DO NOT, I REPEAT DO NOT RENT HERE!!!!!!!!!!! WORST MISTAKE YOU COULD EVER MAKE WHEN LOOKING FOR SOMEWHERE TO RENT!!!!!!!!!\r
I've lived here for about 3 years now. When I moved in, everything was fine. Rent was moderate and we had a grace period until the 5th of every month to pay rent. The office staff was friendly and genuinely cared. Well, that all went to hell immediately after the new management company took over, Apartment Management Consultants LLC (AMC). The office staff has now almost completely changed. What used to be a welcome and friendly atmosphere, has turned into something you dread and try to avoid at all costs. People that act so smug and think they know what they're doing, and have no clue. Completely incompetent. The rent over the past 2 years has only gone up about $10.00 a month. Now that the new management company has taken over, my rent is now $30.00 a more in rent. Due to ridiculous processing fees, and various other ""fees."" I also rent a washer and dryer from the complex, as we do not have our own, and was now told that if I decide to get rid of them or move, I will be charged a $30.00 removal fee. Removal fee for what? To unplug it? Now I'm also told that renters insurance is mandatory, I can sign up for liability only insurance for another $10.00 a month or spend $15-$30 for upgraded renters insurance. Signing my lease, I was told, I am now required to give a 60 day notice when moving. 60 days, really!? So now we have to find a place 2 months in advance and hope they will hold it for 60 days for us? Rent is now due on the third of every month now. When I first rented here, it was the 5th of the month, which was perfect for me, as I only get paid on the 5th and the 20th of every month. I had no idea about any of these changes until I had signed my lease. Basically I was forced to sign a 10 or a 12 month lease, without rent going up even more, knowing it will now be extremely be difficult for me to pay a higher rent amount and on the 3rd every month. Come on, I don't know who this new management company is, but they have completely ruined the quality of life and relationships with their tenants in this complex, in just the short 3-6 months they have taken over. Save yourself the headache and stress and just find another place to move. We have searched all over the valley and there are more than plenty of other apartments for rent that a MUCH cheaper, and you won't have to deal with things being continually changed. I've rented for about 10 years now and have never come across something such as this. I will absolutely be moving out as soon as this lease is up, I will not waste another dime supporting a company such as this, and you shouldn't either.
