We appreciate their prompt service when something needs to be fixed and would highly recommend them to any future tenants.

We lived in the duplexes in Boone and they are horrible! Mold, broken plumbing that we ended up fixing ourselves after they failed twice, dumb rules and the worst construction there is. There is no place for kids to play, heaven forbid your kids should have toys outside because that is worthy of a fine! They will try to fine you for anything or threaten to take your property if it isn't put away. They don't notify you when they are doing maintenance. The floors are so hard that it hurts everyone to walk on them. Then when you move out they will try charging for everything to not give you a deposit back. We left it cleaner than we found it and they tried charging for everything. They will also deny getting notice that you are moving and try charging for a "showing fee" and "advertising done. They had it rented before our last month was even up because we were out early. We had paid for the month but didn't stay because we had bought and moved into our house. I went to take our garbage can back in on trash day and was surprised to find someone had moved in! They also refused to change the mailbox lock and denied having keys, we had to pay to get the lock changed just to receive our mail!

Kading Properties should not be in business and more people need to report their experiences with Home Inc, The Civil Rights Commission, report them to HUD and also report them to the Bad Landlord hotline. The way the tenants are treated isn't acceptable and we the people need to stick up for ourselves and report people like this to put a stop to it. Everyone deserves to be treated like a human being and we all deserve some common courtesy and have the right to live in a safe peaceful place that we pay rent for. To all of you that have already rented from Kading, know what I'm talking about. The rest of you keep looking elsewhere, Kading Properties will not treat you good, they don't care anything about anyone, just the money they can get from you including money you don't owe them, they will find away to charge you for things you don't owe them for. They don't do background checks, (who lives next door?) they don't spray for bugs, they won't do anything to or about the low lifes they move in and cause havoc in the neighborhood. They don't fix anything and if you let them, they will rent a dirty unit to you and believe me they will still charge you $450 deposit. There is no privacy whatsoever, kids will be in your yard, take your things, open your car doors, knock on your door and windows and run, throw rocks at your house and the adults are just as bad if not worse. The dogs are left to run and dog feces everywhere!!! If you don't believ anyone of the posts just call the police and ask them about Kading Properties Townhomes, the police know all about the problems. FYI Kading Proerties have several units in Des Moines, Altoona, Newton, Grinnell, Perry and Boone. I give them 0 stars and do not recommend anyone to rent from them.

i lived at kading properties in perry iowa 3 yrs ago and i was shown the unit that we were going to rent and it was gross and dirty,but i was told that when we were ready to move that the whole place was going to be redone and clean. YEAH RIGHT!!!! it still looked the same but the smell was even worse now. it took them 3 days to clean it up. then i was getting ready to have a baby and the baby came on the rent due date. so dan the maintence man came to my door showing a blank piece of paper in my face telling me that the VERY RUDE AND NASTY manganger Heather wanted me to sign this blank form. STAY AS FAR AWAY AS U CAN!!!they have many properties in small towns so make sure that they are not Kading Properties!!!!

I give this place NO STARS... this is a horrible place to live!! They treat you very poorly, do not fix things (our front door wouldn't lock for over 2 months) they refused to fix it... carpeting was awful, walls looked awful, cheap poorly built places.. biggest problem is the manager of this place Heather, she is stupid, and does not know the landlord/tenant laws. The handyman swore at me one day, and called me a liar about something that fell apart which was not our fault. When we were moving out, we found the carpet was soaking wet, and was all moldy under our furniture!! DO NOT RENT FROM THESE PEOPLE... unless you want to be treated like dirt and worse... and we did not get our deposit back either!! And we paid $725.00 a month with our own appliances!! They also do not spray for bugs... we had roaches and huge spiders and they refused to treat the property! WARNING WARNING find another place to live!! Managed by Kading Properties gestapo!!

We have lived with mold in our Kading properties in boone iowa for almost 1 year of really bad mold, all the kids and myself are really sick and have been for months. We called several times for repair and when the guy showed up to help us he just gave us a can of kilz and shrugged it off, so we started taking pictures, once i just gave the landlord the pictures of the horrible mold, and withheld the rent, then they decided to come in and help us. Well after the many hours the man spent here cleaning we found tons more mold when he left. They do not like to repair anything until you freak out, and Heather who cannot communicate with others without threats and yelling is pretty scary to deal with. And if you want to rent in Boone, this is the person you must deal with.....Beware I regret ever moving here, i now have to use an inhaler daily and i have hard times breathing because of the mold......Run

