Having read the past reviews, many of which are less than favorable, I decided to chime in. Whenever one lives in an apartment, it is easy to find flaws. This is especially true once you have moved from your own home. It appears that management does indeed try to keep its' residents happy. Yes, there has been turnover, but that is the case with other properties at which we have lived. Maintenance is very good and they are out and about daily. The property is very nicely maintained and the appearance is excellent. The apartments are large and we believe that most have been updated. Last year, new roofs were installed and the buildings were repainted. Our lease recently came up for review, so we looked at other properties. There are several that could be had for less money, but the locations, layouts, safety, appearance, and upkeep did not seem to match Heritage. We did notice that some of the parting residents were hit with carpet replacement fees after having moved out. We do not agree with this policy as carpets do experience wear and tear over the years. This should be an expense absorbed by the owners unless, of course, there appears to be deliberate misuse. There is also the ability to use the neighboring Lakeside pool and tennis. We are also able to use the walking path around the lake which is beautiful. They are in an upscale community. The pool at Heritage is small but very attractive and well-maintained. The best feature for us is the huge attached garage with plenty of space for storage. There is nothing more disconcerting than to have to carry groceries, and sometimes larger items, from a "community garage" to one's apartment. Parking on the property other than in one's own garage is sparse. If you have guests, it it oftentimes difficult for them to find a parking spot. When renting an apartment (and we have been in others), one must agree to "take the bad with the good". In the case of Heritage, there are a few minor flaws, but the good certainly outweighs the bad. For now, we will be staying.
