Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you allow pets?

    Pets are allowed, when approved, in all of our apartments and houses.  There is a one time pet fee of $150 and a pet agreement required for each animal allowed on the premises.  Additionally, there is a monthly pet rent of $20/month for one cat or a dog under 40 lbs when full grown, and $25/month for two cats or a dog larger than 40 lbs when full grown.  The pet owner must also provide evidence of current pet licensing and inoculations, and a member of our staff must personally meet all pets.  These qualifications must be met before the pet can be moved in.  This policy applies to standard pets, but all unique or exotic pets must be given further consideration.

  • What must I do to rent an apartment or house?
    1. We want anyone interested in our places to contact us about seeing our available units. 
    2. Once you have decided you want to rent from us, we require you fill out an application.  The application can be found at the empty rentals, our office or on this webpage.  
    3. We will then perform a thorough background check on each applicant and select a tenant for the available unit.
    4. Then, we will sign a lease, collect the rent and deposit, and give you the keys.
  • Is there an application fee?

    NO!  It is important for us to research and select the right tenants for our rentals.  We due so at our expense to make the process of finding a new place to live easier on any applicant we deal with.

  • Can I put down a deposit to HOLD an apartment?

    We do allow approved applicants to pay a "holding deposit".  The hold is typically no longer than 2 weeks and amount of the deposit is usually equal to half a month's rent.  The deposit is applied to first month's rent when a lease is signed, but is nonrefundable if the applicant does not rent the apartment.

  • How long of a lease do I have to sign?

    Our standard contract term is for a minimum of 6 months for apartments or 12 months for houses.  A termination fee of one month rent and forfiture of deposit will be charged if Tenant(s) do not fulfill the term of the contract.

  • When do I pay rent?

    Rent is due the first day of each month.  A five day grace period is allowed to accomodate weekends and holidays.  After the fifth day, a late fee is required.

  • Am I responsible for maintenance?

    Tenants are only responsible for changing their light bulbs and smoke alarm batteries. All other maintenance issues should be called into the office.  Repairs are usually performed or problems resolved on the same day.

  • Will my deposit be returned?

    A "standard" clearning fee is deducted from all deposits and varies by apartment size.  In addition, after you have vacated the property it will be inspected for damages outside of normal wear and tear.  Should any damages be found, the cost for making necessary repairs will also be deducted from your deposit.

  • What happens if I break the lease agreement?

    Breaking any of the lease stipulations may result in eviction.
