Although we strive daily to accommodate and please our residents, there are times when the lease is not abided by, and will lead to enforcement of the lease terms. It is unfortunate that we were not able to please the needs of this resident, but we will continue striving to accommodate the needs and concerns of over 250 residents here at Kensington Preserve Apartments.
