I am writing this review, so no one like me fell into this trap. I moved into 10915 Bluffside Dr apartments a.k.a Bluffside Terrace in early 2008 from East coast, since I have no rental history in CA I was asked to pay two months security deposit. Now problems in all levels start, the apartments have very little cleanliness, No security (multiple incidents of robbery, stabbing .etc.), no amenities (the pool is there is just name sake.). Management charges for everything water, bathroom water, trash etc. More over they will never respond to any of your queries, if not the Resident Manager who is little bit helpful the apartments are literally ****. This is not end of the story. I decided to vacate after residing more than 18 months, gave proper notice, the Resident Manager (RM) inspected the apartment and said apartment is GOOD in conditions and I can vacate and management might deduct little amount towards cleaning. Since I have to move out urgently I believed RM and moved out, after a months’ time the management deducted 80% of my security deposit due to various ******** reasons and even threatened me that I am illegally staying in the apartment. Till now I am still fighting with them to get my security deposit. The problem is Management will never talk to you directly – they only talk to you thru RM and he has absolutely no authority on anything. It’s been like 9 months I still didn’t get my security deposit. I even came many of the past tenants lost big chunks of security deposits like me. Pls don’t move into the apartments and face same troubles I am facing.
How do you give proper notice with your "proper" lingo is beyond me?!?
