The Eberly Company / Fraud and cheating
I lived in an apartment owned by The Eberly Company of Beverly Hills. This apartment was subpar considering the outrageous amount of money I was paying, but I had no other choice because I moved from another state and I needed an apartment close to work. I lived in the same unit for 27 months and the experience I have had with the Eberly Company has been the most horrible one of my whole life.
First of all, they didn't give me my deposit back because they claim that the carpet was damaged, but they ignored the fact that the whole building was infested by rats bigger than cats. I reported, we reported (with other tenants) this several times to the management but they turned a deaf ear. The rats destroyed part of the carpet and we, tenants, had to pay astronomical amounts of money for the extermination.
It was a living nightmare for months, the rats even destroyed the doors. The swimming pool was closed three times because of poor hygenical conditions. You couldn't sleep with the windows open because the trash cans were emptied once in a blue moon and all the garbage got rotten. It was a very unsafe place as even homeless use to hang out nearby.
They advertised a specific cable company and they took a percentage out of it.
All in all, that was the worst place to live and they sell it like it's a luxurious apartment complex. Beware. They have a building called Courtyard on Whitsett Avenue in North Hollywood. They won't tell you that there are roaches, rats, the swimming pool can't be used because of hygiene or lack thereof.
