Aberdeen >Housing Rental > Cranberry Run
I lived there for five years – I lived at cranberry for five years. My stay was pretty pleasant maintenance came when I needed them, office staff was very nice, parking was ok and most of my neighbors were pretty cool.
Stay Away! – ATTENTION: Cranberry Run
I am writing this letter prior to posting on public reviewing boards in hope that the issues at hand may be resolved discretely and mainly for your awareness.
I have lived at Cranberry Run for 1 year now, and have been a loyal and quiet tenant. Last year, over half the summer I did not have appropriate cooling access.
Nevertheless I referred 4 other tenants from my company at General Dynamics and asked for no referral. I have watched the property decline rapidly since the rent reduction, yet still have not complained. There have been windows busted out of vehicles, the halls have smelled of illegal substance, loud music and tenants, garbage consistently in the halls and around the dumpster, Even recently April 22, 2009 there were what appeared to be human feces in between the washer and dryer. I am not sure if it was from a human but regardless the smell was horrid. I have kept quiet and to myself because I am a mature adult that has no desire to control the enviroment around me. I will simply move to a better area that suits me.
I am complaining as of now for the following reasons:
-I have requested numerous times to be present when maintenance is conducted (other than emergency) Not at first but after a photograph was discovered missing I wanted to take safety measures and not make accusations. Instead of a courtesy call they simply stop applying the signs, and entered as they please.
-I have been extremely disappointed that as one of the highest paying tenants, I am low on the list as a customer (I experienced that yesterday).
-I pay 889.00 as the newer tenants attain a much less costly rate. I have had no issue because I am a law abiding citizen whom appreciates a contract.
On April 5, 2009 I entered the office and inquired if it would be acceptable to pay an additional month. I was then told my rent would not change. April 27,2009 as I asked for a repair, I felt it appropriate to remind the manager in charge.
I was then given 2 different prices, the final one equaling around 1,100.00
I have taken numerous photo's on exactly what has made me so devasted with the property. I have found although verbage is powerful, a picture is worth a thousand words. Before you view them I must warn you that EVERYTIME the maintenance personnel is well aware of the insects, bark and debris collecting in the pipes damaging the closet. Not to mention for 4 days it was over 100 degrees, the only reason I attain that knowledge is with an electric meter because the thermostat doesn't even run that high.
The most preferred method apparently is duct tape. I have been asked a few times exactly why I am moving, I will not try and spare feelings any longer, ask yourself... would you pay 1,100 for this? I feel as if it is because I am a young single professional here at Atc. I have been taken advantage of by your management and plan forward to do all I can to prevent others from being scammed.
I am infuriated, but mostly disappointed a establishment would rather scam a person whom attains morals and get every cent they can.
I will further more recommend against your property because of the above stated reasons. And I am undecided as of right now what further action I will take. I have more pictures available upon request, feel free to contact me.
P.S. I still have no A.C and I was told there is nothing that could be done unless I was a medical emergency
