Frequently Asked Questions for Tenants
Once an application is submitted through our website it normally takes 2-3 days for the verification process. If the leasing agent has not contacted you after three days please follow up with them directly. All application fees are charged by a third party company and are therefore non-refundable.
Rent is due on the 1st of the month. Any rent posted after noon on the 5th will be subject to a 10% late fee. Rent will be considered late even if you make a partial payment and fees will be calculated on the full rent amount not on the rent amount still owed.
Set up payments online under the RENT tab on the top tool bar. Under Tenant FAQs, click Resident Log In. If you have already set up your Resident account, simply sign in. If you haven’t registered yet, below the “Sign In” box, find the First Time Visitor? Register Online link. Once logged into account, you may pay rent using your checking account and routing numbers. You can even make it a reoccurring transaction so it will make the payment every month for you. Just set up the amount and the frequency.

In the event of a break in, fire, tenant liability, damage to personal property, flood or other loss issues, the tenant’s losses will not be covered without renters insurance. The policies are fairly inexpensive and worth the small investment.

Yes. If property damage is caused by tenant neglect or improper use, we are required to charge for the maintenance service. Any broken windows or clogged plumbing will also be repaired at tenant’s expense. Please refer to your lease for more specific items not covered by the Landlord.

If you vacate the property before the expiration of the lease term, you will be obligated under the terms of the lease for the rental payments through the remainder of the term or until the property has been re-rented, whichever is less. Tenants shall also pay any rental costs incurred by the Landlord including but not limited to utility charges, leasing fees sustained by the Landlord.
Notices to vacate must be received by your property manager, in writing, at least 30 days before the end of your lease.
After termination of the lease agreement, your manager will do a thorough inspection of your property. They will then send you a check and a statement notifying you of any charges deducted from the deposit. This will be sent out within 14 days from lease termination.