My girlfriend and I moved in here back in April of 2009 thinking it would be a great place to live. When we were shown the place, we were shown a clean, well kept unit thinking that was what we were going to get. 2 weeks before we were scheduled to move in, we stalked the neighborhood in Perry, IA to make sure it would be a great place to live and everything seemed very calm and quiet...little did we know that is NOT what it is. Once we were moved in, we had neighbors in our yard, walking in between our cars, 2-5 years old children running down the street until 9p.m.-10p.m.. The day we moved in, my girlfriend was to meet Heather for the keys at a time both specified and agreed upon, when my girlfriend showed up, Heather was no where to be seen. After 15 minutes of waiting, my girlfriend called and Heather could not make it, not informing either myself or my girlfriend. Finally, later that day my girlfriend was let into the unit we were signing for and there was literally human crap in the toilet...one of the workers had crapped in the toilet while the water was shut off and left it. There were cockroaches everywhere both live and dead, the fridge and oven were in the garage uncleaned. THIS PLACE IS A JOKE AND SO IS THE MANAGEMENT! DO NOT RENT FROM THEM! THERE ARE BETTER PLACES TO RENT FROM!

***IF YOU DO RENT FROM THEM, DOCUMENT and TAKE PICTURES OF EVERYTHING WRONG! DOCUMENT DOCUMENT DOCUMENT! I could sit here and read off the pages that we took of this place, but these bitches are not worth my time except this rating.***

Wow....I thought I was the only one getting this treatment. Kading Properties is the worst place I have lived. I lived here for 2 weeks and already know this. I've experienced everything on this wall of complaints. They are very poorly managed, even the tenant that shows the houses and gives out the leases in my area has called the main office girl an air head. I moved in thinking this was a amazing deal for college and that these house were very nice...but that was to much to ask. I was showed a duplex that was cleaned and painted very well and everything in perfect order that I was supposed to be moved into...well that didn't happen. I was moved into a duplex that wasn't cleaned whatsoever. I had to re-paint the walls since the idiots used satan paint over semi gloss. I had to carpet clean everything and the water that I got out of them was black and moldy!!! On top of all this they failed to mention that a water main broke in the back bedroom and flooded the entire place but just let it air dry out and with a shop vac. One of the corners of the house smells like the people living here used it as a bathroom. The yard was torn up with dirt spots everywhere. These guys demanded cash or money order only without receipts back! We had to ask for it. They also handed me a lease that they whited out from previous use!!!!!!! Are these guys really this cheap? Another thing before I moved here that I heard about was they sprayed the grass with chemicals and didn't tell anyone or put signs up...week later everybody's dogs pissing and crapping blood with vomiting and diarrhea. That is animal cruelty!....I would love to hear other peoples complaints about this so email me at jb6075@hotmail.com

Kading Properties are the worst people to rent from. The duplexes are poorly built and they build them so fast that things arent put together right!! I pay $660 for mine, and the foundation is coming apart. AND THESE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE BRAND NEW!! Some of the properties i've seen, there is barely any room to drive your car in and out! Also, the dumb bitch (landlord), harrasses you and acts like you're a piece of crap cuz her daddy (the real owner) pays for everything of hers! Ugh.......just please please dont rent from these people!!!

These places have to be the worst built places ever. I don't know how they passed building inspections. It is impossible to find a stud in the walls, and in some corners there are no studs at all. The tile floors are not level and some tiles sit higher than others. There was also grout all over all of the tiles, and they said that it would eventually wear off, one year later and still there. It is like they expect you to fix all of their crappy work if you want to have a decent home to live in. When you walk on the carpet if you step where there is a tack strip be prepared for it to get you in the foot. They say that the wall air conditioner is big enough and powerful enough to cool the unit, however it is not you have to run it constantly and have tons of fans going to get this accomplished, and since the windows and doors leak air like no other prepare for a huge energy bill. You can see daylight through the top of the door when it is closed and you can stick your finger through the gap. So if you want a crap hole to live in and high energy bills then this is the place for you. Otherwise, run, run, run as fast as you can.

These places have to be the worst built places ever. I don't know how they passed building inspections. It is impossible to find a stud in the walls, and in some corners there are no studs at all. The tile floors are not level and some tiles sit higher than others. There was also grout all over all of the tiles, and they said that it would eventually wear off, one year later and still there. It is like they expect you to fix all of their crappy work if you want to have a decent home to live in. When you walk on the carpet if you step where there is a tack strip be prepared for it to get you in the foot. They say that the wall air conditioner is big enough and powerful enough to cool the unit, however it is not you have to run it constantly and have tons of fans going to get this accomplished, and since the windows and doors leak air like no other prepare for a huge energy bill. You can see daylight through the top of the door when it is closed and you can stick your finger through the gap. So if you want a crap hole to live in and high energy bills then this is the place for you. Otherwise, run, run, run as fast as you can.

