Bountiful CourtRate This Apartment
-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.
I rented from spring 2015 through spring 2016.
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 rented from winter 2014 through winter 2014.
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.
I rented from fall 2015 through fall 2015.
DO NOT LIVE HERE. Management is awful, they never answer your phone calls or respond to your emails. Half the time the office isn\'t open when they say it will be. They are incredibly difficult to work with, especially Afton Taylor, the Manager. The apartments are overall outdated, dirty, and too crowded--especially for SIX people to one tiny living space. Not a lot of room to put your things. Bunk beds are annoying and squeaky, the pool is gross and the ward isn\'t close at all. I\'ve had a terrible experience living here and I would not recommend it to anyone, not even my worst enemy. They will fine you for things that you didn\'t even know were possible, and make sure you READ THE CONTRACT THOROUGHLY. They will make you pay for any little thing.

This apartment complex is outdated, overpriced, noisy, and overall a terrible place to live especially as a student. Take my advice, and DO NOT LIVE HERE. The bedrooms are way too small to house three people in them each and still charge as much as they do. One of the showers didn't even work for the entire time that I lived there. Management never fixed it but still expected that we clean it every month for cleaning checks. The "community" that people brag about so often is pretty awful - but not everyone thinks so. The worst part is that they constantly require cleaning checks and I ended up just being charged beyond my security deposit for it at the end because it's impossible to keep such a small place clean with 6 people living there and they be sure to catch you on it and make you pay. The appliances are extremely outdated, the furniture is outdated. the entire apartment is crammed and uncomfortable and outdated. There is absolutely no parking available after 8 pm except two blocks away on the street. There is so much noise because you are in a tiny crammed apartment complex where six people live in each small apartment. There was also construction going on for the last 4 months of my lease so forget about studying for finals at home, and forget about sleeping in past 6am. The one time I used their washer to wash my clothes their appliances were so outdated that it ruined a few of my shirts. The Internet was also supposed to be google fiber, but I could never do more than basic internet searches. Netflix rarely streamed here even though they charged you like it did and made you pay for it as though it did. DO NOT LIVE HERE.
I rented from winter 11 through spring 11.
I lived here Spring and Summer of 2014 and I will NEVER live here again.
I thought I was getting a good deal when I signed for $100 a month... Turns out that the contract and management were very misleading. I clip below is the only way that I can accurately describe my feelings after having to live at Bountiful Court.
If you want to hate your life then live at Bountiful Court.
TWO THUMBS WAY DOWN.
Spring/Summer 14 - It says 100 a month, but with utilities its actually more like 130 (most expensive utilities payment of my life - you know why? It's socialized. They group the whole complex together and then divide by apartment)
I am just so frustrated with the management here. I can't believe how much I was misled when I signed my contract. Make sure you listen to every single detail when you sign up - For example: We were told 4 payments of 100 dollars for a spring/summer contract. Sounds a lot like 100 dollars a month, right? WRONG. The last month, August, you don't get a whole month. In fact, you get half of one. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to feel misled and deceived by management. There is little to no consideration for tenants and when these concerns are voiced, they don't care. So PLEASE BE FOREWARNED.
Quality was mixed/poor - Shower water heat was the most iffy thing - you would wake up in the morning not knowing if you were going to have hot water. So frustrating.
The social scene is so uncomfortable. There is a poor ratio of guys to girls, and an even poorer ratio of people who actually want to get to know people.
Parking was fine, never had issues, although the number of dents I saw on other peoples cars made me worried mine was going to get thrashed with door dings, but it has been fine
Also, recently 5 or so bikes have been stolen and management doesn't care about any increased security for the bikes. Heaven forbid a fence should be put up. Whatever, I'm done with this place.
I lived at Bountiful Court the Spring and Summer of 2014. I did not have a good experience with management. They told us that we had to pay $100 a month but the last month we had to move out on the 14th. The way they structure utilites is that they pool everyones bills and then split it up even per person. It came out to be $30 a month which is way more than I have ever payed during the summer. Be careful when signing a contract. They dont explain everything to you clearly.
The Quality is nothing special at all. The hot water was broken for a 2 week period. The water heater took an additional week for it to be cleaned after I reported it.
If you are looking for an exciting social life in the ward then Bountiful Court is NOT the place to go. They have turned some of the apartments into married housing so there is a terrible boy:girl ratio.
I do NOT recommend living here!
Spring 14 - Summer 14
I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE. PLEASE STEER CLEAR. You're doing yourself a favor.
I was EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED with this living accommodation. I picked this place with a few friends for spring/summer living because it was such an affordable price: 100 a month. The internet was awful when we arrived so we quickly got Google Chrome. This bumped the quality of the apartment up but we were also paying extra for good internet so it's no thanks to BC.
Sounds great so far, right? I have never felt more distanced from the social setting than I have here. I don't consider myself an awkward or quiet person, in fact, I think I'm pretty social. I have always got to know the people in my complex. But here, I felt uncomfortable from day 1. Everyone was really awkward. There was a lot of older people who have lived here for 3+ years, and so many people just don't make eye contact, much less say hello. My first night, I was yelled at by tenants to shut up while carrying suitcases up to my room. Talk about inviting.
Now on to the management. One of the office workers (Sophie) is amazing. Really kind and sweet. The other one (Rachel, I think) is pretty rude. She doesn't seem to care about making sure anyone is happy. She treats the cleaning people poorly. I'm not sure why she was hired. Another issue has been with the move-out date. MAKE SURE when you sign your contract that you CHECK THE DATES FOR WHEN THEY WILL KICK YOU OUT. We are homeless for 2 weeks while we had to pay for the whole month's rent. Now, sure, its our fault for not noticing in the contract BUT SERIOUSLY WHO KICKS A STUDENT OUT when BC and EVERY OTHER COMPLEX for that matter isn't having move-ins until the 25th!!!!
So again: I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE. PLEASE STEER CLEAR. You're doing yourself a favor.
