“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!”
"I rented from Krista McLaughlin and McGregor Properties in 2019. The property was sold to a different company, Urban Vigor LLC, during my lease. Let's just say the transition was not handled well and I have numerous issues with both companies. My main issues were: 1. Urban Vigor did not pay the gas bill which was outlined as included in my rent, so my gas was shut off. They said this was not their fault since the previous owners with McGregor Properties didn't tell them they had to pay this bill when they bought the property? 2. When Columbia Gas came to turn the gas back on, it turns out I had been living for a year with a "red tag condition" that could have resulted in my injury or death (photo of letter attached). They turned my stove on, but I had to live without heat until I moved out two months later. It was spring, but it was still cold and I'm entitled to heat! 3. I moved out due to the above and due to being treated really unprofessionally by Jey Marks at Urban Vigor. But it did not stop there - I did not get my security deposit check and pro-rated rent refund check back for 82 days after move out. Countless calls, emails, and even in person trips to their office were made...TERRIBLE follow-up and they lied to me numerous times. Also, it is mandatory in the state of KY for landlords to return the security deposit within 60 days of move out, so what they were doing was ILLEGAL and was during a PANDEMIC. Overall, rude, unethical, illegal, bad people. Don't do it!"
"They are a horrendous property management company! I have needed a new HVAC unit since we moved in 3 summers ago. Every summer I have had to call multiple times to have them come fix it. They’ve done “bandaid” type fixes the previous two summers but are finally supposed to be replacing the unit except it has now been discovered that the piping throughout the entire home has been done incorrectly and my HAVC unit has to be put on hold until that is addressed. However, about a month ago I had to call them to send a plumber out because I had sewage (that has came up my kitchen sink ever since I moved in anytime I run my washing machine) began coming up through my bathtub and toilet suddenly. They have now added a fee of $299 to my account saying that it was my fault the sewage was backed up. It was NOT! The piping throughout the entire home is messed up! I had a sudden gas leak in my hot water heater towards the end of winter/early spring that I had to call the emergency maintenance line and was told that it wasn’t an emergency so I would have to wait until they became available to come out and fix it. After getting advice from a friends husband who is a local firefighter, my three very young children and I had to evacuate immediately and the fire department had to come out to address the leak. The property management company acted like it was no big deal but the firemen told me that had my children and I went to bed that night we potentially may not have woken up the next morning. While the firemen were here they checked the smoke detectors and found that if there ever were a fire, the smoke detectors that we had would not have even worked they were so outdated. The firemen were so kind and installed updated ones free of charge along with a CO2 detector. This company is quick to tack on any charge they possibly can but gives tons of kickback if repairs are ever needed. The employees are always very rude and never easy to work with. I do NOT recommend anyone renting through them!"
"Went up on rent yearly and extremely like $100 a pop after 7yrs without raise. Roaches came in the last 2yrs when another tenant vacated and remained in the entire building not just my unit. Management company was awful after all trade left. Didn't fix anything all plumbing was connected and when upstairs neighbor had a sink issue it closed mine as well and couldn't fix. Twice they cut off my electric even though it was included in lease. Was reimbursed once but the first time nothing at all. (Days each time) had 2 separate deposits there because of a previous apartment gas leak id moved and was told id have to wait 30 days between and when i finally moved still nothing for either unit. On the plus side now no roaches and no headache. Having bad management did me a favor."
"Constant changing of office personnel, upping rent without notice or adding charges out of no where. Apartment rules constantly changing, maintenance refuses to fix anything unless they can come when you aren't home (I am home constantly). During COVID, tons of threats and illegally evicting half of the apartment complex."
"Steve House is a slum lord, plain and simple. His properties are dilapidated, below code, and willfully neglected. He often operates by cash with no printed lease, which leaves his more vulnerable tenants without any legal footing. I lived in two of his properties and have been inside many. They are roach infested, have black mold, multiple leaks, and are a serious health hazard. When told about the roaches for the ninth time, Steve House would respond that “every house in Lexington has roaches”. The building I used to occupy currently has a condemned sign on the front door, and multiple residents living inside with no where to go."
Review of Brenda Stewart – Columbia Heights, 40502 ★ "Brenda Stewart is a disgusting leech. She kept the entire security deposit without justification. Never provided an itemized list. We cleaned for several days before moving out and left the apartment in better shape than when we moved in. She lives in a huge suburban mcmansion and makes… Continue reading Review of by Brenda Stewart nousernamepls
"My landlord tried to make me move apartments and leave me homeless for 2 weeks even though it was not in the lease agreement. When people came in to fix issues with and clean the apartment - with no notice, mind you, they left my door open so anyone could come after the left, they left trash on my doorstep, and they left all of the lights on - I pay for electric. Every time I have tried to contact him, I get no answer and he never returns my calls or emails. The one time I was able to speak to him, he was very rude and would often cut me off when talking to him."
Review of Jim Arnold – Idle Hour, 40502 ★★ "He was understanding in many situations, but the gutter/siding above the door outside broke off and it was months before it was fixed. The building didn’t have fire alarms. He requires written notice WELL in advance before your lease ends if you want to move but doesn’t point… Continue reading Review of Jim Arnold by OCH
