I wanted to talk with someone about renting here. Before I had even reached the front office, the property manager came out and told me I was trespassing, and I had to leave. I tried to explain why I was there, but she just kept screaming(literally SCREAMING) over me. She called the police and told them I was a solicitor who refused to leave the property. At this point, I REALLY did not want to live there, but, as I tried to return to my car, she threw herself in front of me. She said I couldn't leave until the authorities arrived. I pulled my phone out so I could capture all this on video. As soon as I did so, she quieted, removed herself from my path, and started back towards the office. I was very through with the whole situation, and just left before she could escalate it any further. I don't know what it's like to live here, but I cannot imagine it would be very plesant.
Signal View Condominiums located at 900 Mountain Creek Road is not worth your time. I had a major leak that flooded over half of my apartment (Apt U429) and their fix was practically nothing. The entire ceiling above my living room started to fill up completely with water before I found it and it was leaking in dozens of spots across the living room, bed room, and bathroom. Water was pouring out of my ceiling vent in my master bedroom equivalent to a faucet turned completely on. To prevent the ceiling in my living room from collapsing, I told maintenance to poke a hole in the ceiling drywall so the water could drain. I ended up bucketing the pouring water out of the apartment for over 2 hours. Not to mention over 60% of the carpet in the entire apartment was completely soaked with water. After all is said and done, signal view did practically nothing to fix the wet carpet and repair the dry wall. I ended up buying $500 worth of floor fans, extension cords, a dehumidifier, and an air purifier to dry the apartment out myself. After over 5 weeks of a nasty ceiling with dozens of stains and warped drywall, they replaced the drywall with the hole in it only. This was after I complained to the city code enforcement about them not repairing the apartment. Signal View s board president Rex Parton then told me, We are going to let it sit and see what happens. They did not want to spend the money to replace all the completely soaked and warped drywall on the ceiling (20 drywall sheets need to be replaced). They painted over all the stain spots to make it look nice. All the left over moisture has been sealed in the ceiling and I will certainly experience a bad mold problem soon. During January of 2014 (this year) Signal View s condominiums have experienced almost 100 different leak problems. This tells you how worn down and poorly kept up the apartments/condominiums are. Because of the improper living conditions of my apartment, I have had to sleep on my couch next to the air filter and dehumidifier for over 5 weeks.In conclusion the repair experience has been extremely disappointing and Signal View failed completely to the standards they promised before I signed the lease. SAVE YOURSELF THE HEART ACHE AND AVOID SIGNAL VIEW. MANAGEMENT IS ONE CHEAPEST IN CHATTANOOGA AND WILL REFUSE TO REPAIR DAMAGES PROPERLY. Numerous other tenants are experiencing the same troubles as I am and management has failed them too. So far out of 8 people I ve talked too, all have been very disappointed with the way the complex is managed.
I am a current resident of Marina Pointe and have to say I have been disappointed since moving in.Our unit had some maintenance issues we were told would be addressed before our move in. Excessive, almost mold like, build up on the balcony. The latch for the entry door to the unit was not secure, the screws had been stripped from the door. The refrigerator needed to be leveled. Turns out there isn't a level spot in the floor.Six weeks later with visits to the office, phone calls and emails none of the issues have been addressed.Parking is an issue as there seem to be more cars than tenants. e have a two bedroom and rent a garage for one of our two cars. That is nice when we the garage isn't blocked by someone when we are leaving for work in the mornings. Again, this has been discussed with the office with no action taken by the property management.Now we have neighbors downstairs who after midnight each night create excessive noise with their TV and Stereo. They refuse to answer the door when I have gone down to speak with them about the issue. This has been reported to the office and surprise, nothing has been done to resolve the situation.The property is in a great location and most of our neighbors seem wonderful but the property management is more about sales management and getting units rented than they are about taking care of tenants after you get moved in.
