Resident 2000 - 2002 Not Recommended
Reviewed 03/05/2002
Opinion: Terrible Maintenence ! Don´t be fooled by the good location !! <br><br>From: -Anonymous- Date: 10/9/2000 <br><br> <br><br>Fountain Park Apartments <br><br> <br><br>1026 S De Anza Blvd <br><br> <br><br>San Jose, CA 95129 <br><br> <br><br>408-255-1000 <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>The place is run in an absolutely archaic fashion by a bunch of 60-year-olds. No computers; they use notecards instead. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>The staff is horrible at fixing things. Poor response time, cheap, fight you all the way <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>I have had the following problems in my two (2) months there: <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>Missing baseboard from most walls. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>There is dried paint on all the floors that was never cleaned up for removed. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>Toilet not flushing properly. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>No porchlight. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>Sewer line burst; could not use toilet, shower, bathtub, sink or any water related future for whole day. In addition the staff did not go into my apartment afterwards to see if everything was okay, nor did they leave me a note or call to let me know the status of my problem. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>The front door handle is loose and falling apart. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>The breaker was turned off for the stove when I moved in. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>The refrigerator was not secured to the floor ! <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>The kitchen cabinets had to be adjusted so the kitchen cabinet doors would not run into the freezer door. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>The carpets are worn and dirty. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>These is no fire extinguisher in the apartment. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>The sink faucet was missing the aerator and the new one does work properly. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>There is no ceiling fan and the kitchen and bathroom fans are weak. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>The garbage disposal works poorly and they resist my requests to replace it. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>Hot water is slow to come on in the bathroom and kitchen sinks. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>There is no storage space. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>The kitchen has minimal space for storage and no pantry. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>The bathtub latch and release does not work and management does not want to tear out the bathroom walls to fix it. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>The bathtub faucet was filled with rust and working poorly and had to be replaced within my first week. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>The management seems to be find any and all maintenance requests to be a burden and take offense at any service requests. They seem to have very little pride in their work. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>The building is 25 years old and starting to really show it´s age. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>I would only recommend this place for it´s proximity to many important roads and places such as Apple Computer, Cupertino, 85 and 280, and Saratoga and the fact that is safe and quiet. <br><br> <br><br>Saratoga and the fact that is safe and quiet. <br> <br>These problems were just in the first two months ! <br> <br>I finally left for something better and cheaper in 2002. <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br> <br><br>
