Aldrich Ave. Apartments
Resident · 2014 - 2015
I moved into my apt aug 2014 and did not renew my lease with John. Before even getting my keys John was hostile towards my concerned best friend and threatened to evict me before I even moved in. Professionalism is not a quality that this "company" has, among other things. It took three months for me to get a copy of my lease, upon getting it I realized I had been over paying my rent. During this time my kitchen light string broke and I was unable to even use my kitchen light. I sent at least two letters on the matter, both of which were never even acknowledged the remaining 9 months I lived there. The washing machines in the basement were in abysmal condition, often times when I wanted to do laundry both of the washers were inaccessible. One due to disgusting stagnant water that had filled the entire drum, while the other was unplugged and had a rather large board placed over top it. This was the case several times when i wanted to do laundry on the premises. I was able to do laundry successfully maybe three times in my 12 months of living there. During the summer that I moved in, it became apparent that there was a leaking hole in the ceiling of the third floor hallway out side my apt. Thankfully it didn't leak in, but added to the dialect maintenance. An attempt to patch it was made during winter, but was unsuccessful and i found a puddle to form on the carpet everytime it rained. During the latter half of my stay in this complex, i found a new addition of a trash can to catch the rain was added to the hallway. I documented several nail holes in my apt before I even moved in, all of which was blamed on me when I moved out. Upon moving out, I was finally "given back" the money I had over paid the first three months of living there, but found that i had been deducted because of the aforementioned nail holes i did not create, the light kitchen fixture (that had been broken three months into moving in and of which I did send requests for maintenance for early into living there) and finally (but not lastly) was given a late charge because I had returned the keys "untimely". I had returned the keys the last day of my lease and I believe that it is an unwarranted charge because they were not late. I adamantly discourage folks from allowing yourself to face these conditions. It is cheap in all respects, but you indeed get what you pay for.
