HORRIBLE and DISHONEST. This was hands down the worst rental experience I have ever had. Maintenance took weeks to months to even get someone out to look at issues (there were many), and we had to file maintenance requests several times before anyone responded. One of the biggest issues was our heating/ac system, which, while running us about $200/month in gas and electric, still could not cool our apartment below 90 degrees in the summer or heat it above 55-60 in the winter. Someone came out to look at it a few times, but nothing was ever fixed and it made being in our own home virtually unbearable. Other safety hazards that were very obvious and were either ignored or deliberately decided against fixing by our landlord included our crumbling staircase up to our front door, which had a pile of cement that had fallen off in massive chunks beneath it, leaking roof that caused our next door neighbors’ ceiling to collapse, rotting under our kitchen sink and under the carpet (they stuffed newspapers and plywood under the carpet to try and mask it), and windows that were unable to open and close properly, leaving us with an open window that had no screen for several days, until we were finally able to get help to close it ourselves. Also, in January 2023, a winter storm broke half of the rain gutter off of the roof, and it hung off of the roof, literally swinging in the wind, for 3 months before they fixed it. When we finally decided to move after a year and a half of horrible management and living conditions that were affecting our health, we were EASILY able to find somewhere to live that was a comparable price (and ended up being less when you include utilities). In our contract with Joseph Thomas, it said that they would mail back our security deposit and the rent from the rest of our last month’s rent 30 days after new tenants moved in. Over 30 days went by, and we didn’t see any check. We called, and they said that they didn’t have our new address, so they had mailed a check to our previous address (this is illegal), and that they would have to wait at least 60 days for the check to expire before they could try and mail a new one. This was all a lie. We had already forwarded our mailing address with USPS and had received nothing, and so my husband knocked on the new tenants’ door and they had also not received it. We had also given them our new address 3 separate times BEFORE WE MOVED (through text, email, and in our official “intent to move” documents) and had the written receipts as well as a written confirmation from them, over text, with screenshots, that they had, in fact received our new address. It seemed like they were incapable of, or unwilling to, call the bank and cancel this check, which was worth over $1000 that they claim was sent the wrong address. My husband tried to call and get the checking number, check amount, address it was sent to, date it was sent, and names of people it was sent to, and Joseph Thomas would or could not provide it. They told him they would call back later with details, and never did. When we tried to call them, they did not answer. This made us question if there was ever a check. We looked up the rental laws for Utah and learned that they were in violation of several, so we went to their office and said that if they did not pay us in the next five days, in full, we would take them to small claims court. Less than six hours later, a direct deposit was made into our account, in full, minus some ridiculous cleaning fees. We had spent hours cleaning, as well as meticulously maintained the apartment while living there, only to be charged almost $200 in previously undisclosed cleaning fees. They also charged $170 us for carpet cleaning, when they had told us that they would not have time to clean the carpets between tenants, and did not clean before we moved in as well. There are so many better, more honest, and reliable places. Please don’t waste your time or money.
Before i bought my own place - I lived here and asked their maintenance person to come out to fix the heater in the winter. While they fixed the heater, they also went ahead and replaced the filter and charged me for it. I never asked them to replace the filter, but they did it and charged me without asking. I argued with customer service to get that refunded but they refused. They also raised my rent every year I was there. If you choose to live at one of their properties, you can count on them trying to nickel and dime you whenever the opportunity arises.
I, personally, had a positive experience here! I think the housing is realistically priced for Provo and provided sufficient parking for its tenets. Michelle and Benjamin are always very prompt with addressing issues that come up with apartment related problems. Probably the best management I’ve had during my 5 years in Provo.
Michelle helped me with my housing and she was beyond helpful! She is super quick to respond and she answered all my questions. Overall she was very helpful and made this process so easy! Super appreciative of the whole process!
Kathryn is the most amazing manager ever! She is always quick to respond and helps resolve any issues that arise quickly and with much appreciated communication and kindness. The owners did a great job hiring her to manage Parkside, because of her specifically, it makes it a great place to live.
