Application & Rental Process
View apartment: Call the office during regular business hours to schedule an appointment to look at available rentals.
Complete application: If you find an apartment that you would like to rent, complete an application. Each adult who will occupy the apartment must complete a separate application. A fee of $15 must be paid (one fee per apartment) before the application can be processed. Processing includes checking your credit history and any rental references.
Security deposit: The security deposit is equal to one month's rent and can be fully refundable. In addition to the first month's rent, the security deposit is due when you complete your lease and receive the keys. You can also reserve an apartment in advance by paying the security deposit.
Lease agreement: Leases are usually scheduled to end in the spring of the following year. If your lease began in May of 2007, a typical ending date would be May of 2008. If you rent in October 2007, your lease would typically still end in May of 2008.
After your initial lease ends, you may continue to rent on a month-to-month basis, or you may request to sign a new lease
