So just saying…this is probably the worst complex I have lived in. We have been here ~2.5 years; it started off quite nice but it had rapidly deteriorated during that time. When we moved it in it was pretty laid back. Kids playing in the “courts”, friendly neighbors, sane rules, etc.
Now it’s “nobody under 14 years old allowed outside without a parent” and all sorts of other bullshit. I love that they preach the whole “people who leave trash lying around will be fined” but never actually do anything about it. Same with the vehicles without a parking tag will be towed; in the 2.5 years I have lived here I have seen ONE vehicle towed and I don’t believe it had anything to do with parking in the wrong spot, I think they just needed work on their car.
It’s also awesome that the people who work in the office can’t even get the address straight. We live at 5477 Woodvale Court West, there is also a 5477 Woodvale Court. We get mail for them, they get mail for us, etc. However the PEOPLE THAT WORK IN THE OFFICE delivered a “late notice” to us at “west” that was meant for the “non west” address. Nice that they can’t even figure that out and we are supposed to?!?!
We are at the point of the neighbors being assholes also. One blasts this super obnoxious music at all hours and the other seems to be banging hammers against the walls randomly. I had bricks thrown at, and damage, our front door by a kid who’s mom leaves him in the “care” of his 14-year-old sister who doesn’t give a damn what he does. This is, best I can tell, common for him but does anyone care? Nope, not even the complex.
The air-conditioning doesn’t work worth a damn. Running it full blast all summer just results in a $300+ monthly electric bill and an apartment that is “cool” if it’s under 80 degrees F. Pretty sure that’s not “normal” as they claim.
Oh and the amount of dust is incredible, if you dust one day there is a good layer of dust on stuff the next day. I have 2 air purifiers running 24/7 and even at that the pre-filters look like a dryer filter after a few weeks. It’s insane how much crap is floating around here.
There is also a lot of mold in the basement and even in the kids room from leaking water that seems to be of little concern to them…cause you know…money first people second right?
Also lovely that we submitted our “Notice to vacate” or whatever the fuck they call it some 2 weeks ago and were supposed to receive a set of forms to fill out but haven’t seen a damn thing. I’m super tempted to not even give our new address (assuming we actually get something) and let them sort it out. After the shit we have been though and the small deposit it seems worth it to never hear from them again.
Final note, this will not be published until after we leave. That means that I’m writing it on 6/11 but it will be a few weeks until you see it. This is by design. Hopefully this will steer someone away from this worthless complex and save at least one person the headaches we have faced. So basically…FUCK YOU BLENDON SQUARE!!!
