The apartments are very nice and in a wonderful location. The property manager seems very nice and accommodating ........ HOWEVER, I strongly urge you to actually read and review their lease prior to signing. The ones that jumped out to me and my friend who is a commercial property manager are Section 17 - regarding ending the lease, it contradicts their own addendum. Section 24(e) states if for any reason they get sued by you or anyone there to see you and gets injured even due to Grandview Pointes negligence, you are responsible for all GP's attorney fees for the attorney of THEIR choice. What a bill that would be if they flew one in from LA. Section 34e2 - states that NO car is allowed on property over 8 model years old. WOW !! My classic car could be worth more than your new cheap car and I could get denied to bring it on the premises Section 47 - states that upon signing the lease, you waive certain Pennsylvania State laws where they are protecting your rights and they outright say, " they will not do what PA Law requires". and lastly my favorite : ) It is the smoke alarm addendum at the end of the lease: It states "that the TENANT assumes full and complete responsibility for all risk and hazards attributable to, connected with or in any way related to the operation, malfunction or failure of the smoke detector(s). This responsibility will exist even if such malfunction or failure is attributable to, connected with, or in any way related to the use, operation, manufacture, distribution, repair, servicing or installation of the smoke detector(s). My husband and I had a problem with that since the last time we manufactured, distributed or repaired a fire alarm was NEVER. But they said that we would be responsible for them. : ( We could not sign the lease and move there with so many ridiculous clauses ! BTW.. The limited parking was an issue also !
nice view- if you can afford it – lived here for three years. FIRST WARNING: Look out for the managment! They will be super sweet until you sign the lease- than look out! better hope nothing goes wrong while your there. The maintnance man is one of the rudist people I have ever had to deal with. The place is managed by McKinney properties- google them and find what other people have to say about them...
One thing I do give them credit for is this- The building is super super CLEAN! The common areas are very nice.
THE SECOND WARNING: Parking is very very limited! Unless the lady running the place likes you (and she has to realy like you) You will be limited to ONE parking spot (which you have to pay for and is NOT included with the rent!) The restuarant on top of the building has many employees that take any available on-street parking. So chances are that you will be stuck parking several blocks away and walking home. Oh and did I mention that there is a good chance that your car will be broken into and will also be a victim of a hit-and-run! (TWICE while I lived there!)
So I guess that if you can aford to live in this place, the views are great. Hire your own maintnance person, and hire a personal driver so you dont have to worry about parking!
