Pacific Electric Lofts
Resident · 2018
Do NOT move here! I am resident of Pacific Electric Lofts. I moved in around June 15 and have noticed a huge roach infestation. Every day I see up to 10 roaches. I at least one or two in the bathroom every day along with a couple in the kitchen since I've been here. On numerous occasions there have been 3 or 4 in the sink. Yesterday, I opened the dishwasher to find 3 running around. I've found one in my fridge. They have now invaded my brand new couch, and have crawled on my guests. I pay about $2000 per month and I'm too ashamed to invite anyone over and I'm miserable when I'm home, always on edge. I contacted the property and they have pest control come on Monday mornings. Because I work Sunday nights and Monday nights, I asked if they could schedule the pest control company later in the evening, very early in the morning, or another day. On Mondays, the only time I have to sleep are between the hours of 1030am-230pm. I would sleep in my car, but I have a child with me. We have nowhere else to go. I informed the property management of this buy, they were un-accommodating, therefore I'm seeking help from the Better Business Bureau. I even agreed to inhale the chemicals if they could just spray because I am desperate to get rid of the roaches. The leasing office said no and there's nothing else they can do. Today is June 16, 2018 and I have a killed 3 roaches in the bathroom, one on the stove, and two in the sink in the 5 hours I have been home. Roaches aside, I have not had a pleasant experience with the manager. I am a travel nurse and receive a housing stipend for living expenses. There are several other travel nurses that stay in the building as well who moved in prior to me. Even though I showed ample documentation proving my income, the manager was apprehensive to approve my application, denying me originally. He stated that he felt my documents were doctored although I am not sure how he came to this false conclusion. If it weren't for the leasing agent I was working with, I wouldn't have been able to move in. I am unsure why the other nurses were treated better and trusted more, but it is disappointing and disheartening. I had to show much more documentation like bank statements and my actual work contract in addition to the standard pay stubs, unlike my peers. I've had a terrible experience here so far and I have a 12 more months to go. I have asked the manager to move into a different unit, but he denied my request. I am not sure what else I can do. This has become a serious health hazard. I am suffering from panic and anxiety attacks due the roaches. I am afraid to use my fridge, dishwasher and stove. I have reported this company to Better Business Bureau. I would like Pacific Electric Lofts to schedule an exterminator any time besides 1030am-230pm on Monday until the roaches are gone, to be moved to a roach free unit, or to terminate my lease without penalty and receive my deposit back.
