Unprofessional behavior

I had an appointment with them at 09:00 am I was in the building, and I waited for almost 48 minutes some person from management come and address my issue, despite lame excuses no one come up and finally I am lucky enough to save… See More >

    Are you thinking about moving off campus here? Don't. It's close by to Loyola and many of the residents here are students but it's not worth it. The whole of Lakeside Management is actually owned by Loyola! (as if you weren't giving them enough money).… See More >

      Right off the bat, if you are looking at at staying with the Sovereign, or any building owned by Lakeside Management, who owns the Sovereign, look elsewhere. I lived in the Sovereign for many years. The building was purchased a few years back by Lakeside… See More >

        Hot water burns you when you shower, kitchen sink was painted and chipped off quickly. Ceiling leaked all over my bed. Maintenance came in while I was gone and left windows open when I wasn't home. Good thing my cat didn't get out. I… See More >

              an't wait until my lease is up- the management is either unavailable or unwilling to meet with you. Maintenance is the same way. Let's not forget the mice infestation. You're better off spending more $$ for a better place and better people to… See More >

                    I didn t mind living here, but it all went down hill very quickly. They towed my car even though I pay $115 a month to park it in the same spot everyday. The people who towed it damaged it and the building… See More >

                      I lived at the Sovereign for 2 years and was satisfied overall, but I will be honest about both the pros and the cons. The Sovereign has a great location. It is near (withing 2 blocks) from both the 147 bus and the… See More >

                              You will be better off living in a dumpster than this shanty. I lived with 3 other tenants in PHN at the Sovereign. Initially it was not so bad despite dead cockroaches everywhere and very dirty rooms, I won't go into details about the bathrooms.… See More >
