So, today is August 2nd. All of us off-campus students should be in our new apartments and be settling in getting ready for another football season and maybe start thinking about classes. Not me. I lived out on Billy Sunday Rd. this past year at South Duff Community Park. I was never a big fan, so we decided to move across town to Westwood Village owned by Haverkamp. We wanted a first floor unit with a walkout as we have a dog. Haverkamp assigned us a first floor unit with walkout patio and assured us TWICE over the phone that this was the case. We move out of the current apartment at 9:00 AM on July 31st and can't move in to the new apartment until 3:00 PM. Most of our stuff is in a storage unit at this time. We hang around town until about 2:00 PM and then head over to Haverkamp's offices to pick up a key. We get to the apartment and it's not a first floor unit! I call Haverkamp up to complain saying we were assured by the office that it was in fact a first floor unit. I said we would have never moved if we were going to have to take a second floor unit. (There are a lot more details I'm leaving out, but you get the jist). Haverkamp finally agrees to void the lease. We return the keys and got a check for our deposit. So, now it's 4:00 PM on July 31st and we have no where to stay. We called up a couple places to look at a few duplexes. Luckily, the landlords agree to show the units on one of the busiest days of the year. We find one we like, but wouldn't be able to move in until Monday, August 4th. Unfortunately, we need a place to stay until then. So, I haul my fiance, dog, cat, and myself back to my parents place in Davenport to spend the weekend. We submit the application yesterday and thankfully were approved. We now move in Monday afternoon back in Ames. I got a call from Haverkamp Friday that it was a mistake in documentation in the office and the person that wanted the second floor unit had complained as well. They figured out their mistake and gave them the second floor unit. Unfortunately for them, they had already voided my lease and paid me back the deposit, so I was not forced to take the first floor unit. They offered it to me, but I said I had already found a duplex to move into starting Monday. They weren't to happy about it, but I really don't understand why. In the end, it's all for the better, but Haverkamp really made it a stressful couple days and we lost a whole weekend of moving in. I lost two days of work already and will have to miss Monday as well.
