Apartment ceiling finally fixed after News 4 story


OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) — A subway tenant breathes a sigh of relief, after saying a massive maintenance request has fallen on deaf ears for months.

Braden Day is counting down the days since moving into the Fairfax apartments last year.

“Not a lot of problems here, so it looked great,” he said. “It was right next to work too, so that’s super nice.”

Her only problem on moving day was a small bubble in the corner of her bedroom that leaked with every rain.

Braden says management failed to respond to maintenance requests for months as the bubble grew bigger and bigger.

“Every time I had to go to the office, they let me know that they were waiting for offers to fix the roof,” he said. “Because they have to fix the roof before the ceiling.”

A May storm was the straw that broke the camel’s back.

This bubble eventually gave way, leading to a massive hole nearly a meter in diameter during our visit.

“I’m getting pissed off,” he said in our first story. “But I can’t do anything.”

In Your Corner attempted to speak to management but the door to reception was locked before we could enter.

The complex is owned by Vesta Realty, which has only owned the property for a few months.

But Braden shared emails with new management, where he had asked for help, dating back months.

Vesta responded in our initial story with a statement, saying they don’t know where comms went down, but a fix will be coming soon.

Just two weeks after our story, Braden followed News 4. He says management has patched the hole and all that’s left to do is paint the new place.

He is grateful and hopes the issues will be fully resolved by winter.
