RentLingo Editor's Review
We sent a former property manager to investigate

Huge 700+ unit complex that was actually two sister properties that merged into one. They are beautifully landscaped and sit up against the mountain preserve. Units themselves are very roomy but do not have upgraded features such as granite counters or stainless steel. Upgraded packages are available for additional charge but still only include faux-granite laminate counter tops. Pros include: This property is in a absolutely beautiful setting. It has mountain and city views and the desert preserve right on its door-step. Units come with valet waste service five nights per week. On the down side, apartments do not have top-quality features such as granite counter tops or stainless steel appliances. The complex is so large it could be quite a hike to the office, as well as possibly getting maintenance service when needed. Tips: Second floor units have fireplaces. Watch out: Office at NE end of property, so SW units are quite far away.

“Fine apartments, predatory and incompetent management”

Kota North Scottsdale has (reasonably) nice apartments and is a fine place to live generally, but their predatory business practices and general incompetence make this place a nightmare to deal with. Despite having moved out on October 15th, we are still struggling with dealing with surprise move out charges. Despite having thoroughly cleaned the apartment (with photos to prove it) we were charged $55 for a 'partial cleaning fee' and $165 for 'carpet restoration'. The office was unable to produce a single shred of evidence justifying either expense (and quickly removed the partial cleaning fee when challenged), but now refuses to answer or return calls to resolve the bulk of the erroneous charges.

A couple of tips for people who are desperate enough to live here:

1. Demand a move out inspection. In writing. If they refuse, they lose any standing to charge any damage-related move-out fees. We made the mistake of asking for an inspection in person, which we can't prove.

2. DO NOT SIGN THE MOVE OUT FORM. You are signing away some of your rights with regards to regular wear and tear of the apartment. You can't be compelled to sign it, and they can't prevent you from moving out despite it.

3. GET IT IN WRITING. None of your in-person conversations with office staff count for anything if you can't prove it, and they sure are good at forgetting.

4.TAKE PHOTOS BEFORE YOU MOVE OUT. Seriously, this is a life saver.
