Overall, I think Jialin was a great landlord and very clear in her expectations for her clients. I feel like most of the complaints here are from students who didn't fully understand the terms of the lease and honestly just inflammatory. She would visit somewhat often but she usually gave me a good heads up and would just be there to take care of the trash or make repairs. We can now pay her electronically and through the mail. The landlord is actually quite lenient when it comes to paying our rent, and the other complaints here just seem to be from those who either don't understand what a lease is and meeting deadlines means or just didn't read it. Deductions from my security deposit were reasonable and other tenants who received deductions did so for clearly leaving the apartment a mess after moving out. Although she may come off rude at times, I think she is just matter of fact and very clear with her expectations. So, definitely rent from Jialin.
Where to begin. So many issues but I will only focus on three. First of all she is rude. She threatens you and demands rent and charges $50 if not received on time due to the mail. She doesn't have a way to pay electronically so if the mail is delayed then you are charged if one day late and she will harass you. If you report damage she is very accusatory and will not pay a professional to fix it She will send her son and try and fix it and blame you if it's not fixed. Second of all, she and/or her son came in unannounced countless times, violating the lease and our privacy throughout the lease term. Finally, we kept the place clean all year and cleaned for two days prior to move out and she still charged us for cleaning, trash removal, painting and numerous other made up charges and kept half our security deposit. None of the charges were legit but we can't afford to sue her for it back so she gets to keep it. We feel robbed. The apartment was average and fine but definitely NOT worth the stress and extra money it cost us with all the added charges and loss of security deposit. Stay away.
Do not rent from Jialin wang. She is completely unprofessional and unreasonable. She refuses to give 100% of the security deposit back after following all guidelines and a discussion about the security deposit during the walk through on move out days. She harasses her tenants via text message even after they've moved out.
Jialin Wang is the worst landlord I have ever had the displeasure to deal with. She regularly came in unannounced, breaking our lease agreement of 24 hours notice, she does not maintain the common areas of the apartment building, and all she cares about is getting paid. She is greedy. My roommate accidentally paid her an extra month's rent and she said nothing and was not going to return the money. Currently she is trying to charge us for removing OUR couch from the apartment, claiming it is her property. Stay far away from Jialin and Silver City Realty. They are unprofessional and disrespectful to their tenants.
Apartment is not the worst, but with the price that they ask, it's definitely not the best. Landlord sometimes comes in unannounced, saying that she has texted or sent out emails, but none of the tenants received any. And it's not like she didn't have our contacts. She had sent out emails and texts before.
Comes over FREQUENTLY, without 24 hours notice, and if you get the "luxury" of a notice, there's a good chance that she AND her son will be going into rooms they said they didn't need to get to, and overall just lie about why they needed to come in in the first place. Extremely rude and unprofessional, takes inappropriate tones with the tenants about issues and will leave things unfixed for months, preferring to have her son try to fix the issue and only making it worse instead of hiring a professional for an hour of work. While she is putting off repairs for months, you will have to pay her overpriced rent early because she forces you to send it through the mail, and if it isn't there on the first, god help you because she will harass you for the rest of your lease even if its a day late on one payment.
Absolutely terrible landlord. Literally came to check the apartment once a week which was so inconvenient and inconsiderate. It's like she wants to spy on all of her tenants. Paying rent is also inconvenient because you don't pay online like normal people, you have to send a check and if the mail is late then you're late and she's up your ass.
Jialin is a very proactive and understanding landlord. She addresses any issues in the apartment building fast. She is also a good communicator as she responds quickly and clearly, while also keep her tenants informed. I have never once had an issue with her and am renewing my lease here due to the superior location, but also due to the positive experience I have had with Jialin.
Just outright terrible. She complained about petty things like room cleanliness, and stupid crap like that. Comes in unannounced, breaks the lease, and has no place to put the trash. House is badly kept, basement is haunted (figuratively), and there is a rodent problem. Landlord simply blames it on us and doesn't fix it. Also the toilet was broken for weeks on end, and there was only one bathroom.
