Worst apartments ive lived in yet!

This is by far one of the worst apartment I've lived in. I've had issues that need to be fixed however its been over a week. The trash facilities are constantly overflowing with garbage. The paths and walking areas are littered with garbage. I've had chairs stolen off my porch. There are roaches and ants everywhere. I've lived here for three months and really have nothing good to say about this place. Not worth the almost $1k I spend here a month... I just hope this new management can turn this place around. I would really like to see grass when I look outside.

    Scary

    i live here for 5 years and never really had any issues with the staff or maintenance. i guess whoever the new people that work in the office now just don't know what they are doing, very unprofessional and clueless. i have called in my ac 6 days ago and noone has even come out to look, i called back again 2 days ago and after being rudely told that it will be done today, still noone came out! not to mention, the crime has gotten so bad and nobody is doing anything about that either. please either bring back the old staff or get some people who know what they are supposed to be doing!

      Greatest place to live!!!!!

      I have lived here for 8 years now and have been treated very farely. The lady in the office is very atentive to all residents and takes care of all problems that are brought up to her. My ac has worked perfectly eversince I moved in. the maintenance workers are very nice and take care of the work in a very quick maner. I know they say theft is at a high level here but it only happens during broad daylight n after 12 midnight. so aslong as you get home around 6 n 9 you will be completely safe. rent is fair for the area tht its located in. the schools are close by n the schools themselfs are very prestigous schools. the guy who made the coment about the -------- is a complete ignorant -------. the people's legal status shouldnt be a concern, everyone speaks to each other and get to be very nice once you get to kno them.

        ok i guess

        If you like to play your music freaking loud like I and my neighbors complaining about live here because In all the movies the people call the cops for loud music, not here. If the wreck comes in and tries to take someones car the people here will fight will you to get the car back. about pets if you have one dont tell the apartments they won't find out even if the repair guy comes in and hears your dog barking at him, they dont snitch you out.

            this place SUCKS

            there is no parking. your visitors have ONE place along the back wall to park. No one told me this until one of my guests had their vehicle towed while visiting me. Over$125 to get car back. The fat ----- in the back office dont do anything but sit there on her fat --- and be a -----. You have to call multiple times to get a maintenance man, and when I complain their standard response is to blame the several day delay on too many A/C repair calls. If the A/C always needs repair and maintenance is busy how about HIRING more maintenance? There are a bunch of guys that drink beer right outside my apartment and no one says anything. There are about 4 adults and 10 kids living in the apartment below me. It is that way all over this place. If you call and leave a message for maintenance after hours you can be assured NO ONE will respond...call and check on your work order days later and they have no record of it. This has happened at least 3 times. The apartment is so old and moldy mushrooms grow out of the floor in the… See More>

              "Okay" for the price, but......

              I've lived in the La Mirada apts for almost 4 years now... had problems with AC almost every year, power is expensive because of it, and it takes the maintanence people 3 or 4 times of calling them to get them out here. Have had a few other problems with the grounds, but I've been safe here since parking on the inside of the complex instead of the north face now. On top of that, each time we go to renew our lease it constantly jumps every time, and seems that you would WANT to keep people in the apt by giving discounts to people who stick with them.... but then again, im not the management company

                Unsatisfactory

                I have found the place to be okay. I made a complaint and been treated unfairly ever since. The parking is horrible. I thought people were being exaggerating that they had to park across the street. But I see that was true. I was trying to get in touch with the office 2 weeks ago and they still have not called me back. The office staff are unconcerned about time because they go out on extended lunches. We waited for almost an hour for staff to come back. This should have been a clue not to move in. But you get what you pay for.

                  Unsatisfactory.

                  I would not reccommend this complex for anyone for numerous reasons. One of the main issues is the noise. The people who lived on both sides of me...played tejano music EARLY in the morning every single day and it sounded like they were throwing things at the walls until late late at night. SO MANY KIDS play outside....having screaming contests...kicking balls against the bricks...dragging things attached to their bikes. UGH the kids are not monitored by parents outside....I had almost run into kids just running around the parking lot...had to slam on my brakes because they do not look around...they just run. Loud music is played throughout the day while groups of -------- men just drink beer and stand around their trucks. The -------- men here STARE hardcore. I felt unsafe here. I cant even take out the trash without being stared at THE WHOLE WAY to the dumpster. Beer cans and bottles are left in the parking lot...kinda trashy. at least two cheap car alarms went off daily...even in the middle of the night. the parking situation is ridiculous. Because they didnt have enough parking for everyone....there are only two stickers allowed per lease. Well...when you have three families… See More>

                    drugs, crime, loud music, rude staff, illegal aliens, and sex offenders oh my!!

                    if you have any decency about yourself or your family, do not move here. first of all the fact that la mairada was formerly named something else should be a clue! the fact that they were formerly named but still managed by the same company CAPSTONE says alot. it is very expensive and time consuming to legally to change a property name. many illegals live here, and the management is aware of it. hell, half of the maintenace do not even speak english. the crime is like living in the projects, and the office staff speak in spanish about you if they feel you do not understand. they do their hair and make-up in the office bathroom, during office hours, and routinely leave their curling irons HOT n plugged up for someone to burn themselves. this is a bad place to live!!!

