“Triple Crown at Tates Creek probably has a new name again by now, but that's not suprising because they changed management about once a year. But Denton Floyd real estate is who got us to finally leave. The last 2 years we lived there, we had a recurring bed bug infestation. It was disgusting and we ended up having to throw away furniture. I'm still wary of buying furniture with cloth upholstery because the memory of bugs is too disgusting... They sprayed at least 6 times, and the only thing we could really do was move. Disgusting. ALSO the maintenance was slow and the workers didn't want to be there, one of them even told me they weren't getting paid what they were told. We had a broken fridge for over a month waiting for them to get around to fixing it. I ended up calling upper management really angry that they were forcing me to not have a refrigerator. All of my food spoiled, in the fridge and the freezer. We demanded they pay us in damages and I think they took $200 or something off our rent the next month, but that doesn't make up for how badly they ignored us for weeks and weeks. I lived directly across the parking lot from the office and could see what maintenance was doing most of the time: raking/blowing leaves or picking up trash in the parking lot. Eventually they didn't even get us a new fridge like they said they would, they just switched out our broken one for the one sitting in the vacant apt above us.... Why they couldn't have done that to begin with I still don't know. We didn't get our deposit back, tho we did have cats (that we paid entirely too much rent for). The pet rent is per animal, in case they weren't clear with you upfront. AND once when we were renewing our lease a new girl in the front office said it was fine to have 3 cats, so we adopted a stray. But soon someone else noticed and said we couldn't... So we, again, put our foot down and pointed out its was what was written in our lease agreement. Needless to say, we left as soon as we could find a new place. Stay away from Pimlico Pkwy!”
Review of Lana McKinley by Retro
"I enjoyed living at this property. I only moved because I decided to live with my partner and we needed a bit more space. My apartment was quiet and freshly renovated with a new washer/dryer. In my time there, I had one major issue: the apartment had bedbugs when I moved in. I worked with management to get rid of them in a few weeks with no reoccurrences through the rest of my two years. It was an awful situations but I was happy with how it was handled. Sometimes the shower drain would get stopped up and they’d send someone within a day or two to fix them. They always knocked before coming in and the maintenance people were respectful. They kept the common hallway really clean, as well as the parking lot. I would rent with this company again in the future, for sure."
Review of Micah Poston / Burton Properties by fer
"He did no cleaning or repairs between tenants, and left all of it up to the one roommate who had lived there the prior year. That roommate was the only one who was able to get any large-scale maintenance done, often by calling the landlord multiple times and/or threatening legal action. The apartment on the first floor (there was one on the first and one on the 2nd/3rd) had bedbugs and it was entirely up to the tenants to rectify the situation upon moving out. We left the apartment significantly better than we found it (patched holes in the wall that were already there, removed things that were glued/taped to the ceiling, cleaned things that were not clean when we moved in) and didn’t receive any portion of our security deposit ($1,750 total) nor any explanation of why. All 4 of us repeatedly called and texted and emailed the landlord. as well as Burton Properties about it for months, citing security deposit law violations, and were never responded to. They will literally ghost you about the security deposit when you move out. Finally, after leaving an angry voicemail 3 months after moving out, I received about half of my deposit in the mail with a post-it note saying “-150 for cleaning and carpet repair” scrawled on it. No other roommate received anything. I sent a letter citing violations of KY Security Deposit Law and demanding he return the full amount to all of us and included our forwarding addresses and heard nothing. He violated KY security deposit law on multiple instances, but I am a recent graduate who doesn’t have the time or money to go to small claims court, and he knows that. If you live in any of their properties (there are a ton around UK so beware) I highly recommend reading the aforementioned code in detail and drafting some sort of agreement to ensure that he follow it, because I have no doubt that Burton Properties and Micah Poston make thousands of dollars off of the backs of college students who have no power to hold them accountable.
