I honestly wish i could give a "0" star rating. This was the worst place i have ever lived, and i grew up in Lawrence Ma. So that says a lot!!! This place is straight bogus, the way the place is so poorly constructed,the Maintenance men have no idea what they're doing and are total Perverts. (They have made comments toward my wifes Breasts and have hit on her several times when walking from car to apartment making her very uncomfortable. I made a complaint to the office and was given attitude from 3 different ladies (they did nothing to fix the situation) All they said was "All of our Maintenance men have gone through a pretty extensive background check". During my 1 Year lease, the ceiling in our Master Bedroom leaked from our upstairs neighbors shower ( Yes, every time they showered water would leak into our bedroom.) This Happened the ENTIRE time we lived there! Maintenance NEVER fixed the problem, but were there to fix it several times! Probably just to snoop around! This ruined our Brand new King size mattress and they said if we do not have renters insurance there is nothing that can be done. There is a huge issue with bugs in the summer time! People with pets do not clean up after their dogs so there is POOP EVERYWHERE! They also gave me an extremely hard time about my Pitbull Terrier and said "Anyone here with a Pitbull is a registered service or therapy dog" Yeah i'm sure all 20 Pitbulls ive seen there were registered service dogs!!! The front door that goes into the hall way leading to everyones personal entrance was broken for over 6 months before they decided to fix it (back door is still broken to this day) so security in this place is very minimal! Our mail man would not leave packages unless we were home to sign for them and show ID because people would steal packages that did not belong to them! First month of living there the bi-fold closet door fell off its hinges and they NEVER fixed it even though i brought it to their attention right away! The shower backed up no matter how much draino we used in our Bottom floor apt. People party every night in the summer time blasting music and yelling outside. The heat in the winter time is horrible, it is either too cold or too hot there is no happy medium. The windows are very old and all the cold air comes right through! You are not allowed to use any colored curtains (Only white) (We got a threat of Eviction if we did not change our curtains to white!!!) At the end of your lease you better make your place clean enough to eat off of any surface! They will charge you "Fees" for any work that they need to do in there when you leave! (Stove is not clean? $75.00 BAM!) Now imagine the rest! Also just shortly after moving in, there was a "Crime Scene Investigator" truck parked next door for an entire day cleaning up a dead body. They would not tell us how this Young man died. They did not even tell us that a man died we had to hear it through the grapevine! I seriously could go on and on but i think i made my point here. This is the worst place to live.
This is absolutely the WORST place I have EVER lived. Once you sign the least the management could care less about you. Take DAYS for maintenance to come fix something and when they do, they can just walk right in with no notice at all. (And can walk in with NO notice for ANY reason at all.) The utility company they use is a joke. Just a call center out of New York. Charge you everything if you want to pay the bill online instead of mailing a check or cash in (don't take payments over the phone either) and the management team neglects to tell you that when you move in. ALSO they don't tell you how the breakdown of the utilities are. The way they "split up" the charges is/should be illegal. So you could try to conserve water/gas all you want, if someone else in your building is using a lot you're stuck paying for it. The trash pickup is ridiculous (which is part of that insane utility bill.) The trash is PILED up and outside all the bins constantly. One month after living there we decided we HATED it and wanted to leave but they lock you in the lease and they told us that we would lose our security deposit (which I expected) and that we could be financially responsible for charges that incur while the apartment sits vacant for the length of our lease, WHAT?! We finally were able to get out of there and they charged us "damages" for the stupidest things. I spent THREE DAYS cleaning that apartment spotless and they still charged us almost $200 in "damages" which included Steam Cleaning the kitchen floor. That isn't standard procedure for when a new tenant moves in?! Lastly, the office was rude as HELL! I work in Customer Service and know how to keep my calm and be nice in all situations but they even had ME storming out and slamming the door in their faces. UGH! Horrible DO NOT MOVE IN HERE!!!
This is the worst place I have ever lived in. Firstly, the electric, heat, and water are shared throughout the community and you have to pay for them. Maintenance loves to use whatever they want and will not turn anything off. Secondly, the snow removal process is mediocre at best so there is barely any place to park and roofs are about to topple once the snow is melting. Thirdly, people would enter your place without giving an exact notice of when (only about 2 weeks ahead) they come in because they just want to surprise you. Lastly, this place falls apart easily: paint is cracking on walls, roofs are coming down slowly, and nothing is usable in the kitchen (sinks and dishwasher back up). Please avoid this place at all cost or you will regret it. I had to choose it because there was no other place available at the time.
This place is a DUMP! The management company could care less about you once you move in! The 3rd party company that they use for gas/water/sewer (among other fees) is a joke! The way they "split" the charges is illegal. The top 2 apartments pay 50% of the TOTAL BILL and the 4 other units pay the other 50%. So you could try to conserve water/gas all you want, if someone else is using a lot you're stuck paying for it. This is a piece of information that they neglect to tell you. The office staff is some of the rudest people around! They treat you like crap. The parking is a total joke! Some apartments have 3-4 cars which means several other apartments only get the 1 spot provided out front. They now rent to anyone/everyone including a large amount of drug dealers. We've seen several drug deals go down at the playground. It seems like the police are here every single day. I could go on and on about what a terrible place this place is but I'd run out of room. We can not wait to get out of here.. This place is not worth the $1300+ rent.
This place is a crap hole!!!! Once you are under contract the staff that runs the place could careless about you. Everything about that place is horrible, trust me when I say it if you live here with in one month you will want to move but they wont let you! They will also just have there employees enter your apartment when you are not there without calling (there would be a note in the hall in the corner warning you but most of the time that note would be ripped down) My wife was horrified when two men entered the apt when I was at work and she did not know they were coming.
