Resident · 2012 - 2015
My son and his friend rented an apartment ,150 Husson Ave. Bangor Maine ,during their last 4 years of college. At the end of their lease they had to make sure that the apartment was completely clean in order to get back their security deposit . That's when I decided to take a trip to Bangor with my husband. We got there on a Friday and didn't leave until Sunday night. We cleaned things that I know never got cleaned before. I took the baseboards apart , moved the refrigerator and stove and cleaned the interior as well as the exterior, windows, cabinets and many other things. That apartment was cleaner than it was before he moved in. After everything was done I thought for sure we would not have a problem getting our full security deposit back. Boy was I wrong!! They finally sent our check back with a note stating that they sent their cleaning people in and claimed they spent 10 hours cleaning the place. I don't know where they sent them but it certainly wasn't my sons apartment. Each security deposit check was short by $110. ($220 total) when I called them to complain they told me that the cleaning people had to clean the refrigerator , and things were left in the cabinets. I told them that I made sure that everything on the cleaning list was completed thoroughly and also sent them pictures. Needless to say I never received the rest of my security deposit back and when you try to get in touch with them they don't respond. From what I understand this is not the first time Pinewood Apartment management has scammed people out of their money. If your looking to rent in the Bangor area , stay away from Pinewood Apartments!!!
