FAQ 2017-10-08T20:27:38+00:00
When can I view an apartment/duplex/house? 2017-10-08T17:18:36+00:00

Any property listed is available to view, but we need at least 24-hours notice for the current resident.  Contact us to schedule an appointment to view the property, but bear in mind, no unit can be held unless we receive an application.  If there is a specific property you want to see and it is not listed, you can still contact us and we will place you on a waiting list until we know if it will become available or not.

Can I view a unit before it is listed? 2017-10-08T17:14:06+00:00

Typically no.  We do sometimes make exceptions, but please remember that we try to make these exceptions infrequently, and you will not be able to sign a lease until the unit is listed.  Preference is ordinarily given to the current tenants for an opportunity to renew.

How long do your leases run? What are the start/end dates? Do you do short-term leases or month-to-month? 2017-10-08T17:19:27+00:00

Our residential leases are August 1st through July 31st.  We do not do short-term leases or month-to-month.  The only exception is if there is a unit available to sublet in which case the term will ordinarily run from the beginning of the sublease through July 31st.  These will be listed with the available properties, and the listing will state how long the lease will be for.

What utilities or extras are included with rent? 2017-10-08T17:09:20+00:00

This varies with the unit, so check the listing to see what is or is not included.  Typically, in apartments, most utilities are included (water/sewer, garbage, either gas or electricity, and sometimes internet).  In duplexes and houses, tenants are typically responsible for all of their own utilities.

Are pets allowed? 2017-10-08T17:03:59+00:00

For the most part, our rental houses are pet-friendly with prior approval and completion of a pet addendum.  Many of our multi-unit buildings accept pets, but might not permit dogs.  Each listing should say if a particular unit permits pets (and what types), but you can always contact us to check.  Currently, we do not have breed restrictions, but each tenant is responsible to ensure their pet is safe and does not disturb others.

Is there any pet rent or deposits? 2017-10-08T17:06:47+00:00

Yes.  If you are approved to have a pet, there is monthly pet rent, a pet deposit, and a one-time non-refunable service fee.  The only exception is for service or support animals with proper documentation.  Pet rent is a flat rate of $25.00 per animal per month.  The pet deposit is refundable and is $200.00 total in addition to any other rental deposits. Finally, there is a non-refundable service fee of $150.00 charged when your pet addendum is signed.

What if I just sneak a pet in? 2017-10-08T16:56:40+00:00

Sneaking pets in is a bad idea.  We will find out in short order, and then you may be fined up to $400.00, we will have you remove the animal, and you may face other consequences up to and including eviction.

I have a criminal conviction on my record, do I still qualify? 2017-10-08T16:51:25+00:00

Rental qualification is not automatically excluded if a person has a criminal conviction.  We address these situations on a case-by-case basis, and our decision depends in part on what the conviction was for and how long ago it occurred.  You can always apply, just make sure you answer every question honestly and keep in mind as a routine part of the application process we complete credit and criminal history checks.  You can also contact us if you would like to discuss your specific circumstances.

Does everyone who will live in the unit need to fill out an application? 2017-10-08T16:54:00+00:00

Yes, all persons who will live in the unit must complete a separate application.  This includes a separate non-refundable application fee for each applicant.  This does not include minor children planning on living with a parent or legal guardian, however, we will still need to know the number of total persons living in the unit, minors included.
