I don’t think I can fully describe my disgust for this place. I have lived here since the end of August 2014 and it is now the end of October 2014. This place is absolutely horrid. For south Overland Park, this complex should be ashamed. There are bugs, especially spiders, everywhere. I kill at least three a day. There are holes in the walls. The windows leak and are not sealed properly. They just paint over anything they don’t want to fix. When I first moved in, I was shocked by the condition of my apartment. It was never cleaned. There were dead maggots in the drawers in the kitchen and mildew in the bathtub. Some of the door frames and cabinets look like they were chewed on. The paint is bubbled in several places and there was a hole near the front door that I’m sure is how the bugs get in. Parts of the ceiling look like there is water damage. The maintenance tech at the time did come over to fix some things. He painted over what he could and he caulked the bottom of the windows. I’m not a window installer or anything, but I’m thinking leaks in the windows need a little more attention than a little caulk. Maybe I’m wrong. I’m pretty sure the water heater leaks currently or has leaked as well. He vacuumed around it and then spray painted the shelf it sits on. The district manager, Kristen, offered me $150 concession for my trouble. I’m sorry, but the maggots alone weren’t worth $150, let alone all the rest of the bugs, the dirt, and someone else’s urine I had to clean. I wanted to move. So, I didn’t accept what she thought was appropriate compensation. I thought it was a joke. Recently, I haven’t been feeling well. I knew there was mold growing in the bathroom. I figured it wouldn’t do any good to say anything because they would deny it. One day, I come home to a mushroom growing in my bathroom. DISGUSTING. The new manager, James, came over. He informed me that it happens frequently and that it was my fault for having a shampoo bottle at the edge of the tub. Repeatedly, he told me it was my fault and that they would replace the small area of the wood near the tub. Well, the new maintenance tech came in and proceeded to tear out the entire bottom portion of the wall in the bathroom because it was full of mold. I know I didn’t cause that in the two months I’ve lived there. The tech tore out the moldy rotten wood with me standing there. Never told me to leave or wear a mask. He left the bathroom door open, didn’t seal it off with plastic or anything, and didn’t cover any of my furniture. If I had asthma or a child with asthma this would be detrimental.Today, I’m sick. Of course. From breathing in the disgust that is growing in that place. I’m sure it’s in the air conditioning and above the ceiling in the bathroom. As that’s where the air conditioner is. I’m so afraid for my safety and the safety of my dog, which has to be in there all day long. At least I get to leave for work. I called the codes official for Overland Park to ask what the proper techniques for mold removal are. She called the apartment complex after I told her they tore it out without sealing it off or covering anything up. I was informed that they would be back in to clean the wall again (they didn’t clean it in the first place) and that they would seal it off. A little late I think since it has already been tore out and it’s in my furniture, clothing, carpet, and vents. I spoke with a neighbor who said that her windows leak as well and that she is disappointed that she moved in there. It’s very disappointing. They want to charge me $1,800 with a 60 day notice to move out or $3,600 to move out right away. It’s outrageous that I would have to pay that when they didn’t take the proper precautions in removing the mold. I would not recommend this place to anyone. At nearly $1,000 per month for “luxury” it’s not worth the health risks.
