Resident 2014 - 2015

I would never recommend Lake Eden appartment. They are nice when you first enter there leasing office but after you sign there lease they care less about the tenant or there property. Me and my fiance rented for a townhouse for a year and every month we called about our leaking basement. The whole point of having a basement is to use it without worrying about things getting damaged. We tried to get out of the lease early due to them entering our appartment multiple times but nothing getting anything fixed. We then decided to buy a house a few months Be for our lease was up and they told me owell I'm locked in a lease and hung up on me.After turning in a 30 day notice the month Be for the lease was up they put a notice on my door to enter the next day with no explanation. I now just got a statement with them wanting me to replace all carpet with no pictures of the areas needing replaced and stated I have 10 days to get the money or this will go to collections. The carpet has natural wear and tear and had been cleaned… See More>

    DO NOT RENT HERE!!! I moved in and there were roaches I mean 20-25 of them crawling on my wall at any given time. It took me complaining four or five times for them to treat and that didn't even work. I have to treat biweekly myself yes the rent is cheap but so is everything about this place! The paint is cheap water wipes it off the walls are thin I can hear everything everyone does around me. There's never parking I have two kids and work nights some time if I am working nights I'll go stay at a friends house instead of coming home because I have to walk a crossed a dimly lit parking lot carrying to sleeping children and then up two flights of steps which sound like they are going to fall apart at any minute with some very creepy people out walking around at all hours. The staff is the worse very rude and act like everything is your fault. One time mantinec came in to fix the tub which repeatedly leaks into the apartment below mine they ate food out for my refrigerato. They also go thru your stuff as if… See More>

      First time ever renting and this mad ruined my "out on your own for the first time" experience. There is a ROACH INFESTATION that they will spray for but will never work, and that has caused me to sleep in my CAR some nights.the walls are paper thin to where u can hear what the neighbors are doing, paint is so cheap even water will damage them. Under my kitchen sink u can see my tub, and i found a rat trap for the first time that i NEVER put in my apartment,Some of the office staff do not like their jobs and it shows. Please do not rent here unless you are comfortable with these conditions. Sometimes I just want to tell ppl I see going into the rental office to turn around now! PLEASE do your research before you move anywhere! Lesson Learned.

        Overall, you get what you pay for. It was very cheap and a decent amount of space. Actually, for a 1 bed at $399 a month, I had tons of space. A separate dinning nook and lots of closets. The apartment itself was nice with a view of the "Lake." If that's all you need is cheap space that is pet friendly and close to downtown, then I recommend Lake Eden. Otherwise, there are better places in Columbus. When I moved into the apartment, there were cockroaches. However, the landlord did have someone spray and it wasn't a problem after that. The majority of the problems I had involved maintenance and the neighbors. Every summer my AC wouldn't work. Every summer I called and called but wouldn't get a response. I had to live in the third floor apartment where it was 85 degrees INSIDE my apartment up to 3 weeks. Both summers I had a friend take care of my two dogs until the management finally came to look at the AC and recharged it. They always took their time to fix things; at least a couple… See More>

          My boyfriend and I have lived here for 5 months now and we are already ready to move but unfortunately have 7 months left on our lease... Maintenance is horrible you're lucky if you get 24 hr notice before they come in and even luckier if they fix the actual problem...we've had several things stolen from our apartment (our door and lock were never messed with,so it was someone with a key) and when I told the leasing office they acted like it was my fault...everyone in the leasing office has a different answer for everything No One seems to be on the same page...and Sherry is rude to everyone...they basically can't find their asses with both hands. The parking lot always has broken glass in it and beer bottles in the grass. Not mention they don't keep records very well...just recently they told us we never payed a pet deposit and I demanded they look through their records because we had and we weren't getting rid of our dog!! Since then we've had other problems such as pests (Spiders, flies, and our neighbors have even seen roaches and apparently a mouse. We can't wait to move trust me you… See More>

            My Father and I have lived in these apartments a long time. We have had two or three management change overs.. but now that it had become "Lake Eden" the staff, maintenance, roaches, and bed bugs are terrible. I grew up in this area and its slowly but surly getting worse. Not safe for kids or young women. I remember being Ten on my bike alone as long as you were home bu Street light o clock, everything was fine. I can't even walk my dog mid day without a creeper in a van or a gang of young men following me or cat calling. YOUR VEHICULA IS NOT SAFE HERE!!! In the past year and a half My fathers car was stolen (they drove it around the corner so i got it back) they cut the battery out of my car, broke into my fiancees truck, and stole my fathers car a 2nd time.. it was found half the city away and smashed to bits. I have also witness a truck set on fire and there is new glass on the parking lot every other week. DO NOT COME HERE!! We plan to leave our home of 10 … See More>

              lake Eden equals horrible

              I live here and i want to move already and i havent lived here that long only since october and i think it is unsafe for my son i think the neighbors are loud and nothing is being done about it and everything is breaking. our neighbors have been loud and wont leave us alone and some make us feel unsafe and the apartment people do nothing about it. everything has been breaking and stuff since we got here and theyre doing a crappy job fixing it. when we go to the office there playing or not working except two of them are working. if i had a choice i would move tomorrow. everytime we go to do laundry there are others clothes in there but no people... i really just hate it here

