Bellamy Park apartments are beautifully located and has decently maintained grounds, that’s about it. The website claims that each unit has been beautifully renovated. It has been our findings, after living in 3 separate units since June, 2014, that statement is a bold lie. Some do have newer appliances and linoleum, however this does not make up for the overwhelming pet and cigarette odors or carpet issues we encountered in each apartment. | The leasing agent here has a history of ignoring major issues in the units, according to both maintenance workers that I have met in our nearly 20 months here. Doors and sliders not shutting properly, stains and rips in old carpets, stains on the ceilings, peeling drywall repairs and mold that has been painted over many times… we were most recently moved into a unit with carpet that needed replacing; there are huge tears in the hallway that should have been dealt with prior to us moving in, which create a snagging risk. | I found this out when I got caught in it and took a nasty spill. | I requested a work order, after several months of no proposed solution since notifying the agent of the tears at move in. The agent did send the carpet vendor, whom immediately said he would need to replace the carpet in the entire unit. I had to again engage the agent, after not hearing from her for months after the assessment. Her excuse was that the vendor came by on her day off and she hadn’t heard from us. We had assumed she was working with the vendor to make things happen. | This lack of communication, as well as evidence within the units, leads me to assume that either the carpets are not cleaned and sanitized before move in or that the leasing agent completely ignores the carpet vendor’s assessments. I would not be making a stink of this if the agent had decided to not down talk me, and not lord over my head random niceties that she performed on our behalf, without notifying us. So, we’re stuck in a crumbling, unsafe unit because we could not afford the transfer fee to switch units, after she had done us a few favors (without documenting them with us). | Now, per the leasing agent, if we “really do want the carpet replaced”, I’ll need to move my furniture room to room… I have degenerative disk disease and a partner whom constantly works to keep us afloat; this is a daunting task for me and I would be left to deal with it on my own during the vendor’s hours. I used to think the leasing agent had the tenants in mind, but now I’m seeing that she’s sailing a sinking ship that she won’t make right. | Just another example of landlords cutting corners and their renters.
