Lived at 1 of their senior properties in WA State. Management's philosophy is that nothing is their problem and to call the police. I was afraid to move out as had heard horror stories about how they make up things to charge you for. They seem to want to charge residents so it doesn't come out of their pocket. I sent them a letter disputing the bill, and they immediately turned me to collections.
Many problems at the Muirwood location (Martinez, CA):
First and foremost; there is a complete lack of handicapped parking, except for one spot right outside the office. This entire apartment complex is in complete non-compliance with the Federal ADA, AND like legislation in California. I'd like to avoid litigation if residents are polled to see what ADA compliant changes MUST be made. If the situation is not rectified by June 28, 2013, I will be forced to (1) contact the U.S. Attorney's Office in Oakland/San Francisco and the State of California Attorney General, and (2) engage a ADA lawyer from Oakland who specializes in this type of litigation and ask for damages---actual AND punative.
Secondly; there seems to be the situation that there are several vehicles which may abandoned----they have not been moved in months, and may not be licensed/or have up-to-date state stickers. Also, several vehicles with out-of-state plates that have been here longer than the California auto registration residency laws require. There is also a camper-truck parked here that I can't remember seeing moved from the same spot in about 2 years. In addition, I know all apts. are rented per the manager (Gena), but some apartments may be inhabited by more than two drivers, and hence more than two vehicles. There should be a limit of no more than two vehicles per apartment allowed to be parked ON the property. In addition, there are some who bring their company's truck home ( one for example is the person who brings the local gas/electric utility home----it's a PG&E truck )----those have no business being here----let the company find parking for it-----the people who have a personal business should follow a 2-vehicle per apartment rule.
Thirdly; There is a woman in the 660 center Ave. building ( Bldg. D ) who constantly allows her cat to roam the grounds in violation of Contra Costa County animal-control ordinances----people at animal control tell me the cat can be caught, and when they recieve it at their location it can be disposed of. People with dogs should keep them muzzled when they are home, especially at night. Animals----some people who come visit somewhat regularly for 2-3 weeks have a LARGE dog ( looks just like a wolf) which is too large per Muirwood's rules re. dogs---I like dogs, but if there is a rule, enforce it, or ask the renter to tell his/her friends that if they stay with them, they should get a motel instead of living for free with the renters and leave there dog there when they visit.
Number four; There is at least one couple who visit their friends here, stay with them several weeks, and seldom move their car---Usually taking a prime unnumbered spot that should be for paying customers.
Lastly; The entire apartment complex is in violation of apartment grounds smoking ordinances, both City ( Martinez ) and County ( Contra Costa County). The ordinances require a clearly marked "designated smoking area" farest away from buildings ( I should say cars as no one likes to smell smoke when entering his car ), where children may be present, and conspicous areas labled as "non-smoking". If smokers can't be sensible about this, then evict them----we already had one building majorly gutted by fire last year----apparently causede by a smoker in her apartment.
I should like to hear from the corporate Headquarters on this ASAP----not jus a reply from the local sight manager. I would hope that the first one would take priority followed by the smoking situation.

turned for the worst – FPI took over management of the Bryson Apartments in 2011. We had several good managers, but heavy turnover - 5 managers in one year! - and the latest Management is hostile and abusive of renter's rights.
In February, they revoked parking rights and forced us to seek off-site parking at $80-$100/month out-of-pocket, and after complaints have been dragging-on "resolution" for months.
Now they are entering units without permission or proper notice and lying after-the-fact about having served.
They don't return calls, and the Operator at tehr Polsom, CA HQ is rude and snotty.
They seem to be begging for legal action.
FPI Management's actions are unconsiounable – FPI is the third management company to manage our apartment complex since I have been a resident. I moved in in 2007. We have also had three managers.
