Living here is great. I like the apartments. We've lived here for one year and haven't had many major issues. The maintenance is pretty prompt and the grounds are very well kept. My dissatisfaction is the way management handles lease renewal. In EVERY other apartment we've lived in, when the lease lapses, it automatically transfers to a month to month lease for the current rent we were paying OR a very nominal increase. With this apartment's lease renewal they give you options of a 12 month/6 month/ or month to month re-let and the rate increases by increments for each one. For the 12 month re-let the rent has increased by over $100/month (from $1695 to $1829) and if we do a month to month, it's over $200 more/month than our current rent ($1904). This has put us in a difficult situation as the economy is affecting jobs and we don't know how long we will be staying in the area and DON'T want to be stuck responsible for a second lease. However, if we chose the month to month until we know about our jobs, and then try to do a 12 month, we are stuck at the month to month rate rather than the 12 month rate. A little underhanded, I think.
