This review is about the Homestead apartments as well as Parklane Managment Company. I will never rent anything by Parklane Management Company again. Here's a detailed list why 1. I had to rent my apartment site unseen because I was moving across country; the ad I found lied about the air conditioning. The ad said the apartment had central air, but when I arrived there was an extremely old, extremely loud wall unit. I never would have rented the apartment if I had known. 2. There was obvious water damage (which means the strong possibility of mold) in several places in the ceiling of my apartment. There was also a leak in my kitchen that was never fixed despite contacting management/ maintenance several times. Each time I was told it's "fixed" but the leak continued the entire time I lived there. Basically, I couldn't use an entire cupboard in my already small kitchen because the roof was leaking. 3. They required the carpets and blinds to be "professionally" cleaned, but there were dirty drip marks on all the blinds and window sills when I moved in. I also cleaned the carpet about a week after moving in and the water was literally black when I was finished. 4. When I was trying to move out, my new landlord called and left messages on two different numbers on several different occasions and no one ever called her back. This is no different if you have a problem. One morning I walked outside to find there was blood on the stairs, side the building, and the railing. I had to send 3 emails to management (they keep changing their structure to make it "easier" to get a problem resolved) to get to the right person. Then it was cleaned up 2-3 days later (over a week after the incident happened). The neighborhood is great if you can handle the awful management company and the old, outdated apartment.
