This is the most horrible place. I unfortunately have leased the apartment online and the first day I arrived there were roaches. I told the leasing office about the roaches and they sent the exterminator who never was successful in getting rid of the roaches. I had to get rid of all my furniture when I moved out because the roaches have infested everything.
The property manager is not a nice person at all.
When it comes to safety, there was always police cars investigation the murders that were happening there.
You can easily find firearm bullets in the area all the time while walking. Also snakes in the grass areas.
The buildings are very old and there is plumping problems all the time. Also the kitchen appliances are very old and consume lots of electricity, so your electricity bill will be always over $70.
I have reported maintenance problems many times even to the property manager and I never got a response back.
Some of the staff are very nice but most of them are not.
So I would certainly NOT recommend this to anybody. Even though it is cheaper but the bills you pay because of their poor construction are higher so another more expensive apartment complex will be cheaper if you add the bills of power and water.
They have no washers or dryers. Their laundry matt is horrible and it charged me more than once because of the poor design.
They take very high deposit money for pets compared to other newer complexes and the money is not refundable. Also you have to pay monthly rent for the pets.
I have also noticed that they come to your apartment when you are absent without asking for your permission which is not accepted and not mentioned in the lease.
When I moved out they sent me huge bill of damages that were already there when I moved. And I had no option except paying.
It was seriously a nightmare and I am really HAPPY I got out.