                One of the worst apartments in Franklin County

                Well where do I start? Move in. They were so nice. Very friendly and ready to help. The moment I got my keys it all went down hill. My apartment didn't have working A/C, the fridge was broken, stained carpet, and a hole in my bedroom door. I asked the rental office to come fix the A/C and it literally took 4 times over a 6 week period to get fixed. As time went on the bugs started; German Cockroaches. I have never in my life had a problem so I cleaned the apartment as much as possible but I saw no noticeable difference. I contaced the leasing office and they told me the exterminator only comes once a week; it took him a month to spray. I asked to leasing office to come out to see what I had and they said I was lying because they didn't see any; frat of all this bugs are nocturnal and secondly just because you don't see them doesn't mean they are not there. One by one my apartment started to fall apart. A police officer was shot right outside my apartment and my car was broken into. If you car about having… See More>

                  Could be worse...

                  I moved in shortly after this complex became Lake Eden Apartments. The staff was mostly friendly. They try to be nice but I feel they just tell you what you want to hear. There was a misunderstanding regarding my first rent payment causing me to short them. Instead of a friendly reminder they put a threatening eviction letter on my door which I found to be very rude. We got it fixed quickly and I didn't pay any late fess since it was a mutual mistake. Initially, maintenance was terrible! My fridge kept breaking and the same dumb guy would come out and replace the same WORKING part...at least 4-6 times. I finally stopped calling and just dealt with it. But after a few months I noticed new maintenance staff around so I called again. It took a few tries to find the problem but they fixed. The new staff is wonderful. They're quick to respond, very friendly and helpful. I haven't had any trouble since. I think I've been lucky so far. Most my neighbors are quiet and keep to themselves. Yes, there's idiots honking their horns as early as 5am. And loud music...mostly cars in the parking lot. On… See More>

                      Run away as fast as you can!!!

                      Stay as far away from this place as you possibly can!! Seriously, these apartments are falling apart and they are infested with bed bugs and roaches. Maintenance is a joke...the office will tell you that they have a great maintenance staff when you move in but they suck. If you have something that needs fixed you may as well do it yourself. The price is cheap and you find out why as soon as you move in. The managers sit around eating all day, blasting music, and are very rude. They don't want to do anything for you but you better have your rent in on time or they want to evict you. Go right next door. Same type of apartments but no bugs and the apartments are clean and still intact. Not to mention that they have an awesome fitness center. Stay as far away from Lake Eden as you possibly can.

                        Lake Eden

                        Lived here going on 14 years. My mom lives in the complex as well and has lived here for over 16 years. I have seen the good and the bad. The bad was with AIMCO. They did nothing but take your rent and never put back in the apartment community. Since New Life Properties took over in November/2008, they have done more in a short time span than AIMCO ever did in all the years they owned this place. Staff is very nice and professional towards me. They are cleaning out the less than desirable that have moved in here during AIMCO's reign of terror. They have Columbus Police as security patrol. They do this as overtime and are paid by the management office. They have installed security cameras around the office to ensure that if there is vandalism, it will be caught on camera. I believe in giving the new company the benefit of the doubt. I will be signing a new lease soon. My mom sooner than that. So I will make a further assessment at that time when I am with her.

                          Waste of time

                          This is, without a doubt, the worst apartment complex you will ever encounter. The staff is incredibly rude with their too-busy-for-you attitudes. You will never see the maintenance guys unless they are kicked back, eating Fritos in the leasing office. I have reported a hole in my ceiling five times. Each time, they either say "We will send someone out" and they never do, or one time someone actually came out, looked at the hole, and promised me they would be back the following week to tear out the ceiling and fix the leaky hole. That was three weeks ago. When I went into the office to complain again, not only did the man at the desk treat me badly, but the maintenance man actually said to me, "Oh, you still have that leak?" That was two weeks ago. Think I have seen him since? Also, if you do move in, pray that you don't have neighbors above or beside you. You will hear everything they say or do, literally everything. Trust me when I say, do not waste your time and money on this dump. I plan on posting this on every apartment review site because I am that fed up… See More>

