Someone has been staying at my place for a long period of time. How does that work?
Do you require renters insurance?
Renters insurance is not required to live at our property but it is highly suggested. Pairing renters insurance with your auto insurance can save you monthly.
How are repairs taken care of, especially in an emergency?
During business hours, we ask that you contact the office immediately so we can address your repair in a timely manner. After business hours, you may contact your manager via the emergency phone number. If your repair is deemed an emergency, we will contact the appropriate vendor to get repair done ASAP . Work orders can also be submitted, 24 hours a day, through your online tenant portal.
When is Maintenance or Landlord allowed to enter my home?
Maintenance or your landlord will only enter your apartment when given permission by a resident or in the case of an emergency (i.e. fire, flooding, health emergencies). We can also give a 24 hour notice to let you know that we will be entering your apartment.
Can a landlord raise my rent during my stay?
If you have signed a fixed term lease agreement, your rent cannot be raised. After the expiration of your lease, your landlord can raise your rent by sending a “Notice of Change of Terms”. In the event you decide to get a pet after you move in, a pet rent would be added to your total rent.
How do I get my security deposit back?
What is the difference between a month to month and a fixed term lease?
A fixed term lease is an agreement that you will be responsible for your unit for a set amount of time, typically 12 months, and if vacating early you will be charged a lease buyout fee. A month to month lease means that you can vacate your unit, with proper notice, at any time.
What’s your Pet policy?
All of our properties accept pets. There is a 25 pound weight limit per animal and a two pet per unit limit. Additionally, we require a pet deposit, equal to one months rent, and a monthly pet rent of $25 per pet. Breed restrictions do apply.
Where is my parking space?
Each unit will have one assigned parking stall that will be given to you at the time of your move in.
How secure is the property?
All of our complexes are gated and most have watchmen during evening hours. Several of our complexes are also secured with video surveillance.
What happens when I don’t pay rent on time?
If you are late, you will be assessed a late fee which is equal to 10% of your total rent. If you are more than 3 days late and have not contacted us, you will be given a 3-day notice to pay or quit. We will always try to work with a tenant on payment arrangements in order to get your rent paid.
I need to move out early and break the terms of my lease. How does this work?
A 60 day notice to vacate is always required to move out. If you are in a fixed term lease, you will be charged a lease buyout fee which is equal to two months rent. If you are in a month to month lease, a 60 day notice to vacate is still required and you will be financially responsible for the entire 60 day period.