                      First of all, YOU ARE HEREBY WARNED! if you are a professional, do not move in here, if you like peace of mind, do not move here, if you do not like crime, illegals, drug dealers, riffraff do not move here. If apartments should be closed down to the public, this is one of them. You have kids kicking the electricity transformer box for no reason other that being stupid that turns the whole power of a block off. Robbery is in broad day light under your very nose. Even the workers there, tell you how they would dare not live there. I stayed there for 6 months and was able to get out of my lease due to safety issues. again YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!!

                        Just been here only 4 months and it's been okay.

                        I recently moved from out of town. I had to look on line and these reviews didn't help make my decision easy. I called spoke with the most professional leasing agent Ana.I came down a week after speaking with many leasing agents at different places. I remember all the things that was said about this place. I wanted to see things for my self I knew it couldn't be all that bad. I called on a saturday and i am glad i was able to speak with Ana again. I made an appointment with her. Out of all the places I had been she had my info since the 1st time I spoke to her. She showed me around the place and i was very impressed. I leased and i have been happy since. Ana helped me with making the move so easy. I have only been to the back office a few times and its not all that bad.

                          OMG this place is the rudest complex I have ever lived in. They have 2 offices - the leasing and then the back office. The leasing office they are nice but can t help you. The back office well you will be going through hell trying to talk to them . they hang up on you when your trying to get information , when you request something to be done it takes about a week and it still is not fixed cause the maintenance does only a half --- job. There are bugs everywhere and when you request a spray they only do it on Wed. and you have to be there. The electric bill are out of this world. there are cracks around the windows and doors that you can see the sun coming through and still they will not fix itAnd parking well you can forget about it.. there is no parking for any one who comes to visit you. The parking is always full to where you cant park and you live there. The pools are green and gross. Worst place to every live . Don't every live here. just look at the… See More>

                            I agree with all posted.

                            I visit my friend at La Mirada and she tells me the back office is still rude. Takes them days to fix things. The mainntenance man tell my friend that the work order was just recieved that day. The front office people are ok, except one day we brought a cousin to look at apartments and La Mirada was the most decent one in the neighborhood. The leasing office was open on saturday the lady was not very helpfull, she was wearing jeans and a small shirt you can see her gutt. What kind of people work for this apartments? They should dress mature with business attire. We agree with the comments posted, manamgement seems to look the other way.

                              First rent is okay....Second back office staff is rude....Third parking rules sucks.If you lost your car parking sticker you have to pay $75 and can't get a replace sticker. Have to park in the visitor parking far from your apartment. No exceptions at all says the staff. So it's your decisions if want to move in or not!!!!!

                                Horrible, scary

                                The bug problem is similiar to a science fiction movie. Management and staff claim ignorance about the bug problem. Thugs and unruly children are just some of the problems. Management seems to ignore complaints and appear to look the other way. There is no security, its scary to live here, you are taking your life into your own hands if you go out at night. The people here are scary, anyone can live here. The cheap rent is definitely not worth it, Its definitely a classic "low rent" place to live, so that means you will have low rent problems typical of low rent people. Definitely not a place for a family or anyone who is decent.

                                  Now known as La Mirada

                                  It sucks to live here! It might be cheap, but there's a reasons for it. 1. Out of the four seasons of the year its actually only quite during the winter. During the other times kids go running all around screaming and get nearly run over while backing out. Also I hope you like Tejano music because it seems these guys here think everybody else likes it too. 2. Parking sucks. It's ridiculously horrible. They only give out 2 stickers per apartment, no matter if you have a 1 or a 3 bedroom. So if you have more than two people with cars that live with you then good luck finding spots at night. If you risk parking in the non visitor area without a sticker, there's more than a 90% chance that by the time you go looking for your car, your friend is gonna be driving you to the impound lot. Be ready to cough up at least $220 to get your car out. 3. Water heaters are shared. There's not even a water heater in our apartment. Most likely the guys that lived below us have it so if your thinking about taking warm showers in the morning, then… See More>

The leasing office is open 7 days a week BUT the maintenance office opens weekdays only! PLUS, they rent to anybody, you will see all kind of weird people around. There is not security at all. is a pain to find a parking. Runaway from this property!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                      It's like living in a third world country.

