Resident 2018 - 2019


I am a current tenant at Hutton Farms and have lived in multiple units. I will say I am very surprised at the comments about people not getting their deposits back as I got a full refund minus pro-cleaning for tile and carpet. When I transferred to a different unit, I went through the move-out process (I might note that it is a very detailed move-out clean). I also have a pet, which I paid a deposit for as well. I appreciate how well the units are maintained. The ladies at the office are friendly as well. I have had and continue to have a great experience here at Hutton Farms!

    Horrible! Jamie & Jenny we're terribly racist towards me & my husband. We're an interracial family & they called the cops on us when we asked a question about our app (we were approved) & won't refund!

      Hutton Farms review This place is a decent place to live in Lawrence area, until you move out! The management of apartment makes money off of your deposit! When we moved in, the townhome was not perfectly clean since this apartment complex was built 12 some years ago. When we moved in, they give you a check-in sheet without telling you to write whether you find dust on light bulbs, on the walls, in the microwave, etc. However, on move-out date, they will sure find a lot of small places within the apartment where dust exists, and they will make sure that you pay for their apartment cleaning fee. I have rented different places for 15 years in my life, and the management of my past apartments had policy to charge for damaged property, never for the dust, and also spent their money to clean up the property after the move-out. However, I have never seen any places like this before. Hutton Farms management makes tenants pay for the dust on every parts inside apartment unit so that they can use tenants' deposit to pay for the cleaning the apartment after tenants move out.

        Lived there for 14 months.. Signed a six month lease then extended for a year which was creatively extended to 14 months. Upon moving out I was billed $2600 that included carpet and light bulbs! Before moving out management advised me not to thoroughly clean carpets bc they would professionally clean them anyway.. The carpet they claimed needed to be replaced for a price $1100 on a main floor of maybe 400 sq feet.. Watch out for management! They have a great racket going! Make sure to take pics and get everything in writing..

          I've lived in Hutton Farms since 2010 and am only now moving out because I've found somewhere slightly cheaper with similar amenities. The rent is expensive, but I've always had great luck with getting maintenance in a timely manner, and having my complaints addressed as best as the landlords have been able. I'm sort of surprised at the responses I've read here because I honestly haven't had much of any issues with the landlords...Although I may be revising this review when I move out and receive (or perhaps don't receive) my deposit. One gripe about the way my apartment is set up: NO PEEPHOLES IN THE DOORS. I have no clue WHY this tiny thing was overlooked in the design of these units but come on. I would like to see who is outside my door before opening it... The pet deposit is RIDICULOUS. For my dog, who is rather large, I paid an entire month's rent for my pet deposit. At the time I was moving, I didn't have much of a choice and not many other places will accept my dog, so I bit the bullet on that one. My security deposit fee was 1/2 month's rent. I also… See More>

            I have lived here for a few months now and it has not been a good experience. To start with the upstairs is about 10-15 degrees hotter than the down stairs and the staff's response is to close the vents down stairs. I have done this and it hasn't helped. My Westar bill is much higher than I've ever paid living in a similar sized place. I have also had an issue with bugs (black rolly pollys and spiders). They crawl in around the floor boards. I have called about the problem at least five times. The first time I was told they spray once a month and that takes is what they can do (spraying didn't help, they are still coming in). The staff was very rude and condescending and said that many people in the complex are having the problem and it is because we had a mild winter and it is common in Kansas. I have spoken with other people in Lawrence who do not live in Hutton Farms and they said they do not have a bug problem, despite the mild winter. The second time I… See More>

              Best landscape, worst office staff

              It looks great from the outside. However, the whole thing is crumbling inside. Office staff is unbelievably unfriendly and arrogant, blaming tenants for their poor construction and maintenance. I would recommend this apartment only to those who are willing to pay $100 per month for their nice landscaping.

