DO NOT MOVE HERE UNLESS YOURE OK WITH BEING INFESTED WITH ROACHES. This apartment is now called Lakes at North Port. We keep our apartment SPOTLESS but have had an ongoing german cockroach infestation for almost a year. Pest control comes every single week and there's nothing that can really be done because roaches TRAVEL AND LIVE IN THE WALLS. My neighbors will agree that the whole building is infested. Staff refuses to solve issues and are so mean as if we want to be harassing them about having german cockroaches. I have gone as far as calling a private pest control company and paying $200 out of pocket for them to say there's nothing they can do when the roaches travel through the apartment walls. We are killing 5+ every single day and apartment REFUSES to move us to another unit or let us out of our lease. Will be calling an attorney. Please take this seriously if you are EVER considering moving here! I have a small child (1 year old) and this apartment is one of the worst mistakes of my life!

    This place is the worst! The maintenance crew left a deep mud-like stain (a streak maybe 11 inches long, 4 inches wide) on the carpet in the entrance of the apartment that I was never able to get out. It was a total eyesore because the rest of my apartment was immaculately kempt with brand new furniture and decor. Upon moving, I was blamed for the stain and charged the cost to replace the carpet in the ENTIRE apartment - not just a cleaning charge or an areal replacement - I was charged the cost of new carpet for the ENTIRE 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment!! Nearly $2,000!! I absolutely REFUSE to pay this. It's been a black spot on my, otherwise, excellent credit for years. The reason I left was because this place is the ------! I remember being up one night watching TV and hearing gun shots right outside the living room window. I ducked down behind the coach and called 911. For your own safety, don't live here! And if you do, don't trust the management.

      stealing from the residence; Riley chase aka the fountains charghing for water that the goverment gives them free

      I have lived here for 1 3month approx and yes their is mold and yes they do paint over rust mold and their charging us for water , to take out our own garbage and service fees. even though the water meters aren't hooked up where u can verify ur usage, they use a company out of california and all complaints are the go to aka the fountains aka Riley chase; the are charging from $120.00 to $93.50 for water and my fpl bill is usaually 55.00 so how can my water bill be $110.00; There's no proof of usage; none!!!!!! I've never had a water bill be in the hundreds. See they make over $30,000 a month and over $300,00 a year charing us this illegal water usage fees and trash and service fees; these are goverment housing and they are contracted as that as well; this is robbing the poor and afflicting the needy; May God take up our cause and be justice for us. Don't move here. And some of the employees talk about tentants personal business to future and resident customers; it was done to my family; I heard myself. unprofessional and and gossiping lying trashy… See More>

        DO NOT RENT HERE UNLESS YOUR WHITE TRASH!!!

        We moved here almost a year ago. When we moved in it was nice, peaceful and utilities were included. New management took over and you will get a H2o bill of approx. 120.00 which includes a trash fee and a fee for billing. They pressure wash the hallways and water will come in through the door and into your apartment. It looks like it has been flooded. Mold grows in the window sills and they do not do anything about it. It is noisy and the cops are here daily!!! You will not want to live here. It is a joke.

          Do not move here

          I've lived here for about 8 months now. We will start off with this place turning back into Riley chase, kids running around in the street,loud music playing, strange people looking into cars. Cops here just about every night. Another concern of mine is when you do call the office, there is never anyone to pick up. You have to go to the office to be able to contact them, which tells me poor management. Also the mold issue, there is mold here no matter what the office does say! I have a good friend that had to move out cause the mold was affecting his daughter and him very badly. You may not see mold why? cause they put 5 coats of paint over it to cover it up. Another issue is this water bill that all of a sudden showed up in our mailbox, I doubt the cost we pay certainly doesn't amount to what we use every month. Lastly, the office personnel aren't very inviting. So whom ever that does read this beware of this place. Once my lease is up, you wont find me living here no longer.

            Renters Beware!

            These apartments are not that bad except the issues are not being taken care of by the management. Our apartment had bad mold and they gave us some story about that it is normal and it is NOT! After 3 months of complaining and threatening they did finally replace all the drywall around the windows but by then my whole family had already been sick and we are going to move out asap. The neighbors were ok at first but then we had some party animals move in up stairs and another girl moved in with a really aggressive put bull mix that tries to attack me and my kids everytime she walking it, and the management has done nothing to quiet them down as a matter of fact they don't even return our phone calls. Go ahead call right now see if they answer, they only answer 50% of the time. The management lost one of our rent checks and we had to write them another check and then they magically found the original one. When we asked to have them pay for the cancelled check fee they refused and pretended that they had never… See More>

                DO NOT MOVE HERE!

                our lease is up in november and i cannot wait to leave this place! i have called numerous times about noise from little kids being way too loud at night and running around. they said that they cant do anything unless i know the name of the kids and the apartment number that they live at. so instead i have had to call the police dept and they had to come out. there is just way to many kids here. but i guess you get what you pay for. the mold in the apartment is bad. it is around all of our windows. they leak when it is really cold outside and your house is warm. i dont feel safe taking a walk around here with my 5 month old baby. cops are here all of the time. as a matter of fact one lives here. call the police dept. they know this place very very well! oh and you are not close to anything except a walgreens, publix, and a gas station. everything else is atleast 30 min away. so i do not recommend riley chase to anyone!!!!!

