We moved to Waterleaf from WI when my husband was stationed at Camp Pendleton in 2018. He recently got orders so we had to give the office our 30 day notice. When we told the office we were moving, everyone was genuinely upset that we were… See More

First and foremost I would like to thank you for taking the time to bring this discontent to our attention. I truly regret to know we were not able to meet or exceed your expectations. Unfortunately move in and renewal concessions are given on specific lease terms and if that term cannot be fulfilled for any reason, the concession is required to be paid back. Service members that receive orders can terminate their lease agreement without any additional lease break fees. I remain at your disposal if you have anything else you would like to discuss.

First and foremost, I would like to thank you for your feedback and for bringing these issues to our attention. I would like to start by mentioning that replacing carpet is not standard procedure - carpet has a 7 year life. Unless something has happened to the carpet which would cause us to replace it before that time, standard procedure is to have it cleaned upon move out. The management at Waterleaf works closely with the Vista Sheriff's Department - we are a crime free certified community since 2010. Additionally, we conduct neighborhood watch meetings and have courtesy patrol 7 nights a week. Please accept my sincere apologies for not living up to your expectations. I invite you to come into the office and speak with me to see if we can make the remainder of your stay at Waterleaf more enjoyable.

The management staff at Waterleaf has contacted this resident and thoroughly investigated the situation to determine if there is any merit to these accusations. After careful consideration, we determined that due to the personal nature and inconsistencies written, it might be inappropriate to publically disclose extensive details here, but if anyone has any questions or concerns I would welcome you to contact me personally. Our reputation and your complete satisfaction are our top priorities. ________________________________________ Lquinsd, Each move out statement is specific to the length of time a resident has lived in the apartment and the condition of the apartment at time of move out. There are specific wear and tear guidelines that are in place for consistent move out processing. Condition of the apartment at time of move out is compared to the condition stated on the move in inspection form. Any discrepancies less wear and tear is what is charged. Additionally, the charges set forth are only those to pay for vendor services and/or parts needed. There is no surplus or profit being made from move out charges. I would be happy to discuss any specific items/charges with your daughter to see if any adjustment can be made.

Thank you for your review. We greatly appreciate feedback from our residents as this helps us to provide better service to our current and future residents. To our knowledge lead based paint has not been used at Waterleaf. In 1978, the federal government banned the use of lead based paint in all housing establishments. Our community was built in 1984-1985. We do provide complementary touch up paint for the walls and cabinetry in your apartment. If you need some for your kitchen cabinets, feel free to stop by the management office at your convenience. Most apartments do not have windows in the bathroom; it is very rare to find an apartment community with this feature. In their absence, we have installed exhaust fans in every bathroom to assist with the ventilation of the humidity created while showering. We do suggest leaving the fan on for at least ten minutes after showering to help the bathroom dry out and return the bathroom's humidity level to normal. Regular and preventative cleaning should help control any mildew growth (Waterleaf suggests wiping down any wet surfaces with a dry towel and using a bleach/water solution when deep cleaning). If you find that this issue persists beyond these preventative measures, please contact the management office so we may inspect to determine if there is a more serious issue. Because of your valuable feedback we are working on improvements that will allow us to meet all resident???s expectations and prevent future discontent with these matters.
