The apartment complex is in a convenient location and is around entertainment, dining, etc. it was a quick ride to and from work. The front office staff is really friendly and they know what they are doing but the maintenance staff isn't an asset for Lexington Village. They undermine Lexington's credibility. They are one of the few reasons my wife and I moved out. Now to my assessment of the actual facilities: The first couple of months were fine until my pregnant wife and I started seeing roaches. We informed management and they said they would take care of everything. A month passed and they didn't. We informed them again and they reiterated the same thing that they would take care of it. Eventually maintenance showed up and "took care of it." Not even a week later we see more roaches. That's not even the worst part: I pulled up to our building from work and seen two large rats! A couple days later, I pull into a parking spot, got out of my car and almost stepped on a decapitated rat. That's when I knew I had to move out. The neighbors are close-minded, noisy, stinky, and they clog the hallways! The basement where the laundry facilities are has rat feces Everywhere. I know the maintenance staff has to answer to many service orders daily but when there are issues that affect the overall health of the residents, priorities need to change. It was a decent living experience and could be worse...
Staff was always very nice 😀 what I hated was that most of my neighbors were very loud and would slam the door coming in and out day and night, things on my bookshelves would fly off because of how hard they would slam the door open, people constantly honking horns to let people know they were there, stand in front of my door screaming on the phone and when I would ask them to go to their apartment they acted like they didn't know one word of English. Kids never supervised, I would catch them throwing things at cars and playing in the dumpsters. And for not offering any pool, fitness center, bigger storage the rent is pretty high.
I've been here from the past 1 year and since the day I moved in I had been raising concerns of bed bugs. Every time the pest control team comes and god knows what they do as the bugs don't go. When I went to add my wife I the lease the team wants me to move to a two bedroom apartment just because I have 4 years old daughter. I have seen some of the neighbors having a family of 4 plus people staying in one bedroom apartment. Wonder why they are not asked to move to a 3 bedroom apartment (if they have one). The worst part is When I'm ready to move to the two bedroom apartment they don't want to transfer unless pest control does not give a clean chit which is ridiculous. Other apartments in the neighborhood do have have any problems with 3 people staying I one bedroom apartment wonder what is the problem here?
RATS RATS RATS. As of Christmas, I will have been a resident here for two months and I would not recommend this complex to any of my friends or family. Here are some reasons why: The only time we could view the specific apartment that we were signing for, was the day of move-in and maybe an hour before. There was no other time made available to us by the leasing office for us to look at what we were signing for before we signed our lease. Sure we looked at a model, but it wasn't what we were going to be living in, exactly. Also, we were called a WEEK before we were to move in, and were told that the apartment we were supposed to get, was completely trashed by the previous resident and we will now be living in a different apartment, which was $10 more a month, which they charged us for. It wasn't our fault that the previous resident trashed everything, but now we had to pay the price by a $10 increase in rent every month. Our windows aren't sealed properly so we have condensation on our bedroom window sill, which we had maintenance out for and it still happens.The fire alarm goes off pretty easily, which sure, is safe, but can also be a nuisance. Also, our apartment faces the South, the sun is hitting the apartment ALL DAY. If it is even 60 degrees outside, it will EASILY be 80 degrees inside the apartment, which FORCES you to run the air, and increase your DTE bill each month. There are absolutely NO amenities to living here. Not a gym, a pool, anything. Which they claim that they are building and working on, but the most I've seen done since I moved in was a few trees chopped down in the "soon to be" pool/clubhouse area. Which, with this BEAUTIFUL and WARM Michigan winter we are having, the work should be coming along extremely fast. If they cared enough to get their acts together so their residents could enjoy it and it wasn't just a sign outside of the leasing office to get people in the door. Our neighbors below us smoke weed and the smells gets in to our apartment every single time. Other neighbors have their door open all day which makes it uncomfortable to go up and down the stairs, because they live directly at the bottom on them. I've had to come out of my apartment and down the stairs to tell their children to stop running around in the hallways because it's a disturbance. My biggest pet peeve? THE LEASING OFFICE IS UNRESPONSIVE TO EMAILS. I have lived here for two months with my boyfriend and small dog. Our neighbors throw food out in to the yard, which has ATTRACTED RATS TO COME LIVE UNDER THE BACK PORCH. Our building is dog-friendly, so why should the animal owners have to worry about their dog catching a disease from rats that are literally living right under them? We got a letter a few weeks ago reminding everyone to pick up their dog's poop in the yard, but nothing can be done about rats??? absolutely ridiculous. I have made multiple complaints to the leasing office, including the assistant manager, and their solutions have been "We'll send a letter to the neighbors letting them know they're in violation." Maybe they did, maybe they didn't because THERES STILL FOOD BEING THROWN OUT. Also, that they would send out PEST CONTROL and fix the problem. This was in NOVEMBER, and it is now the end of December. The holes under the back porch, at which the RATS dug away at the concrete, have been filled with DIRT and nothing else. The rats come out at night, eat the food, and scurry off. I have seen it for myself and my boyfriend saw a dead rat that had been run over in the parking area, just a few days ago. I emailed the leasing office about this issue back in November and they said they would "follow up" with me. The NEVER contacted me, so I sent an angry email again last week, and STILL NO CONTACT OR SOLUTION. Now I'm sure the leasing office will come on here and tell me to come in and they will fix everything to cover themselves from looking unprofessional, but it shouldn't take a review on the internet and public embarrassment of the complex to get some action. I'm sure we will end our lease before it is up.
they probably need to remodel the whole building , my aunt use to live there. and i used to go there and see how the bathroom were cracked, shower, and the kitchen. idk, i wont suggest it.
