If I could rate this HOA less than 1 star I would...I have lived on this property in two different units over 4 years. The first unit is my parent's property, and the other is owned by my landlord who will remain unnamed. First. The rates are offensive and obscene. I wouldn't be surprised if we had the highest HOA fees in the entire city. For a $1,200 sq foot condo, you will pay over $500 a month (closer to $600), just to maintain the HOA. This does include utilities, but the state that they keep the property is disgusting. Trash everywhere, holes in the walls, rotting decks, insect issues...disgusting. Second. They have absolutely no care for any of the people who actually OWN the property. As far as they're concerned, if you aren't following their ridiculously strict policies (especially for the condition of the property), then you are subject to fees upon fees. My husband and I had our cars parked in our own spaces. His license plates expired, and they had a towing company tow his car out of our own covered parking spot! The towing company even thought it was ridiculous, but they told us they were being called EVERY SINGLE DAY to have this towed. They even implied that it should be towed illegally to the point of damaging the car! Third. The state of this place is terrible, and they've been raising the HOA fee every single year to "make improvements". What improvements? The buildings are in the same shoddy state they were in years ago. The parking lot "restoration" they did is deteriorating already. The landscaping looks terrible, plants overgrown or dying everywhere. They wanted to TEAR DOWN our covered parking! They don't know what the hell they're doing. We will be looking to get the hell out of here as soon as our lease is up. I have never, ever, worked with such offensive and obtuse people in my life. I am also going to see if we can contact the news stations about the state of this place so their corruption is exposed.Oh, I forgot to mention, your mail will never be safe here. We have more mail theft than any other place in the area. It's bad to the point that they can't even deliver packages to your mailbox anymore, you have to pick it up from the post office. What do they do to curb this? Oh yeah, nothing, because they don't care.