                Awful Management

                Before you sign the lease ----- seems very nice, then you sign the lease and she changes completely. The gates never once worked when I lived there, and the advertised hot tubs were no where to be found. When we asked about the hot tubs they took them off the website and said they weren't available anymore. Hard to work with and then when you move out YOU WILL NOT GET ANY OF YOUR DEPOSIT BACK! They will also send you a bill for the extras! My apartment was much cleaner then when we moved in. Cleaned the place every night after work for a week and a half! Carpets were professionally cleaned and still got a huge bill for a lot of bs! KNOW YOUR RIGHTS, look at the Kansas Landlord and Tenant Act and CALL HUTTON FARMS OUT WHEN THEY STEP OUT OF LEGAL LINE! Most importantly don't live here! You will regret it when you move out. I would be willing to bet the positive reviews on here and the replies are from Hutton Farms staff.

                  best place i've ever lived

                  This place is amazing!! The office staff is wonderful (Jenny, Josh and Anna especially), grounds beautiful and relatively quiet depending on which side you live on. I lived there two years before graduating and relocating to Dallas. I love Texas but have been searching for an apartment/townhouse for months that compares to Hutton and have found nothing!! Yes, Peterson and Kasold is a bit of a trek from the bars but its worth it to live at such a gorgeous complex. I can't say enough about Hutton, I am constantly wishing I could find a place to live like it in Dallas. This place is worth every penny.

                    Great place to live! It is quiet and well kept. All of the office staff was nice and inviting. Maintenance problems were fixed promptly. Can't say enough about how nice this place is. There is no other comparable complex in Lawrence!!!

                      Nice Place

                      I recently moved out of Hutton Farms. I lived in a two bedroom townhome (with garage) for 3 years. It was generally very nice and quiet. I rarely, if ever, heard the neighbors next door. The few maintenance issues I had were resolved quickly. The master bedroom is huge and there are many nice features throughout(crown molding, stone counter-tops, etc.). It was slightly more expensive than other places in Lawrence, but the privacy and superior quality made the investment worthwhile. I was concerned after reading some of the online comments that they would be unfair about fines and fees when moving out. I received my full deposit back including a pet deposit. Although, I did spend many hours cleaning (roughly 18). My only complaint is that access to the gym should be included with the rent price and construction kept to a minimum during early morning hours.

                        Overall great experience

                        I lived in a 4BR house at Hutton Farms from the time they opened until July of 2007. No management company is perfect, but I think Tuckaway did a good job with this property. Pros: * Great curb appeal and great floorplans * Units are large, thoughtfully designed and look high-quality in and out. * Landscaping and pools are amazing, when they are open * Great maintenance guy Cons: * Low-end windows and underpowered A/C made the upstairs uncomfortable during the summer. Very high electricity bills in the summer. * Management is not quite as tenant-oriented as should be expected at this price point. I do understand some of the negative reviews and had my fair share of problems. But I think that there are problems with any rental property and this landlord did a better job than most of handling them. Yes there are some cheap areas in the contruction, but again all rentals have those. All-in-all, these are some of the best rental units in Lawrence, and certainly the best grounds.

                          It's okay

                          My wife and I like our apartment, although the heating and a/c aren't great on the second floor...they've always responded quickly to maintenance issues...wish the gym were open 24 hours...other than that no major complaints

                            beautiful townhomes- but big move out problem

                            I absolutely loved living in Hutton Farms. The floorplans and interior fixtures, rooms, designs are all fabulous. The community has a really comfortable, safe, and inviting feel to it. The pools are awesome. I think this is one of the better places to live in Lawrence and I've been here for 6 years. I left my house 20 minutes before class- so the drive is not bad to campus. The maintenance guy was great, but the office staff isn't very helpful.<br><br>My complaints: <br><br>1. They tried to make me renew 7 months before my lease was over. It was impossible to make a decision that early so I had to give up my apartment. <br> <br>2. On the day of move-out my apartment was literally spotless- the result of an entire weekend of 6 people cleaning it. It was literally cleaner than the day I moved in. They kept $700 of my deposit. There was no way to dispute it fairly and I lost my money. The staff was rude and unhelpful in this situation. I felt bullied. This was the WORST move-out experience I've ever… See More>

                                  I've lived here for over two years and have nothing but good things to say about Hutton Farms. The floorplans are great, and the neighborhood is kept so well that reminds me of a resort - especially in the spring and summer! The staff is always friendly and maintenance is quick (though you rarely need to call them). They even have a notary on-site which is very handy for the self-employed!

