Birchwood Villas - Manhattan, KS has yet not published prices.
My sister lived the Birchwood Villas a 55+ community in Manhattan, KS. She lived in the community for over a year and half and paid market rate. She died May 9, and we were told by Suzanne Perez (reported facility manager) on the exit walk through that the initial deposit of $200 would be refunded as there was no damage to the property. BUT HERE IT COMES...…..We were recently notified with a letter on 6/1/2018 that the $200 deposit would not be refunded as it was their policy not to refund the deposit if the lease was broken. I DO NOT CONSIDER DEATH TO BE A BROKEN LEASE. While this is not a large sum of money, I feel this is a loss of integrity and there are many families that may depend on these funds after a family member has passed away. I am more concerned with the integrity aspect of saying one thing and then later doing another by a letter and with no real reasoning as the $250 deposit for a pet was refunded less the $150 carpet cleaning. Seems to be some incongruencies and again some integrity concerns. Please note: This is a HUD tax credit program with the government funds
My sister lived in Birchwood Villas, Manhattan Kansas for several years and died in May 2018. Her daughter was advised the apartment was okay and she would get her deposit after a walk thru. My niece (my sisters daughter) has now been advised because my sister broke her lease it is their policy not to return the deposits. I DON'T CONSIDER DEATH TO BE A BREAKING OF A LEASE.
Birchwood Villas is independent living at it's finest. My Mom loves it here where she is getting to know her neighbors who are absolutely awesome and she is settling in nicely. My Mom enjoys cooking her own meals in her beautiful apartment. There is plenty of storage throughout the apartment. My children love to come and visit my Mom and said they would love to live there too. The view offered from my Mom's apartment is absolutely breathtaking. Birchwood Villas provides a beautiful scenic view where you can see the west side of town and fields where horses are grazing. The sunsets are beautiful and so peaceful. The staff are truly nice people whom are very caring, loving, and attentive.
