Bedford Square Apartments in Canton Mi absolutely has taken the title of worst managed apartments. Management is incredibly rude and unprofessional. I had to go through a year and a half of a constantly breaking air/ heating unit. The pipes broke inside and flooded water into the entire front room. When I called for them to fix it... Nobody got back to me for two day and then another few days for them to have someone out here to "clean" the carpet. The side walks have been iced over every winter for the last 3 years leaving an incredibly dangerous and slippery hazard. Not to mention the lake that forms on the southeast side of the courtyard side walk. Management wants to up your rent every lease a considerabl amount. When I moved here, one of the selling points was the pool. I moved in here in February... I was told the pool would be opening in the summer. Come to find out that when I signed my lease, it was known but the apartment complex that the pool would be taken out that summer. So they used a something as a selling point to get you in even though they knew it would be removed that spring. ... They lied. I'm not sure what the laundry room situation is in other buildings but in my building... The dryer was not even attached to the wall. It was a fire hazard and nobody cared to fix it for months. They charge you 30 dollars for water but then tell you if you use any water outside of your unit... Then you're stealing... Yet they can use the heat or air conditioning from your unit that you personally pay DTE for, to heat or cool their halls. I've been told that before kaftan communities took this place over, it was very nice and things were taken care of and you weren't micro managed for every little thing you did. This place is not being run right and they do not care about the quality of living here. They just want to put on a show and then acre you over as soon as you sign that lease. Look someplace else for a quality place to live. Or people need to start demanding that kaftan communities treat the renters right. It's ridiculous!
Bedford Square Apartments has just taken the title of WORST APARTMENT LIVING that I have had.
If I was to write this 1 year ago, my rating would have been a 4/5, with minor nit picks like noisy kids or what is in my opinion a terrible parent company to deal with (Kaftan Enterprise). Things that could be overlooked really. However in the last few months the experience of living at Bedford has become absolutely horrible.
There is NO permanent property manager at Bedford Square. There has been only a manager from another Kaftan property who on a temporary basis checks in on the Bedford Square apartments. When I have asked Kaftan when a permanent manager will be hired, I get stone-walled. The temp manager may be great in his own community, but he is not doing a good job at Bedford Square IMHO. I am at odds as to whether I blame him for his incompetence, or the fact that Kaftan has dropped another property in his hands. Maybe he just isn't skilled enough to manage 2 places at once. But even little things like being able to drop rent off have become a nuisance. So to speak of an issue like the inability for snow removal from the big storm we just got makes things seem just ridiculous. In years past there was no issue with snow removal, or properly salted sidewalks and porches.
Now because there's no on site manager we can also go weeks with porch and interior entryway/lobby lights out. Not safe at night with a very dark entry way. There's of course other issues, trash seems to be strewn about at times and not picked up. Lawn maintenance has diminished since last Summer in the period after the previous property manager being fired/quitting. And yet we seem to be asked to pay more and more and as you see, we get back less and less.
Unfortunately I am stuck at the horrible place for now, but I am writing this so that you can stay clear. I seriously doubt you want to live at Bedford Square Apartments at this time.
Thanks for reading.
