I do not know what you are talking about. I am not a board member, nor do I work for Young and Associates. I do not know the answers to your questions as I am a homeowner who attends meetings on a regular basis.

I am an original owner and am tired of listening to people b!tch about management and the board. If you are unhappy come to meetings or better yet run for the board. Quit complaining and step up to the plate.

The super is a joke, the management company is a joke with horrible attitudes..
Last summer, i had the upstairs people clog their toilet somehow, i heard the water running down my wall in my bedroom...i go into the bathroom to see whats going on, and pee water, yes PEE water from upstairs comes falling thru the ceiling vent all over me...i go running outside and over to the supers door...banging and ringing bell...tv was so loud, he was probably passed out drunk in there...calling and calling the emergency number...no one answers...called the office the next day and the lovely manager of ridge did NOTHING to help..2 years ago i slipped on ice on the steps and could not get up, had to be hauled off in an ambulance and could not walk right for almost a month, i was literally crawling around my apartment on all fours...i STILL have not received reimbursement for my bills or a call back from the insurance...there is people is building 14 who let their out of control son scream and scream all over the place at 7am all summer long...i complain and they tell me there is nothing they can do, to call the police..they want to collect $240 a month in maintenance fees in an AFFORDABLE housing unit the wonder why people cannot keep up with the payments !! People here are too good to pick up dog shit...i had the mirror on my truck broken by the little shit next door 3 years ago because he runs around and does whatever he likes while his mother sits on the bench and just watches...note after note after phone call because my boyfriend had his personal, PERSONAL pickup truck parked here WHERE HE LIVES with *gasp* a commercial plate on it, and i was the only one who kept getting singled out..but yet L***** Landscaping up the street can keep his truck(s) parked there with no problems...recentl;y my daughter was at the pool and was being harrassed by some bitch old lady named PAM who lives on Thoreau because somehow she knew my personal situation as to why i did not have pool passes, but my daughter DID have a pool band on her arm...is someone on the board spreading people's personal information to people who shoudl not have it ?? ONLY EXPLANATION in my book !! The an email goes out that no one from my house is to be allowed at the pool, and specifically posted my underage daughter's name in the email ! I don't know who PAM thinks she is, but if my daughter has a pool band, regardless of who gave it to her, she is allowed at the pool !! Harrassing someone's child ?? Really ?? I could go on and on and on.

Dear Joe, it's called theft of services. We pay for your service and get nothing in return.
We do go to lots of meetings. That's how we know how big this scandal is.

Are you telling me the photos on this Facebook website are fake?

https://www.facebook.com/pages/Save-Ridge-Gar...

Ridge Garden Residents are still being screwed by the board, management and the super/radpol sending unmarked crews in to do work with no lisencing & no insuranse.

Its not a coincidence that every picture posted on Facebook have been addresses or are being addressed. For two years the home owner meetings said they were fixing roof leaks. All of a sudden it's posted on Facebook and now they are fixing SOME roof leaks. We have been complaining about the roads for years and now that pictures are posted on Facebook your fixing the roads. The list goes on and on.

www.yaapropertymanagement.com has destroyed my building in ridge gardens. I was better off with the old roof. The new roof leaks and I get " what do you want me to do" from HW Young and Associates when I tell them. The leak goes down my exhaust vent for my water heater and HVAC system. It has leaked through my ceiling leaving stains soft spots and a crack. They expect me to fix my ceiling without the source of the problem on the roof being fixed.

Think hard before you hire http://www.yaapropertymanagement.com for your needs. They have destroyed Ridge Gardens in Mahwah NJ

Ridge Gardens needs to vote http://www.yaapropertymanagement.com out ASAP. It's currently a sinking ship.

Dont buy Ridge Gardens

Jackson, NJ

#34 Jun 28, 2013
I guess we can't afford to mulch and trim the landscaping at Ridge Gardens in Mahwah since HW Young & Associates www.youngandassoc.com spent $20,000 on POOL FURNITURE, a SHED for Radpol contractor Llc, who is an unlisenced, uninsured contractor that wins ALL the bids in Ridge Gardens Condo complex in Mahwah and uses our dumpsters to dump his trash from his other jobs. Who paid for radpol contracting Llc Japanese motif backyard landscaping? How much did it cost us to lay all the rock down for his drinking friends in the building next to him?
How did building 1 get mulch. How did building 1 bring in fill and change the layout of the property and water table. Did you buy fill tickets for this? How does building 1 have a beautiful cement bench when the rest of the complex gets cheap ass iron benches? Who payed for all of building 1,2,3,4, Radpol and his buddies upgrades while the entire complex is in shambles. How does building 1 still have an illegal antenna on the roof? How does building 1 have mulch? How did building 1 get more then 1 tree that was effected by Sandy removed and all their stumps removed when the storm cause knocked down trees all over the complex and those stumps have still not been addressed.
The super is so lazy that half the crawl space doors aren't closed. Why have doors on them if you don't know how to close them? Leaving doors open creates all kinds of creepy issues.
Young and Associates http://www.yaapropertymanagement.com is running this place into the ground.
Bottom line is if a realtor is telling you Ridge Gardens is a great place to live they have no ethics. You need to find a new realtor that cares about YOU.
If you believe the town is involved in this scandal the you need to contact The Bergen County Prosecutor`s Office www.bcpo.net/

