My roomate and I moved in almost 2 yrs ago and will not renew. All was good when we looked at Bel Air, the rocker guy who showed us was very concerened in what we where looking for within our budget and rented us a two bed/two bath overlooking the pond. Since then the pond went dry and our view(we paid a premium for the view)as well. Now we have received a rental increase letter stating our rent went up $410 per Month! INSANE! I contacted the office and wanted to speak with the rocker a few times and was told he was out of the office. The reason we wanted to talk with him is because these fly by night I dont care its just a paycheck attitude from the ever changing office staff give such an attitude we wanted to talk to someone who 'seems' to care. The guy we talked with said there is nothing he or the office can do that it is Essex's, owners, fault the rent increased. Both my roomate called a couple of times with hope we can talk about the increase, the pond and the run down grounds, but each person we talk with DOES NOT CARE! We are moving and wanted to use this forum to express to those looking, think twice unless you want high rent, crappy grounds, construction and terrible staff!
