I echo the sentiments of the other reviews as of late. Fairfield Properties has no soul. Older apartments with minimal, MINIMAL upkeep. I had to pay $140 out of pocket for a locksmith to fix the lock on my front door which had been installed UPSIDE DOWN! No doggie bags for almost TWO MONTHS yet that didn't stop them from reminders to "clean-up after your pet." I was threatened to be fined for NOT having renter's insurance, despite the fact that I did - and provided it upon move-in. Threats to residents to be fined if they didn't accommodate electricians to check outlets...mind you, the notices came with little time for alternate arrangements. Again, threats of fines, coupled with little upkeep and minimal customer service. Since when is it acceptable for a property management company to not shovel walks when it snows? Isn't this supposed to be a "luxury community"? The two maintenance men are nice, but over worked...the community is far too large for two maintenance people. When I lived at a community in N.E. Ohio there was snow removal, trash picked-up off the grounds every morning, etc., etc. Dog bags ALWAYS at the dog stations. I mean, really Fairfield? You have no soul. You care little about the residents and only about "nickel and diming" us to death with your multiple fees and threats of fines. Do yourselves a favor, do NOT make the mistake I did. There are many newer, nicer communities with PROFESSIONAL management companies in the Dublin area at the same price point. Don't say you were not warned. Be smart.
We just moved in we saw few of der apartments wich were descent . But the one we registerd was not available when we registered and they did not allow us to see the apartment before we move in .But when we got the keys tha Apartment was horroble . It was not cleaned to livable condition. The cabinets were gross like sombdy puked inside. Vynyl flooring in kitchen and bathroom was teared and came off. One of the closet door just broke when I tried to open it. Kitchen Cabinet shelf has very poor pigs they keep breaking and very delicate. Refrigerator was rusted. Entrace staircase and balcony is too dirty never cleaned. Main door was not painted. Kithen counter top had lots of scrathes and stains. After lots of complains they just painted the cabinets only single coat and rusted refrigerator and resurfaced Kitchen. Kitchen counter in very rough surface . Dosent look good and very delicate to use. They dobt pick up the calls and U need to visit their office lots of time.
DO NOT RENT HERE!! If I could give 0 stars I would. My husband, daughter, and I planned to move from NYC to Dublin Ohio in the summer of 2015. The apartment that we originally signed our lease on to rent was switched on us very last minute and we were given an apartment which has not been updated or cleaned in nearly 7 years. The maintenance person on staff said he has been working for the company for over 5 years and had not once been inside of this unit (this should tell you a few things about their protocol on maintenance appliances, heating / cooling systems, and general maintenance on their properties). Upon arrival our apartment was filthy. There was mold, dirt, trash, and standing water inside of the apartment. I have several pictures of this as well to document our case. If it were worth my time I would sue them for allowing someone to move into these kind of conditions. I asked before we left our home in NYC if someone would be cleaning the apartment before we arrived, because if not I would like to arrange that (on my own dime) because I have a young daughter who shouldn't be around dust. They assured me that the apartment would be professionally cleaned and that did NOT happen. It would have taken weeks for someone to properly clean this massive dump. When we arrived we had no choice but to move our things inside until we could figure out something else. The management at Perimeter Lakes was beyond horrible. They had no other units for us to move into and honestly I think they were hoping that we would just leave so that they could properly renovate the apartment and lease it to someone else at a premium (this is exactly what they did... the apartment was completely gutted). In addition... our things were in this space for 5 days in which time the basement flooded and ruined a lot of our boxes which were full of clothing, electronics, and decor. We had to pay for a new moving truck, the cost of a hotel for several nights, increased rent at a location which was way less convenient to our daughters school, and countless hours of our time off work. Please do not rent from these people. To in good faith allow humans or animals to move into these kinds of living conditions is beyond me.
If you are searching for an apartment in the northwest Columbus or the Dublin area, please heed this warning: DO NOT rent from Perimeter Lakes of Dublin!! My friend has had the most nightmarish experience with this place. The apartment was filthy and disgusting, even after the manager said the cleaning crew had been through to clean TWICE. Although my friend had rented the apartment, it was never fit for him to move in. While waiting for the apartment to be cleaned within livable standards, there was a fire in the apartment below. Unfortunately, my friend had moved a few things in to the apartment by this point, but was still not able to move in due to it not being clean. The carpet and the apartment didn't appear to have any damage, but the door had been kicked in by the firefighters, and the apartment and the carpet smelled of smoke. In addition, all my friend's soft goods had to be sent to the cleaners in order to get rid of the smoke smell. Meanwhile, the apartment manager has offered no compensation for any of the damage, and even intimated that my friend was not being truthful about the extent of the fire damage to his personal belongings. The only offer of help the manager provided was "Call the Red Cross." Furthermore, my friend attempted to contact the corporation in Cleveland who owns this apartment complex, Associated Estates. Their suggestion was to contact the apartment manager, who clearly supports the corporation's mission of "exceeding your expectations." In the meantime, my friend has decided not to move in to this hellhole. He has been moving his belongings back out of the apartment. He never spent one single night in the place because it was never clean, before or after the fire. If you drive by today, you will still see evidence of the fire...insulation and a broken screen on the ground in front of the apartment building. The apartment manager finally agreed to give my friend a refund of some amount, and the agreement was that a check would be at the rental office today. Guess what? Not only is the check not there, but the on-duty is saying that no check will be issued until "maybe Wednesday, or possibly Thursday, or Friday." To top it all off, when my friend went to gather his final few remaining personal belongings at the apartment today, a whole bag of tools was gone. He asked the on-duty manager if he could see a log of workers who had entered the apartment over the past few days, and she told him that the rental office does not keep such a log, or at least there is not a current log. Unfortunately, it looks like my friend will have to a police report this afternoon. All in all, this place is ridiculous. NO ONE should have to go through something like this, so PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE DO NOT RENT FROM THIS PLACE, AND WARN YOUR FRIENDS AS WELL.