With every change in management, the rules of living in the complex change also. Of the three companies, FPI is the worst about introducing new rules, using them to terrorize residents, and following through with notices of eviction...even for minor actions. Rather than come to residents with minor issues, they descend like hawks and leave notices of eviction. I have told the manager that every morning when I open my kitchen window I am afraid to see that an envelope has been left stuck to my door. Living in fear is no way to live. If I have done something that offends or infringes on the many rules FPI has set for residents, I would prefer to discuss it with the manager BEFORE I receive a notice of eviction. I was told that the letters really mean nothing if I comply to whatever rule it is. But the letters DO remain in our files and there comes a time when management refers to them to supplement any current notices. This is against renter's law. Unfortunately, I have neither the money or the time to find a new place to live. So I must take what FPI dishes out with an attitude of compliance...even though inside I am totally fearful of being made to move. This is unfair. I've researched law and know that FPI is just barely inside of what laws there are. That doesn't make them a good management company...it just makes them vultures that play on the weakest links in the apartment complex.
The Christmas party was considered a success. That's one in four years of residency, and not hardly enough to make up for FPI's attitude of making money and treating residents like they are worthless.
I would never recommend living here to a friend. Come to think of it, I would never recommend living in an FPI-managed complex to anyone.
Worst Property Management Company Ever! – I have lived at Bella Vista in Richmond for several years, but now the FPI has taken over, I can't wait to leave.
My burglar alarm started to malfuction, and went off every 5 minutes during hte middle of the night. No one from maintenance would come, and I left several mesesages. It took 4 attempts to get someone to help me disable the alarm.
When I called their corporate office in Folson, the offical response was "it was low priority". Also, when I complained about the lack of upkeep on the pool, a leasing agent rolled her eyes at me.
Never, never, never rent from anyplace where FPI is the property management team.
Chadwick Apartments - Do Not Rent – Do not rent at this building. It is dirty and old. They use the cheapest materials to maintain what's broken and do not hire professionals to do the job right.
The Chadwick targets renting to unsuspecting USC students and immigrants who are taken in by the amenities and the outward appearance of the building. There are way too many people living in small units. You have six people of multiple generations stuffed into one bedroom units WITH animals on top of it. People walk their dogs without leashes and allow them to do their business on the interior hallway carpets. The only areas that receive deep cleaning are the areas next to the office.
Living at the Chadwick was more like living in a short term hotel than an apartment community. They don't even care that people don't renew their lease. The leasing people are arrogant and rude to the tenants once they have signed the lease. They are most certainly NOT professionals.
There are no security cameras. Apartments are burglarized and cars are being stolen and broken into regularly.The maintenance people think they are in charge of the building. They make up reasons to enter units unannounced for no reason without a phone call or written notice.
For the people who are still living at the Chadwick, I hope you get a new management soon. For those considering it, make the visit short and watch your belongings.
Horrible management group – If you rent from them be prepare for them to enter your unit unannounced while your still in bed not feeling good. They have black mold in units and roaches.
Yes they are worst management west of the Mississippii – How this company is allowed to treat tenants in so many unlawful ways is beyond me. The only way we can stop these BASTARDS! is a Class Action LAWSUIT!
Do not rent from FPI! bad experience here – I had a one bedroom apartment for 3 years. I was always clean, and had 3 different management companies. The last one to take cover on the last year was FPI management. I gave my 30 day notice last july to move out on August. It was a small place, and I wanted to get my deposit back, so I made sure to leave the place spotless before leaving.
I cleaned and gave my keys to the manager on the very last day. The manager did not want to look at my apartment telling me that I'd probably get all my deposit back.
30 days passed and I heard nothing from FPI management. Called the manager a few times and got no answer. The days passed and I sent a serious email asking for my deposit back since by law they only have 21 days to send you your itemized description.
The manager finally replied to an email saying that I owed them $5. Basically they took my deposit and on top of that I had to pay them $5. They'd later send me the paperwork with real exaggerated claims on what it cost to clean my place. I took them to court and WON. They had claimed that my apartment was a "horrid" clean.
However, they had no evidence but just a couple of crappy pictures of some dusty spots in the bathroom. They also tried to provide an envelope as to proof that they had mail me the paperwork on time. Their proof was an envelope without my name or address.
Anyway, my best advice to anyone out there DO NOT rent from FPI EVER. They're a shady company.
