Does your community offer on-site security?
You can enjoy the peace of mind provided by our community’s secured entries, onsite management and maintenance teams. We also offer after-hours security patrol.
How are maintenance issues handled when the office is closed?
To ensure our residents are cared for at all times, we proudly offer on-call maintenance for emergencies outside of office hours.
Are there limitations on how I can decorate my new home?
We want you to make the space your own! You are welcome to hang pictures, mount televisions, or add shelving to your walls. We do not allow residents to paint or make any permanent changes to the home. Please review what we classify as normal wear and tear before making any modifications to ensure you do not incur restoration charges upon moving out. This is not our fully comprehensive policy, only an excerpt. All restoration charges are based on the move out inspection.
Walls & Paint: Standard wear and tear to walls in an apartment would be considered, but not limited to holes in the wall larger than a dime, major discoloration of paint, scuff marks, water damage, scratches, damaged corners, soot from candles, pet damages, etc.
Carpet & Flooring: Standard wear and tear to carpet consists of patterns in the carpet where the furniture sat and very light increases in traffic patterns. Some examples of excessive wear and tear to the carpets and flooring would be considered, but not limited to scratched, tears, rips, vinyl, carpet, or linoleum, heavy traffic patterns (largely due to failure to vacuum frequently), burns, stains, pet damages, etc.
Property & Appliances: Standard wear and tear to property and appliances consists of wearing out hinges, doors/locks, missing door stops, etc. All issues such as these should be reported to the leasing office to ensure timely services. Some examples of excessive wear and tear to the property and appliances would be considered, but not limited to evident tears in screen doors, pet damage, etc.
