UNFORTUNATELY, MY FAMILY AND I CHOOSE TO MOVE TO `THE PLANTATIONS AT HAYWOOD´ APARTMENT COMPLEX. WE WENT TO THE MANAGEMENT OFFICE, FILLED OUT THE NECCESSARY PAPERWORK AND WAS THEN AFFORDED THE OPPORTUNITY TO TOUR THE `MODEL´. WE WERE TOLD BY THE MANAGTEMENT STAFF THAT OUR APARTMENT WILL BE IDENTICAL TO THE MODEL WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE MANTEL ABOVE THE FIREPLACE. WE WERE EVEN TOLD THAT WE WOULD HAVE A FIREPLACE IN OUR APARTMENT AS A SPECIAL OFFER [THAT WE FOUND WAS NOT TRUE]. WE PRO-RATED OUR RENT SO THAT WE COULD MOVE INTO OUR NEW APARTMENT WITH A SMOOTH TRANSITION. VERY EXCITED ABOUT BECOMING PART OF THE PLANTATIONS AT HAYWOOD COMMUNITY, I HAD ALL OF OUR UTILITIES TRANSFERRED TO OUR ASSIGNED APARTMENT AND THEN ON THE DAY WE WERE TO BEGIN MOVING IN, I OPENED THE DOOR TO OUR ASSIGNED APARTMENT AND FELT LIKE SOMEONE HAD JUST HIT ME RIGHT IN THE FACE; THE TILE WAS TORN, THE CARPET WAS STAIN IN URINE, THE BLINDS WERE OF A VARIETY OF COLORS, THE PAINT WAS CHIPPING THROUGHOUT THE APARTMENT, THE ELECTRICITY WORKED IN PART OF THE APARTMENT WHILE THE OTHER PORTIONS DID NOT WORK. THE LIGHT SWITCH COVERS IN A VARIETY OF ROOMS HAD JUST ONE SCREW ON THE COVER RATHER THAN TWO; THE SCREWS DID NOT EVEN GO WITH THE LIGHT SWITCH COVERS. THE PAINT ON THE `FRENCH DOORS´ WAS PAINTED WHILE YOU COULD DISTINCTIVELY SEE THE OLD PAINT UNDERNEATH [SLOOPY JOB], THE CABINETS WERE AWFUL IN APPEARANCE, WITH MANY MORE DISCREPANCIES TO NOTE. WHEN THE MANAGEMENT WAS APPROACHED AND HAD SIGNED OFF ON THE INVENTORY, I WAS TOLD BY THE ASSISTANT MANAGER "ITS NOT MY FAULT". WELL WHOSE FAULT IS IT? THEY BEGAN TO EXPLAIN THAT THE CORPORATE OFFICE ORDERED 120 APARTMENTS BE `TURNED´ IN TWO MONTHS AND THAT WAS WHY THE APARTMENT LOOKED IN THE MANNER THAT IT DID AND APOLIGIZED TO US. I THEN HAD TO CHANGE BACK ALL OF THE UTILITIES WHICH YOU CAN IMAGINE THAT EXPERIENCE IN ITSELF AND THEN GO SEARCHING FOR ANOTHER APARTMENT ELSEWHERE. I WAS REFUSED WHEN ASKED FOR THE TELEPHONE NUMBER TO THE CORPORATE OFFICE OF THE SIMPSON MANAGEMENT COMPANY AS I WAS INFORMED THAT I WOULD HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE REGIONAL MANAGER. WELL THE REGIONAL MANAGERS OFFICE IS ON THE PROPERTY OF `THE PLANTATIONS AT HAYWOOD´AND PROVIDES YOU WITH THE LUXURY OF `VOICE MAIL´ WHEN YOU CALL. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS APARTMENT COMMUNITY TO ANYONE. THE CHANGE IN THE APARTMENT COMPLEX NAME FROM `HAYWOOD CROSSING & STATION´ TOO `THE PLANTATIONS AT HAYWOOD´ WAS NOT EVEN LISTED ON THE APARTMENT RATING SYSTEM UNTIL I REGISTERED THE COMPLEX MYSELF. A CHANGE IN THE NAME AND THE SAYING `WE ARE UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT´ IS NO MORE THAN AN ADDITION COVER FOR THIS UNACCEPTABLE LIVING CONDITION WHICH THEY CONTRACT UNDER THE PRETEXT THAT YOUR APARTMENT WILL LOOK LIKE THE MODEL. IF YOU DESIRE TO LIVE AT `THE PLANTATIONS AT HAYWOOD´ MAKE THEM SHOW YOU THE EXACT APARTMENT YOU WILL BE MOVING INTO. IF THEY REFUSE, DON´T TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER BECAUSE THEY WILL TELL YOU THAT IT IS NOT CUSTOMARY TO SHOW AN APARTMENT THAT IS BEING `TURNED´. THE APARTMENT COMMUNITIES IN THIS GREAT COUNTY, IF THEY CARE ABOUT THERE RESIDENTS RATHER THAN THEIR OCCUPANCY PERCENTAGE, WILL SHOW YOU THE EXACT APARTMENT YOU WILL BE LIVING IN. PLEASE DON´T MAKE THE MISTAKE I MADE AND BELIEVE THAT CONING BUBBLEY APPROACH YOU WILL EXPERIENCE WHEN YOU WALK INTO THE LEASING OFFICE.
