WORST PLACE I EVER LIVED

I have lived at Lafayette for two yrs. In my time here I have had so many negative experiences here that I would not recommend this place to my enemies. When I first moved in it took about a month and a half to even get my keys b/c they were in the middle of switching managment. When I finally did get them, I walked into a unit with filthy brown carpet that they tried to pass off as clean. I had to fight them tooth and nail to get them to change it and still ended up with two-toned carpet. People often would walk by my window (ground level) and bang on it. One of these instances it was my 7yr old sons window, and it scared the crap out of him. Maintenance, as nice as they are, take forever to fix things and when they do, its still not fixed. I have closet doors that have been broken for a little over a yr now, a tub that does not drain, clogged by my neighbors hair. A dishwasher that leaks everytime you run it, my patio has flooded twice, they had to fix the AC twice, and the front door to the building has never locked. They advertised "secured access". Thank God I didnt chose this property based on that b/c I was trying to avoid a stalker. He could just walk right in and knock on my door, like the Jehovas Witness do. Bright and early on a Saturday. I have not been in one building where the door locks, except the one where the model unit is. My intercom in my apt doesn't even work. I have been battling bugs and insects from DAY ONE! Not your common roaches or ants. Those big black water bugs that I discovered were coming in from under the wall and crickets. Soon as I thought my insect troubles were over, little red bumps starred appearing on my arms, legs, and stomach. BED BUGS!!!! GROSS!!! I thought this issue was only isolated to me but then discovered that it was the WHOLE COMPLEX! At this point I have a really bad infestation and when I leave at the end of the month, my sofa set, my bed, and my sons bed, are all going in the TRASH! Money in the dumpster because it was new when I moved in. I had to threaten to call the Health Dept before speedy action was taken. In all fairness, I did not expect to be moving into Buckingham Palace when I chose Lafayette, but some of the issues I have had in my time here was just unacceptable. Government run properties does not have to equal TRIFLING!!! Oh, lets not forget the squirrells running around in my ventialtion system. Who needs a cat or a dog when you have self sufficent squirrells.
