I am posting this again because this same post I did the other day mysteriously did not show up show in certain alerts I have set up or in a search on my site’s URL. This has happened before. Apparently, if you are posting information about issues that harm people and are immersed in corruption and cover ups, you might find there are ways your site can be targeted to be censored by having the visibility of your posts severely restricted. This will not show up on the usual security alerts and scanning your computer will not remove the problem, though it can be corrected. katy
Thank You National Apartment Association. I will do my best to get this very important information out ASAP to numerous owners, investors, huge property management companies (e.g., Riverstone Residential), attorneys, and judges, AND, of course, to the MANY people who are currently living in MOLD-INFESTED APARTMENT COMPLEXES right now! katy

Rented: 2009 – 2010
The apartments themselves are beautiful, my roommate & I were very excited to have found this place & eagerly moved into our 2 bedroom 2 bath (Sheffield). We extensively searched the Tigard, Tualatin, Sherwood, Milwaukie, and South Portland areas before deciding on renting with Monterey Springs, a sorry mistake.
The apartment that we were told was being held for us was given away (a 3Bd overlooking the water feature), our promised leasing agreement was incorrect and defaulted in their behalf ($40 more per month), & although a parking space is “guaranteed” for each bedroom, in 10 months I have had to park over at the mall six times, & have been towed twice! Maintenence requests get serviced, but at sometimes a 1 & 1/2 week wait (you have to nag them until they get it done). I don’t even want to go into the mailing & package receiving problems I’ve encountered since living here.
Turnover in the leasing office seems high, & I have noted the same with Arcadia Patrol (the apt grounds security). I had a chatty Security Guard admit to being drunk on the job, witnessed the same guard meeting up with friends in the parking lot (who parked in a paying tenants spot no doubt), & have seen said guard knocking on tenant doors at 3am! (I work swing shift & come home between 2-4am so I have the pleasure of hearing & seeing the late night parties & having bored security personnel strike up conversations with me). Despite having a locking gate, & Arcadia Patrol their have been 2 tenant murders on apartment grounds, both incidents made local news.
Although Riverstone Residential claims to be trying to clean the place up, I still see garbage lying in the breezeways, cigarette butts up and down the stairs, & unkempt patio spaces. The worst and most insulting part of our experience here has been the attitude of the management. Aside from Lesley, the office staff is regularly misinformed & HIGHLY disorganized. As a kind, easy going, compliant, well paying & respectful resident, the attitudes that have been given me by staff here are insulting.
Information about Riverstone Residential, the Louisiana Housing Finance Agency, and the owners of Jefferson Lakes Apartments in Baton Rouge, Louisiana allowing tenants to be exposed to extreme amounts of toxins from molds by intentionally concealing evidence
Irrefutable evidence indicates that Riverstone Residential, Guarantee Service Team of Professionals, & plaintiffs’ attorney, J Arthur Smith III, must have agreed to exclude evidence that would have shown the owners of Jefferson Lakes Apartments & Riverstone Residential had knowledge of the severe MOLD INFESTATION at the complex before we moved in
Political Action Committee – National Apartment Association (NAA) files Amicus Brief in mold case (two infant deaths in mold filled apt – Wasatch Prop Mgmt) citing US Chamber/ACOEM ‘litigation defense report’ to disclaim health effects of indoor mold & limit financial risk for industry
“Changes in construction methods have caused US buildings to become perfect petri dishes for mold and bacteria to flourish when water is added. Instead of warning the public and teaching physicians that the buildings were causing illness; in 2003 the US Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform, a think-tank, and a workers comp physician trade organization mass marketed an unscientific nonsequitor to the courts to disclaim the adverse health effects to stave off liability for financial stakeholders of moldy buildings. Although publicly exposed many times over the years, the deceit lingers in US courts to this very day.” Sharon Noonan Kramer
