Applied (mis)Management, FiOS, & more
As many Shipyard area residents uptown might already know, Verizon has been wiring numerous buildings and units with cables and connections for the “much anticipated” FiOS fiber optic cable, phone and internet services.
Good apartments gone bad
“Do you get many complaints about the Shipyard and Applied Management?
I came home from work last week around 8pm to find my door AJAR and my pet locked in my bedroom without AC, food, water, or means to go to the bathroom. (please note, my door was open…propped open by both the dead bolt and a rolled up piece of paper).
Apparently, the management group has been going apartment to apartment to upgrade to FiOS and it was ‘my day’. But shouldn’t there be some accountability for that? I mean, aside from animal cruelty and the fact that my apartment was left open all day where anyone could have entered and taken anything… but I’m a 30 year old single woman. What if someone let themselves in and waited for me to come home? That’s a safety issue. I spoke with a friend (an attorney) and he said though it was negligence on their part, there are no damages because nothing was taken and my pet was shaken up, but OK. However, I can’t believe that is it. I’ve called twice and left messages expressing my unhappiness and no one has called me back.
This isn’t the first time I’ve had issues, either. I had raw sewage backed up into my bathtub SEVEN times. Each time they sent someone over to put bath crystals (equal to Drano) down the drain and said ‘it won’t happen again’. It wasn’t until I threatened legal action and that I’d contact the Department of Health, that they finally sent over a plumber to fix the problem. It took him 20 minutes to snake the drain (which they should have done initially) and tell me how HE couldn’t believe it’s taken as long as it has. It’s been three weeks (knock on wood) and so far, so good. I started taking showers without wearing flip flops for the first time two weeks ago since April!
Either way… I’m very upset about finding my home completely exposed and my pet trapped in a room without food, water or AC for hours. Again, aside from the obvious, there are also safety issues involved. Anyone else complaining about this management team or anything? I can’t believe I’m the only one having issues. Also, do you know who I can elevate this too? I can’t believe they aren’t calling me back. I don’t really know what to do anymore!”
Does anyone else living in any of Applied’s properties also have problems?
Do you have any suggestions (other than “move if you don’t like it”) that might help her problems get solved?