                                      I'm a little surprised about all of the complaints - my unit is perfect. When I've had a few routine maintenance requests, they've always been very quick to respond. After a recent ice storm, I was VERY impressed that they chipped all of the ice off of the sidewalks within a day or so. The community has excellent curb appeal too.

                                        Worst Mistake Ever...

                                        There is absolutely no way anybody but the rich and famous should live in Hutton Farms. Continuing along with the theme of prior complaints: poor construction equals insane maintenance fees (e.g. flush the toilet and it leaks into the garage [$1700]), paying for an advertised workout center and car wash ($7 for a car wash in a gated community and $30/person/month that's right per person for the workout faclity, but at least basic cable is included in the $1450/3 bedroom price), and finally back to the move out cost (My last day at Hutton Farms was the best day of my life, until we got the cleaning bill. Purely outrageous.period. The staff is unequivocally the rudest staff ever, unless you are never there and never ask them for anything (like a new light bulb). When it comes down to it, nobody should have to pay that much for an island in the kitchen and a garage. Focus elsewhere...i forgot to mention ripping up the roads at the entrance and the overall location (nearest sign of life...over a half mile away)

                                          Don't Expect Them to Know Who You Are, an Illusion of "Luxury"

                                          I can't decide where I was treated worse, when I rented from a slumlord or when I rented from these people. The management was condescending, rude, and careless. They never wrote down anything when I needed it fixed and so some things never got done (and I got charged for them when I moved out). The townhomes are cheaply built, we had door knobs falls off, nails coming up through carpet, crappy paint (that I got charged for when I moved out even though it was construction flaws), vents fall out of the ceiling, and horrible insulation issues. DO NOT GIVE THESE PEOPLE A PET DEPOSIT! You will never see it again. They will find things to charge you for, just to dip into your pet deposit. I worked as a professional housekeeper six years through school, so when I left the house it was next to immaculate, and they took over 500 dollars from me.

                                              Place is ok until you move out...

                                              The place is nice, but cheaply built and poorly constructed. Parking is OK and noise is not an issue, but when you get ready to move out, be prepared. Management is a joke when it comes to customer service, and they feel like they can charge you for whatever they like when you leave. After your move out inspection is signed, they will suddenly find "hidden" damage that is not and was not hidden and charge you for it. The best advice I can give is Photograph EVERYTHING and don't take their ---- lying down. Fight them all the way if they try to screw you on move out...

                                                Hutton Farms is the most beautiful apartment complex in Lawrence hands down. You seriously feel like you have left the real world and entered "Pleasantville" every time you enter the complex. The units are finished out so well, crown molding, quality hardware, nice tile, big kitchens, they don't cut corners in construction. Parking is never and issue and being a single woman, I have always felt super safe here. There are two great pools, although not huge, are amazing in the summer time. Although there is a very large number of college kids at Hutton Farms, I have never felt like noise or partying gets out of hand. Any maintenance has always been handled quickly and the guys are always really nice. The landscaping is very nice and the grounds are well taken care of. Sadly this is my last year here, but I can truly say I loved it and wish I didn't have to move, but I am going to Kansas City. Hope this helps.

Everything from our move in to calling the office has been handled with care. We leased over the phone and internet and took care of all the paperwork via fax. And were very glad we chose Hutton Farms when we arrived. Keep up the good work!
