My advise to anyone looking for a place to live do not, I repeat, do not come here. This the worst place to live. The luxury is misused here. These apartments are by no means luxurious apartments. There are to many issues with these new apartment. For one they have mold growing in each of the apartments, and management doesn't care. They have been reported to BBB, and they haven't two years yet, they are young and inexperience. Between floors they isn't any insulation so you here everything. In the lease agreement there is a statement that states quite time time is from 10 in the evening to 9 in the morning, neither of this is adherent to by anyone and when reported to management they tell you this apartment living so deal with it.
The maintenance personnel are not that good either, so far we brought a number of issues to there attention, of which neither have been repaired by them. I have had to make all the repairs myself at my cost. The apartments are cold and very dreary. The interior is of a two tone brown, with one wall in the dinning room a chocolate brown.The heat needs to be set between 75 - 80 just to stay somewhat warm.
The hot water tank is a mere 50 gallons, the trash system at Oldham Oaks Apartments is a central trash compactor that you take your garbage to and the maintenance personnel will operate the trash compactor twice a day. The club house has just been completed about three weeks ago and yet when those of us who were foolish enough to move into these apartments, a portion of the monthly rent went to the club house use, of which none of those funds were ever refunded to those us who moved in before the club house was completed.
During our winter months, salt was not allowed to used to help melt the ice on the sidewalks, instead sand was used, and if you know anything about winter driving sand does not work, it slides off the ice and hard packed snow. The only thing that management is concerned about is filling up all the units and not caring for the occupate that live in those units. To some this is good business, to this individual this is very poor business practice, for the simple fact if this was good business practice I wouldn't be writing this type of review.
Like in mentioned earlier this is the worst please to live. Don't subject your family to this inconsideration that is shown here. There are other apartments complexes within the lagrange area that is much nicer then these and you are respected for you and not just a number.

I apologize for the lengthy review, although it is my intent to distract those looking for an apartment to look someplace else. I figure if I can do that I will be saving someone a considerable amount of money, because this place is not the price being charged per unit.
The apartments are not built all that good nor are they quiet. Some are still under construction, so I took the time to walk through the ones that were still in the framing stage, and I amaze to see there wasn't any insulation between the walls nor the floors, so that told me neither of the units here sound proof and cold in the winter.
Management here are young inexperienced employees, and they expect the residents to work their differences with each other, if there is a noise problem, the policy here is you work it out between you and neighbor, if the management is needed they will assist you, they will not do it for you.
The crown molding in my apartment as started to separate at the joints, this has been mention to management all they did was hand me a tub of caulking and told me to fix it. Would like to hang a picture or two but the “can’t” do list is so long, we choose not to hang anything on the walls at all.
The parking here at the complex is first come first serve, so if you are out late and come back you probably won’t have a parking space other than across the street. Well I have to stop, running out space will continue later. But before I go please consider looking in other direction, don’t spend your money on a place where your quality of life will be well below standards.

I would encourage anyone reading the posts above to remember there are two sides to every story. If you have any questions or concerns about anything that was mentioned above I would encourage you to call the complex and speak to the management about it directly. I am confident they would be happy and willing to honestly answer any questions or address any concerns you may have.

I will have to agree with both the posts above. These are far from luxurious for the amount of money you have to pay. You do HEAR everything in these apartments, if someone farts, you will hear it. They are poorly insulated, we live here and can testify the heat does need to be on 72-75 to be comfortable, The master closet has no HVAC, very cold in winter. If you complain about any noise above you, they do tell you to try and resolve that with the person. We had to get nasty about it and bang on walls to return the noise, and only then would the management get involved. They are very inexperienced. Oh, and if you ask for corporates number, they won't give it. But do some searching, you will find it because I did and plan on making a complaint to them and through the BBB. We are moving as our home is almost finished, but if i had to be here a year or more, I would definitely move. We would not be able to tolerate the noise for that long. So if you like noise and being cold in winter, then move on in.

Wow, when I ran across the above reviews about Oldham Oaks I couldn't believe it. My family has had a great experience living in these apartments. The clubhouse, basketball court, playground, pool, and gym are awesome, and the apartments are fantastic, especially if you have a family or just want to live in a nice place. The rent includes a lot and there's a walking trail and dog run super close, so this is a great place for your furbabies too! Every time we've had a problem it's been fixed really quick and management has always been really helpful.

I have lived at Oldham Oaks for 4 months now and
Have Zero complaints....it is generally quiet..sure from time to time you will hear some noise but that is to be expected. All in all I am very happy here and management had been very helpful.

My husband and I are moving from a house with acreage in Michigan. He has been here since the beginning of June, and I have been down for a couple of weeks recently; I will be moving down permanently in January. I was nervous after I read the scathing reviews above, but we decided to try them out for the year. Oldham Oaks is quiet, clean, and well-maintained. The complex is in a great location, close to work and shopping but with lots of land and room, making it feel country. Jesse and Abigail take their jobs seriously and respond quickly when asked about any issues. From another state and a house with lots of land to an apartment is a complex move, but the managers here have made our move easier with their friendliness and professionalism.

The new owners are rip off artists. Beware. Do not move here.
Tyler is the complex manager but can never answer a question without consulting his boss. The woman helping him refers everything to Tyler. AR Building won't answer certified letter disputing fraudulent charges on my account. Will not return phone calls. They just want your money.

I lived at Oldham Oaks for a little over a year. I moved out last May. They have not given my deposit back. When I called they said they see where I'm entitled to my full deposit return but the apartment is under new ownership and the money is with the old owner. They told me to track down the old owner and collect from him. I sent a certified letter stating that my lease is with Oldham Oaks Apartments and they have 30 days to return my deposit before I file a claim in small claims court. Their time is up this Thursday. So I am going to court.

Just trying to help your situation because I have dealt with many corrupt business's as well as just plain lazy ass people. Dont give up hope theirs always a loop hole to fixing any problem. Try recording some of your conversations about fixing things on your cell phone without their knowledge. Theres always an app for everything. After and only after you believe you have a case then report them to the fair housing act go above their heads and send your videos and recording to as many news stations in and around louisville as you possibly can. Wouldn't that get your point across to others about how they conduct business. Hope I helped you in some way. P.s the media is always looking for new stories.

I would also ask the judge for any expenses that you my lose out on for missing a full day of work for having to take the day off to come to court.
