Q. How much parking is available and what will it cost?A. All apartments have at least 2 or more spaces per apartment. Parking is for tenants only and there is no charge involved for parking.
Q. Do I need a guarantor for my lease?A. Yes. In order to keep our deposits low, all tenants are required to have a "Guarantee of Lease" form completed at the time they sign their lease. Under certain conditions, special arrangements can be made to accommodate unique situations. See our applications page for a sample copy.
Q. How much is the deposit and how is it handled?
A. Each lessee pays a security deposit in an amount equivalent to one month's rent. This amount is a security deposit and not your first or last months rent. A thorough walk through is conducted at move in and deposits are refundable at the end of the lease, based on the condition of the apartment, normal wear and tear excepted.
Q. Am I responsible for my roommates?
A. All lessees are jointly and severally liable for all charges owed under the lease. This means that while each tenant has a right to pay his or her rent separately, all tenants can be held responsible if required payments are not made.