                                Living at Lebanon Station was a nightmare from the beginning to the end. I lived there from May 2007 to May 2008, and all the negative things that other reviewers have said in the past are still true. My building was seriously infested with cockroaches, and management was not responsible about getting them under control. It took three months after my moving in and requesting an exterminator for them to respond, and they never did get the problem under control, even though I called the health department on them. I observed the noise, the yelling, and the apathetic office staff that others have commented on. CD's were stolen from my car when I first moved in. The apartment door stuck closed in the summer heat and the on-call maintenance man was across town when we called for help getting in...it took him an hour to get there. They advertise that there is a pool and a fitness center, but the fitness center was always locked and the pool was not always open when they said it would be. Finally, my roommate and I requested that they send our deposit to her when we moved out, since I would be moving… See More>

                                  the apartments are cockroach infested!!! Management doesnt seem to care! They just want to collect your rent check and not deal with your problems. Cars are broke into at least once a month!! And if there is a problem with something in your apartment... good luck on getting it fixed. I was without heat for a week in the winter and 3 weeks without air in the middle of june!!! And when i first called about the problem there were 6 other apartments without air ahead of me. If you call the emergency maintance... they may or may not show up... depending on if they want to. I called about a problem 3 times, got 1 no show, 1 hang up and finally got someone out once i asked for his name. The pool is a joke.. with no lifeguard around.. there was a 10 or 11 year kid running around with no clothes on. Some older kids took his bathsuit off him and threw them out of the pool forcing him to go naked... and there were 10 or 12 other kids aged 6 to 12 there... do you want to expose your children to… See More>

                                    it's ok for the price

                                    Look, for the price I'm paying it's a great deal. I'm paying 413 for a fairly large 2 bed room aparment that has brand new carpeting, newly painted walls, new dish washer, includes garbage disposal,and best of all I get free heat. The outside looks fairly good, even has a pond/lake outside. With that being said there are some issues. The neighbors can be a bit noisy at times, I don't think it's intolerable. There are a few maintence issues. From what my neighbors have said there has been some cars broken in. I don't feel unsafe walking around during the day, but I wouldn't do it at night. We did find a few roaches, but haven't seen any in a while. My recommendation is if you cannot afford anything better than this is a halfway decent value for the price, but if you can afford better to go for it.

Do you think I would have signed a lease if I had known this first, HECK NO!!! Its distgusting, they are crawling on my walls, in my cupboards, even in my dishwasher with the dishes I just washed hours before. Do not move here unless you like to live with bugs. I know I am not the only one with this problem here.

                                              I am so glad my lease is up next month you don't even know! I might even move out early and pay rent in both places. I'm not going to make this long but I will tell you about a few of my problems. First of all I only speak about four Spanish words so its hard for me to talk to almost anyone in the entire complex! My car has been broken into 3 times and my roommates once, just sad. I know its the west side but the area has got progressively worst over my two years. Maintenance seems to always be walking around but there not cleaning anything!!! There isn't even any grass in front of my apt, looks like a damn baseball field! I don't care how much you want to save do not move here unless you are -------- and you'll be right at home.

                                                IF YOU WANT SAFETY DO NOT COME HERE!

                                                Let's see here...where to start. I have had only horrible experiences since living at Lebanon Station. I learned this the hard way. I am suck living in the worst place I have ever lived. Crime is SO horrible and when you go to tell the office what is going on...well they say "Your being too dramatic" or even laugh at you when you tell them the story. So much for their support. I mean seriously they dont live here so what does that say? Sure it may be cheap , but your life is worth more than you could ever save living in this dump. Sure they tell you that 2 cops live here..that is funny because the first time our car got broken into it took 2 hours for a cop to arrive....rather odd if they live here. Also I have personally seen 4 or more men with hand guns arguing infront of MY car (through the peep whole). They are out several nights a week yelling and fighting. I have seen hand guns atleast 5 times in the 6 months that I have loved here. As far as noice..well it is certainly an issue. People play music all… See More>

                                                  Run Away!! Don't come here

                                                  This apartment complex was terrible with maintenance and management. Black mold grew from water leaking in the A/C unit (which I reported), and it took 2 months and a letter threatening a lawsuit before they addressed the issue. I was forced to relocate to another apartment, where I continued to experience major maintenance problems. The heat went out in the dead of winter and it took 3 days for them to fix. Their "work" then created a gas leak that took another day to fix. As for management, I paid my rent on time every month. However, one Sat. night I came home to find an eviction notice on my door saying I had 3 days to leave. When I pointed out the error to the manager, she laughed and said eviction notices were given to several people, half of which she suspects had actually paid their rent on time. DO NOT RENT HERE. P.S. I have seen several drug busts at this complex and 1 person get tackled by the cops as he ran from them with a cop helicopter above.