Pros: NONE

Cons: Cheap Carpet, Poorly Constructed,

My mother and I have been pleased with our townhouse unit. We were treated wonderful by Heather and the staff. Each time I've called with a question or concern it has been addressed immediately! I'm sure that wherever you go that there will always be the good and the bad, but I have to say after reading many of the bad reviews that the lease clearly stated what we could and couldn't have and also before becoming a tenant that we were given the opportunity to see the unit and to read the lease. It's kind of hard to complain after knowing this and being given the option on whether or not to become a tenant.

The only problem thereafter is the fact that the neighbor has a dog and I own no pets. The neighbor expects me to be kind enough to allow their pet to be on my door step whenever it choses. I talked to the neighbor and I talked to Heather and it was quickly addressed. The lawn has been mowed every week on the same day. While I don't like the parking and the street gets crowded, it was told to us in advance whereas I can't complain about something that I knew about. If I do have a problem, then I am quite aware of my rights as a tenant and as with any rental agreement: Tenants should always secure themselves by taking pictures, doing things in writing, and reading the fine print. That is why the Tenant/Landlord laws exist and they are easily accessible.

I'm more comfortable knowing that I'm aware of my rights and I've also not had anything major happen since my tenancy began months ago.

Cons: Storage space/ Visitor Parking/ Neighbor Issues

So we moved in 3yrs ago and at first yeah it was great.. Then all of a sudden they moved in a ton of section 8 low lifes and druggies... Apartments were being raided for drugs a pedifile moved in across the street and they allow all of this.. I took a mowing job for them and mowed 3 big complexes which took all day to do and they only paid me $100 to do so.. I also installed new tile through out an apartment and help Dan will a bunch of work.. Then yesterday Heather came over and bitched about my 2yr old daughter"s 6 inch deep swimming pool. Then told me that i couldn"t keep my 10 week old boxer puppy cuz its a pit bull... i informed her that it was not a ptbull, it is a boxer and then told her of 4 tenants who have actuall pitbulls and 2 which are very mean, and Heather informed me to worry about my self.. I got a letter today in the mail saying i have 3 days to get the pitbull which is a boxer out of here, so again i told her it was a boxer and not a pitbull and about the neighbors pit that chased a girl up the street trying to attack her and that Dan the maintanace man had seen this pitbull and didnt make them get rid of it..... so what iam trying to say is i would not let my biggest enemy move into these shitty slumlords apts. and suggest finding another place to live... we also have mold growing and a hole above our shower that has been there for monthes because they are to lazy to fix anything...And when my girlfriend called Kerry to collect the rest of the money they owe us for mowing she called her a drug addicted and said if she was called again she would press charges on us. Heather yesterday stated we wouldn't get paid at all unless we signed a paper stating we would move out! Since when do you have to sign anything to get paid for a job that has already been done.They now have plans in the works to evict us after this month (since we are already paid) for no reason. We have done nothing wrong to desrve this and you better believe we are going to fight this all the way through court! We have no plans on staying here but we are not going to let them get away with this horrible treatment and bullying! DO NOT EVER MOVING INTO ANY OF THESE APARTMENTS!!! YOU WILL PAY TOO MUCH MONEY FOR A LITTLE APARTMENT, NO YARD AND BE TREATED HORRIBLY!

We moved in august. Let me tell you things started from the begining. We were told that we were getting a unit that was clean and very nice. We signed lease there and everything was great till we came with the moving truck the next morning and were told that the unit was already taken and we were getting a different one. No big deal right... WRONG!!! the unit we got has missing things not cleaned at all and we were told that the lease we signed was a mistake by them and that some one else had already moved in. So here we were cleaning our unit and had already paid a deposit. As time goes on things get worse our children can't play outside because neighborhood dogs and children running wild with knives and air guns. About January our tub wouldn't drain and it leaked. We tried everything even the stuff the wonderful maintanence man left on our door step one morning before 5 a.m. when my husband got home from work. It didn't work finally two months later we hired a plumber ourselves which yes we deducted from our rent and they are still b*tching about. Our children have had nothing but respitory problems. We have a friend who is a contractor and we had him come in to look at the place and yes there is mold everywhere. Our attic insulation is only about 2 inches thick if even and is black. Our walls have black stuff above the heaters and behind the dryer and yes it is mold no soot like they say it is. I mean come on how stupid do they think we are soot does not come from electric heaters and electric dryers. We have talked to about 10 tennets down here and all of them say they have "soot" above their heaters. All I have to say is if you are desprate and don't care about your family and their well being welcome to Kading if you do run and run fast far away

I have also had a great experience with Kading Properties. My mother moved into a Kading Properties unit in Newton when she had to sell her home. She did not want to move into a nursing home so we found a nice place that would take her and her dog. Not alot of places allow pets and Kading Properties understands the love of pets. They went out of their way to make sure my mother was taken care of...out of their way to take her trash out, shovel her patio, pick up her rent, and even call me when they haden't seen any action there for a few days and they were worried she was sick! They worked with us on making paying rent easy with 2 payments and no late fee was ever added. Sometimes the girls would stop over (unannounced) just to visit with her. That made me feel she was taken care of and I would recommend Kading Properties to anyone.

