Resident 2015 - 2016 Not Recommended
Reviewed 06/16/2016
Although the apartments are nice and new, I have had extremely bad mold for the entire duration of my lease. I moved in June 2015 and noticed the wall between the shower and toilet in the bathroom was warped. A month later, it started getting worse to what I can only describe as a growth along that wall that became the size of tennis balls! I had maintenance fix it and I thought it had gotten better, but it came back. So I filed another (second) maintenance request. I assumed by the beginning of 2016 it was better. I had numerous sinus infections like I never have before, and just thought it was a bad allergy season. It came time to renew my lease and I agreed despite the $50 increase. I realized soon after that the mold was back, so told them I would not be renewing my lease. ---- (head manager) called me right away and sent maintenance to fix the mold again. I explained to her that each time maintenance "fixes" the mold, they only seem to make a cosmetic repair and not actually treat the mold. This was the third time the mold was being dealt with. But again, it was not fixed. I told ---- in person that I can still see black mold in the shower and that the repair was merely cosmetic. She said the moisture reading came back normal, but sent maintenance back. This time they added more caulk to the shower. So again, the fourth "fix" was only cosmetic. That was five weeks ago and that wall between the shower and toilet now looks like it is bubbling because of the mold growth! SEE THE ATTACHED PHOTO. I have no choice but to move, but it has been very stressful. Not once has ---- contacted me to see if the mold is resolved, or apologized for my experience, or even offered to move me into a different unit. At this point, I feel for the next tenants to live in that unit, and have a feeling they won't be staying more than a year, if they make it that long at all.
