Review of Lexington Hills – are they the nastiest apartments in Austin?
I came across this post for a woman trying to get out of his lease. You should go read it, but the short version goes something like this. Repeatedly, she had problems with plumbing that left her home office and closet flooded (Pictures here and here).
There was so much flooding that mushrooms started growing IN her apartment (Pictures here and here). She reports that hot water went out monthly (once for two days). And, of course, she had bugs (creepy looking ones)
People have a tendency to overstate things sometimes and I didn’t want to publish something that wasn’t true. Now I didn’t go into her apartment and I haven’t met her….but, I did check their reviews on apartmentratings.com and it seems they have had these problems for awhile.
Allow me to quote:
Water problems occur frequently. – June 2011
Haven’t had hot water in several months – November 2010
The water issue here is awful. – October 2009
If you like hot water..don’t live here – March 2006
There are more if you care to look. Unless there is a conspiracy that has been taking place for the last six years….I feel pretty confident saying that there are real problems at Lexington Hills. They might not actually be the nastiest…but I have to believe they would rank highly in the contest.
Good luck current residents. Potential residents – think real hard before you sign anything.
If you would like to look for another place to rent…I could recommend a site to help.
If the management cares to respond I will post it here.
UPDATE: They agreed to let her out of her lease after she presented a certified letter to them. Probably something to remember if you have problems with your landlord.
UPDATE 2: Wow. Turns out there is reason to believe that the maintenance teams stole items from her after she said she was moving. It is tough to sum up the story so check it out here
