DO NOT RENT HERE

Posted 5 years ago

A few days after I decided to leave, I had horrible water damage in my apartment. The hot water tank in the apartment above me broke and water was pooling into my apartment. It was like someone had installed a faucet in my kitchen ceiling and left it on full blast when I came home. My dog had been in the apartment the whole time the water damage occurred while I was at work, leaving my dog in a potentially hazardous situation. The water was pooling in the kitchen's lighting features. I was afraid to turn on any lights in the apartment for fear that water had damaged the electric lines and possibly started a dangerous chain of events. It took at least five hours before a maintenance man showed up to address the situation. They used a water vac to suck up as much water as possible. However, I still had to live in the apartment for two weeks before I moved out. The apartment smelled like mold the entire time and parts of the ceiling fell apart the entire time. There was an enormous hole in the ceiling. The maintenance men did nothing to help me with these inconveniences. I couldn't use the kitchen appliances because they were so badly damaged by the water. So for 2 weeks I had to eat out because I couldn't cook in my kitchen. To top it all off, Blest Investment Group refused to give me my security deposit back after I moved out, despite the fact that the place was spotless (minus the terrible water damage I mentioned above, which was in no way my fault). This place is terrible. They will tell you they are not slumlords, make you live in a glorified slum, overcharge you for it, and refuse to give you your security deposit back no matter how clean you keep the place. If you happen to have any inconvenient experience that requires a maintenance crew - GOOD LUCK. They will not address your problem immediately. They will take their good old time addressing the issue and you will have to live in extremely inconvenient circumstances until they find the time to tend to your problems. Looking for a good rental company? Look at Steiner Realty. Look at Satan. Do NOT look at Blest Investment Group. End. Of. Story.
