Apartment Upset From a Lansing Area Resident
Have you ever moved into a house or apartment and had trouble with management or the place itself? Cause I have. I'm not going to say where it is I'm currently living, but this is by far the worst living situation I've experienced.
The last couple of times I've had to move, I had to do it blindly because I was moving to a different state. The first two times I did it, I got relatively lucky and the apartments were nicely kept. The apartment I'm currently in is far from nice. I probably should've thought twice when the leasing agent said, "These apartments are really close together and sometimes collect moisture. So, if you see any mildew or mold, wipe it off and then let us know if it returns." Excuse me, is that even legal? If I wasn't limited on time, I probably wouldn't have chosen to live here.
The first thing I noticed was the entire place reeked of cigarettes. Then I try to turn on the water to clean and not only does the water smell like sulfur, but it's black. Eventually, if you run the water long enough, it runs clear, you just have to hurry and shower so you don't run out of hot water.
Hold on, we're not done yet. I have baseboard heating and it barely heats my apartment. In fact, it doesn't heat my apartment at all, I use a space heater. So obviously there's no central air and I have a wall unit. Which is fine, I've had one before. Except for the fact that some weird type of beetle family must be living in the air unit because they keep getting in my house. How do I know they're coming from that area? Because my cat stares behind my head when they fly out, like there's a ghost coming to collect my soul.
Last but not least, the windows are terrible. They're not properly insulated. The last couple weeks have been extremely cold and my bedroom window was completely incased in ice the other day and ruined a necklace I had sitting on the windowsill. Back in December I called management to tell them that I came home and my window was cracked and they waited until last week to get back to me. Maybe it's because I talked about it on air. Which would be a weird coincidence since I didn't say where I lived. But either way I'm glad it's finally getting fixed. Let's just say I'm counting down the days until my lease is up in September.