                    Lost some belongings

                    Hi, I just wanted to say I did not appreciate the apartment complex, trashing my belongings. I was dropped off at my grandma's and my boyfriend never came back for me, so I was unable to get back to the complex to retrieve my belongings. So I am not sure what my boyfriend left in the apartment. I just think it is unfair they do not give you time to come back for your things in case in the rush to leave you may have accidentally left something behind.

                        Loved it while here.

                        Hi All, I have lived in Riley Chase apartments for a year now, as of June 30th it will be 2 years, and now I feel due to the rent increase and gas expenditure that I no longer will be able to stay here. So I am going to move to Sarasota, closer to boyfriend's work and our families. I will miss the good times I had here, and the bad times will no longer bother me.

                            You cannot make an old place new.

                            I have been here almost 2 years and my rent is going up considerably. I did pay 552.00 for a 1 bedroom, now my rent will be 750.00 for the same one bedroom. So as of April 30th I will be giving notice to move out by June 30th. With all the new paint, and everything currently going on to better the place it will not really make any difference. Because a low income facility will always be a low income facility. I believe when people read the negative reviews they will definitely not wish to move in here. I am almost looking forward to moving out. Cannot wait to move back to Sarasota where my family is, and my boyfriend won't spend over 300.00 dollars on gas anymore. From driving from here to work every other day.

                              Don't waste your money!

                              You get what you pay for. There reputation of being the slums of North Port are dead on. They look good from the parking lot, but when you start to look, you would be suprised at what you find. Black mold in almost every room. Mantainence does a very poor job of trying to HIDE the problem, not fix it. Now with the new owners and substantial rent increase, I can't move fast enough.

                                I had some cash on hand in order to pay my last months rent at my old apartment. I moved in on Monday, but had to go out of town less than a week later...I was gone for two days and when I came back my money was GONE! I am not even sure I want to file a report as I do not have a Ppicture" or anything of the money.

                                  A typical day at Riley Chase-AKA "The Fountains of North Port"

                                  4/17/10-get used to the cops and all the people being loud all hours of the day and night. There were 5 cops to be exact yesterday in the parking lot when this was taken. We have also come home to cops running around with rifles and wouldn't tell us why. Scary! So when you ask how the noise and stuff is around here the office will say it is fine and they can't tell you anything because of the "privacy act". I will say you can call the local police department and ask about the activity here and they will tell you. The second picture is what happens when it rains. It leaks through the wall underneath the window. Not to be confused with leaking through the window. It is actually seeping through the wall its self. The picture was also taken on 4/17/10. After repairs were done on the outside walls to fix problems like this. The maintenance spray paints over mold and things like this to hide. I also noticed leaking through the roof and around my front door every time they pressure wash the halls. I would not recommend this place, not even after the new management has… See More>

                                      I have lived here less than a year and HATE it! The police are here all the time but management does nothing but give lip service. I agree with one other review that this is white trash hell. Management sends out notices (threats) but the tenants ignore them. The place is the pits and is not worth any price.

                                              I will be honest and say that in the past I've heard that Riley Chase wasn't all that great. But after being a resident here myself, I feel that living at Riley Chase is so peaceful. I think that the office and maintenance staff are excellent, helpfull and friendly. I'd refer everyone to move to Riley Chase. I'm very happy living here!

                                                Ok for low income and pet friendly

                                                I do have to agree with the first two ratings, but after living in the ------ of Bradenton for a year, this apartment complex was SO much better. Not saying perfect, as I don't think low income restricted and perfect can go together. I did have an apartment at the backside of the unit on purpose, I didn't want to be facing the driveway and added noise, so that may affect my review compared to others. I had a beautiful view of the woods behind me. I lived there slightly less than a year before deciding to move back to NY, but if I was still working down there I would probably still be in the complex. My apartment was great, had brand new carpeting, new closet doors, all appliances in good working order. AC worked great and was able to get replacement filters from the office. Never had great screens on the windows though, even after asking, so I just didn't open some windows. Never had any major breakdown or repairs, therefore I'm not sure about response time. I do know with my screens, they responded quickly to giving me screens but they had some holes in them that were… See More>

                                                  Agree Completely.

                                                  Riley Chase Looks good from the outside, but not a good place to live. People walking around at all times, and kids are extremely noisy. The kids also play in parking lot without any adult supervision. The police are out here constantly. Management doesn't care about what is going on, and it seems that the screening process for new tenants is non-existent.<br>This place has had a bad rep from day one, and even the North Port city council has had Vestcor, the management company, in to chastise them for "running a slum" when this place opened. Price is great, but you get what you pay for. Stay away.
