Edgemont Terrace Apartments
Resident • 2003 - 2008 Not Recommended
Where to start? The apartments themselves are fairly nice and spacious with some really awesome views of beautiful (from a distance) downtown Reading. Very convenient for anyone working in downtown Reading who doesn't want to actually LIVE there. The problem I've had in the past 2 years or so is the distinct LACK of maintenance and frequent turnover of ONE overburdened maintenance person (who, as others have said, is also the office manager for 95 units). The responses of the owners in New Jersey is generally a shrug of the shoulders if you should dare to ask about getting something fixed. Out of water or water pressure? Just call your maintenance guy at 4 a.m. to let you use a bathroom in another building. Got a leak? What are we supposed to do? We're in New Jersey! The new LCL Edgemont ownership seems intent to pretty up the office area and ignore current tenants while raising rents significantly. My yearly rent increase tripled last year, my neighbor's quadrupled this year (he's gone...). Trash is a major problem, at least when it's out of sight of potential new tenants and there seems to be a minority of tenants who consider the grounds their own personal trash can. All in all, it's served me well. I might have recommended it a few years ago but there's no way I'd recommend Edgemont today. If you don't believe me, my place will hopefully be available in a few months...
