What should I know before I choose a new apartment home?

A lease is a basic agreement between you and the owner of the community. The lease is legally binding and enforceable through the legal system. If they choose to move out before the end of the lease terms, the resident could still be responsible to pay the remainder of the lease agreement.

What deposits are required?

The deposit is based on the credit report and it can be between $250 up to one month of rent if the applicant cannot provide an approved guarantor in order to secure the apartment. If an approved guarantor is provided, the deposit for a studio or 1 bedroom is $250, and $350 for 2 bedrooms. If he/she fails to make payments on the apartment, the guarantor will be responsible to provide those payments. Deposits will be refunded after final inspections are completed with no damages to apartment or furnishings. A guarantor must meet the following criteria: be 27 years of age or older, have good credit standing with a 600+ credit score, and gross 3 times the rental amount monthly.

Do you accept guarantors?

Yes. We accept Guarantors in case that applicant has no or poor credit. The Guarantor must be over 27 years old, have an US address, income of at least 3x's the monthly rent and credit score above 600.

Is renters insurance required?

No, however it is encouraged. Renters insurance is a policy you can purchase to protect your personal property as the management/landlords is not responsible for replacement to tenants.
