one word... SLUMLORD!! 1st of all, my apartment became infested with bed bugs. In fact, the whole building had been infested for months. And no, I'm not just making up things. I have paperwork and exterminator records to back up my statements. After telling the company about the infestation, they didn't believe me and I had to pay for my own exterminator.
DON'T EVER USE THIS COMPANY. They go by numerous names such as: 255-257 E. 61st St LLC, Sol Goldman Investments, Lighthouse Properties. There are so many better landlords in NYC, why bother with these dirty, low, skeevy, money-hungry, pieces of crap. I'm surprised they are still in business. Karma is a b*tch, and this company will one day get what it deserves!
WORST COMPANY EVER -HORRIBLE STAFF – I agree with everyone who has written a response-.
I also never received my rent renewal and had to call them a month before the lease was up. After another two weeks i called again to see where the lease was and they told me over he phone my rent was going up $200...like it was nothing and normal.
Solil management is HORRIBLE. I live there and the following has happens:
--Lost my check and sent three notices to my apartment stating i owed them money although when i found out they lost it my bf hand delivered it to them. One of the letters was smooshed under my door with no envelope, embarrassing me in front of my neighbors for no reason
-Inside is disgusting with cock roaches, garbage that sits for days and a super that cleans the building (if he ever does clean it) with no shirt on
-Serious rat issue outside of building although it is located on the UES between park and lex
-tried to raise my rent $200 even though they never did any work--tried to raise my neighbors $400 one year!
-Leak From my upstairs neighbor's apt and my ceiling was never fixed along with many many other issue.
-Brown water all the time
-NASTY , Nasty people who work for them--BEYOND UNPROFESSIONAL
-I have lived in NYC for 6 years and have never experience such filth and disrespect in my life. NEVER EVER LEASE FROM THEM.
Horrible Company – I wish no starts were possible. These people are completely unprofessional. I'm very by the book and tried to have everything in order when I moved out. No one responds to emails, they just ignore you.
My lease ended on October 31st. I didn't receive lease paper work to renew until October 15th. At that point I'd already started looking for a new place, because I didn't know if they'd raise my rent. (Apartment is not rent stabilized, they could raise it to ANYTHING.)
After receiving paper work I emailed them to let them know I wasn't going to renew and offered a full month's notice if they would like, at my current rent. (Which was the same amount as the new lease was for, they in fact did not raise the rent.) After MANY attempts to get ahold of someone, talked to a woman who said that would be fine, but be sure to send a formal letter that I was moving out, email wasn't good enough. So I included a formal letter with the last month's rent check. What a disaster!! I haven't heard from anyone and they are still sending rent slips to that apartment in my name!!! How can they not know I'm gone? Between a phone call, email and a formal letter???? They cashed the rent check, so I know they got the letter.
Unbelievable!!! Maybe they will pull it together and I'll receive my deposit in the next few months. Otherwise I'm going to small claims court.
Solil Management/Lighthouse Properties – We live in a building at 166 West 72nd St in NYC in a 1 bedroom paying $2800/month. This is on the high end of 1 bedroom prices in this area. There is 1 passenger elevator in this 12 story building that has been broken for 5 months. The landlord acts as though they are annoyed when asked about the repair. There has been no visible attempt at repairing it nor will they respond when asked when it will be repaired. The office staff is extremely rude and incompetent.
Don't rent an apt from this company!
most NYC Housing dpt violations of any mgmt co – Review their violations which are public online: on
Diego Vincenty at Solil is supposed to handle things like ceilings falling in but he will not call you back. The tenants have been in the building forever so most are rent stabilized which is the only reason they stay.
There was racoon in the laundry room twice and no one did anything about it. Our neighbor upstairs flooded our apartment as the plubming is so bad and again, no call back.
Also no one I've spoken to has ever received their security deposit back.
There are no screens on the windows so spring - fall there are all kinds of bugs, and my 3 neighbors have all had mice infestation problems. do NOT live in a Solil or Sol Goldman building.
The Worst Experience Ever – This is the worst leasing company in Manhattan. I have lived in NYC for 15 yrs and dealt with numerous agencies, this Solil by far is the worst. I completely agree with the other 2 reviews- they treat ppl like sh**. I tried to sublease my apt, as I had to leave thecountry for 6 mths- I would call them on average 30 times a day, would be put on hold 10 min each, and then if I was lucky enough to talk to someone, they would be extremely rude and hang up on me. I was doing them a favor by renting their apt! I dont recommend them to anyone. The worst experience of my life.
Out to Ruin Your Day or Just Incompetant? – These people are the worst to work with. They lose everything you send them, take forever to do anything, refuse to respond to voicemails, emails, faxes or even fedex's. And when you eventually do get them on the phone, they are the rudest people you could imagine. AND ALL I WANT TO DO IS RENT AN APARTMENT FROM THEM!!!! They are lucky that they own half the real estate in the city. Clearly they know that they have the power to treat people like garbage. I'm only renting from them because I love the apartment, but I'd never choose to work with them.
Terrible Company – I applied for an apartment through Solil Management and it was the worst experience I have ever had. The receptionist could not have been ruder, no manners, treated me like an idiot and was constantly answering phone calls in the middle of our conversation. The process took forever and they didnt even call to follow up. They also had large broker fees, 50 dollar fees for every applicant and guarantor and when I would call to see if my application was approved or not I was put on hold for over 10 minutes each time. I would NOT recommend this company to anyone. It is a headache and approval takes up to 6 weeks. NEVER AGAIN!
