Thankful for Bradford Lakes

I wasnt very confident moving to a new state with my two boys 9&5 years old, two deceased parents that died before I became a mother and currently staying with someone. I came into Bradford lake apartments and asked about applying. Jaquetta Oliver greets me with a smile and also helped me with the application. Very attentive, patient and helpful. What seemed like what was probably a regular day to Ms Oliver was a life changing experience for me. I had thoughts of giving up and was really sad about apartment hunting but Jaquetta Olivers smile and attitude made me feel like I am on the right path and on my way to being on my own. Thankyou so much you never know why you are led to some places and it costs absolutely nothing to smile, help, and just do your job. All the previous places I came into for assistance with applying for places I dealt with so much nasty attitudes and no patience at all until I came to Bradford lake Apartments and was greeted and helped by Ms Oliver. I hope Bradford lakes will be my new home to finally have some stability for my boys.… See More>

    Great Customer Service

    Emily was very nice in helping me complete my application yesterday. I am a prospective tenant and I think I love the place already. Thank you, Emily! I wish I had known about this place three years ago.

        Just no.

        The girl who got me in around six months ago was extremely new. I’m new to renting apartments. But I write down EVERYTHING. Not once did she tell me my electric was separate. “Everything included”. I’ve been billed for over six months without knowing. They handed me my mail key and it was the wrong one. Told me I had to go to the post office and pay for a new one. I was promised a downstairs apartment since I have a son and I’m pregnant. I was moved upstairs and the same girl told me they could move me downstairs once something opens up. I’ve been billed every month for an extra $300 for the electric. I’ve paid it every time. Yet they still send copious amounts of bills to EVERYONES door. They wouldn’t let me talk to them and ask questions about the electric, or really anything I’m having trouble understanding! Just don’t do it. You’ll lose more than you gain. May take this to court.

          No one tells you about the asbestos and lead paint upon moving in. Had a leak for 8 years, Sydenia approved the property manager charging me $300 to place vinyl over the old vinyl to cover the leak. Took the Board of Health and maggots to "fix" the leak yet no one will tell me what the cause was. There's been multiple leaks w mold. My daughter and I have allergies, sinus, and cognitive issues due to leaks. A girl had both legs amputated bc of raw sewage two years ago. No one will tell you answers "I don't know, that was in the past" "Let's move forward" is the response. There are conduits busted w wires exposed. Kids get by with stealing. There's ppl that live in the woods. Very unsafe place, do not raise your kids here. Their websites are fake w edited pics. Can't even write a review without it being censured. My daughter said this apartment is killing us, we feel so sick all the time.

              If you are elderly dont move in here. 8o years old and dying of heart failure and they are trying to change my rent to where I cant afford it due to not signing paperwork on time. Going to be evicted at the end of this month.

                do not move here ever. If you want an apartment here they will lie to you about how long it takes to get in on section 8. I was told a year tops. It was a year and two months. In that time i was told my apartment was ready three times, then they changed their minds. I finally got in and the apartment was covered in ants. There's apartment break ins as well as cars everyday. The staff will accuse you of doing things that you aren't even doing and their very rude and down right mean about it. we won't even discuss maintenance.

                  Horrible Place!!!!!

                  Within the first month of me moving in to the apartment my car was broken into, and every two weeks I have to call maintenance to relight my pilot because the heat isn't working properly. There is always a problem in this apartment and then your stuck here for a whole year. Also the staff messed up my lease so many times its ridiculous!

                    The apartments are decent for the price, but don't have anything go wrong because it'll take forever to repair. The neighbors are noisy and no actions are ever taken to get the noise under control no matter how many complaints you put in. They have horrible business hours if you work a legitimate 8am-5pm! So for those of you who have real jobs, such as I, end your search here! Pathetic excuse for an apartment complex...I wish I had looked at this website before I moved here.

                      So so

                      For the price you get a lot of space. However, maintenance sucks (doesn't it always?) and we had an attempted break-in. It is more family friendly than the average complex and does have sort of a community feel between parents.

