Rated 1 out of 5?by Misled and a Terrible Place to Live I have so many issue with this place I don't know where to start. I first viewed an open apartment 2 months before moving in. I was shown an apartment with a grass patio (which was a huge factor in me moving here). I was told that the apartment I was getting was "just like this one" except it was next door. I eventually signed the lease and was excited to move into the one next door. On the day of move in, I found out that I had actually gotten the apartment on a different floor with absolutely no grass! In fact, it was just all cement, practically looking into my neighbors apartments. I called to complain and was simply told "sorry, you should have looked at the ACTUAL apartment you were getting before you moved in." Yeah sure, I would have LOVED to do that, EXCEPT you told me that wasn't possible. On top of all that, she was really rude. Now, moving onto the apartment. I looked at this place two times with 2 different people. Both time I was LIED too. The first visit I asked her how bad the noise was here and how loud the train gets. She said "I actually live here in one of the apartments and it's not bad at all, you can't hear anything." Well, she was WRONG. The walls are paper thin and the wood underneath the carpet creaks at every step. I can literally hear my neighbors conversations next door at night and get woken up by the baby crying upstairs every morning. Also, there are train tracks right behind the tall trees. Some of these trains get really loud and can wake you up. Almost all the trains shake my house. During the second showing, the girl told me "sure, there are plenty of open underground parking spaces, you can always rent another one." This too was a big factor in me moving in. However when signing the lease, the manager told us no and that was not the case. YOU ARE ONLY ALLOWED ONE UNDERGROUND SPACE. I also asked both of them how the heat/ac/hot water works but none of them could answer my questions. The lease says the heat is paid but each unit has it's own fan. So who actually pays for the heat/ac? Does MacLaren decide to take over part of my electricity bill in the winter? And some units have a hot water tank that uses electricity. Who pays for that? The people who show apartments also supposedly get paid commission, so beware of that, they are likely inclined to tell you anything so you rent the place. Parking is also really bad. In my space in the garage, I have standing water around my car daily. Only a few spaces have this issue due to leaking walls in the basement. Outside, if you get home during a "peak" parking hour, you are in for a HIKE! We usually have to park in an adjacent lot because everything is so packed. We walk about half/block back to our place from the lot sometimes. The interior layout and materials are also low quality. When we moved in, our garbage disposal had a hole in it and leaked immeditely. Granted we had this fixed the second day we moved in, it should have not even have been an issue. Why would you rent out a place where water just leaks from the pipes without fixing it? Also the kitchen has no drawers, just cabinets. I have no absolutely no place to put silverware or other small object. Such a poor design! Make sure the place you look at has these options. As for the bathroom, my shower is a big disappointment. It's all plastic and leans to one side. The bathroom vanity was nice however. The last gripe I have about the apartment is that the entire apartment "caves in" towards the middle. I took a level to the floors and there is a slight degree of decline from the walls to the center of the floor. This happens with poor support underneath and years of use. You won't feel it walking, but you will see it when your TV leans forward and your coffeetable is on a lean, like mine! You get $300 a pop if you refer someone to lease from this place. I have already told 2 friends who viewed palces and wanted to move in, to look elsewhere. That tells you something. I would totally move out now if I could and would not likely stay next year. For the almost $1,000 I pay a month, I would expect better. June 19, 2013
