Resident 2020


I had a horrible experience with them they sued me for only being behind rent two weeks! But yet they didn't sue anybody else who was behind to three months? Management is horrible he doesn't care about what's going on with Covid The Manager of the property is horrible and does not respect your privacy he will go into your apartment when you're not home and not even let you know he was there. Whatever you do do not rent from this place!

    I rented here for almost four years. I strongly recommend looking elsewhere if you can afford to. - Maintenance: a joke. The previous manager did repairs so poorly or not at all that I stopped calling unless it was an emergency like the tile falling out of the bathtub because of the thick, black mold underneath. This was fixed by slapping up some plastic panels and the job didn't get finished, but my bath mat got ruined. The building didn't have a back door for around a year because they kept falling off. This meant it snowed inside in winter and the electric heating bills skyrocketed. At one point the door was boarded shut which the fire chief had to put an end to. Also there was serious flooding in multiple basements so don't ever store anything down there. One had several inches of water multiple times due to a drainage pipe pointed down into the basement. - Noise: my (multiple sets of) neighbors were constantly screaming at each other. The property manager sent out a notice not to bother him and instead deal with it yourself or call the police. The walls and floors are thin. - Speaking of… See More>

      I lived there for a year, and it was the worst place ever!!! From the day I did my walk thru til the day I moved out, nothing on my list.of repairs was ever done!!! My family and our pets all had health issues while we lives there. Since moving out we are all feeling much better!!! I believe it was due to the black mold that was growing in the basement and baths. There is alot of drug dealing in the complex as well! The property manager is lazy and has no clue on what he is doing....DON'T DO IT....talk to current residents before you rent, they will tell you..it's horrible!

        Resident 2014 - 2015


        I lived here between 2014 and 2015 and it was a miserable experience. Within our first two weeks, the landlord died and the new landlord had no experience. When we moved in, our dishwasher and one of the ceiling fans was broken. Over the course of a year, they were never repaired. We had a loud, drunk neighbor below us who would blare loud music at all hours of the day and night (and the walls are THIN). Whenever we would bring this up to the landlord, he basically told us it was our problem...even though it said clearly in the lease that loud music wouldn't be tolerated. The landlord was hardly ever around (and there's no office or other staff) and there was only an emergency number to get in touch with him. So most of the time if we had a problem or question we had to figure it out ourselves. The grounds became really run down and overgrown with weeds by the time we left. No one kept the hallways and building entrances clean, they were always dirty and messy. We had a couple nice neighbors, but overall the neighborhood is really sketchy. One of our elderly… See More>

          Apartments Raising Health Related Concerns

          Is there anyone who has lived in these apartments for 2 or more years noticed their health taking a turn for the worse from living in these apartments? Are you & your family having similar health issues since you have moved into your apartment here at York Village? What do you think is causing the similar health issues at York Village? Feel free to comment on this Issue!

            Nice place

            I have lived here for 8 yrs now. In 2007 a new management company bought York Village. In January of 2009 they fired the old manager and a new manager took over. This place is 1000 times better now. The manager is fair and decent & friendly. Things get fixed right a way. If they can't fix it they call someone who can. I read all the other reviews and wonder why those people are unhappy with this place. This is a business and if you don't pay your rent they should evict you. I know a lot of the people who live here and we all love it. It is quiet and safe. The other people that live here are nice and pleasent. There used to be alot of problems here but when the new management took over they got rid of all the rif-raf. It sounds like some of them wrote bad reviews. You just need to come here and talk to anyone that lives here, or the manager and you will find out for yourself.

              trailer park

              this place might as well be a trailer park. Old neighbors sit outside and have nothing better to do than talk about everyone all day. The couple that run the place are morons. I have no idea how they continue to run the place. If you like crack heads and poor people move in.

                It would be the worst thing you ever did

                Now that new Management has taken over the facilities the place is far worse then ever before. I have lived her for going on 7 years now. The maintenence sucks horribly , when the new landlord took over they started violating people for rediculous reasons, filing for eviction on the 6th of the month, running backround checks on tenants that have lived in the complex for years. Then when they run the backround check whether you have lived there for five or ten years if you have EVER committed a felony not only will they throw you out on christmas eve. But they also tell you that you are never welcome back to your home...with your kids. They are slowly getting everyone out that pays 6-800$. Then they remodle "paint" and throw in some shiny appliances and charge almost 1000$. All the places are bug infested. You can never..ever get things repaired and if you do it will be because he called a plumber or electrician and charged it all to your rent of the present month. Don't be late on your rent either 10% late charge..but they file immediatly and that is another 130$ and if you dont pay… See More>

                  Horrible maintenance

                  I lived in this place for 3 years and the whole time i was there my mom complained about my window seal in my bedroom being broken, they never fixed it. Since they never fixed it my room grew mold all over the window up the wall it was horrible. Our garbage disposal and dishwasher keep breaking they NEVER ever fixed it my dad had to. Every time the garbage disposal would break it came up in the shower for some odd reason. They were always drunk and VERY LAZY!!! Also in the basement the water would back up and we could smell it in our apartment!!! Oh and on top of that someone in our building keep putting there trash on the lading in the building, and we keep telling them but they never did anything, so the trash started to smell up the building and started growing things.

                    Just left the dump

                    The manager and maintance man are both rude and lazy people who only repair things at the slowest speed there is and try to never have to do anything. The owners should really check into the situation and make the needed changes.

                        Definately a last resort

                        I lived in one these apartments for 6 months. It is not something I would recomend. It was the type of place that never made you feel...safe.

                          If all else fails...

                          My wife and I have actually lived here on two seperate occasions. In 1999, we lived in a 2 BR Townhouse and currently we are living in a 2 BR apartment. Parking is a bit of a problem and one of our cars has been hit due to the small parking spaces. The neighborhood children are unsupervised and have taken to bullying the smaller children. Repairs to the apartments and townhouses are incredibly slow, sometimes taking six months. The location is nice enough though. If you have looked everywhere else, I would not rule this complex out.
