Perhaps this is a good sign, as klingbeil Capital Management has purchased the property known as Camden Village. I come from out of area (not a Fremont native) and have no school-aged children, but quite a few people where I am do have children, so maybe the school is good. Since the purchase of the property by Klingbell Capital management there have been new energy-efficient windows (dual pane) put in all units, occupied or not. Also, new more visually appealing, but still hollow-core doors have been installed and since they are cold to the touch I imagine they do not have the foam core that the newer model metal doors have.
The management team has not changed, and that is the biggest problem out here. They just don't care, and unless threating them with State Law on Renter's Right's, not much gets done. I know, as I have had to fight to get a new toliet, when one of the two (unit is a 1 and 1/2 bath) refused to flush. As I am versed in the law, and have the money to move, I could take that opportunity. That, combined with their problems with "Fly-by-night" tenants, (people who leave w/o paying that pesky old rent) and the level of vacancy in the complex, I would tell Klingbeil to have a sit-down with residents and find out the "real deal". I have lived here over a year now and the bricks that were missing (14 if I remember correctly) on an area where the children ride their bikes have recently been replaced, and as I said windows and doors now up to HUD standards. But the lush grounds are 1. Overwatered to the point of muddiness.
2. Overwhelmed by the amount of dead and dying trees, including the privets and all of the silver birches.
3. Have had live wires or exposed wiring where it is a hazard to children and the infirm, not to mention the stupid.
On my way back from dropping at the office a misdirected package, I, myself saw a set of red, green, yellow, and black wires lying exposed on the muddy sidewalk apparently awaiting a new outdoor lamp. That, in and of itself documents management's inablity to maintain the property in an appropriate manner. If City Government here even had a renter's board it would have been reported there, but, alas, there is none. Only little old me and my knowledge of the law, and of my rights. And Ashley, if you are reading this, get maintanance to FINISH THE JOB OF INSTALLING THE BLINDS CORRECTLY OR I WILL ONCE AGAIN GO OVER YOUR HEAD.
Don't move here. If it were not for my knee injury and being on the second floor I would move right now. But, alas, I will have to re-lease. But at least I have the ability to leave and if more of the tenants had any knowledge of the law or backbone, this place's management would be changed. Oh, and get some training for your maintance people and actually check to see if the security people ever are on property. They are not. And don't automatically deduct $139.00 for cleaning the carpet of a vacated unit before inspecting same. This was done to me, and believe me the carpet was cleaner when we moved out than when we moved in, and that was as Carla said the previous cleaners did a poor or no job and just sent in an invoice. I was told that the carpet in the unit I moved up to (they raised the rent on ground floor units)had been cleaned, and when I asked, they said,"Oh I know it has been cleaned, I have an invoice". Hey, how about I send you an invoice and you don't check my work. Once again management's inablity to act as a reasonable prudent person would act, ie, check the carpet after cleaning and drying occured, has made sure that this property will never be what it could be. Well, enough now, it is time to have the subwoofer war again with my downstairs neighbors. I do feel sorry for my neighbors to the sides, both upstairs and down, but if you want to play your subwoofer on full at 11:00 at night, SO CAN I. TTFN (TA TA FOR NOW)
