Apartment residents forced to move out during renovations

Residents of one Virginia complex are moving out while the building is redone.

Residents of one Virginia complex are moving out while the building is redone.

Residents of an apartment complex in Ballston, Virginia, are moving out of their homes temporarily while the building undergoes significant renovations, but not all residents are pleased, the TV station TBD reports.

Those living in the building have even started a blog to voice their frustration about the decision, according to the station. One poster expressed their anger, saying, "I cannot believe that I am to pack up everything in my apartment - including 40 boxes of books, not to mention shelves of glassware and pottery and pictures on the walls."

Many tenants are also concerned about the rent increases that they will have to pay following the increase. The building manager told the station that those hikes will likely be between $125 and $150. The management company will also give residents moving assistance during the project, although that won't include any moving boxes or packing help.

During the renovation, those affected will be moved to a vacant apartment in the building, ARLnow.com reports. After construction is complete, they will have the option of moving back to their old apartment or staying where they are.ADNFCR-3450-ID-19934217-ADNFCR
