Wife and I have lived in some nice, modern garden apartments for nearly two years. Last year, we wound up having twins. In the past few months, the management have gone out of their way to make living here hell. We live on the third floor of a walkup. Already a pain. With kids, more a pain. We kept our stroller downstairs on the first floor, where other people in the building keep theirs. Now, the thing to keep in mind, is that cranky old geezers run these complexes. I had heard rumors that they don't like young families with kids, but I didn't believe it. Moving on... I got a call there was a complaint about my stroller. They told me I had to keep it in my apartment. I explained that we have twins, and it is a pain to carry both a stroller and kids up and down three floors. Woman on the phone said that strollers can't be kept in the hallway. I asked why other people can keep their own, and she said that there was a complaint about MY stroller and I had to move it. I didn't fight, and I moved it. Then the management calls asking when my wife won't need her temporary handicap parking spot anymore. She had complications during surgery when the kids were born, and had problems getting around. They HOUNDED us until she finally cleared a physical. I started leaving my stroller, in the same spot the other strollers were kept, and again the same person in management told me to move it. I then told her I would keep it on the third floor, but put it where I wanted it. I even got the town fire inspector to back me up on that. She then made a comment of not leaving it on a balcony and I thought that was a strange strange request. I asked her why would I leave it in a place where it could get damaged by weather? She responded with... "you young people think you can do whatever you want." Well, that proved that rumor true. There are notices constantly about appearances and them changing the rules almost monthly. These people want where I live to look like a retirement community in Florida. I live in NJ, trust me, it's anything but. Then they allowed smokers to move into a non-smoking building. I complained, and management said they will do NOTHING about it. Our washing machine broke. Three times. Three times they send a repairman while someone else in the building (an older gentleman) got a new machine. Our lease is up at the end of June. A month or so ago, I called about renewals and reiterated the problems and told them I won't pay any rent increase until the problems are taken care of. In response, I got a letter in the mail this week stating that they are not interested in renewing our annual lease and we have until the end of our term to vacate. Basically "get the hell out." I have twin girls, a year old. This just is not right. The upside is that through connections we are getting a place much larger and for less than what we pay now. I am mad. I am angry, and it seems like there was nothing I can do but move. I hate being stuck in these situations and it really bums me out to feel like I have been bullied. The good news is that we are moving to a better place. But moving a family of four in a rush? Not pleasant at all. It is aggravating and really sucks. I know the answer is "deal with it and move on" but I figured I could get some sort of positive feedback here. Maybe there is something I can do which I did not think of before.
