 Orrin Williams has lived at MountCrest apartments for almost fifteen years. He says the complex was a mess. Williams said, "There was nothing getting done, everything was at a standstill, everything was just sitting there."

Until a new management group came in, and bought the bank-owned property. That's when Williams said they started "Painting, getting stuff done that needed to be done years ago."

But allegations have been circulating, from some people who live there. Claiming the management office isn't fixing things when they break, and are charging ridiculous amounts for water bills. Williams says he has never seen that.

 Management sat down with Fox 46, and said they are trying to turn this property around, slowly but surely. Assistant Manager Joe Gutierrez addressed a lot of the complaints. Gutierrez said "When you buy a property from the bank, all they do is maintain the property at the level they bought them, and sell off that property."

Code enforcement has been out to the property about seven times. For things like broken windows, soft floors, and spots that need to be painted.
