If you can avoid this place, please do. Clearly whoever wrote the below post, was put into the newer housing that is currently being developed. All of the other housing is literally from the 50's/60's. We were literally warned upon move in that our place has had lead paint used, but it was never removed, merely painted over(wtf?).\r\n\r\n No matter how clean of a house you have, you can count on there being palmetto bugs in your house. We clean our house all the damn time, and there are still roaches. The only thing that ""slowed"" them down, was poison. We even had a fire ant infestation, which we were told ""That is the south for ya"". Thanks, but how about sending the exterminator.\r\n\r\n Upon moving in, our place reeked of cat litter, and there were plenty of stains ground into the carpetting and flooring, the paint was all over the floor, the flooring was coming up and uneven all over the kitchen and carpeting, there was random glue blotches, etc. That is just the flooring. \r\n\r\n There were 3 bd rooms and 2 ba in the place we were at. If someone is showering in the master bathroom, and a person decides to shower in the guest bath, yeah. Don't EVEN think you will be getting a drop of hot water. It all shuts down and goes to the guest bath. The faucets and toilets were covered in rust, calcium, etc when we moved in. Also, should you feel the need to be adventerous, go ahead a remove the screen in the master bath shower floor...you will see YEARS of nasty_______....it will clog your shower up. Don't try Drain-o or hairclog as that won't fix it. You're better off with a plunger since it's a problem with the piping.\r\n\r\n I remember looking up at the ceiling, and seeing HUGE cracks all over that were taped and painted over. Almost all of the doors were completely trashed. The back ""patio"" door, wouldn't lock all the way, the kitchen/carport door wouldn't stay shut, and the front door wouldn't open without a fight. It was all mentioned, yet never taken care of. Oh. And if it rains hard enough, you will be without power. \r\n\r\n You are MUCH better off living on base. Yeah, it's convient to live on base, but it isn't worth it by any means(at least not in the housing you will get put in). For the BAH you give them, you could live in a MUCH nicer apt or townhouse. If you do choose to live here, check your airfilters. When our AC cut out, the guy who came and checked it out was in shock as our filter hadn't been changed in just over 5 years...pathetic.\r\n\r\n Move out and cleaning...we were told that we could either do it ourselves, OR, we could have them do it. In our case, it was $200 for a carpet cleaning and since we had pets, and oder eliminater. I'm just saying...it costs $100 to rent a Rug- Doctor at Walmart with the stuff we would have needed. They will charge you and arm and a leg should you not maintain the place.\r\n\r\n As for the management...yeah freaking right...we were in the process of a move and management basically had us set up to move in a day(not happening). So they switched it up for 2 days. Not happening. They then threatened to TAKE our money and make us pay and tried to tell us that we were under their rules. We had to get a Chief Warrant Officer to help us out(set them straight)....\r\n\r\n The only positives I have, are for some of the staff and all of the maintenance staff. The maintainence guys are always willing to help and are as sweet as can be. Hell. With some issues, they even show you how to fix it(if it is really simple). Some of the ladies who work in the staff room are also very sweet and helpful. Also, security is pretty good.\r\n\r\n

Move on in! My husband and I had a great experience at the Joint Base Community! The homes are spacious and the maintenance staff is top notch. Whenever we had an issue they responded immediately and fixed the issue. They did have an issue with landscaping, but that company was let go and now things are shapping up. to comment on the bug comment from above welcome to the south! Bugs are everywhere. My husband and I keep are house clean and we never had an issue with bugs inside our home. As for outdoors Balfour Beatty did not creatre bugs and ants god did. \r\nBalfour Beatty also has amazing events that are always free with food, games, prizes, playgroups and more. My husband and I are receiving new orders and I hope Balfour Beatty will be at our next station. The staff is wonderful at the Charleston base. I recommend this community.

AVOID. If you are thinking of living on the base for the ease of it, it is well worth it to find somewhere else to live.\r\n\r\nFirst of all, they are building new houses and may decide at any moment to demolish the house you live in. So you have to live through one more move that you shouldn't have to (while military families are accustomed to moving, we really shouldn't have to because some paper pusher can't do their job and LOOK AHEAD!).\r\n\r\nThe houses are infested with palmetto bugs, the grounds are infested with fire ants. IF you are lucky they might mow your lawn, but you will probably have to complain ten times in order for them to actually do it.\r\n\r\nThe personnell at the housing office are RUDE, inconsiderate and flat out disrespectful to military members and their families. There is no sense of respect whatsoever and it becomes clear quite quickly that at the end of the day, they are trying to profit from servicemembers' BAH by charged exorbitant rent for junk and then, when you move out the real fun begins.\r\n\r\nUpon move out, you have two choices - clean your house or pay $400 or $500 dollars for them to do it. If you are stuck in this sutuation, I strongly suggest forking over the money and avoid the BS of cleaning it and waiting for an inspection. No matter what, they will show up LATE (while you are sitting there with a loaded moving truck and nothing to do with a long ride ahead of you) and will find a dozen things wrong and hook you for hundreds anyway!\r\n\r\nIt is disgusting that the employees of this company find it perfectly acceptable to provide half assed services to military members. Don't we give up enough for the nation without having to be disrespected and screwed by these people??\r\n\r\nAVOID. Find an independent landlord that may show you a bit of courtesy.

Pros: It's on base

Cons: Bug infested, rude employees, horrible policies
