  • What is a rent installment vs. monthly rent?

    Your lease contract values the rent as a sum due for the entirety of the contract (lease start to lease end date). That total is then split into 12 equal installments over the course of that term. Rent can be paid in one lump sum prior to moving in, or can be paid in the 12 equal installments at the beginning of each month of the contract.

  • Is insurance required?

    Personal Liability Insurance coverage of $100,000 is required for each resident. You may contract this policy through your provider of choice, or through our our partners at Multi Family Insurance Partners. (Learn more in the "Resources" section of this website.)

  • What is an individual lease?

    An individual lease is a per-bed lease. You sign a lease for a bed in the apartment and share common areas with roommates. This allows you to live with roommates without having to worry about whether they’re going to pay on time. You do have the option to lease out the enitre unit, should you choose to do so.
