Complaint Review: Morgan Properties
Morgan Properties Morgan Properties, Montgomery Woods Townhomes Hands-down, the worst rental experience ever. King of Prussia Pennsylvania
I'm not one to write reviews but hopefully this will help others before they waste their money. MORGAN PROPERTIES IS BY FAR THE WORST RENTAL COMPANY ON THE EAST COAST. I WILL NEVER RENT FROM THEM AGAIN NOR WOULD I EVER RECOMMEND THE COMPANY TO ANYBODY. In fact, NOT ONLY WOULD I NOT RECOMMEND MORGAN PROPERTIES, I WOULD ACTIVELY ATTEMPT TO DISSUADE ANYBODY WHO CONSIDERS ANY OF THEIR PROPERTIES WHEN SEARCHING FOR A RENTAL.
We've rented in PA for about 4 years now and will be moving when our lease is up next month. Morgan Properties is nothing more than a greedy big business and they run their complexes like such. They're crooks. The rent is way too high for the outdated kitchen and moldy bathtub.
Most recently, they've added "Reserved Parking" placards to the parking spot closest to the unit sidewalks. I wouldn't have a problem with this, if they were actually reserved. Instead of putting them up when somebody decides to pay the $25/month fee for the spot, the signs were placed before anything was reserved. So now, for the past two weeks this empty parking spot has been unused and plowed, yet there's not very much parking elsewhere. MORGAN PROPERTIES DOES NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR CLIENTS. They would rather have an empty spot that nobody pays for or uses than leave it open. In my situation this is especially disconcerting considering that I'm 5 months pregnant and I have to walk over patches of ice at night and potentially hurt myself or my unborn child because Morgan Properties is just that greedy. I spoke with on-site management about my concerns and they simply dismissed me and told me that if I'm really concerned then I should buy a parking spot.
On the topic of parking lots being plowed.... LOL yeah right. It never happens. That's probably why there are a shortage of spots in the winter; instead of clearing the spots, they push the snow around (if they even do anything at all) so that basically everybody is plowed into their spots and any open spaces are full of snow. It seems to get plowed every other snowfall, because I've been walking/driving over ice for the past week since MP is too cheap to adequately salt their roads. Or, maybe they just use it all on the steps, because when they do put down salt (rather, empty a bag of it on the stairs) it usually ends up being tracked into our house. So I either slip on the ice or slip on the piles of little round road salt beads.
When the landscapers use leaf blowers, they blow it into the door and dirt usually comes through the wide gap in our front door. The wide gap that has been there for three years, because the property manager doesn't think it's an issue despite watching a beetle crawl through it. The whole building was constructed so poorly that I've often gotten stuck in my house during the winter because the door frames were so poorly placed and the door just gets stuck in the frame and won't budge.
Two days after our neighbors moved in, their kitchen flooded because of dry rot in the floorboards below the bathroom. One would think that MP would have somebody inspect the townhouse floor to ceiling between tenants but evidently the safety of their renters isn't much of a concern to them.
The caulking around our tub seems to have been done by an amateur as it has separated from the shower wall. Despite the visible mold, our property manager still does not see it as a problem. I'm sure they'll try to charge it to our security deposit when we leave though...
One of the screens in our windows was ripped so I called about them replacing it. They took down the ripped one but never replaced the screen.
The building materials they used during construction were cheap and it shows in the cabinets and drawers that have separated from the hinges and in the floor tiles that aren't cut correctly. I can keep going but hopefully if you've read this far, you've changed your mind.
TL;DR: NEVER RENT FROM MORGAN PROPERTIES. They don't care about their customers, they care about meeting their bottom line. Athletes and journalists at the Sochi Olympics probably have better accommodations and they don't even have to pay for it.
