Pros: Quick Maintenance (next business day for non-emergency), Fairly Safe (nothing is 100%) Cons: Over Priced, Does Not Enforce Noise Policy I lived in Adams Village for 3 years, which can be good or bad. My initial neighbors were quiet and easy to get along with. When a new neighbor moved next door, I found out the older apartments seem to have less noise proofing (older apartments are closer to road I think). Eventually the neighbor on the other side moved out also and was replaced with a more nosier neighbor. By Nosier I mean slamming doors (could hear neighbors from 2 doors down either direction), dogs barking, people running down stairs (another neighbor had same problem). Adams Village will send emails/phone calls to inform the noise violator of the complaint, but to the best of my knowledge have not enforced it with fines like they state. Apartments seem fairly safe, people take their dogs for walks and jog often. However some residents who left their cars unlocked had some items stolen, only happen once to my knowledge. Before signing my lease I was informed they would replace the carpet since the previous owner had cats (I’m allergic to cats), after signing the lease they went back on their word saying that wasn’t the case. They charge a non-refundable fee for having a pet plus $25/mo for each pet, but then don’t use the money to replace the carpet. Make sure to read the contract carefully and have anything they say added before signing. As for renewals, they are 1 year renewals and increase the monthly rate $15-20 each year I lived there when renewing (my new rate would have been $5 less then starting rate for new tenant). If you need to end lease early they have two options: 1) If you have 3+ months left they will do a buyout discount rate (I think was $500/month left) 2) They will lease apartments out in order of who moved out first and may get out of lease early 3) Stuck paying lease till contract is over. They will keep deposit till after lease ends and have 45 days to send refund. Adams Village worked for a while, but overpriced and heard was decent apartments for $100+ less from coworker. Hope this review helps and good luck searching.
I would recommend Horn Properties to everyone. One of the best places I've ever rented from. When I moved into my little one bedroom apartment, it was spotless and ready for me to move in. Any maintenance issues I had were handled in a efficient timely manner. Everyone in the office was really kind and helpful. There was one semester that I had lost my job and was having difficulty getting my rent in on time, they were very understanding and worked with me. When I moved out I felt like the cleaning list was a little intense, but when considering how clean my apartment was when I moved in it was really understandable, especially after I rented from a different property owner and was sorely disappointed that it was not as clean when I had moved into a horn properties apartment. By far the favorite company I have ever rented from!