                        The townhomes are a nice size, but the apartments them self suck. The office staff is horrible and maintainence takes forever to do repairs and then don't repair it right. I lived here for thre years and regret every year. The apartments is filled with residents who don't have respect for other residents property and the office do not stay on top of things in the apartments that needs to addressed. If you don't mind mold;cars getting broken into or hit by residents who can't drive; mice;new office staff every few months then this apartments may be for you.I do not recommend these apartments to anyone.All they are worried about is getting your money and keeping the outside looking clean rather then keeping their current residents happy about the living conditions. I'm moving out soon and I can't wait. I will not miss this place. I hate it and I'm not a resident that has been put out. I pay my rent oin time and attend to my business. Beware of this place if you can. Don't move here because I can guartee that you'll regret as well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                          Don't Move Here Unless You Have No Other Choice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                          This place may look nice, but don't let the looks fool you. I lived at these apartments for over three years. The staff in the office lie, they tell you what you want to hear to get your business. The maintenance staff are very lazy and they take forever to complete work orders. Cars get broken into all the time. The outside lighting is always broken. If you do decide to move here, don't say I didn't warn you.

                            not recommended-anonymous

                            I have lived in these apartments for a few years now, maintenance don't fix much. They can't admit when they dont know how to fix something, so therefore they dont call the appropriate people to fix it and the problems goes unresolved and the issue becomes worse. This is the last place I would recommend anyone to move. Management don't seem to know the answers to important questions pertaining to certain answers that they should, therefore you have to search for the answer yourself and have proof that its the correct answer and that they are wrong before anything gets resolved. I would not recommend these apartments. The elementary school that the children attend is a Title 1 school, meaning that their istep scores are quite low and it is definately over crowded due to the deifferent cultures that live here that can't speak english which holds the other children back because they have to cater to these students. The laundry room here is filthy dirty. People don't know how to drive or park here.

                              The apartment is large but having to walk a 1/2 mile to my car sucks, especially when carrying groceries and laundry.I don't understand why there are no washer/dryer hookups in 2 bedroom townhomes, but there is in the 3 bedroom townhomes. The laundry room is totally the pits. The foreigners allow their kids to do the laundry and they leave it a mess. People from other places use our laundry room. The cost of doing laundry at Bradford Lake is more expensive than the laundromat.Outdoor lighting is horrible. I live back by the lake. It is pitch black.Because I have to park so far away, I am afraid to go to my car at night. There is no lighting at all, except from the apartment complex behind us, and it is masked by trees so it is next to nothing!

                                i would move if i could afford to

                                don't get me wrong the apartments are nice but there is no privacy what so ever. i can't take my kids to the playground because their is garbage everywhere. the staff make rules but they don't inforce them. the patio is small so you can't do much back their. property gets damaged because parents don't watch their kids and i agree with another persons review nobody speaks english. i have people that just run through my bushes in front of my apartment. i have to go out and clean out front because the kids leave their trash every where and i constantly am worried that my car is going to get damaged because kids skateboard and play soccer in the parking lot. i have had to make complaints because i have had chewed bubble gum stuck to my cars windsheild which is totally gross. i also don't like being side by side to other people because when they make noise you can here it or when they shut their front doors you can here it.

                                  wish I could move

                                  If I could afford to live somewhere else and had transportation, I would move in a heartbeat. Maintenance takes forever to fix things, if they fix them at all. Barely anyone speaks English any more. Had plumbing problems for over 3 months. Still not fixed. Now dealing with mold/mildew issues. Afraid to call in new issues because the old ones still aren't fixed. Don't feel safe here!!!

                                    Nice Apartments but a little noisy

                                    I have lived here for over 2 years and I love the Apartments themselves, would like a washer and dryer. The only problem with living here is the amount of young people that like to boom their music. Whether it be inside or out. I finally got lucky and my neighbors in my building are quiet but the next building over not so lucky. There has been a lot of car break-in's also, luckily not mine but people that I know.
