Holland Park Apartments Complaint - Extortion, Deceptive Business practices

Review by Siobhan on 2007-05-05
LAWRENCEVILLE, GEORGIA -- They were taken over by a new management company as I was moving in. They promised a new Fitness center.....7 months later all machines still broken. They tore down one of only 2 laundry rooms that are supposed to service 500 apartments which left 7 washers and 8 dryers for over 500 apartments. Constant car stereos blairing all day long in the parking lots, car alarms, screaming kids, Mexicans with trashy cars who don't speak English cramming 5-7 people in one bedroom apartments with hyper active kids who run around till 12:30 am.
Gangs of black males stroll around the complex at 12:00 midnight till 2:30 am

It is a giant nightmare and to make things worse the management is charging me almost 900.00 to live there for the final 2 weeks of my lease when I should be paying 342.00. This is EXTORTION and it needs to STOP. I must get the word out how absolutely EVIL they are. I just want to save people from the torture of living there. NEVER in my life have I had to deal with this. I am so furious I can't see straight.

This complex is in Gwinnett County Georgia, Lawrenceville 30043

If Misery is what you seek...Holland Park will fit the bill.

If your lease says $342.00 that's all you pay! In two weeks MOVE.

Next apartment you lease you should go there at 12 am on Saturday and check it out. Also, call the local police and inquire about the apartments if they have any trouble there. Good luck!

I agree, move!!! And you shouldn't pay any more than what your lease says. Why are you paying more than what your lease says???

Sounds like a dump and you were moving anyway. Like the others, I am curious as to how they are overcharging you. Usually rents go by the month not weeks. Are you leaving early and want it pro-rated? If that's the case, you can be charged everything due up till the lease expires.

How long have you lived there? Were the same issues going on before the new management or only after they took over? You may want to visit the landlord - tenant laws of your state and see if you have any rights. Apartment complexes are required to be kept in reasonable and safe conditions at all times. There are circumstances where tenants can break their lease w/o paying any penalties if these requirements are not kept.
Take the advice of Pomona Guy before you sign any future leases.

It sounds to me like there is an approx $558 deposit or something that is not being applied or returned? Please explain why the $558 difference? It has to be for something, deposits, cleaning, other fee's? They can't just say pay us an additional $558 because they want to.

If you post here again maybe say something like: "Gangs stroll around the complex at 12:00 midnight till 2:30 am" and "Families are cramming 5-7 people in one bedroom apartments with hyper active kids who run around till 12:30 am."

There are other races in gangs besides blacks and Mexican's are not the only ones cramming to many people into apartments. Most readers on here you will find are not tolerant of racial or ethnic slurs and will let you know it. Just an FYI.

I must agree with everyone and superbowl about the race thing. I have lived in places like you are talking about and they were all white doing the same things. There are laws about too many people living in one place in GA. it is called "operating a dive" and there are also noise laws that say they can't make it after 10 PM.

If you lived in the same type of place in California the rent would be anywhere from 1500.00 to 2700.00 bucks a month. Time's is tuff, make the best of it and try to find another place to live. Good luck

You are a racist and you should have left that off your post.
