BEWARE--Ithaca's slimiest, sleaziest rental company. They will try to scam you out of your deposit and ignore your concerns. The only reason they can survive is because there is a constant need for housing in Ithaca and they prey upon unsuspecting tenants. We rented an apartment in one of their downtown Ithaca properties and although it was in poor move-in condition we were excited to be in Ithaca and just accepted that it was an old apartment. We had asked for some things to be done and they eventually sent their incompetent maintenance person around who butchered the tasks at hand. This is one scary dude and you then quickly realize they are not interested in quality or service. We also started to notice that the other tenants in the building seemed rather unhappy and miserable. And, there was a thief living in the building who broke into one of the apartments! We quickly decided to move at the end of our lease. When we vacated our apartment, we cleaned it from top to bottom, touched up the paint and made sure everything was perfect, even better than when we moved in. We were assured we would get our deposit back but apparently, they found a way to deduct cleaning and painting fees for hundreds of dollars. When asked, they humiliated my wife, shoving pictures in her face saying that they found a hair(!), and took apart the stove and found some grease. It would have been nice to know that tenants are supposed to take apart the appliances to receive their deposit! It was unbelievable and she left in tears. If you are even thinking of renting an apartment from these greedy, soulless creatures, I suggest doing everything possible to AVOID THEM. They are an absolute disgrace to the Ithaca community. They should be reported to the Better Business Bureau.
