This place is awful. A new management company took over in late 2003 and the place is going to the dogs. Don´t do it. There are plenty of other apartments that take pets, and those apartments probably don´t sue you for… Full Review ▶

Falkland Chase is a decent place to live. I say this after I moved out when my entire living room ceiling collapsed. Prior to that incident, though, I had few problems. Parking is an issue anywhere inside the beltway. There were… Full Review ▶

The Falkland Chase´s parking lot contractor towed our car today because the parking permit sticker had "expired."

We figured out what happened. The new sticker they gave us to affix to the car was actually an old one--whoops their mistake,… Full Review ▶

I chose this complex because it´s a short walk to the Metro and because of the hardwood floors (I detest wall-to-wall carpet). I signed a new lease only because the requirement to give 60 days notice made it impossible to find… Full Review ▶
