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
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.
Replacement of your belongings if they are damaged, lost, or stolen
could be covered. TCC does not promote any specific insurance
coverage company to use.
