Management decided not renew my lease after 10 years without a reason. I was told they didn't have to. I enjoyed living here while serving in the military. My family has 1 month to vacate. Tenant rights?

This is probably the worst apartment complex I have ever lived in. It is absolutely horrible. They think slapping on some coats of disgusting vomit colored paint will fix it. I have lived here since the summer of 2016 and regret every day of it. The… See More

Thank you for your feedback. Some of our studio apartments are upgraded with premier packages including new cabinets/granite counters & Washer/Dryers appliances...which go for the rent you quoted. Currently, there are no rent increases at renewal for residents signing a 12 month lease. The only reason a rent would increase the amount you stated is if a resident requests to go month-to-month at the end of their lease term. For others, we actually give large renewal rewards (up to $400) to those that sign longer renewal leases. We have been told that our strict security is a feature most desire in a New Orleans based community. Hurricane Isaac was an Act of Nature and something the Mayor did not see fit to call for a mandatory evacuation in New Orleans Parish, however, we did make allowances for residents who were vacating afterwards. We are sorry you felt differently and would love the opportunity to discuss your viewpoint further and encourage you to call us!
