Granite Cottages LLC Atlanta GA are the last people in Atlanta you should ever rent from. I never go out of my way to leave bad reviews, but I can’t in good conscious not at least warn people about Steed and Granite Cottages LLC because I don’t want anyone else to have to go through the same ordeal my wife and I have had to live through over the past eight months. They are absolutely the worst land lords (dare I say slum lords) my wife and I have ever rented from in our ten years in Atlanta. Due to a disability I’m dealing with, My wife and I moved here a little over 8 months ago now. In 8 months, we still have not received a trash can or a recycle bin to put our trash into for collection. We are having to pile our trash bags up by the curb getting complaints and comments from generally understanding neighbors but when we call the city, we are told that our land lord is the one who has to order them. There is a hole left in the dry wall by the land lord’s plumbers that has gone unrepaired for months in-spite of calling to remind him multiple times. The laundry connections that we were promised on move in were not functional and were flooding the basement and we had to wait weeks to do our laundry while paying him full rent. We waited months before we got an AC unit in the home (which was promised at move in). By that time, the house was reaching up to 90 degrees inside. We had to instal the AC unit ourselves because our landlord didn’t do it nor did he hire anyone to do it. We are now going into fall and winter with a heater that does not work and getting the same run around we’ve gotten about all of the other issues Steed has decided he wants to ignore or let sit for months. We’ve already seen a few nights where the temp has dropped into the 30s but we’ve yet to see if this issue will be resolved or ignored like most everything else. We had to install our own gas oven and range because our land lord wouldn’t do it. Some of the doors and windows don’t even lock and are very poorly insulated, I had to do most of that work myself. Steed is obviously a rich boy who’s never done anything for himself and thinks renting this place out is an easy way to collect your money without having to make any effort. Do not rent from him. He can’t even answer basic questions about his own house such as ”where is the pilot light on this furnace” because he has absolutely no idea. All of the people he gets to come do any sort of work or repair that actually wasn’t ignored ARE NOT professionals and do poor work that does not last. Most do not even speak english. Steed is the definition of a slum lord. I know this neighborhood is starting to look attractive and the rent is decent (although we have lived in cheaper housing with FAR better conditions and decent landlords) but PLEASE do not rent from Steed or Granite Cottages LLC.
