Issue was resolved. Kim had the leasing office contact me and discovered there was a glitch in the system that caused the high rent increase.
The extra charges were reversed and the shower was fixed so I now have warm water today shower with. I was so satisfied with the resolution that I signed a new lease for 14 months at a rate close to what I am currently paying for my unit.

I have lived in Oak Grove Apartments and Townhouses for 4 years now and the rent increases have usually been pretty reasonable each year. Last year I had some financial issues due to medical conditions and was frequently on the eviction list. When my lease renewal came up this year the rental price for my small 2 bedroom apartment went from $880 per month to over $1700 per month. The building isn’t even ADA friendly and there have not been any upgrades to my apartment since I moved in.
In addition, I have been charged an extra water fee, gas fee, and service fee totaling around $50 per month without receiving any written notice about it before hand. These are supposed to be included in my rent.
I was warned about renting from Morgan Properties by my friends, but I did it anyway. Until now, I really didn’t have any major complaints. This seems like a tactic to get the handicapped guy to move jacking my rent up this way.
Furthermore, I sent 2 messages to them from their site asking if this lease option pricing was a mistake and never received any reply from them.
