I really would like to rate WCPM ""not recommended,"" but I like Ada Wong, the assistant property manager, and my apartment's resident manager enough because they are professional and polite enough to increase the rating by just one star.\r
I have been renting an apartment for 5 years under WCPM that is falling apart, has repeated rodent infestations, and other overdue repairs. I have had to call the department of building inspection due to non-response of complaints about broken appliances, damage, etc. I have always been on time with the rent, but I was a few days (not months) late in paying my rent due to an unanticipated medical emergency, and once before because I was angry that a sawed-off hole in the ceiling, due to a plumbing leak, was not sealed up for over a month, creating some unwelcome visitors to our apartment -- insects! I was served with a 3-day notice both times, no exceptions per the main resident manager who was nameless on the notice. With my excellent payment history, and the headaches I have put up with with the numerous repairs, I feel this was unnecessary, and completely inconsiderate ethically. What do they expect with what type of dwelling we are paying for? If it were not for the high city rents, I would have moved out of this apartment a long time ago. Besides, I would miss the dealers outside, the broken car glass on the streets, stolen merchandise for sale, and the heroin addicts that line my urine-smelling entrance. If you could avoid them as your property manager, you should. God forbid YOU have some sort of medical emergency that made you a FEW days late on the rent!
Pros: Cheap rent, convenient location of building
Cons: Old, run-down building needing major repairs
