The Residences of Bexley Woods Really Should Get Their Stuff Together Part 2

***Edit***

The Residences of Bexley Woods have come under new management. Everything that I am reporting is STILL broken as of this post. However new management is much more communicative than the management prior. Discussions on the prior management company, New Life, will be in a later post

As before, I want to preface these blog entries by saying I don’t want money. I really just want my problems resolved and for the complex to uphold their end of the rental agreement. If they are incapable of doing that, I want to be released from the rental contract when I find other housing with no fault or any repercussions. I intend to keep up with this until an amicable resolution can be reached.

The Residences of Bexley Woods… what can I say?

Despite the “fixed” door and my uncertainty if it is watertight or not, that is “done”.

What also was done was my dishwasher, I can only assume it’s still in parts and the leak in my basement, I can also only assume still leaking. I called at 9:30pm EST last night and left a message. now at 10:20am EST I’ve heard nothing and the number for the main line apparently can’t take my call right now. I’ve contacted a lawyer search, hopefully this will net me something. I’m also going to make another large post tonight, complete with photographs.

Really, this is above and beyond horrible.

Another Update

I’ve collected pictures, but I’m really too spitting mad about this to not post. The staff at the complex replaced the lock on my door and looks like they sealed it better. It’s ugly as sin, but hey, it locks.

They dismantled my dish washer and left it like that. With no note. I called and complained and was told that they needed to get a new one and would replace it. I said fine, and left it at that till a moment ago.

Guess what’s leaking again? In the exact same spot? Oh yeah, from my dishwasher down to my basement. I took a photo of it. Because I’m really beyond livid at this point. Really, can’t they do ANYTHING without making a bigger mess than they left it?

Townhouse Update

Called today. They had none of my “emergency” work orders in and the oldest of my work orders is slated as 14 days old. I suspect that either the orders didn’t get put into the system or they delete them after a certain age to they have “proof” that they are compliant with code. I am going to contact a code person on Monday and see if I can get someone to come out. This will be proof that they are not keeping up with their end of my lease agreement. I don’t want it to be my word against theirs.

I’m also going to send a work order notice in writing, certified and dated on Monday. Let’s see how they handle that.

The Residences of Bexley Woods Really Should get Their Stuff Together

The Residences of Bexley Woods Really Should get Their Stuff Together

I want to preface these blog entries by saying I don’t want money. I really just want my problems resolved and for the complex to uphold their end of the rental agreement. If they are incapable of doing that, I want to be released from the rental contract when I find other housing with no fault or any repercussions. I intend to keep up with this until an amicable resolution can be reached.

On March 23rd, 2012 I was supposed to move into the Residences of Bexley Woods in Columbus OH. (Off Travis Road, in case you’re keeping tabs). I had entered into the agreement to move to the complex over a month in advance. Please note, this means they had over a month to get things together. When I walked the show model I was amazed. Hardwood floors, a newly remodeled kitchen, wonderful fenced in back yard, and two amazingly well lit bathrooms. I was assured they were updating all the units but my unit “may have carpet”. I didn’t mind that and gave them a check within a week.

Here is a link to their online walkthrough:

This is the unit I walked. I want to be VERY CLEAR that this is the unit that I was sold.

I knew that the one I moved into wouldn’t be as nice as this. However, on March 23rd, I realized how “not as nice” that really was. There is actually so much to be told that I am going to have to break this up into a few posts. Please note, the following posts will include a fire on the drop stove, water damage, and all sorts of nasty surprises.
