Apartment complex is really old and dead quiet.It smells very musty and gross. The on-site management lady treats you like a prisoner in jail. You should definitely take pictures and document the condition before moving in because she will charge as much of your deposit as possible!

Also, you can definitely hear and *smell* everything of your neighbors through the paper thin walls. No privacy at all!!! I would never recommend living here!!!!

Review of Hastings Terrace Apartments by a former renter (moved after more than 4 years).

Building is fairly old (built in early 70's). Many balconies have decaying wooden planks. Common lawn is not well kept (has lots of dead grass). Cheesy aesthetics (e.g. fake plastic flower beds at manager's office and throughout complex). Apartment doors do not have dampeners, so there are many door slammings with loud noises. Walls are thin, so conversations and footsteps can be heard. Hallways do not have good ventilations, trapping odors from tenants' cooking. Most appliances (stove, refrigerator, dishwasher, and air conditioner) are old.

Maintenance is frequent and timely. The interior walls have been recently painted. Water pipes have been repaired often. Laundry facilities are decent. Surveillance cameras have been installed at entrance doors.

Rent used to be reasonable, but is now too high for the apartment's conditions. Rent is not negotiable and usually increases by 15% around beginning of each year.

New apartment manager is not very amicable. She is rather autocratic and engages in idle gossiping with some tenants about other tenant's activities.

Management will treat you like a prisoner. Try and break a lease and you will need to go to court. Even if the apartment is in perfect condition when you leave, they will retain as much of your deposit as they think they can get away with (definitely take photos of the apartment before moving in).
The tenants I met were nice, could be Stockholm Syndrome though.

Good stuff:
- Apartment complex is maintained clean
- Repairs are promptly taken care of
- On site manager, so major problems are taken care of immediately
- Neat swimming pool, (old) pool table, table tennis etc
- The owner seems to be reasonable guy
- Reasonable rents
- Manager pays close attention to who is coming and going out

Bad stuff:
- Current manager is really over zealous. She can make your life hell if you get into her bad books - you might even be pressured into vacating. May even be biased towards a specific race. She seems to have least respect for tenants.
- The walls do not stop noise - so much so that you can hear conversations, quarels etc of your neighbours especially in the night
- Some times one can hear wood cracking noise in the complex

Don?t even waste your time calling! I lived there for six months and they could care less about your health and happiness and just want to take as much of your money as possible. The apartment was in total disrepair and covered in mold! They kept more of my deposit than we agreed to and I don?t know how they stay in business with these tactics. STAY AWAY!!!
