Q: Do you require a co-signer?
A: If you do not have a co-signer, we do require proof of income, background check, and/or proof of scholarship money.
Q: What do I need to do in order to secure a townhome?
A: You will need to pay a deposit for the townhome and sign a lease.
Q: Is there any bonus for signing a lease early?
A: We usually fill up fast and have a waiting list, so by signing early you allow yourself a better choice of location and floor plans. Also, you have a better chance to BRIGHTEN UP YOUR LIVING!
Q: Will you help me find a roommate if I needed one?
A: Yes, we offer a roommate matching service called RoomSync that allows you to self-select who you live with. You will be able to communicate with other applicants also looking. You will connect through Facebook where you will be able to see common interest, mutual friends, etc. Once your application has been approved and your security deposit has been paid you will be sent a link to create your profile.
Q: Do you offer a furniture package?
A: We do not include a furniture package, but we do have information for companies that offer furniture rental.
Q: What happens if our bills exceed the amount paid for the utility package?
A: We keep track of the total of all the monthly utilities. If your utilities go over the monthly allowance, the overage amount will be split between all roommates. Most of our residents do not ever receive an overage notice due to the quality of construction. From time to time we have billed residents being carless with their usage.