Pros: Management And Office People Are Great

Cons: Renters That Ruin It For Us Good Tenants

I have lived here for a little over 2 months now, the management seems to be very friendly. I think for the price its a great place, I have looked at other apartments in the same prince range and they were complete dumps, so I was excited to find something that didn't look overly lived in. I guess I don't understand all the bad reviews..I have never had a problem with anyone showing up unannounced, not that I would care if they did I don't have anything to hide and I have a clean place.

we have been here in perry for only 7 months and have had so many problems with the "manager" or caretaker here that we finally have had the police involved and all we got from the Kadings was a bunch of grief and was told that maybe we should move because of this. The homes here look nice but that is about all that is nice here.

Since we have moved into this place in Boone, we have been harassed on a nearly daily basis by the guy who drives around in his white truck making sure nobody breaks the rules. I finally called and told them that it had to stop, that even the landlord does not have the right to knock on our door constantly to tell us we needed to pick up a plastic bag that blew into our yard or asking if we knew anything about such-and-such that happened in the neighborhood. Instead of an "I'm sorry, we'll stop it," I got a whole lot of rudeness, threats of eviction and when I told them that I had passed the bar this year and very well knew the law on landlord harassment and retaliatory eviction, the woman on the phone threatened "to call whoever hands out bar licenses and have [mine] revoked for not knowing the law and obeying it." I have recorded all this and we are looking for a new place to live, middle of lease or not. Avoid these "townhouses" at all cost!

We just moved in to Kading Properties, I have found the landlords and office people extremley helpful and not bothersome at all. being able to pay your rent via credit/debit is a huge benefit. i think prices are very reasonable. The units are uniform and made cheaply , trim isnt perfect, and it is pretty plain jane( no dishwasher, garbage disposal etc) but they really give you a lot of leaway for you to be able to personalize and make it your home, not just some place your renting. I enjoy the attached garage and single home entrance.

Pros: great town, and neighborhood,friendly people, nice looking

Cons: cheaper made

Kading Properties are very proud of these cheaply built duplexes they own in various small towns around IA. (Grinnell, Madrid, Perry, Boone...) You will be left annoying little notes of the priveleges of owning a pet and where you can store your grill. The rent is high, and every expense was spared in construction. All I can say is beware of the trademark battleship grey with poorly finished drywall. Blue and white townhomes for rent sign is a good sign to keep looking. Hope you find somewhere else to live.

Pros: Space, but no storage

Cons: Crowded noisy, cheaply built, annoying landlords

These places may look good in pictures and from the outside but, live in one for a while and deal with the land lords you will be singing a different tune. It is my opinion that the material they use is the cheapest they can find and trim work looks to be poor workmanship. High rent, and high expectations of renters but, little expectations of they're work poor lawn care and poor snow removal and people in office are rude and slow to fix things. I would never rent from this company again and would tell anybody that asks me about them not to. Rent at your own risk be ready to fight tooth and nail for deposit even willing to take them to court. I am curious how many people git a deposit back from this company.

When we notified them that we were moving out is when the trouble started. Two weeks into the notice, they started wanting to show the unit with little to no notice. When we called to complain about it, they said that they wouldn't charge us anything more if we kept our mouth shut. Then they called me a "brat" since I knew what I was talking about. I wouldn't suggest anyone renting from them. Esp. since they don't know the Landlord/Tenant laws themselves.

Thats when they started showing the appartment with little to no notice. We moved out and cleaned and scrubbed and were out by midnight feb 28 new tennant moved in the next day. 30 days later we git a letter charging us for stuff we already did and took pictures of ,and the letter was charging us for stuff they never did.

I would suggest to anybody never rent from this company. still fighting for deposit.

I have just moved in approx. 1 month ago.Had no other option so had to move here.It wasnt 1 week and Heather stopped uninvited , without even calling me, wanting to show the place...The tile is broken,in the kitchen and bathroom due to poor workmanship. This place should be investigated by HUD!!! The person who answers the phone at the office is a liar and is very rude and inconsiderate.If you are reading this, RUN as fast as you can!!!
