I wouldn't advise anybody to rent with them. They took my money for an application that they didn't even run. ALL the appliances are old and out of date. The people in the office give false information. The Manager Laura & Leslie, the asst. manager are not very polite. They misinformed me of information about the apartments. Then the property manager was very rude. I don't know if its because all the people there have passed their prime, or just really old, but this Apartment complex is not worthy of any tenants. I am referring to woodchase apts. They are terrible. The only thing good that you are getting from the apartments is the area. Save yourself and a year of being unhappy and go to a different coporation. They only respect you up until you sign on the dotted line. Afterwards they don't really care. So be careful. Please. They don't have your best interest at heart. I wish I didn't have to give them any star at all, but 1 is the lowest rating I can give them although they deserve more worse then that.

I have been a resident with Ridgeway Terrace for a little over a year. This was ""suppose"" to be a way to save some money in preparation to purchase a house. Boy was I wrong! Sunshine is a company that lures tenants in on a no deposit and free gift cards. They charge for everything! I just recently moved and I received a bill for $1600 of damages. I mean normal wear and tear of an apartment...I was chared for carpet, walls, EVERYTHING! I am now confused b/c I thought that normal wear and tear of an apartment is expected. Before a new tenant moves in an apartment the apartment has to be througly cleaned, painted, and carpet shampooed. That is ""normal"" wear and tear! The thing is Sunshine need to get some money from you b/c they get no deposit from you so therefore they have to make up the difference in the end! Very scandolous and unethical! Please DO NOT RENT from SUNSHINE! They have their own personal lawyers and they do this on a daily basis. Its a way they strong arm their tenants and scam them out of money inorder to make money. I hate that company's like this still exist. I have filed a BBB complaint b/c I feel that this matter needs to be investigated. I suggest that all tenants and former tenants file a complaint with BBB B/C Sunshine practices are just scandolous! You live and you learn. PS to all living at Sunshine make sure you take pictures of the apartment when you leave and make sure you do a notice to vacate and keep up with your copy!!!!!!! Try your best to move as soon as your lease is up! STAY AWAY FROM SUNSHINE CORPORATION!

After fulfilling a 1 year lease with Sunshine, I went month to month for 9 months, as I was in the process of purchasing/closing on a house. I turned in my required 30 day notice to the corporate officice in May 2010, as I planned to vacate by the end of June 2010. Two months later (August 2010), I received a letter at my new home stating that I owed for July 2010 rent and a late fee due to my negligence of not turning in a notice! What!!! So, as ""stiff"" as Sunshine is about their rules, I could have gone for nearly 2 whole months without paying rent before being notified?? I seriously doubt that! Sounds to me like another money-hungry plot to make some extra cash for the company! Not to mention that a final walk-through and inspection was scheduled and conducted on the last day of June 2010. If I truly wanted to skip out on rent, why would I turn in my keys, give a forwarding address (in my notice, might I add) and schedule a final walk-through? RUN RUN AS FAST YOU CAN from this morally piss-poor company!!

I've been at the Riverdale Apts for going on 3 years. This was my first apt, so I can say its not the best but its ok.
I've had a few run in's.....the maintenance guy left my back door open before and I didnt know till 3 days later due to never using it at the time. In the past and still sometimes I've had a major problem with spiders, and ants, and rollie pollies in the bathroom. When it rains bad the back door carpet gets flooded, and I cant put carpet powder by the back door due to this or it will leave white residue.
I wish they would have more of a concern for well paying customers. For 2 years straight I was NEVER late on my rent, now I'm going through some hard times, and they will not try to help me at least once as far as paying some of my rent late past their 15 day notice. I've only spoken to the people at the front desk, no one further. But policy is policy, I cant argue that either. But I do know when I get on my feet Lord's will, I will be moving from there.
The maintenance guy usually comes on time, but most of the problems are reoccurring .
I would rate Riverdale an 8, due to bugs and cold customer service of the leasing office. This is my first apt so I'm sure to others they may be rated lower, depends on your standards.

