slum lord! Never sent me a copy of my lease, probably because a lease copy is required in the event you want to take them to court. He is also doing the least possible to eradicate a bed bug infestation in the building, and when people want to break the lease to avoid the physical and psychological trauma of bed bugs, he refuses. He also hires mediocre help who do shotty work, or sometimes no work at all. Winters are especially cold do to little heat and poor insulation. Sometimes no hot water, especially towards the end of the month. ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING! Go elsewhere are be ready to live in horrible conditions.

Found a nice studio which was "totally new", surprising how crumbs and grease can get all over a new range, not to mention dirty bathroom and chips to walls and trim paint.

Had no heat for 3 weeks in Dec., due to a broken radiator, which my downstairs neighbor reported last year, way before i arrived. it leaked and collapsed a portion of her ceiling. I am now paying them when I feel it is due! Since they automatically charge you a late fee, but we don't get bills until after the due date. Another filthy money grubber!!!

Never pay these "people" last months rent, stick it to them. If they have a problem they will find the kitchen on 2nd Ave. fair is fair, but I will not put up with this firm anymore. If you have problems with this company or their buildings, just move and stick them for what you can.

We made application for an apt that we knew was available and could not get the leasing people to respond at all. we were very qualified and I had to find his name and call him direct.He was rude and pushed me off on some other employee. It is obvious that the slumlord mentality is prevailing. The building that we were interested in (where we have a friend) has gone down significantly in cleanliness and maintenance so we're actually glad we didn't get that apt.

ABSOLUTELY DO NOT. NOT. NOT. NOT. NOT. RENT FROM ANY BUILDING OR APARTMENT ANYWHERE THAT IS OWNED BY BEACH LANE MANAGEMENT.

The staff is extremely rude, unresponsive, and either foreign or not very intelligent, and the moment you point out their lack of professionalism, they tell YOU that you are the one with a problem. Note: there should be negative stars for the rating, but that unfortunately is not an option.

The full back story is: in summer 2011, my two roommates and I graduated from the University of Pennsylvania and found building 274 West 19th Street and found a great apartment in an area we loved. 1) We were told we were signing a July 1 lease. When the lease came, it stated June 1 (this may have been the broker's fault, but I am still listing it here), 2) We were told the apartment would be fully cleaned/renovated, with the floors waxed, cracks fixed, walls painted etc. by June 5. This was different than what they had initially told us, which was everything would be ready by June 1, which is what we had told our respective subletters as we scrambled to find subletters for the first month, after we got a heck of a surprise from the lease. 3) The floors were dirty, bathroom tile cracked, doors didn't lock when my roommate and I moved in July 2011. We were starting to get upset at this point. We then nicely reached out to the "account manager", Terrance, at Beach Lane asking him to make the fixtures the Company said they would. Not only did it take MONTHS for the bathroom tile to be replaced, lights replaced, doors and cabinets fixed, they eventually told us they couldn't do the floors unless we moved out all of our furniture for 3 days. So our floors never got done, even to this day. 4) I was having technical problems with my direct deposit at BofA and called Beach Lane's "rent department", which apparently consists of 1 person named Desmond. He openly told me "there are so many checks every month...I lose a few every now and then". I thought that was completely unacceptable. 5) My roommate kept smelling cigarette smoke coming from the vent in her room. When she got an ear infection and the doctor told her a main cause could have been second-hand smoke, we contacted Terrance and Beach Lane about this. Not only did they completely not care about her well being/health and were unresponsive for weeks, they said nothing could be done about it and that was that. 6) Our third roommate is moving out, so we kindly asked if only her portion of the deposit could be mailed back to her, but this very rude and incompetent woman named Dana Schwartz said that no, all of the money has to be returned to her because when we sent in our deposits she got the "luck of the draw" and they put her name on their bank account. I became very upset and told her that we were never informed of this, and that I did not appreciate this lack of professionalism, especially after everything we had been put through. When I told her this she said "I am not communicating with you anymore" and forwarded our correspondence to someone named Mitch Rothken, who was equally if not more rude, saying "Every single piece of correspondence from you is self-serving, truculent, sarcastic, insulting, demeaning but, frankly, otherwise impertinent." I have the emails to attest this is false, and anyone reading this who doesn't believe me and is interested in reading the emails I will send to you.

