What if my rent is late?

Your rent is due and expected on the 1st of each month as specified in your Lease Agreement. Any payment not received on time is subject to a late payment penalty of 10% plus the Base Monthly Rent.  Remember that chronic late payments may result in legal measures that may lead to your eviction.

What do I do if I lose my key?

It is important to take care of your entrance keys.  Occasionally, you may find yourself locked out of your home or in need of a replacement key.  If this occurs, there will be a $15.00 charge.

Can I extend my lease on a month-to-month basis?

Yes, there is a 25% monthly premium added to the existing monthly rent payment (I.E. if your current monthly rent payment is $1500, the premium for a month-to-month option would bring the total payment to $1875 or $375 for the premium).  It is company policy to have a formal written agreement within at least 30 days prior to the current lease’s expiration date.  Month-to month options must be paid in full at the designated start date and are not prorated or based on occupancy or departure dates.

Why do I need renter’s insurance?
