AVOID AT ALL COSTS: This company often takes shortcuts in repairs and often doesn't acquire the required permit to do what they're doing. They do NOT communicate with you on any matter and will try to avoid dealing with any problems. Here's the biggest incident recently: Our building electrical room caught on fire or something of the sort, honestly we were never given an official statement on what caused the power outage but we do know that electrical room was filled with smoke so much so that we were evacuated on on that day and all of the equipment was fried. Which means there was no power to our apartments and therefore no hot water, way to cook (electric utilities), nor heat. This situation WENT ON FOR 5 DAYS. before a health inspector was called by a tenant as our apartments were beginning to reach 50 degrees F in temperature and still the company hadn't said more than when they'd update us (which they didn't when they said they would). After the health inspector came in, the company finally made phone calls to everyone telling us that we had until the next day by noon to leave as the building was deemed uninhabitable until February 1st, when repairs are expected to be made by. So, are you wondering if the company was helpful in this 16 hour notice? Nope! The assistant making the calls, Victoria, was incredibly rude. She wouldn't let me get one word in and kept telling me to stop arguing with her even though all I did was ask well what should we do? It's a pandemic, in the middle of winter, and this is short notice. Where should we go? Who is going to cover this? Is there a way I can speak with your boss since you don't know these answers. Mind you I also tried to call multiple times this day and the day before to figure out what was going on because we had gone so long without information and power. The company's response was that if we took out renter's insurance, we should be fine however, this is not covered by the insurance.... Good luck if you choose to rent with them I rented from winter 2020 through winter 2020. ...


I lived in the basement apartment in 5920 Walnut Street for one year while I was in graduate school. The apartment was very small, cozy if you speak realtor. It was fine for the first couple of months and cheap, which is always a plus. Starting with the three week long snowmageddon that hit Pittsburgh, I suffered through various leaks and floods. The maintenance staff did what they could, but they were only authorized to do so much. On top of that, there were only a couple of maintenance workers for a number of properties with lots of problems. The laundry room in the 5920 building floods every time there is a heavy rain. When there was snow, leaks happened from every ceiling, from the third floor to the basement, something I learned when I was moving out and talked to a renter on the fourth floor; he was moving out because of the Realty’s lack of care for tenants. Maintenance was not allowed to fix the break in the masonry outside the fourth-floor apartment; they had to settle for a cheap patch that isn't going to hold. And 6 months later the interior walls were still peeling off in his apartment. I had a steam leak from a completely rotted through pipe. Kamin Realty did nothing to make up for or to fix these problems. They only allowed the maintenance staff to do damage control after whatever caused the problem (usually the weather) had stopped happening. The carpets were stained from all of these leaks, none of which I caused and all of which I attempted to lessen the damage from, yet the realty still took money out of the deposit for damages, despite the fact that they resulted from the realty's own terrible building upkeep. We think there is mold under the floor in this apartment now but Allegheny County Health isn't interested in checking it out. I rented from summer '09 through summer 10. ...
