WHAT DOES THE CONSERVATION FEE COVER?

The Conservation Fee is a small recurring monthly charge that helps ensure all appliances and certain utilities are running as efficiently as possible to keep the monthly cost at a minimum.  This also ensures the property can address energy efficiency improvements over time as well as important conservation efforts.  This also includes battery replacements for specific systems in apartment units, LED lightbulbs for apartments and common areas and scheduled AC filter replacements.

Rent is due on the 1st of every month; however there is a grace period until the 3rd. On the 4th, rent is considered late and subject to a fine.

Back To Questions

DO I SIGN MY OWN LEASE OR WITH ROOMMATES?

Each resident is only responsible for the rent on his/her bedroom – this is referred to as “by the bed” leasing rather than a “joint & several” lease. So, if one resident moves out, the remaining roommates are not responsible for that roommate's rent.

WHAT IF MY ROOMMATES DON'T GET ALONG OR I HAVE ISSUES WITH MY ROOMMATES?

Sometimes this happens. Great people sometimes can’t live together for whatever reason. We’ve got you covered. Residents are able to transfer, dependent on availability (a transfer fee may apply).

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING TO MY APARTMENT?

We recommend that you contact your roommates prior to moving-in to coordinate the common area furnishings and items such as; televisions, sound systems, trash cans, plates, silverware, cups, pots & pans, etc. For your own bedroom and personal space, you will need to bring your bath and personal products as well as a shower curtain & hooks, bath mats, towels, linens, pillows, and whatever else will help create your home away from home.

If your apartment is unfurnished, then you will want to coordinate with your roommates about common area furniture (sofa, other chairs, entertainment centers, and dining room tables), etc. Your community's staff members are a great resource for planning your move – don't hesitate to call them with questions or simply to feel reassured about what you've already prepared.

Back To Questions

IS THERE INSURANCE COVERAGE IN THE EVENT OF FIRE, THEFT, OR NATURAL CAUSES? DOES MY LEASE PROVIDE COVERAGE FOR MY BELONGINGS?

Resident's or guest's personal property and vehicles are not insured under the apartment lease agreement. We do require that all residents provide proof of insurance against loss or damage due to fire, theft, vandalism, rain, water, criminal negligent acts of others or any other cause. You can purchase a Renter's Insurance policy for a modest annual fee or your parent's home-owner's policy may provide coverage. Of course, you may also obtain coverage through the property’s sponsored provider. Please ask the Leasing Office for more information.