                                      Daytime: hordes of unattended children that almost TRY to get caught under your car. Nearly unusable laundromat with far too few washers/dryers for the number of apartments they're supposed to service and only half of them, if that, function properly. Similar situation for the parking. Night time: Three incidents of vehicular break-in, all causing heavy damage, one assault, accidentally overseeing drug deals in the parking lots. All crime is made that much worse because of the unavailable parking, forcing residents to walk much too far just to get to their own homes. This is a terrible place. The cost of recovering from the crime easily offsets the relatively low rates.

                                        Crime is Dramatically Escalating (as of June 2007)

                                        Richardson Police have logged 123 incidents in the most recent 12 months. This includes a forcible rape in May. Otherwise, the incidents are mostly property crime, e.g, burglary, theft from motor vehicle, and vandalism. However there were 10 motor vehicle thefts reported from February 23 through June 9 this year (2007). Two recent (mid-May) incidents seem to indicate a significant escalation in the seriousness of the incidents. I refer to arrests for assault and a possession of cocaine with intent to distribute. These two incidents occurred virtually on my doorstep. The incidents are not included in the police report (possibly due to an unintentional fault in the way I formulated my request) I attempted to discuss possible remedial actions with Apartment Management. In a very brief meeting, Management's representative flatly and absolutely denied the existence of "any problem whatsoever." It was as if someone denied the existence of something as obvious as sun. It was an Alice-in-Wonderland experience. In my opinion, this is an unsafe environment for anyone living alone.

My car was broken into 5 times and nothing was done. The roaches are terrible and the thugs are everywhere. The apartment is drug in feasted. This is not a place for children.

Deep breath now.<br><br>There are pest problems, lots of thugs, people who listen to the radio WAY too loud in the parking lot. Lots of honking, Broken glass in the parking lots, cars broken into, etc. The parking lot is FAR too small for the number of apartments that it services. Frequently I would have to park as much as 7 apartment buildings away from mine because all the spots were full. The staff in the actual housing office are rude, holier than thou, will NOT bend the rules for any reason and the rules are frequently asinine, and incompetent. <br><br>The bottom floor air conditioner at my apartment did not work well AT ALL and I frequently complained, every time I did they would refill it's freon which would help for about a week before it blew hot air again. Finally I found out that it was leaking the freon into the walls of the apartment. I told the complex and what did they do about it? They refilled the freon... Stupid incompetent and… See More>

                                              ROACHES

                                              This place needs to be condemned. There are so many roaches it is unbelievable. SWARMING WITH ROACHES. ROACH EGGS, EVERY KIND OF ROACH YOU CAN THINK OF. I called the health inspector and they are like a little mafia in richardson. They are all "friends" and are probably getting kick-backs. You want to know what it's like waking up and there are roaches on your childrens beds? MOVE HERE! Disgusting. I have been in houses in the projects and the roaches weren't even this bad. My 2 year old was hospitalized with bacterial infection and the most likely cause was the roaches, which are known to carry DISEASES. I wouldnt be surprised if they end up with a class action lawsuit. Dallas County health inspectors need to get involved. Management awful. Asked over 15 times to have them take care of roach problem. NEVER DID. DO NOT RENT HERE.

                                                Not a good place

                                                We're moving, thankfully, but just some of the things that have happened to us and a neighbor since we've been there the past ~2 years:<br><br>1: Car broken into (3 separate cars, 4 incidents)<br>2: Car stolen<br>3: Marijuana found on porch<br><br>Different comments:<br>1: Not the greatest maintenance (we've called several times on a certain problem and although they've been out to fix it, it keeps coming back and is appearing to cause structural problems in the apartment-doors stick upstairs and then don't stick, as if the floor is shifting)<br>2: Not the greatest fixtures, painting, etc...the doors keep coming apart, there's holes in the floor upstairs under the carpet that have been there since we've moved in.<br><br>Then there is parking. They didn't use to tow for anything except expired registration/inspection. Then they decided they had a parking problem throughout the complex, when it appears it is only the area around the leasing office could have trouble with parking. I have been towed 2 times because we were given only 2 parking tags even though we are in a 3 bedroom townhouse style apartment, and there are 4 adults living there. It isn't logical. I… See More>

                                                  No way in HELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                                                  Worthing pointe is by far the worst place i have ever lived in. I was born on the outskirts of a ------ and i was more comfortrable there than where i am currently living with worthing pointe. The electric is all comercial meaning that the whole electric bill is divided equally between all residents. Management doesn't care about anything. The dumpsters are always overflowing. They even towed my car twice for the inspection sticker being 1 to 2 months overdue. Do not rent here!! I am not renewing the lease. Stay away!!!