I've rented from Sunshine for a while now. If you're considering renting from them, just don't do it. The only good thing they have is the location of their apartments. Everything else is a loss.
Their maintenance is horrible: They won't replace rotting wood, the tennis courts are completely abandoned, their lawn servicers completely skip large chunks and it doesn't get addressed, etc... Inside the apartment is just as bad: Garbage disposals are cheap and break easily, the wallpaper is completely overdue for replacement, the interior paint is done poorly and it shows, and the carpet is worn down. They will not replace or fix anything until it completely falls apart, and even then they will only address it when absolutely necessary.
As far as rent goes, Sunshine will absolutely do anything they can to make money, even if that means the renter gets the raw end of the deal. For example, even if you've been renting with them for years, if your rent goes 14 days overdue they will immediately turn it over to an attorney's office for collection. A $650 rent will blossom into a $1050 bill on the morning of the 15th day you're late. I understand it's within Sunshine's contractual rights to do that, but that doesn't make it morally right. To them, money is very much more important than the renter and they make that abundantly clear in their actions.

I have been with Sunshine for three years and have never been late with my rent. My son school bus was running late. I live in WoodChase Apartments and the bus didn't arrive until about 4:50. He attends County School and they don't release until 4pm. To make a long story short, I sped on the express way to Poplar (while talking on the phone to one of the ladies inside the office, informing them of my location). I made it to the building at 5pm. By the time I ran upstairs to the office it was 5:01pm. The lady closed the door and locked it in my face. There were other tenats inside being seen and she wouldn't let me inside. She said, ""it's late, drop it in the box."" A day later I recieved a letter in the mail with a balance of $75.50 due to late charges. Is this money hungry or what? I have been a great tenat to Sunshine Corporation. On that day I begin my search for new residence. Thanks be to God I found a house on the same day!

after 18 months of residency, I had 1 returned check due to loosing my job. Instead of noifying, they sent me a notice of eviction and atempted to suit aainest me. It ended up costing $1,100. to retain a apartment which the rent was only $595.00. 2 days later Sunshine (what a joke of a name) sent me a letter stating I had broken my lease and that now my rent would be $720.00....I have contacted ALL the news media and ferverantly that NO ONE has to endure the stress that I have.
Avoid Sunshine at all costs!!!!! They WILL get you in the end!

I can't beleive that people don't want to accept hard working individuals into their communities. I have been turned down due to credit. I guess because I don't have a lot of open accounts. I DON'T LIKE HAVING LOTS OF BILLS!!! True enough, I don't have perfect credit but, I'm not on government assistance either. Section 8 people can move in but, a person who works 50 hours a week and gets paid a generous paycheck can't. Seems like Sunshine is depending on government money like the Section 8 people to make money. Top dollar from the government....H#ll they're taking money out of my check to help pay welfare, Tenn-care, medicaid and all of the other bul@#%*^ that's being paid from my taxes. Sunshine should really change their names to Dark Clouds rental. Just as a word of advice.....YOU SUC@!!!!!! YOU'RE WELCOME FOR MY COMMENTS!
THIS COMPANY APPROVED ME FOR AN APARTMENT THEN TURNED ME DOWN ONE WEEK LATER .
I AM A WOMAN OF MY WORD AND IT IS LAW THAT THIS CANNOT BE DONE AND I AM NOT GOING TO PAY FOR THEIR MISTAKES. PLUS THE STOLE MY MONEY AND WOULDN'T GIVE IT BACK AND TOLD MED IT'S POLICY.

I can't believe a company like Sunshine Corporation is still allowed to do business with the public. My fiance is trying to move out of his apartment with them and he went to turn in his Notice of Vacate 4 days after the first of the month. They tell him there is nothing they can do and that he will have to pay the next month's rent because he didn't bring it to them on the 1st. He explains to them that we just bought a house and the first house note is due the next month and if there is anyway they can take his notice? Well the woman told him that they just got a new computer system and for a $150 money order made out to a person, not Sunshine, she could make it look like our notice came in early. At first I thought she was stealing money from the company, but it turns out the manager was in on it too! So my fiance says no, it's too shady, and he pays next month's rent.
I've also heard HORROR stories about what Sunshine charges you when you move out. If you considering renting from this company I highly suggest doing some research. If you look at any apartment reviews owned by Sunshine you will see all of the horrible things this company does.
