I have lived in Knightridge in a 2BR deluxe unit. We loved it when we moved in, but after a few months we couldn't wait to leave. Though we are in an upgraded unit the apartment has only seen facelifts when it really needs a complete renovation. There was mold in the bathroom ceiling from a leak, the leak progressed to having a hole in our ceiling. The situation was not fixed for almost 3 months. The mold problem continues, though I can't see it, I can smell it. I have had trouble with sinuses and allergies since living here, even my puppy has allergies from this place. After being gone for a week I was appauled at how much mildew and mold could be smelled when walking in the door. My upstairs neighbors has had a similar problem with mold. The building is very old and there is NO soundproofing at all! You can hear everything that goes on in other apartments, which was great when our first set of upstairs neighbors included an ex-con who would constantly yell at his girlfriend and baby. That was great to hear every day. Our neighbors across the hall also play their stereo so loud that it shakes my apartment and I have had to tell them to turn it off at 4AM or I would call the cops. My favorite is when their drunk friends would sleep in the entryway outside my door. Plus there is so much smoking in my neighbors apartment that it can be smelled in my apartment. The walls are so thin that my exterior wall moves if you lean against it. Maintenance was also an issue, though I have been told management has fired their maintenance man due to the problem. The office staff was always friendly and nice, but it doesn't make up for the living experience. By the end they should have been paying me to live there. The place isn't awful, we had a great amount of square footage for the price, but all other things considered I would rather pay more to live someplace nicer, which is exactly what I am going to do. We haven't had a move out inspection yet, but with as much of my security deposit that they automatically deduct plus the pet fee I will raise all kinds of hell if they try to charge me for any defects that are due to their awful workmanship.
