Bountiful CourtRate This Apartment
This place is HORRIBLE!!! The units are old and gross and falling apart. I moved in about a week early and had to spend hours cleaning because of how filthy and smelly it was AFTER someone had been there \"cleaning\" before we got there. The management is absolute trash and obviously don\'t know how to manage anything, especially money. My bill and my other roommate\'s (who moved in with me a week early) were drastically different than the other girls\' in the apartment\'s. We were just billed more for the same things for some reason.
They will also find any flaw in your cleaning check to charge for a recheck. Literally the apartment is covered in stains and water damage and gross musty smells but God forbid theres dust on one of the swamp cooler fan blades.
I\'m not LDS so I can\'t say much about the ward, but I can say the only time to get good parking is on Sunday when everyone is at church. The parking lot and surrounding block has a lot of parking spaces...just not nearly enough for how many cars there are. I could almost never get a spot when I got home from work at around 10PM, not just because most people were home by then, but because there were at least 20 cars permanently parked in the lot because people bring their cars and then use their bikes to get everywhere.
I could go on and on about how awful it is here--you\'ll only like it if your standard of living is lower than the ground--but the icing on the cake was when I was checking out in December. I was coming home to Minnesota, which would be a 17+ hour drive, so I made an appointment at 9AM to check out. On the day I was checking out I packed all my stuff in my car, prepped everything for my roadtrip and then waited for the manager to get there. Literally 2 hours passed before I got fed up and called the BYU housing board, who gave me her personal number. I called twice but she didn\'t answer, so I texted and she said she wasn\'t going to come in that day, and that I could just leave my key in the office mailbox. It just seemed so immature for her to do that, especially after I had worked around her schedule and chosen a day I could come in at a time that would be good for HER.
Choose literally anywhere else, please. The most this place is worth per month is maybe $20, and thats including utilities.

The management is outrageous. Out of my 4 years in Provo, this is the only place I have lived that I have failed cleaning checks. The place is falling apart and they want you to clean the crumbling walls and scrape out the grout from between the tiles. The management is impossible to get a hold of whether through office hours or email or telephone. There is a fun atmosphere of the complex thanks to the people, but I would not recommend this place to anyone.

By far the WORST apt complex I\'ve ever lived in. Management is constantly screwing over their tenants, charging them for everything and anything they can come up with. We were charged over $200 for a small carpet stain and for taking out and then putting back in a screen. The on-site manager is constantly away from the office, doesn\'t answer emails, and can be straight up rude. STAY AWAY FROM BC IF AT ALL POSSIBLE! Wouldn\'t recommend it to ANYONE!

This complex offers a decent price. You get what you pay for. The location is good--right next to downtown provo. The ward is fun and very social. Management is willing to work through problems.

Is there a way to make this 0 stars in some of these? I absolutely HATE this place!
They have no real office hours, because they change frequently, and people are rarely in when the hours say they will be. Emails are rarely answered despite what they say. Maintenance takes weeks to fix any problems you may have, and then the fix is usually only half baked.
And don\'t let the prices they list lure you in, they add all kinds of extra fines which makes this one of the more expensive places around. This includes being charged for cleaning rechecks (when you fail the monthly cleaning check). What\'s worse is they LIED saying that other places charge more, so we are getting a deal here. I have looked, and I have not seen anywhere else that charges for the recheck, only for any fines if the recheck is failed as well.
Also, ignore comments about it having a good ward. It changes every year, so there is no way to predict how \"good\" the ward is. Plus, it\'s BYU, there will be \"good\" wards wherever you live.

Don\'t live here. Bountiful Courts is cheap, but it isn\'t that great of a deal to make up for all the horrible things that come with living here. Management is the worst I have experienced in provo and I would do anything to go back and change my mind about living here. We had a leak in our roof for over 2 weeks that they had to come and fix three times. They never responded to our maintenance requests so two days after we had submitted two, we had to knock on the office door, which was closed during office hours to even get them to address the problem. We were out of our apartment for two weeks, plus some other various days, and they denied reimbursing us for those days we weren\'t able to live in the apartment. The construction was done so that drywall, insulation, mud, and other debris was blown all over our room and all over our clothes. During this whole ordeal management would not answer emails or questions, and even told us to not call her. We even had to start working with the BYU housing office, but management had no problem telling them blatant lies and misinforming them. If you want to have to move out of your apartment mid semester, wash all of your clothing and bedding, loose some of your belongings to damage, and stress out about being reimbursed for the two weeks you didn\'t live in the apartment that you were paying for, live here. It is just an experience that is greatly disappointing, frustrating, and quite frankly, rude. Don\'t pay people like this.

-Lived here for 3 years..I really loved the floor plan. large kitchen, fair sized living room. There\'s 3 ppl in 2 largish bedrooms (used to be married housing), which I loved because the BC\'s known to attract some weirdies..so it\'s nice having another person in the room as a buffer haha. Also, a lot of really cool people move there on a whim and then move out cause the social life is roughh.
-2 bathrooms for 6 people was never an issue. I also really liked that the ward was the single building; everyone was in close reach. Has a lot of potential to be fun, if you can get fun people to move there. Close to downtown, but like a 20 min walk from campus.
-First set of management, Jess, was the BOMB. New management (Sophie, etc..) definitely rough. Pretty sure she\'s like 19. They switched a girl into our apartment without asking us, ripped off some of my roommates, and were pretty rude/inconsiderate in general.
-Parking\'s great. My friend left her car parked in the garage the whole summer while she was away. lol.
-Price was good. Started at $350 but I got so many discounts for living there so long and signing yearly by the end of it I was paying like $185 a month. :)
I rented from fall 2011 through winter 2014.
Management is terrible. They \'arrive\' at work around 3 in the afternoon. (They live there, yet somehow can\'t be at work before 3) they \'leave\' at 5. (Again they live there, so no reason they should be done at 5. I wouldn\'t insist that they work past five except, again, they don’t begin work until 3.) Half the time they aren’t even there during that 3-5 window. They don\'t work at all some days.
They charged us for removing a screen, despite the screen being its being untouched by us. If anyone touched it, it was the previous tenants and 2. The screen was unmoved and undamaged. Whatever the previous tenants did it didn\'t damage the screen any.
I don\'t recommend this place under this management.

Simply put, Bountiful Court is one of the absolute worst places you could ever choose to live. DO NOT live here unless you are absolutely desperate and would end up homeless instead of getting an apartment here! The apartments are crap and management makes you clean them like they are five star apartments. You never knew if the shower was going to have hot water that day. Six people to one apartment and they are tiny! The claim that it is the best singles value housing in Provo is a joke. And the ward was full of either weird people or people who already had friends and didn\'t want to get to know you. I consider myself a fairly social person but this ward was one of my least favorite. And the guy-girl ratio is a total farce, definitely not a 1:1 ratio. The apartments are so far away from campus which sucked too. Management tries to scam you out of your money for cleaning checks also! The expect you to move into a filthy and trashy apartment and make it look cleaner than it was when you moved in. Basically everything about this place sucks. Worst four months of my life living here, and I do not recommend it to anyone ever.

I never write reviews for something unless I find it really important. Please listen to me. DO NOT CHOOSE TO LIVE AT BOUNTIFUL COURTS. Don\'t do it to yourself.
