I've lived here 2 years and lets start with the positive: 1. Maintenance is on top- actually came on Christmas Eve 2. Landscape is great- bad if you work midnights though 3. Great location- next to malls, highway, and many businesses Now for the bad: 1. Before I moved in they told me dogs weren't allowed in my building and yet almost everyone has a dog in theirs 2. Basement aka rape basement with only one washer and dryer. Forget doing laundry on Sunday. Storage is awful- it's "protected" by a very cheap wire fence which anyone can pull down and get to your belongings 3. They turned off the heat this year when it was 30 degrees and they do not care one bit- they told me once its off its off and to put on a sweatshirt. They don't turn it back on until the end of October and I was also freezing then too because duh its Michigan. 4. Pay your rent on time! They will not give you any leeway on this whatsoever. I have perfect credit and one time around 4th of July the banks were closed and I couldn't get it in time but they didn't care so I got late fee. I was in the office and a guy was $5 short of his rent and they said they do not accept partial payment so they didn't accept that either. 5. WAY OVERPRICED! Before I moved in the rent was $675 and now I pay $735 with absolutely no ammentities or anything. They said it was due to the market. DO NOT LIVE HERE! FIND SOMEWHERE ELSE. They do not care about their tenants at all.
Big mistake moving here. I like knowing im close to royal oak area. So I like the location. but this apartment is low and discusting. the stairways stink, bathroom smells like mildew even when we clean it. sometimes i dont want to breath. this place needs more windows. very dark in the apartment on a cloudy day. the nieghbors are not very social and most dont speak english. some friendly advice. If you're american and likes cleaniness, lexington would not be the place for you
Don't let these sunny pics fool you, its ghetto and gloomy. They do so much to reel you in but once your in the charade disappears. The apartments appear OK at first glance but make sure you take a closer look. The kitchen appliances are old and decrepit, the heat is crappy and is either too hot or too cold. Same with the water temps, I literally spend 10 minutes each morning trying to get a comfortable water temp as one fraction of a degree turn on the hot knob results in a temperature delta from glacial stream to active volcano. I also have a leak in the shower that has started damaging the drywall in the bathroom. In addition to the crappy apartment, you also have a maintenance staff that is missing a chromosome or two. They "painted" our hallways, but they painted all the doors with the doors closed. Who would have guessed t hat the paint would peel off when you open the doors????? Not these rocket scientists. Also one of the entry doors to my building has a knob that falls off every time you open it. Obvious problem, easy fix, yet three months and no resolution. You are better off spending your rent money on a newer complex that is better maintained and better staffed. The real ironic part is they emailed me asking for a review, like this place was decent or something! Oh well, they got what they asked for!
I will not be recommending ANYONE to be living in these apartments. They have ant/ Rat issues and they will not take care of it even if you make a call for someone to come out. What ever happens maintenance wise you have to handle it your self, like you purchased your own home even though you pay rent and maintenance is in the rent. They are a filthy company and they do not take care of their residents. They have the worse ant / insect issues and Rats. The residents there miss the dumpster and there is trash everywhere and the hallways always smell like sewerage from the basement. They also have an issue with mold. This is the worse place i have ever lived. I can't wait to move out.
I am counting down the days until my lease is up. Groundskeepers are rude, housekeepers are loud, and they want to raise the rent. when they do inspections and stuff they give u like a week long time span and tell u to lock up your pets. Then they come the day after.
