Suspicious Letter - Pest Control Inspection Again? How Often is Pest Control Inspections vs Actual Service Done?

Feedback Problem for Serena Winter Park

Hi, In case any other tenant is also wondering about this letter left at your door today... A bit concerned with a 'Mckinley' notice found at my door tonight Feb 4, 2019 (and no other doors nearby as I looked around) which I found very odd. We just had an annual pest control inspection back in October 2018 and this letter states that so is being done all over again in all units. Nothing against pest control, unless someone is sick at home with Asthma at the time but what is alarming is that the letter is dated the SAME day the inspection was set to be done (today Feb 4th)...meaning...

Good morning and thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention! Yes, this letter was accurately delivered to you and is from our management office. These were delivered yesterday, February 4th and listed today, February 5th, as the planned date for inspection. Please note that these inspections are completed quarterly, not annually, and are done on a rotating schedule with select buildings/apartments completed each week. We typicaly slide these notices into the side of your door and it sounds like it may have fallen below to your door mat. I do apologize for the confusion with the top latch and will have this removed from future notices. This is a standard template that it is used at several of our communities, as these are required inspections to ensure that there are no existing or ongoing pest control issues in the community. We want you to be happy and comfortable in your homes and will always do whatever possible to coordinate entry into your home around your schedule, however there are required inspections that may occur throughout the year, and we will always provide you with a minimum of 24 hours notice prior to our entry. I appreciate you asking this question and being on the lookout for our community! Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to assist you and I will be happy to help! Have a wonderful day!

Non working community lighting in back of property/throughout and other safety concerns needing attention!

Feedback Problem for Serena Winter Park

Good day/To Whom It May Concern; I've been meaning to notify you of a few community issues/observations here at Serena at Winter Park for some time now but my hectic schedule made it almost impossible but...once I realized it was affecting me directly I had to share immediately. I often come home very late at night/morning and have noticed the following safety issues... - The big 'city' light pole near the corner of Apts 2826/2825 / across the fire hydrant is not working as it should. This warm yellow/dim pole light shuts off/on randomly and also flickers throughout the night...

I have left you a voicemail with my direct number, however you can also email me directly at Frances.Ruiz@mckinley.com. You can rest assure that our residents are our number one priority and we will do what ever is possible to ensure our residents are happy and enjoying their homes.

Thank you for your response Frances. I did eventually end up having this issue reported to Duke Energy myself after a few days went by with light still not functioning and no record on Duke's system of it being already reported by anyone as per the representative's research. They said would take approximately 3 days for a tech to come out and this was done sometime last week.

Important Community Reminders!

Announcement for Serena Winter Park

Good afternoon, Serena Residents!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic start to your New Year!

I wanted to take a moment to review a few important community reminders with everyone to ensure that our community is kept clean and beautiful for everyone to enjoy!

Bicycles: Should be stored and secured in a designated bike rack when not in use. This is the best way to prevent bicycles from being lost or stolen from the property. This also keeps the grounds safe for other residents who may trip or fall by bicycles being left on sidewalks or any other non-designated...

Smoking

Feedback Problem for Serena Winter Park

My partner and I chose Serena with the impression that this was a smoke-free environment. Cancer runs in my family (sixth and seventh generations with cancer traced to smoke) and I was impressed with the idea that this would be enforced. I’ve called the office twice today to complain about neighbors smoking and more than 4 other times complaining about the same issue. I’ve grown very tired of having to close my door and windows to keep the smell of smoke out of my apartment because other people in the building cant follow lease agreements.

Thank you so much for bringing your concern to my attention and also for taking the time to speak with me about it this afternoon! We are proud to be a smoke free community and it is very upsetting when residents or their guests violate this policy. I will be serving the apartment we discussed with a smoking violation notic this afternoon and will address this right away for you! Please always feel free to reach out to me directly at megan.baker@mckinley.com so that I can step in to help whenever you need me! Thank you for your understanding and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
