I agree with the other comments. You will see on a daily basis people looking in your dumpster daily both in the morning and in the evening. Also, the staff rotates in and out so often that when you tell the staff about an issue you have to retell it to the new person. In the course of me staying there was a lot of police activity. Your parking garage is consistently blocked due to guest of residence blocking you in or guest or residents parking in the fire lane. The billing is never right. They will send you a bill when you owe them but when they owe you for overcharging you they don't say anything they continue to charge you as if a credit is not due to you. Do not live here you will be sorry.
This is one horrible place, felt very unsafe living there. Dumpster divers every morning jumping into container by our bedroom window. The carpet downstairs was filthy when we moved in - had several spots, when we moved out the spots where still there and all of a sudden - they now became our spots. They took money from our deposit. No find another place to live - you will not be sure of the outcome when you move. + crappy surroundings.
Super expensive and office staff is horrible. My apartment was flooded due to the apartment next door that was EMPTY they did nothing when I asked about my furniture that got wet. Aside from that I was harassed by neighbors who lived far from my townhouse and it got so bad I had to go to the police which Led me to tell the staff in the office and they did nothing. And lastly I had put a work order for a new stove because the buttons broke on mine and they took over 5 months to bring one, which was unfortunate for me because I didn't have an oven for the holidays.
They kicked me out and said i was kicking down signs and if any thing i barly touched any thing . I deserve to be let back in.
The short answer is DO NOT rent here. If you would like specific reasons, continue reading. First let's discuss rent. It is outrageously high. Period. Every year, resident satisfaction surveys are sent out. Strangely enough we never hear the results of them, but mysteriously based on "how wonderful" this place is, our rent goes up. There is no benefit to living here. No park, no pool, no community center. Very few grassy areas decent enough for your kids to play on, which based on who your neighbors are, may or may not be an issue. There are no speed bumps or anything of the sort to prevent cars from flying down the road like it's the straightaway of the local NASCAR track. It has only been the grace of God that in my time living here, I've never heard of any kids getting hit. Second, let's discuss the office staff. The office at Linden Court is a revolving door of incompetence. For a business as widely known and supposedly respected as Lewis Homes, you'd think they could get intelligent or at least semi intelligent people to work in the front office. Not so. If you get someone on the phone, which is doubtful at best, you will have to repeat yourself 3 times, and then be told someone will have to call you back. It never happens. The more likely scenario is you call the office during normal business hours, no one answers, you leave a detailed, concise and clear message including your name, address and phone number. Then you call back 3 days later because you never heard back and whatever your original issue was is still an issue. The absolutely only redeeming quality of this place, and unfortunately it still isn't enough for me to encourage you to sign your entire monthly earnings to an already overly inflated company, is the maintenance guys. They are friendly, helpful and unlike any one else that works here, know what they are doing. The downside to this is that you have to go through the incompetent office staff to get a work order to these guys. But when they finally get the order, they are on top of it. If they could do the maintenance and run the front office, this place might have something going. But it's not to be so... So before you rent here, drive through. talk to someone that lives here. Better yet, find a moving truck packing up someone's house and ask why they are leaving. But bring a comfortable chair and cup of coffee, because it may take a while for them to finish detailing each and every reason they are moving.
