RICHLAND HEIGHTS, Ohio (WOIO) - After years of hearing nothing but broken promises, Linda Williams is fed up with management at her apartment complex.

“We have a dishwasher that never works ever since we have been here. We are having water problems. Either it hot water or cold or no water at all,” said Williams.

Williams and her daughter, Davina Goodrum, feel violated by the multitude of problems inside their Richmond Heights apartment.

Never in their six years of living at the 444 Luxury Park Apartments, have they ever been treated so poorly.

A building that once used to shine is now a shadow of its former self.

“First off when we first moved in they promised us a new dishwasher and carpet and as you can see we haven’t had brand new carpet,” said Goodrum.

When one tours the Goodrum apartment, it appeared many repairs have been forgotten or not even addressed.

Many of the closet sliding doors are either broken or not on the framing.

A massive hole is in the bathroom ceiling while mold appears to laced within the shower.

“They are neglecting me and first of all this is about the fourth or fifth persons they have owned this apartment complex,” said Goodrum.

To be fair, 19 News went straight to management with their complaints.

We were told that they consider the area private property and we needed to leave immediately.

After doing some digging we discovered RHM Management is the owner of record, however they have not yet responded to my questions.

Now, as the clock slowly ticks towards a possible eviction, the family just wants their monies worth for the over $1200 a month they pay.

In fairness, they recognize the dilemma that management may be in during these trying times of the pandemic.
