If you're considering living here, do yourself a favor and seek alternatives for a myriad of reasons. See below:
- Poor Management
a. We moved out legally, and in writing, with a paper trail to all management (Melissa, Matt, and Eve) which should've resulted in a $2,000 agreed upon move-out fee. Instead, they tacked on an additional $1,457 ($3,457 total) for trying to say we didn't provide "sufficient notice". Numerous emails were sent (with no response), and in-person meetings were had with the understanding of our official move-out date. Mind you, we moved out to save money because my girlfriend's Father went into cardiac arrest and was hospitalized in a coma, and hospital bills were mounting. This was an extremely difficult and stressful time for us.
Despite this, they had the nerve to tack on more money, which is both immoral and unjust. Nothing matters to them except the bottom dollar and it's absolutely disgusting.
b. Management tried telling us we were not approved for the apartment (before we signed) based on credit, but my credit is 700+ and I make over 50k, far above the minimum for the apartment. In turn, they charged us *MORE* than the apartment's listing price because we were deemed "unqualified". In addition, they also charged us an application fee *TWICE* within a week because we had to "re-apply to be approved". When I contacted On-Site Rental Relations for my Rental Report, they told me (on the phone in front of management) that I should've been approved. Deceitfulness and lies to try and make more money.
- Too Expensive
a. We paid $1,052 for our apartment, PLUS utilities (trash/sewage/water etc) they conveniently leave out of the price. In addition, with NatGrid and WiFi our bill was close to $1300 a month -- far too expensive in comparison to other apartments. You have the option to pay online, but there's an additional "convenience fee" they charge to do this (surprise, surprise).
Avoid at all costs.
