How long of a lease do you typically require?
Typically, leases are for one calendar year. Requests for
six-month leases are handled on an individual basis. We
typically offer a discount on your monthly rent for leases that
are two years or longer!
What kind of security deposit can I expect to pay?
Typically, the security deposit we require is equal to one
month's rent. When we run a credit report on your
application, the computer, based on your credit history, may
require a larger security deposit.
When I move in, how much rent in advance will I have to pay?
If you move in prior to or on the 15th of the month, your rent
will be through the end of the month you move in. If you
move in after the 15th of the month, your rent will be through the
end of the month plus the next month's rent. This rental
amount will be added to your security deposit and pet deposit
Do you allow pets? Do you charge a pet deposit?
Small dogs and cats are welcome. Homeowner's covenants
prohibit any occupant from having more than two pets on the
property. You can expect, under most circumstances, to
submit a pet deposit. This pet deposit will be utilized to
care for the home in the event of pet damage and to pay for
in-depth cleaning after you depart.
