Resident 2019 - 2020

DO NOT MOVE HERE! I lived here for a little over a year and it is the worst place I have ever lived. Infested with roaches bedbugs and mice! Staff is extremely rude. Maintance doesn't know how to fix anything. I went multiple months in the winter without heat. I have two small children and had to use space heaters to keep my apt at an okay temp and then they only half way fixed it. It was never more than 65 in my unit. My ceiling in my bathroom poured out water and almost caved in before they finally came and fixed it. I have found needles and alcohol bottles all through the grass. My kids weren't allowed to walk in the grass ever. My ac leaked all over my living room and damaged my at the time new TV. I'm so glad I don't rent there anymore.

    Property manager refuses to answer calls and texts. Never submits maintenance orders, especially when your sinks and tub is flooded on top of your toilet leaking for over two weeks!!!!! Don't give tenants 24 hour notices for anything!!!! Rude, disrespectful and hateful landlord!!!!!

      I'll just start off by saying DONT MOVE HERE!! Southern Knolls are terrible apartments to live in & im going to Explain why... The people in the office and management of the property do not care about their tenants. Maintenance people are also terrible and don't even Try to do their job correctly. I moved here in November 2018 & at this point I'm just waiting for my lease to be up so I can move immediately. Since I have lived here I have experienced nothing but problem after problem. Before I even moved into a unit here or signed the lease I constantly asked if there were BUGS multiple times, specifically roaches, and each time I was told "NO".. they move me into a unit on the bottom level and It's INFESTED with SO MANY BUGS (roaches, ground bugs, fleas & other bugs I've never seen before) falling from the ceiling, crawling out of the sockets & it also had Rats & mice. Their way of trying to fix it was spraying Some pest control stuff ( which didn't work of course) then about two Months later they let me move into a different unit in a different building...… See More>

        This Community is bias. I have lived here 2years now and since Southern Knolls LLC. and their Property management group Metro Property Management has taken over there has been an influx of crime and discrimination. Especially towards the elderly and disabled. For instance I have a therapeutic emotional support animal his name is Brutie. He is of the pitbully breed and I went to take him out last night for his evening potty break and was met with other tenant's whom do not know us and they physically blocked the 3rd floor fire door so that Brutie and I could not get to the stairs. I yelled he was friendly and an emotional support animal and they still held the door until I threatened to call the police. This is a single issue here a Watrous Apartments there has been vandalism in the parking lot including to my vehicle. There has been theft of vehicle's., there is multiple broken glass all throughout the property including the island where people have gatherings at the Northend of the parking lot blaring their music up until 2am in the morning. This is mainly a -------- Community and unfortunately I do not fit the… See More>

          The dirtiest apartments! He gave me the keys knowing there were bedbugs in my apartment. The maintenance told me and after putting my belongings in there I noticed bites. Landlord then tells me he thought the problem was took care of although he admitted he seen them in my closet just hours before letting me sign a lease! Dirty and unethical! Had me try and sign a paper saying I wouldn't take legal action! That's not happening! I have a case. Terrible. Do not move here!!!