I cannot believe this company is functioning the way it is. Though people may still unknowingly sign leases and rent with Beach Lane, I know that word of mouth will help anyone who has to deal with these complete baffoons to never rent from Beach Lane ever again. Their company WILL go down for this. Maybe not today, but in the near future yes, and I hope Dana and Mitch pay for their nasty actions. Karma is a b*tch.

Mark Scharfman & Beach Lane Management is the worst landlord I've ever had in the 20 years I've lived in New York City. I looked at an apartment that had stainless appliances/ granite countertops/ was a gut renovation. I immediately put an application in to hold the aparment when later that day Beach Lane claimed that it had been rented. They offered me another apartment at a comprable price and since I really needed to move I took it. WORSE DECISION of my life. I moved in and the first 2 nights there I couldn't even stay because there was no heat in January! I quickly learned that the super ONLY cleaned the lobby. He never sweptor mopped the upper floors. Tenants routinely left bags of garbage and dog feces in the hallway where it stayed for days. The laudry room was infested with rats. I called management several times about the heat and trash and they would fix it then a month or 2 would go by and it would be right back where we started.

Beach Lane Management is a greedy slumlord that only cares about MONEY. I paid my rent late ONCE by only ONE day and they hauled me into court. When I called them the two rude women I spoke to said they had no control over the matter and that it was generated by "the computer." It took me a month to rectify the matter AND they still tried to charge me attorney fees. After being in the apartment for 12 months (as a good tenant) I found out my 86 year old mother had Alzheimer's. I tried contacting them 5 times in the month of December to see if they had a larger apartment for my mother and I to share. They NEVER returned any of my phone calls. THEN they tried to evict me because I didn't sign a lease renewal. I tried to explain that even though they were an awful landlord I would rather move within their properties so I wouldn't have to go on an apartment search in this city. THEY REFUSED to even speak to me and took me to court for staying over my lease. The court gave me 6 months extension and after only 2 months Beach Lane tried to evict me a third time. Keep in mind I HAVE NEVER BEEN LATE paying rent. Beach Lane is a disgraceful, greedy, money hungry outfit that should be avoided at all costs. They are evil. Please do not rent from them!

I rented my first apartment from Beach Lane and the experience has been nothing but horrible. The Super doesn't answer his phone or return messages for days. When I called the management company I was disconnected the moment I said I had a complaint.

I went 3 days with no power, 2 with no hot water ( I was told no one else in the building had a problem--this wasn't true the boiler stopped working), my plumbing had backed up and the super never showed with a plumber. My boyfriend ended up fixing the pipes. Eight months have now gone by and as far as Beach Lane is concerned I still have no plumbing. After being there 8 months I found roaches. I understand that it is the city and there are bugs. It was the way it was handled on top of all the other problems. I called the super to ask for an exterminator I was told it was unnecessary to call one and to just spray Raid. I told Beach Lane that my attorney would be contacting them to break the lease. Afterwards they had an exterminator come. A few days later I saw the same exterminator coming for another apartment and he stated he had been called in multiple times over the last 4 months due to an infestation. I found more after being sprayed and called the super AGAIN. I was told that an exterminator was not be sent and that I should just make sure I cover all drains after use. I am so glad to get out of this apartment. I went to throw out garbage today and sure enough another one snuck under the door. Slumlords at their finest.

This is one of the worst business ever. You don't get heat when it's freezing. Alot of times there is no hot water. They only care about getting money and they don't have to live here, so they rent to anyone, even delinquents.

Jeff C. is Scharfman's employee, so don't be fooled by his positive comment. It just shows how sleazy and dishonest this whole company is (and beware, they operate under multiple names). One day they will all end up in jail where they belong.

Beach Lane Management is a horrible management company. Simply, the WORST management company ever. The staff are incompetent. They can't handle even the simplest of tasks, such as arranging a repair of an appliance or having an apartment cleaned before you move in.

They also will not communicate with you. Their emails will bounce because the staff changes over on a weekly basis. If you experience a problem, you will struggle to resolve it because you'll never communicate with the same person. If you're lucky to speak to a human people, chances are the person will be rude or a bad listener and not understand your complaint.

No one needs the headache of dealing with this management company and the slum king himself, Mark Scharfman.

I found Beach Lane Management very helpful, An independent real estate broker (not working for Beach Management) attempted to keep my sons application fee/deposit on an apartment. The apartment was already rented! The staff on Central Avenue got the broker on the phone, read the broker the riot act and the broker returned the money. Thanks
