Resident · 2008 - 2009
The only reason I lived there it's location. Apartment was a walking distance from my work, so I was able to walk everyday. Unfortunately that wasn't right choice for place to live. So if you have other choices, please, don't move there unless you in need. From the most review you can see that person is really on the landlord site. However I have some many yes and no about this place, that this review will not hold all info. We moved into one recently "renovated" unit. Previous tenants paid probably around 700 dollars and landlord after cosmetic renovation increased this amount to 1095 per month. This place was cleaned when we moved, but wasn't so great after cheap painting. All kitchen cabinets and fixture were old and after couple days of living we'got visitors: roaches...so many..we felt like we are living in roaches factory. Yes, I would agree with last review that manager is a nice person. She was very nice to give us some sticky traps for roaches, but never told us for roaches problem before moving. Also it doesn't matter how clean you will keep your place - landlord will automatically charge your deposit for carpet shampoo and painting. I live in LA since 1997 and changed around 3 apartments. Here, first time, they did not return my security deposit in full. They charged me for the nail holes I left. Sad. I tried to be such a good tenant, paid rent on time, did not complain. Some might see this place a bargain. No, look around and you will find a better deal. Did I mention about rent increase after 1 year? I've got one, 60 dollars more. Well free gas utility offered by this place - doesn't make any difference. This place is really warm in winter, so you don't need use your heater, but air conditioner usage will run your budget our of roof. Pool is clean, but it mostly busy on Saturdays and Sundays. So try swim and relax early morning. There was not enough furniture in the pool area, but manager keeps saying that landlord is looking for new pool furniture. 3 month, 6 month, 1 year, well he is still looking. I did not that in Los Angeles impossible to find any pool furniture. Last review say that"All the people here seem pretty happy". Maybe, except that nobody greets you and you hear every week when the couple fights above you in the middle of the night. Parking: only 1 car, so if you have another one - park on the neighboring streets. Hope you fill find this review helpful. Perhaps I would not write this one if I would receive my security deposit fully back.
