Leasing FAQs

How long will it take to find out if my application is approved?
Once all application paperwork is completed, an application is approved or denied within 24-48 hours.
What is the required security deposit?
The security deposit is based on credit. Standard approval is a $500 refundable security deposit and conditional approval requires a refundable one month's rent security deposit.
What is Sure Deposit?
SureDeposit is a program that allows residents to move in for less money up front than a traditional security deposit would require. Instead of paying a standard refundable security deposit of $500 or one month’s rent, the resident has the option to pay a non-refundable premium of $175 for standard approval or $175 non-refundable + $500 refundable for conditional approval. This non-refundable premium, purchases a surety bond that provides protection to the management company in the event that the resident moves out owing money or damages.
What does the restoration fee cover?
The $200 restoration fee reserves your apartment during the application process and becomes a non-refundable restoration fee at move in. At move out, the restoration fee covers the carpet cleaning, and basic apartment cleaning. The restoration fee does not cover damage caused by pets.
