It's a treat at White Oaks when the elevator doesn't smell like urine. It's a rare delight when the laundry room isn't flooded with fetid water. It's a blue moon to see anyone cleaning, repairing, or maintaining anything at the complex.
In March 2012, we were notified that we'd be losing our underground parking spot for two weeks while they did some construction. It's the end of October 2012, and they are STILL working on the garage. We are still paying for a parking spot we can't use.
Domestic disturbances are commonplace. The police are *always* parked outside our building. The hallways reek of pot and are often scrawled with racist graffiti. People let their dogs defecate in the lobby.
Management does not care about residents. They seem so nice and helpful until you sign your lease. They promised us they'd paint our unit and redo the floors. They didn't redo the floors; they're a scuffed, ugly laminate mess from past tenants. The walls were painted in the sloppiest manner I've ever seen. There's dried paint drops all over our worn floors, on the kitchen counter, on the bathroom mirror, even on the front doorknob.
This complex is disgusting. Living here is not worth saving a little money. Run. Run far away from White Oaks, do not rent here!
My wife and I made the mistake of moving into white oaks. They do not maintain anything, people are ALWAYS stuck in the elevator, there are German cockroaches everywhere, dead mice rotting on the walk ways, teenagers urinate and puke all over the buildings stairwells and lobby and management just do nothing, the fire alarms are always going off for no reason, They charge illegal fees, They lied when they told me there was on-site security because I have lived here 6 months and have NEVER seen a security guard. I do however see homies getting stoned and selling drugs in the stairwells and getting arrested for pointing loaded guns at people. Management lie through there teeth and treat you like garbage. I suffer every minute i am here. Please for the love of god stay away from this DIRTY GHETTO ran by slumlords.
After residing in White Oaks for the past 8 months, it truly has been dreadful. The most recent horror story i have has to do with taking the Elevator in my building. My boyfriend was taken up to the 20th floor in the elevator where it dropped floor after floor after floor. He was stuck in the elevator for half an hour and finally the fire department came... He ended up just walking off the elevator after the horrifying "ride". When I went to the rental office to speak with management about this. They had no idea of the incident which had happened 2 days before. I was told this happens when people "press the buttons over and over again"... There is no reason why an elevator should DROP. I was no told "sorry" and I was told I was "looking for a fight" when i really am concerned for the elderly people in my building. I recommend that people keep themselves safe and sound by staying away from these buildings. The management does not care about their tenants and they only want the rent checks.
--> this deserves no stars!
