There's a sinister element involved in the application process at Dominion Heights. The company forces applicants to pay $525 deposit online, now, (apparently this is new) along with a $33 fee per adult before the applicant knows if he or she will be approved. Other rental properties in the area require an application fee (only) of $25 online before requesting a deposit. Dominion Heights will then tell the applicant that he or she will need to wait two weeks or more to get his or her deposit of $525 back if the application is not approved. So they will hold on to the applicant's $525 for two weeks or more before returning the funds, which may be a hindrance for that person to move forward with another rental given the fact that that that person likely will need the money to move forward with another place. In my case, I had my bank stop payment. It's more than unreasonable and unfair to have to pay a $525 deposit upfront without knowing if you will be approved then have to wait until they decide to return the money. I guess the only upside to this experience is I was inadvertently reminded to stay alert to my credit report from the three credit reporting agencies and the fact that I was able to correct inaccuracies on them. I wasn't aware of the errors but was able to upload my "paid in full" receipts to Dominion Heights' website, as requested, but the woman there called me and said I was approved with the condition that I pay them another $525. They wanted double the deposit, even after I provided the requested corrections to the credit report. This seems a bit "extortioney" to me. They thought they found a desperate victim who was willing to pay any price to a greedy corporate operation. I told the woman who had been in contact with me from that company to cancel the application. I emailed her the "cancel application" and mentioned my thoughts about the process, as well as the fact that I had read some of the reviews from residents and prospective residents prior to going through the process and decided to see for myself and now I see. It seems that alerted them to the fact that consumers have rights if they decide to use them and can fight back using the same online process Dominion uses to siphon funds from the public because I started receiving a steady flow of emails from the company wanting me to give them a review. They want to know what I would write about them. While I move forward with my new rental, my review will live on for Dominion Heights. And that seems fair to me and more like a bit of power to the people rather than all power to a greedy (possibly corrupt) company.
These apartments are absolutely horrid. Dogs everywhere, cheap appliances, and counters. Snobby and rude employees. Un-educated women, who think they are better then you, operate the complex. The "grassy" areas are so swampy and full of dog poop, it's actually makes the apartments worse. Clouds of nats fly around the grassy areas, and things constantly break in the apartment. The refrigerator and stoves are from the 80s. The Granite counter tops are not level, so water accumulates towards the back, and it gets really moldy unless you constantly clean it down after dish washing. Parking is horrible... there are not enough spaces for your second car. If you rent a garage at an extra cost, then you are not allowed to park under any covered parking as well. Noisy college kids are out at night, but during the day it's pretty quiet. Overall, if anyone is considering renting here, I would definitely encourage you to look a little deeper into what you are actually getting for the price. The staff is sneaky, and the girls have a bubbly personality. They blow off questions in a nice passive aggressive way. "I don't know how much that will cost to fix, but when you move out, we actually don't even notice things like that." or "that's no big deal, we'll get it fixed... " and you are left to only think.... What the hell??? then you get screwed over.
the maintenance is just plain stupid. You'd be better off just doing it yourself, or hiring any joe blow off the corner to come take a look at your problem. Either way, you'd be getting the same quality of education/service from maintenance. I could go on forever about this horrible place, but we are all adults, and make the decisions to move in. I just wish I would have looked a little deeper into what I was actually getting, rather then seeing what seems to be an alright place, and finding out it's pure hell.
