From reading this thread there must have been an ape infestation there too.

re: Fairway View Apartment Complex - Baton Rouge


I befriended the maintenance guy because he'd come in to the HVAC supply shop where i worked during the summer in college. We heard about all kinds of bull shite that was going on before it got sold. On the flip side, if I needed anything fixed, I called him directly rather than going through the inept people in the office.

After it was sold, my rent went up to something stupid, like $651 a month. I wrote my check the first month for $650 by mistake. Two weeks later, I got home and had an eviction notice on my door. I went to the office asking why the hell they cashed my check and sent me an eviction notice. The girl at the desk said I short paid my rent and got shitty with me, even after she informed me i was short by one dollar. I pulled a dollar bill out of my wallet and slammed it on the desk. The manager came over after seeing what happened, looked at the computer, looked at the girl, and apologized profusely to me for the inconvenience.

My wife and I bought a house and moved out before the end of my lease. My rent was going up $256. frickers still kept my security deposit because my wife was incapable of properly filling out the apartment damage checklist when she moved in.

re: Fairway View Apartment Complex - Baton Rouge


After my company moved our IT dept from Nola to BR after Katrina I had two options in all of BR that had openings. Fairway View and Place Du Plantier. Owned by same group. I ended up in Place Du Plantier. Holy shite that was a horrible place.

The managment changed 2 months later and they went from auto debit which was in my lease to no auto debit. They had a notice that we could pay by the 5th until they changed programs. I paid on the 1st the first month after the change then on the second month they still didnt have the systems up and the 1st fell on a Sunday. I paid them on the monday the 2nd and they refused to cash the check and tried to force me to pay an insane late fee amount for not paying on a sunday even though their letter said we had until the 5th. They said that only applied to the 1st month which was supposed to be obvious. I was furious. They only did 12 month leases too. The carpet was 10+ years old and they charged me to replace it when I moved out because I had a dog. Carpet was in exact same condition as when I moved in which to say was horrible. Worst management company I have ever dealt with. I was almost 30 at the time and they treated everyone there with the disrespect you normally see provided to college kids only.

Did you rape somebody with a pistol? Shoot a skateboarder? Sell oxycontin out of the bar? Eat all the crawfish in 15 minutes? Steal multiple vehicles out of a parking lot? And did you wait for the light to turn green to cross the street?

If so, then maybe it's safe to move back in now

The owner is a friend of mine and he didn't burn it down. He had just bought it a few months earlier. In fact he wanted to rebuild but that group of nurses that bought the complex wouldn't allow it.

I considered moving there in 2003 when I moved back to BR due to there being a bar on premises. It was nothing like what you are describing and the bar was a cool place if you like dives.

I lived there for a few months in late 2000. It was pretty bad--even back then. I was single and just starting law school, so I basically left at daybreak and returned every night after 10. The eight hours I spent there every night was filled with loud music and noisy neighbors. There were at least 2 armed robberies while I was there (as reported by the management), and neighbors on both sides of me had their places burglarized. I was a happy S.O.B. to get outta there alive.

I lived here for about two years, and I would never go back or recommend it to anyone. People's cars were regularly broken into. I had one of the ugliest cars in the lot, so I never had any issues. People's apartments were also broken into regularly. One of my neighbors was a drug dealer, and people were in and out of his apartment all day. Besides the convenience of being relatively close to LSU and near the interstate, there is absolutely no reason to live at this place.

Yea. The managers asked me to mark on my wall with permanent marker everywhere I heard them. I was like "keep the marker, that's easy...if you see a wall, I heard them there."

They said "mark them anyway"

So I got pissed and made my apartment an art project on every wall and roof -RAC HEARD HERE!!!!
