DO NOT PARK HERE


Word of advice for anyone looking for an apartment in Fremont, California; DO NOT MOVE HERE.

I am so pissed. Last week we got a notice posted on both doors at the front of our building saying that they would be repaving the drive way on September 22nd. Actually, more specifically, it reads as follows:

MONDAY SEPTEMBER 22, 2008 BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 8:00 - 6:00 PM

THE ASPHALT WILL BE REPAIRED AND REPLACED. RESIDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO MOVE THEIR CARS FROM ANY HIGHLIGHTED AREA BEFORE THIS TIME. ANY CARS STILL PLACED IN ANY UNCOVERED SPOT WILL BE TOWED AT THE OWNER OF THE VEHICLE'S EXPENSE.

WATERSTONE SUGGESTS PARKING YOUR CAR ON LESLIE, BIDWELL, FREMONT BLVD. OR SUNDALE DURING THIS TIME.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING.

Guess what happened!? They towed the Trans Am. I went to the office and saw a stack of Mapquested directions to the tow yard. I spoke with the manager and she said that everyone was notified of the parking situation. Then she pulls out another notice that was posted after the first one. Two days later to be precise.


NO PARKING!!!

We would like to first apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause you. On Monday, September 22, 2008 from 7:30 AM to 6:00 PM you will not be able to park your vehicle if you park in spot numbers 1 to 98, 1D to 26D, 538 to 551, 414 to 431, 55C to 68C, 273 to 373, and 1B to 40B. We will be repairing the asphalt on the community and we will be sealing and stripping on September 29th and 30th and October 2nd and 3rd. A second notice will follow for the dates and parking numbers that will be included in the 4 day seal and stripe.

If you do not move your car by 7:30 AM you will be towed at your own expense. If you fail to remove your car you may call AA Wheat Tow at 510-972-1900 to make arrangements to pick up your vehicle. Please keep in mind that it will be a minimum charge of $295.00 that you will have to pay in-order to have your vehicle released.

We cannot stress the importance of this to you and we will not reimburse anyone for not removing their vehicle. You may park on the street until the work is complete. We do not have any other parking area in which you may move your vehicle on the property.

If you have any questions please feel free to call the office at 510-656-7552.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding.

I did in fact get this notice. But to be completely honest, I didn't even realize it until after I talked to the manager. Why would a property management company take the time to go around the complex and post information, to only give new information 2 days later? As you can see, the second notice is quite different from the first notice. For the record, the Tans Am was park in a COVERED UN-HIGHLIGHTED SPACE. I feel they should have made more of an attempt to let residents know. As a result, we have to pay $380 to get the car out of the tow yard. And I'm sure that fee will continue to increase if we don't get it out tomorrow.

Moral of the story, this apartment complex BLOWS and I can't wait to get the f**k out of here. I wish we could do it right now.
