Think twice about moving here. I've lived here for four years now, hoping that it will get better but never does. The amenities don't work, hottub is only open a few times a year, the gym equipment is trashed with broken cables on the weights, treadmill doesn't operate and the pools don't open in a timely manner. Since Somerset is selling this aspect of the amenities the management team don't offer discounts when equipment don't function or when the pools and hottub aren't open. Besides the shootings, stabbings and car thefts that happen at this complex on a frequent bases, there are a lot better choices in the kent area to live at.
Any low rent apartments will suck. It's just a simple fact of life. The truth is, as bad as it was, this place (for the price was way better than any other apartments we looked at. Only real problem I had was when a manager named Chrissy, tried to extort me for $25 for a key card deposit that I already paid. I shut her down in 10 seconds with bank records. Then they fired her when they learned what she had been doing. If you can afford to live someplace better, then stop whining and do it. But if you can't afford to pay more rent then this is your best option..
IF YOU ARE THINKING OF RENTING FROM THIS APT COMPLEX BE SURE YOU KNOW ALL THE CHARGES FOR MOVE OUT. THEY TURNED ME OVER TO COLLECTIONS WITHOUT A STATEMENT OR A PHONE CALL. THE SECOND NIGHT I WAS THERE A WOMAN WAS MURDERED. I LIVED THERE 1 YEAR AND COULDNT WAIT TO GET OUT OF THERE. THERE IS DOG SHIT EVERY WHERE. MY APT SMELLED LIKE MOLD AND MY BEDROOM CARPET WAS WET ALL THE TIME.
You don't want to move here Police here all the time loud music, apts are small and in the winter mold because know ventilation in the apts and parking is bad because parking spots are not number other people park in front of your building there are not enough spots people have two cars.
"Somerset Apartments, where nothing is management's responsibility." There are several reasons why I suggest looking elsewhere for an apartment. On top of it taking 3 weeks to fix a faulty toilet, and getting a notice on my car to be towed for no reason what so ever, on two occasions I was sent to collections by Somerset due to a lack of competence. The first time, I received a notice on my door saying that rent was not paid and I had to pay in 3 days or I would be evicted. The problem was that they incorrectly deposited my check for $1,000 less than what it was written for. I went to the office and had them pull out the copy of my check. With check in hand, they saw that I indeed paid rent in full. The woman behind the desk said she'd fix the problem. 5 days later there was an eviction notice on my door, stating that they will be sending me to collections to pay for rent (which I paid in full on time) and $100 in legal fees. I contacted them again and all they could tell me is, "I don't know what happened". They sent me to collections again upon move out! 4 days after moving out a letter sent to me from collections stated money was still owed for move out fees. The claim they sent to collections was made 10 days before the money was actually due! Since I had paid all my move out fees I called the manager to ask them why I was sent to collections. I asked if I still owed money and they said no. She said, "I don't know why you were sent to collections." I asked her why I should pay collections if I didn't owe Somerset money. The manager's response, "that's between you and the collections agency." I asked, who was responsible for sending the collections agency my information if I didn't owe them money, The manager's response, "our system automatically send everyone to collections." Only after demanding to speak with her superior did she offer to actually look into the problem. An hour later I got a call back from her saying that, "I don't know what happened." Their incompetence was borderline harassment. Nothing feels worse than being accused you owe a lot of money when you don't. Especially if they do it more than once.
