Don't rent here if you can help it on 11/27/2015
When you start seeing the dumpster full of unwanted carpet, bedding and mattress, you wonder why. Then later on you find out why you are itching on your arms, by that time is way too late. At first you thought maybe I had a mosquito bite, but then you start seeing other spots on you body starts to pop up. You thought to yourself, hey maybe I am having an allergic reaction. Until one day you found tiny little red spot crawling on your arm, you went ahead and squashes it with your finger, and drag
a faint streak of blood across your arm. You got bed bug.
Apartment manager said, "well you could have gotten it from work or from someone else." Like, really? Is a solid argument, but my biggest problem is that she, the apartment manager, thinks her tenants are stupid. Is almost like, nah he wont be able to figure it out, that the whole apartment is infested, nah, hes too stupid to make the correlation that there are dozens of mattress in the dumpster. Like come on! "oh is just you guys, oh blah blah"
The only saving grace is that the treatment is covered, which I think it obviously should. But every time the flat is getting a treatment I have to move all the furniture, is just a hassle with the cat and all.
Final conclusion is that, this apartment is filled with greasy folks, and the poor management does not make up for it

I moved in june of 2012 and they never disclosed that there were any pest problems with the building even after I asked about cockroaches and bed bugs. The first day I had someone come up to me and say to warn me that the building is infested with cockroaches and bed bugs. I just sort of brushed it off thinking that I won't have that problem cause it just got all redone boy was I wrong..I was seeing the cockroaches just about everyday but it wasn't until the 2 week I was living there that I noti
ced bite marks on my daughter and on me, didn't think anything of it just thought it was flea bites from a friends dog. I happened to have a friend come over and we flipped my couch over and sure enough bed bugs, the office had someone come in within 48 hours to spray, now it's been just over 3 weeks and someone was suppose to come in to spray again but nobody showed up. I've never come across anything like this before and now it feels like I'm stuck here because they want everyone to sign a years lease..so beware of anyone thinking of moving in to any of these Mainstreet Equity buildings they may pretty them up by painting and putting in new floors but it's a nightmare
