  • Caveat Emptor

    Be careful, most of what they tell you to get into your parent's bank account is untrue. They ask you to give them $100 to hold the apartment for 7 days at which time you are to sign a contract and pick a move in date. This, again, is UNTRUE! Instead they start charging you the day BEFORE the meeting date as opposed to the move in date, and the Manager, [name removed], tries to go through the contract without allowing the tenant to read it. He charged us a "pro-rated" rent for 10 days that my mom would not even be moving in, he makes verbal promises which the Contract states otherwise, like, rent being due on the first, but promises that they won't take it until the 5th, while every time the rent is not paid you are charged a late fee and risk being evicted after 3 months and $75 per month in late fees. They tell you the VA will pay for part of the payments, when the VA states they won't. That is why they want you to pay them and you collect from SS and VA. I'm sorry I met these people.

  • My mom is settling in nice. Everyone has been super friendly and helpful. Her only complaint is the 4:15 dinner.
