowed to move out since we did not give them 60 day notice. We are required to stay and pay $350 extra dollars a month for rent to meet the 60 day move-out notice. Even if we wanted to stay, our rent rate would go from $930/month to $1,130/month. Um why, it is still the same crappy apartment, you have done nothing to improve it!!! PESTS: We pay a monthly fee for "pest control" but I am wondering if it is to get rid of the pests, or invite them in. Even when the exterminator came to our unit, it still did not help. Roaches still invade no matter how much spraying and prevention you do. Even worse is we have rodents; rats, squirrels, etc. running around in the ceilings and wall spaces. We have called, put in service requests and camped out in the leasing office trying to get someone to comes out to help, NO ONE HAS COME... It has been over a month. PARKING: They also charge you $10 per vehicle for first come, first served parking. What the hell? I pay to not be able to park?! The spots are always full and I often find myself driving around and around until finally having to park on the street. Waste of my time and gas, so we bought a reserved spot for an extra $25/month... other people still park in our spot and the office "cannot tow them." What am I paying you for? TRASH SERVICE: We are charged a trash fee and a trash collection services fee.There are dumpsters on site that you more than capable to accessing yourself, but I am not allowed to opt out of this $31 per month fee. I can walk to the dumpster myself. I do not need someone stomping up the stairs late at night (after 10pm) and dropping my trash from the 3rd floor to the bottom and making a mess in the process. Lastly, we have put in 113 service requests while living here for the 3 years. Each time, the office ignored our request for someone to come resolve these issues for several DAYS. When maintenance finally came, they do not speak English so you cannot elaborate or ask questions and they can only fix so much. Many times we have been told, "I cannot do" and they walk out never to return of re-address issue. Other times they say "you need a contractor." Again NO CONTRACTOR EVER COMES. The only thing these apartments are good as is collecting your rent, and that's all they care about. We are currently seeking legal council to sue Lakeside Place for violating the Implied Warranty of Habitability Statute. All current residents, I suggest you do the same!!!
DONT MOVE HERE THE MANAGEMENT TEAM STEAL YOUr RENT. empolyee was living here FOR FREE .Coropate need to fire everyone there mean dont know anything. rude to renter the regional manger is rude dont care. no one call you back a lot of peolpe are living here.pleast dont live here BAD CHOICE WILL LET THE NEWS KNOW WHAT GOING ON HERE.
I love Lakeside Place Apts compared of any others in the surroundings areas. I don't what goes on the leasing office side, but my side of the apartments was quite. People mind their business, walk their dogs and are respectful. If you see anyone hanging out, more than likely, it’s on their patio; not in the middle of the street like a block party. In the summer is super fun and I would recommend this property to anyone. I REALLY hate that they went up on their prices, I would move back. I wish I would have renewed my lease a 3rd year. 3 years ago it was affordable and I was locked in my rate, but the new rates are depressing. Management is cool, don't like the turnover rate, but I pay my rent and mind my business so that's irrelevant who's in the office. I did see roaches time to time, but not a colony; maybe one or 2. Ask for them to exterminate, I recommend getting done every 6 months I miss my community maybe I'll come back after nursing school when I can afford it.
I have been living here a little over 6 months, and I haven't had any major issues so far and hopefully its stays that way especially on the reviews I have read. I have had service request that have not been addressed yet, so I recently went into the office on Tuesday and I seen new faces. Everyone seems nice and have not had any unprofessional service yet. I spoke with the "New Manager" yet once again. LOL. But she seems like she is going to take control and get things done and running right. Hopefully the new manger stays and gets this property up and running the way it should. Lets see what happens! I love the location and I am looking forward to renewing. Every apartment complex has their ups and downs. BTW Thursday Morning all my service request were addressed!!!!!
