DO NOT MOVE IN HERE!! – I have lived in numerous apartment complexes, and Saint Andrews Commons in Columbia SC is BY FAR THE WORST. I have never written a bad review of an apartment complex, but I feel compelled to warn people not to move in there. First, they charge you 4 dollars a month "service charge" every month, and a larger service charge your first month (be sure to read the entire lease, it's in there). Second, the water and sewage bills were outrageous every month. (As an example, my final bill for my last month of water was over $120). Third, I never felt safe walking to my apartment; the neighborhood was poorly lit. Fourth, the walls are paper thin. You can hear everything that is going on in the adjacent apartment. Fifth, the electric bills (due to the high ceilings) are abnormally high; however, the staff will tell you they are exceptionally low. The gates never work. Overall, this was my worst experience ever.
I must admit that feel in love with this apartment community at first. Then I moved in filled out the walk through form to indicate the issues w/ my unit upon moving in. The Management Team gives you 30 days to fill it out and return it. no more than two weeks later all the cosmetic cover ups done by maintenance will be revealed. Twice I had to email their corporate office to get results. After transferring to a different unit over a year later I had the same exact issue in that unit. ,,,,cosmetic cover-ups are revealed. again I had to contact th corporate office for results. Anything that needed repairing was again....repaired for a couple of months at the latest. For the cost off all the amenities......that constantly need repairs also. IT IS NOT WORTH IT. This community I lived in for 4 years change never came. Please seek other opportunities. The nice and sweet ladies in the office even know better than to live here at a discounted rate. THANK GOD I AM LEAVING!
