I've lived in five different apartment communities covering two countries and two different U.S. states. And by far, Fairbrook -- and more specifically the owning company Linden Colonial -- is the laziest management I have ever dealt with. NEVER did I think a group of individuals could be so incompetent. We were assured before moving in that all the concerns and problems we listed on a pre-move-in inspection sheet would be addressed. They did nothing. The apartments are crawling with insects. We throw away upwards of 40 insects everyday and the management has still failed to fix even one of the laundry-list of issues we directed them to do prior to moving in. It seems as though bi-weekly reminders aren't enough to get even the simplest jobs done. And when the maintenance people did show their lazy faces on the one occasion, they literally pounded the floor and walls with a hammer a couple of times and left without a word like it was an inconvenience rather than their job to be working with the tenants to uphold the basic necessities of the contractual agreement. The owners and management clearly lack even the most basic understanding of a contractual obligation and don't comprehend the two-way covenant of a landlord-tenant agreement. They also try to coerce tenants to enter into unlawful contractual agreements upon renting a unit in order to save themselves money. Altogether, while the apartments are shaded and spacious, the management neglects even the most basic understanding of how to operate a day-to-day landlord-tenant agreement. I have never witnessed a more incompetent and lazy staff in my entire life. The do-nothing personality is set from the very top and trickles down, by example, to the very lowest of the staff in the maintenance workers. Before you consider trying to rent here, you might want to check down the street to see if there's a nice-sized box in the Dumpster behind the Training Table. There are probably fewer insects back there anyway.
