UPDATE, 6/23/22, 7:12 P.M.: News 10 was able to track down the management to see if they will address the problems.

They told us off camera they are aware of the problems with no air conditioning, no hot water and mold in some of the apartments. Management said they inherited a lot of issues with the apartments when they took over the complex in February. 

The biggest issue, no maintenance was being done to the individual apartments. As of now they have one maintenance person for the entire complex and are looking to bring on more staff.

They said the problem was a work order issue. They are now trying to get the problems solved.

ORIGINAL, 6/20/22, 7:12 P.M.: LAFAYETTE, La (KLFY) — Residents living at a southside apartment complex in Lafayette have been experiencing what it’s like to live without air conditioning.

Lekeisha Thomas lives at Pinhook South Apartments and says she has had enough after not having running AC for more than two years.

According to Thomas, multiple request for maintenance to repair her broken AC unit have been swept under the rug or completely ignored.

She says she has had to deal with the problem under the previous management and now the new management.

“When somebody else came on, we reported the problem and I mean nothing got done.”

News Ten reached out to management but was unable to get through to anyone.

A sign posted on the office door said the main office was closed until further notice.

When asked how does she get relief from the heat, Thomas said she has two fans that circulate hot air and at times has to sit in her car to cool off.

“Right when it turns about 2 p.m. that’s when the heat index drops , so I’m out sitting in the car for like 2-3 hours.”
