I've lived here for one month now. Because of covid-19 they I was told they weren't showing apartments prior to renting but we had to move so we signed the lease anyway. The rental agent knew it we were a couple with a baby on the way and first offered us the smallest apartment they have available (417 sq ft) with only a video. It was a very old apartment with stained counters and a pink bathroom. Luckily my husband called and asked to see it before the actual move in date and a different rental agent said they WERE doing showings, only they were self guided and gave us other apartment options. Some apartments here are brand new, and same haven't been renovated in decades, some have been smoked in and some haven't so be wary. They also have a clause in their extremely long and formal lease that says you have to give them several months notice before you move, even after the lease ends. My lawyer has advised me they can't legally enforce this. We selected a different apartment that had been renovated and everything was fine until a week after moving in when there started being a loud vibrational humming that lasted all night. Turns out it's the upstairs neighbors heating unit making my bedroom walls vibrate and at this point the leasing office and maintenance are not responding to my complaints that I can't sleep 2/7 nights every week. I'm considering moving my bed into the living room to escape it even though the floors are so old that my neighbors every footsteps (this is not their fault- it's the building) can be heard like this is a farm house from 1800. The final straw with this place came this morning when they towed my car. There are parking stickers they give you at move in and I had it affixed to my window but had my car detailed yesterday and got it back around 9pm, after the office was closed. I intended to call them today to get a new one and when I went out to my car it was gone and they said it was my responsibility to have the sticker so I'm now out the $200 to get my car back despite the fact there was no way to get a new sticker between the time I got home and the time it was towed. This is a very expensive place to live considering the actual apartments. There is also an amenity fee that is per person about 1/3 of a months rent cost that covers internet, gym/pool/ laundry access and a bus pass. The internet cuts out so often I had to switch my data plan to unlimited so we can work from home via the internet, they have the pool closed (but issue no discounts because they say it's not their decision) and the bus pass is very modified and only runs from the university to Vairo, not on any other routes. This was overall a very bad decision to get an apartment here and if I could change my mind still I would.
