There is poor management currently. There would be lots of problems by coming here. The community has a problem with roaches and bed bugs, and no one to clean up. There is no staff to sweep, mop, or clean the trash out.

Only if you are desperate!

My mother was one of the first tenants in Manchester Lakes building 2. In 2001 it was a wonderful place to live BUT not anymore. There has been a drip in my mother’s unit for over a year and it is still not fixed. When she complained, management told her if she didn’t like it she could move. They went months with only one elevator because of a leak in the laundry room. They shut down the laundry room on each floor except the first one for months until they got a part. They are fixed but there is still no hot water. The maintenance staff routinely quits so there Are weeks with no maintenance help. The furniture and carpet in the common areas are old and stained unless you live in Building 1, which seems to be, at least in the surface, better maintained. I would not recommend this complex to anyone with the current JRK management. It has been take over several times and each time it gets worse. I cannot wait to move her out of there!

Security is a major issue at this place. We have complained several times that the side entrance door does not lock and anyone can enter from the outside. So far, over one month's time and the problem has not been addressed. Residents deserve to feel secure and management should take this very seriously. There is also a very bad odor in the main lobby area, especially over the weekend. It seems that the trash shoot is not emptied from Friday to Monday, so the lobby smells all weekend long. Very nauseating when you enter the building.
