Devou Village Apartments
Resident • 2011 - 2013 Not Recommended
DO NOT MOVE HERE!!! I'm a simple person. It takes a lot to piss me off. It takes a lot to make me angry. Soooo... that being said... I won't complain that the complex as a whole looks like a dirty filthy early 1970's slum. I could care less that the kitchen reminds me of an inner city project house that I see on A&E's "First 48." The toilet screwing up weekly and the daily AC leaks in the summer didn't bother me. And even the fact that I had daily relationships with stink bugs, centipedes, and silverfish didn't influence my frustrations with this place. What really made me uncomfortable? What gave me anxiety and stress?? The management! ------------- is a tyrant! I've read other reviews describing her as rude. Rude?? That is an absolute understatement. She is a dictating tyrant. I'm convinced she and her staff are not good human beings. For the size of a one bedroom apartment, rent was absolutely reasonable. $520 dollars a month more the size of the provided one bedroom apartments is definitely a good deal. I love the location. Parking? No problem. But do not get comfortabe! There is ABSOLUTELY ZERO communication between tennant and management. No email forum. No internet payments. Rent is due every month, obviously. Instead of joining the rest of the world in the 21st century with online options, you have to write a check, drive passed the guardian management officess to the post office to mail your check. DON'T BE LATE! RENT IS DUE ON THE 1ST! YOU CAN PAY IT AS LATE AS THE 5TH. EACH DAY YOU'RE LATE AFTER THE 5TH, YOU'RE CHARGED DAILY UNTIL THE 10TH. THEN YOU GET AN EVICTIION NOTICE. NOT UNCOMMON, I UNDERSTAND THIS. I paid late one time within that time frame...but i mispaid by 5 dollars!! Instead of getting a phone call, an email, or anything else technologically reasonable, I came home from work to an eviction notice slammed inside the crack of my door. It was over 15 bucks!! I paid late! My fault. The check I mailed was late and I didn't pay the exact ammount of late fee. Sooooo...instead of getting a warning, a phone call, an email, or even a warning, I was given an anxiety consumed piece of paper jammed into my door. I payed it and regretfully continued to stay. This place is awful. Absolutely awful. The property manager avoids personal contact. She has her assistant do all her dirty work. I received a "non renewal notice" in the mail on thanksgiving day!! Basically telling me that I'm not being evicted, buuuuuuut that I have to get the hell out. Why?? They said that according to the lease agreement, they didn't have to give me a reason. How do you tell someone to get out of their home without telling them why?? If anything else, give me a reason so I can learn from it. Goodness. I haven't even mentioned that last summer, there was a wasted piece of trash who threatened me and my buddy at the pool.