NO ONE and i repeat NO ONE keeps the downstairs doors closed and locked...we all have a key...WHY ARE THESE DOORS CONSTANTLY LEFT OPEN ???? Had animals in my storage unit last week, too afraid to go back down and see if they are still there...spoke to the 'super' and he told me he knows the ladies that keep opening the doors, but NOTHING IS DONE ABOUT IT AND WHY ???? It is disgusting enough down there with the moisture and mildew that has grown on my boxes and the creepiest bugs i have EVER seen, but now we have to have animals living in our stuff too ?? Whatever it was, was big enough to knock stuff of mine over !!! Was told they are not calling animal control because they will take care of it...hmmm

Do not rent Ridge Gardens

Mahwah, NJ

#37 Jul 1, 2013
Do not buy or rent in ridge gardens in mahwah nj. If a realtor is trying to rent or sell you a unit in ridge gardens they they don't care about the costumer and just want a commission. If a realtor had any morals they would point all customers away from ridge gardens until young & associates inc. and his crews get voted out.

There is something called the Directors' Code of Ethics that is signed and signed by a witness.
Ridge Gardens Condominium Association Directors Code of Ethics:

Honesty and good faith
Care,diligence and skill
Conflict of interest
CONFIDENTIALITY
Good conduct
Support
Defamation
Minimize conflict

They are legally bound to the code of ethics.

lol
HW Young & Associates is still letting Radpol and his guys park their vans and do work in Ridge Gardens in Mahwah with no insurance or license to do home improvement. Do you think his van parked over night in building 2 would go unnoticed? Or the work being done in building 4. Again remember only building 1,2,3,4 only get work done in this place. Unless your related to the super or have worked for the town or friends with the board members.
I guess it's why we get no pool privileges unless we get homeowners insurance. This allows HW Young Associates to hire uninsured workers and not be liable.

Force us to buy homeowner insurance or no pool. lol

Who is the Director of Ridge gardens in mahwah? I would like a copy of the code of ethics they signed.

lol HW Young and Associates has full control over all the fools in Ridge Gardens. You have no chance. He has been with Ridge Gardens since the beginning. Toney fought HW Young and Associates constantly. When Toney passed HW Young and Associates monopolized this place. Good luck with your cause. The town is waiste deep into it also. The town knows the super is doing illegal pluming,electrical, and more.

"Ridge Gardens and Young and Associates has put in writing why not to buy or rent in Ridge Gardens. Any realtor trying to sell or rent a unit in Ridge Gardens is not looking out for the best interest of their customers and are just look to make a quick buck.

"Section 18 paragraph 1 of the Rules and Regulations state that the Board of Trustees has the power to ADOPT! AMEND, and enforce compliance with the rules and regulations relative to the operation and use of the facilities."August 4 2010

This is why they always say no one goes to the meetings so they can do what they want. If no one goes to the board meetings then how come it was standing room only then you moved meetings to a bigger place to accommodate all the people. "

Pay your monthly maintenance bills like everyone else and you would have pool bands. Your daughter has no right being in the pool if you are not current.

1005 Thoreau Court Is having electrical work done. Happened to pass by and see worker outside making a mess and leaving an electrical cord outside on parking space just after the worker leaves and then a major rain deluge occurs. Has the person no concept of electrical cords being left in the rain and the damage that might occur?

The whole building area has been left messy, wood carvings outside and on the staircase landings and the person working has smoked outside on the stairs every fifteen minutes. I would like to know who is home supervising the work being done. As it looks to me there is no one home. This has been going on for the past week..weekend included.

How a ridge garden owner can be absent when work is being done in their unit is beyond imagining, irresponsibility should be accounted for. This has been posted so all will see what is occurring in building 10 without anyone being present.

Yes, I have encountered Pool Pam and she went into a nasty, rude tirade towards me. At first I thought she was helpful, but I have seen and heard about her harassing and rude behavior which is almost comparable to a psychotic behavior. How people put up with her is beyond belief. Sweet and nice and then for no reason turns into a veritable harassing harridan.

Can no one put a stop to her behavior? I have learned she has been reported previously for harassment. Still nothing has been done. She is allowed pool privileges as all of us are. She is a serious problem. Hopefully, one day some some will help with this.

Did i say that is why she was 'not allowed' there jerk off ??? If she has a band on her arm, she can go as the guest of whomever is bringing her as their guest. Case closed. It's a dumpy ass pool, we are not swimming at the Ritz Carlton here.

Name calling is not going to help the situation at Ridge Gardens. Giving out personal information is illegal for both the board and Young and Associates according to the directors code of ethics.

I had an issue in my building where Radpol construction workers were fixing some kind of vent and they blocked my neighbors AC compressor and it over heated and blew the entire system. They tried to fix it themselves even though they have no insurance or construction license not to mention electrical lisence. Young and associates was trying to talk their way out of it. I think in the end it was fixed however the Point is smart people know not to block compressors so they don't over heat. Another example how this place works. Low end workers cost more in the end. Talk about liabilities.
