Indianapolis Property Managers Reviews
When you move in, you are required to walk through the apartment and write a list of every detail in the apartment that isn't in tip-top shape to avoid losing your deposit when you choose to leave - makes sense. I would have thought that once I handed you a laundry list of problems with my apartment, at some point there would be someone who came to fix these issues - seeing that I was a brand new tenant - this however, was not the case. I still have broken light fixtures in my kitchen and the cealing in my bathroom leaks from time to time when the guy above me decides to take a shower (he's flooded his bathtub one too many times - he's a heavy drinker) luckily its falling into the tub as opposed to the floor. The washer and dryer facilities function at a 4 out of 10 on the best day ever - Honestly, if they were free, I would probably still go elsewhere. I'm sure I left a few things out, but thats to be expected with any lengthy list.
The straw that broke the camels back was recent. I was sitting on my couch watching the football game when I began to hear water flowing onto the ground in my kitchen - not dripping - flowing. Seeing as I live alone and was fully aware that I wasn't running any water, you can imagine my surprise when I see that my kitchen sink is completely full to the point that it is steadily overflowing onto the kitchen floor. In my shock, I found the plug and tried to stop the water, but with the water pressure coming up rather than pressing down, the drain plug only worked if I had my arm submerged in a foot and a half of backed up sewer water. I had to sacrifice a few moments of water droppage while scrambling to find my phone to call the maintenance man. The maintenance man was able to contact a plumber and I only had to stand in my kitchen hunched over the sink with my arm in the sink and standing in 3 inches of water - for about 2 hours.
Once the plumber had arrived, he was able to get everything under control which I was very happy about. However, during the process, he pointed out the plumbing issue that caused basically everything. He was able to see that there was a pressure valve (which are never meant to be horizontal) that had been used to replace the usual down pipe, that was coming out of my wall horizontally. Not only is the plumbing outdated, but its also not built to meet code... Needless to say, the same faulty equipment that has already failed, was installed yet again.
As I mentioned before, I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for. However, my understanding was that I was paying for a roof over my head (preferably not leaking) and running water (preferably running in the proper direction) - both of which have struggled in their own ability to function properly. I'd like to be reminded again of what a property management company does if not properly manage my property?
All in all - I want this review to reflect
I'd say the living space is markedly less than 2,500 square feet. We left this house completely in order, and I dare say clean, and ready for another occupant. We were prepared to pay, at the most, $200. More likely $100 to $150, and we would expect it to be absolutely immaculate after that.
