UPDATE: After I posted my review was posted things have improved here. There is a locking front door now, although it has large gaps on either side that let in a flood of cold air. Two noteworthy instances I have been impressed with Cooper Properties: 1. I locked myself out of my apartment, and the maintenance guy was there to let me in within 20 minutes (on a Saturday morning!) This was extremely helpful. 2. There was water leaking through the ceiling and again, a response was made very quickly- this time within the hour I think. The maintenance guy resolved the issue efficiently. So perhaps all of the inconvenience I experienced for the first two months of renting with Cooper Properties is not a reflection of the competency as a whole. I have never written a review before, but I was compelled to do so because of my extremely disappointing and frustrating experience with Garth/Cooper Properties so far. They are unorganized in a big way and not at all professional in demeanor. They have little concern for their tenants' comfort and safety (although they will assure you otherwise). They take FOREVER to address major maintenance issues. I mean FOREVER like months and months. Let me just give you a synopsis of my experience so far so that you know what you are in for when you sign a lease: -At the lease signing I was not given a copy of the lease -I was given the wrong keys to the building and my unit and thus was locked out when I tried to move in (maintenance guy brought me the key) -I was never given a key to the back door of the building and still cannot enter/exit from the back (where the parking is) -Garth was unable to tell me who the energy provider was for the property, and then he guessed that it was AEP -I call AEP to try to set up my electric bill and they have no record of the property -My electric is shut off because it is provided by the City of Columbus. (got that taken care of right away when I finally figured it out on my own) -The gas had been shut off by the maintenance guy. Only the gas company should ever do that. -I was told there would be central AC when I moved in and there wasn't. Two months in they decide to install it and one day without any warning I come home from work to a house literally covered in sawdust. All of my clothes, books, couch, bed...everything covered in sawdust. -There were no working lights in the hallways or the outside for the first three months. -Garth decided that the building needed a new door and that project has been half-finished for about two months. There is a large pile of trash from that project sitting as decor in the front yard.
