Back To Questions

Do I sign my own lease or with roommates?

Each resident is only responsible for the rent on his/her bedroom – this is referred to as “by the bed” leasing rather than a “joint & several” lease. So, if one resident moves out, the remaining roommates are not responsible for that roommate's rent.

Back To Questions

What if my roommates don't get along or I have issues with my roommates?

Sometimes this happens. Great people sometimes can’t live together for whatever reason. We can match you up with current residents or new lease holders. You also have the opportunity to transfer apartments, dependent on availability (a transfer fee may apply).

How do I receive mail and packages?

Mail - Resident mail is delivered by the US Postal Service to your assigned mailbox. At move-in, you will receive a mailbox key. When you move-out, if you want to have your mail forwarded, you will need to complete a Change of Address Form with the local US Post Office (the community office often has these handy).

Packages - The property will accept packages and they can be retrieved during the property’s business hours with proper ID – you will also receive a text to your mobile device each time a package is delivered.

Back To Questions

What do I need to bring to my apartment?

We recommend that you contact your roommate(s) prior to moving in, to coordinate for many of the common area furnishings such as: television, stereos, trash cans, plates, silverware, cups, pots and pans, etc. For your own personal space, you will need to bring your own bath and grooming products as well as shower curtain and hooks, bath mat, towels, linens, pillows and whatever else makes you feel at home! Your community's team members are a great resource for planning your move; don't hesitate to call us with questions or simply to feel reassured about what you've already prepared.

Back To Questions

Is there insurance coverage in the event of a fire, theft or natural causes? Does my lease provide coverage for my belongings?

Resident's or guest's personal property and vehicles are not insured under the apartment lease agreement. We do require that all residents provide proof of insurance against loss or damage due to fire, theft, vandalism, rain, water, criminal negligent acts of others or any other cause. You can purchase a Renter's Insurance policy for a modest annual fee or your parent's home-owner's policy may provide coverage. Of course, you may also obtain coverage through the property’s sponsored provider. Please contact the leasing office for more information.
