Review of Steve Stahlman – East Maxwell St, 40515

Rating: 1 out of 5.

“We moved into 463 Maxwell Street KNOWING that we should have gotten a lease BECAUSE of things like this, but we were 19 and anxious to move close to UK… something everyone who moves in to places like that are thinking… and BOY did we learn our lesson. Y’ALL GET A FORMAL LEASE!!! Because of this you might or might not want to post my review, but I know he has rented to others when we moved out. Same deal, no lease. Our landlord was furloughed at one point and lived in the attic while we were there. When our roommate got fleas, the entire house had to be bug bombed multiple times, a cost we paid for. In the process of washing everything we owned, the dryer (from the late 60s) gave out and our landlord told us to hang the clothes on the line out back…. as if the fleas weren’t also outside… on east maxwell… with an unfenced backyard… Then in the winter, one of the pipes must have burst under the house in the crawl space with a dirt floor. Because none of the stuff down there was ours, and that there wasn’t an easy way to get down there, we didn’t notice anything happened until Summer when the house started smelling foul. Our landlord asked us to fix it ourselves… the basement was full of mold and water and likely sewage. The toilet on multiple occasions would break, and the first time we noticed, it was being held together by A TACK and AN ERASER to make it plunge… a $20 kit from walmart fixed it, something we also paid for. The rest of the toilet was leaking water into the grout in the bathroom (I think this is the pipe that burst (GROSS)). The stove (probably from the 1900’s) leaks Carbon Monoxide into the house, something my room mate’s mom tested for. I hope he replaced that thing. Lastly, and the part that salted the wound, is that while we gave (27 days so I get that it was under a month) notice, and after our landlord came back to the house, AFTER someone had already moved in (so there was no formal look through) he accused us of stealing forks and cups and a bookshelf? (none of which we did.) He threatened to sue us in small claims court, but as he had no lease and we DIDN’T, I think he realized there was not a case. I love this site, and BEWARE OF PEOPLE WHO RENT WITHOUT LEASES.”
