Renting in Oak Park, IL -some helpful links

When moving into Oak Park, Il or anywhere else you need to be on your toes regarding the rental process. Below I have added some links to the apartment.com’s website regarding the rental process. What questions you should ask normally, an apartment checklist to things you should do when you move out. Because Oak Park, IL will make you do that, move out.

I would also research or ask about:

The parking conditions in the area. This is serious because if you do not know the parking restrictions in the area of your new place you can easily rack up 50 to 150 dollars’ worth in tickets.

The demographics of your neighbors. Families will tell you how busy the area will be. Seniors will tell you how quiet you need to be and how much intrusiveness you can expect on your daily life when you are entering or exiting the public domain.

Here are the articles I aforementioned above:

Faulty locks thanks to Oak Park Apartments started this blog

I managed to get my buddy Ma to record what was wrong with my door locks a while back because honestly, I just thought I would just report it to Greenplan Management and poof it would be fixed. Unfortunately, as I stated previously it did not work out that way, and he thought I should video tape the issue just in case. I had him do it because I did not want my hands, voice, anything in the video to identify me… paranoid, right???

So I could post on YouTube to warn other potential renters on what to look for when choosing an apartment or to have just in case I needed evidence that the lock was faulty if there was a break in. Then I lost the freaking video! Well, Ma told me he has it and I will post it up here soon either in a post or I will just edit this one and add it here.

When a key lock is movable it means that it is not securely screwed into the lock. Well if you are trying to get in at night or out of your apartment in a hurry, this could be a problem. Having a lock that works properly is of great importance, whether you are male, female, a couple or a family. You should have the peace of knowing that you are secure in your place or home. This was a key issue that Green plan management (Oak Park Apartments) forgot about with their shitty maintenance, Oh, I did not forget nor did my friend who recorded the video, I do not care if it gets 10 views or 10,000 so long as it is out there as prove of my claims and to show that I am bitchy for a REASON!

There is always cause and effect in the universe and you do not need to be Einstein nor be able to theorize the existence of the Universe to figure that truth out. This blog about Oak Park, Il was born out of something and this is where it started with these damn locks, so Oak Park, IL if you hate me and my blog redirect that shit onto Green Plan Management because they were the patron, the Latin meaning of the word, not the drink (which is fucking good by the way!), of all this, this the blog, my attitude, everything is upon them. All it took was one lazy ass nudge and bamm a monster was born.
