The landlord puts minimal effort into maintaining the building at 1326 Ocean Avenue, despite it being only about 3 years old. My apartment wasn’t cleaned prior to move in, which should have been a big warning sign! The toilet seat was broken, the kitchen counter tops and stove were scratched and soiled, and there were visible cracks in the walls near the windows. There are two wierd cement blocks bolted onto the back of the stove, giving off a very bad chemical odor when I cook. There are mold issues throughout the building, and the water is very hard. The hard water renders the washer and dryers in the basement useless because the clothes don’t rinse properly, leaving the clothes dingy, unclean, and with limescale and rust stains. The landlord doesn’t vet tenants at all. One of my neighbors has been smoking and using drugs and the building has done nothing about it. Despite being a no smoking building, there are multiple smoking complaints and the landlord has taken no substantive action to address them. Security has been pretty much nonexistent since I’ve been here, with multiple trespassers and an attempted break in that I was unlucky enough to witness (See problematic neighbor above). There are a lot more problems in the building (illegal shared electrical meters, illegal apartment conversions, illegal commercial construction), but I’ll just say I’d would recommend avoiding any buildings managed by Rogers management or Otts Ocean LLC!
