Young and Associates, Ridge Gardens board members and the super are so incompetent that they can't even keep up with the lighting in the complex. Check out how many poles are chipping paint, leaning over or are over grown by trees just on the main road. How about them Belgium block curbs. Young and Associates can't even get them fixed. How about closing the crawl space doors? Is that to advanced for our super?

Ridge Gardens and Young and Associates Property management company Inc in wood-ridge nj are awful . They mulch and redo the landscaping on building 1 three times while the rest of the complex did not get any mulch as of today August 5 2013. Again check out where the supers family member lives. They got a complete makeover with over priced landscaping while the rest of the complex gets zero.
If you want to keep up with pictures showing the truth about HW Young and Associates Inc. in Wood_Ridge NJ and Ridge Gardens in Mahwah then keep visiting save ridge gardens on Facebook and the twitter page.

A half-dozen gas blowers descend on you at once, they royally pollute the air inside condos and hallways, get grit into car electric windows, debris is blown onto what's left on the lawns, and creates a dust storm so you can't get into your home until the dust clears, the gas tastes real healthy. They do this many, many times a year. It's inhumane and stressful. It's been this way for decades. What can a homeowner do to get gas blowers to stop being used? It is a sick way to live that's for sure.

Agree. The stuff is just re- blown around especially landing in back of my condo...e.g.,discarded socks(can you believe no one picks them up...shame on people for not seeing what's around them, and then they just get reblown somewhere else.) Thank you for noticing. Thought I was the only one ruminating about this. Unless I pick things up myself they just get "GASSED AROUND".

I am not noticing socks?! Just a preference for good, clean air .... inside! Gas blowers are starting to be illegal in many states but NJ is slow for some unethical reason.

Why are people allowed to live here who do not pay maintenance fees and insurance, and the Association knows who you are.

Who is responsible when there's a fire and the place goes up - the nonpayer? I doubt it.

The Assoc. does not enforce it's own by-laws,ie by ALLOWING non-payers to dwell here.

I would like to not pay, and let every one else pick up the tab. That's working the system. You go, girl.

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.
Well. Someone IS giving out people's personal information, i know that for a fact...a certain lady whom i have never met, made very STRONG insinuations on a certain issue, of which she would have had NO CLUE OF. As well as VERY snide remarks that were made to me when i spoke to Harvey Young himself. As for the issue of people not paying maintenance fees, they are completely UNAFFORDABLE for AFFORDABLE HOUSING UNITS. Why are the fees over in Society Hill only about $80 a month ??? And in affordable units over in Ridge they are close to $250 a month. Of course no one can ever answer that question. Let's not even touch upon the people who have illegal dishwashers, washers, dryers in their units that effect the cost of everyone's maintenance fees. Thr rules they make only apply to certain people, when others can get away with whatever they want. Maybe of people were taken seriously they would care about paying such OUTRAGEOUS maintenance fees. Just a thought.

Nothing they can do about people who own their unit, and not rent. Who is this girl ?

Close your windows then when they are landscaping, is that not common sense ? There is nothing you can do about gas blowers. It will never be illegal in this state. You breathe the same gas every time you fill your car up with gas do you not ? There are never enough landscapers here at one time, to be carrying SIX blowers. No landscaping company needs SIX blowers in one location.

Janet... There is plenty of wildlife to be found in and out of Ridge Gardens... I've seen deer, bear, coyotes, turkey, foxes, snapping turtles and yes even snakes. This is what to expect when you live in Mahwah and especially when a development is built on wetlands! LOL!!

Look where ever you go you will find crazy people. Regardless of all the crazies we have in this complex... It is quite amazing how little power the people of the complex have. We have a board and an association which is essentially working for us as residents. However, they do little for the people. Theres no new faces in the board and they sit too complacent on old or null issues. They will not even hear a real resident issue.

The process for complaints:
The association asks you for a picture if you have an issue or somethings broken. So you send them a picture, and if they decide to respond you'll see the unprofessional, uneducated, NOT licensed, and NOT insured contractor/super to remedy your issue. The problem really lies with every time they fix something it was better off left the way it was.

The super has no interest in bettering the value of this property. Simply living here cheap and having work which he is purely incompetent in.
(If anyone would argue this then hire him to work on your own home. But you wouldn't do that now would you?)

But hey we will keep writing our association due checks and continue to see nothing but property value declines, tax hikes, and super failure after failure.

Before I forget the best part about ridge gardens is the amount of leaks and other system failures occurring within the walls. Spoiler alert there are residents who have had major leaks (damage in excess of $4000 per leak) 3 times a year. So be forewarned that there are elderly people and others who simply neglect to upkeep their homes will cause havoc for your home when a leak or worse happens.

"handicap parking" for people that dont need it! "

A young woman on my street has been using one of the two handicapped spaces for years, without displaying a license plate or placard. I asked that the board contact her and ask her to stop. The board never answered my note, but YAA told me she had a placard. It's an air freshener! I don't know why the board is so afraid to enforce violations.

I also don't understand why we can't write directly to the board and get an answer. Why does everything have to go through YAA?

"What happened to Ridge gardens? Who's running it into the ground? Harvey Young or the board members? Radpol LLC wins all the bids even though it is an unlisenced/uninsured company, builds a shed in the complex for his business, uses all the dumpsters to dump his businesses waiste, parks his business truck and lives in a condo that is owned by the complex. That's a huge red flag, no? Smells fishy. The federal government needs to look into all the books for everyone involved. Personal accounts included. "

Google and do your research and you will see he wasn't even a contractor until his little deal with ridge gardens.

Who is the security person? Are they licensed security guard or are we just being charged for a licensed security guard and getting some kid? Is this another scam?

Ridge gardens needs to stop trying to scam us and do something about the dog poop and appearance of the complex. How many years are you going to skip mulching or weeding. Only the people who are involved with the corruption get things done.

Don't expect the super to be around if your service man needs access to anything. Why do we pay for an inferior super?

Really proud of the way management, especially, Cori, is making sure our English Tudor country-style condo remains as pristine and beautiful as it was when I first moved here 23 years ago. Painting done for our lantern lights was just excellent and hedges trimming has made the landscape look lovely and inviting. Paving was a tremendous success. Kudos to management and to Cori!!
