Call the 24/7 Maintenance and emergency line immediately. Please attempt to stop any damage if possible. If someone is hurt please dial 911 first.
Can I get another roommate?
You can, depending on your property and situation. There are a few things we require; they must complete a rental application, complete a roommate addition/release addendum if they are coming in at the middle of the lease and a deposit from them. Also rent could change depending on owner preference.
Can I smoke in the house or in the garage?
No. Smoking is not allowed inside any of our properties.
What happens to my security deposit at the end of my lease?
If you have left your unit in the same condition it was in when you first moved in, or better, you may be rewarded with your full deposit back. Keep in mind, a rekey must take place, the cleaning of the home, and the carpet cleaning is required on all of our properties.
Can I move out whenever I want? If I need to end my lease early, what is the process? Is there a lease-break fee?
In order to give us proper notice you must first turn in a 30 day notice to vacate in writing. This could, all things considered, possibly break your lease and help you to get the security deposit retuned quicker, if any is to be returned. We have a form that you can fill out with us in office as well called “30 Day Notice to Vacate”. We can email or fax this to you as well. If you are breaking your lease, there is a $1,000 lease break fee and you are also responsible for any and all vacancy time. In most cases there is about a 1-3 week vacancy time.
