Our building was purchased by BJB about 18 months ago. We had no problems with our previous landlord, but since BJB took over, it has all been down hill. We've had our water shut off twice (once without any notice) and our gas turned off once (again, no notice and they had no legal right to this since we pay for the gas). When we complained that our living room windows were drafty, they sent out two guys who spoke no English; they NAILED the windows shut, then tried to put plastic tarps over the windows (over the mini-blinds and everything), before we stopped them. There was a series of break-ins to the basement storage units this winter. BJB didn't really care about it until the police had been out 4 times in a week. It turns out that a homeless man was living in the basement of the building; BJB's solution was to install a steel security door on the laundry room. This would be great, except they didn't replace the other decaying wooden doors that lead to the same area. Their workmen also have a habit of propping the basement doors open then leaving them open when they go home for the day, so there is no security at all. Calling the property manager to complain is a waste of time since she never answers the phone or returns a call. I once reached her in person and asked why she hadn't returned my three previous calls; she told me she didn't know how to reach me (YOU KNOW WHERE I LIVE!) The management doesn't care about the building or the tenants, and they had the gall to raise our rent $200 for our new lease. They also announced a tenant referral program - so we could recommend them to all of our friends. I wouldn't wish this experience on anyone. If BJB owns a building, don't rent from them. If they buy your building, plan on moving ASAP!
