RENTAL RATES and LEASE TERMS:
All rental rates are found on our website under the FLOOR PLANS/PRICING/AVAILABILITY tab. We offer various lease terms which can be found under the same tab by clicking into Pricing when an apartment is available.  We offer 6 month to 12 month initial leases only and do not offer month to month initial tenancies. 


APPLICATION PROCESS:
Once your desired, available apartment has been viewed and you would like to move forward, please submit an online application by navigating to the FLOOR PLANS/PRICING/AVAILABILITY tab, selecting the desired floor plan and choosing "View Details", and then selecting "Pricing" for the desired apartment. This brings up the pricing for the various lease terms. From here, select  "Apply Now" under the desired lease term.  Please select a move in date that is within 2 weeks of the estimated availability date. There is a $30 application fee for each applicant. There is a 24-48 hour time period for applications to be screened once all the required information is provided and the screening fee is paid.  Please review the Applicant Screening Policy here.

HOLDING DEPOSITS and LEASE AGREEMENTS:
Once an application has been approved, you will be charged a holding deposit equal to the security deposit and requested to sign a Holding Deposit Agreement. Please note, the payment method you provided to pay the application fee will be automatically charged with the holding deposit amount. The Holding Deposit Agreement will hold the unit for you until the agreed upon date and is refundable only if the apartment will not be ready for occupancy by the agreed upon date.  A sample of the Holding Deposit Agreement can be found here.  In order to commence occupancy, you will be required to sign Landlord's Rental Agreement, and a sample of this document can be found here.  Once occupancy commences, the Holding Deposit converts to the Security Deposit.

PAYMENT METHODS:
Application, Deposit and Move-In Fee payments must be paid by certified funds which include credit card, debit card, or cashier’s check. We do not accept personal checks or money orders for move-in charges.

Monthly Rent payments are made through the secure Resident Portal via electronic bank transfer (ACH), debit card, or credit card. There is no fee for an electronic bank transfer (ACH). A monthly recurring Auto-Payment may be set up.
