Future Residents FAQ

When is rent due?

Rent is due on the 1st of the month and late on the 2nd. Rent must be in our office by the end of the business day on the 5th of the month in order to not incur a late payment penalty. If you pay rent after the 5th of the month there is a late rent charge that is assessed equal to $15, or 5% of your total rent, whichever is greater. Any current month rental payments received after the 5th of the month must be in the form of a certified check or money order; no personal checks will be accepted after the 5th. Additionally, all payments made after the 5th must include the applicable late fee.

What am I responsible for as a resident?

Typically, all residents are responsible for:

  • Securing all utilities for the home, unless otherwise provided
  • Lawn care – may vary per property as stated in your Lease
  • Changing the furnace/air conditioning filters regularly
  • Minor repairs to your home, including, but not limited to, to replacing light bulbs and clogged drains
  • Changing the smoke detector batteries during tenancy (these are new when you move in)
  • Pest control
  • Complying with all Homeowner Association Rules, where applicable
  • Following the terms of your lease

How can I pay rent after I move in?

Rent can be paid by personal check or money order until the fifth of the month. After the 5th of the month we will only accept rent in the form of certified funds (money order or bank check). Additionally, late payments must include the late rent charges or they will not be accepted. Your bank should also offer a direct draft check mail service allowing your rent to be drafted and a check mailed monthly. Please inquire about this service.

How do I turn on utilities at my future home?

It is the responsibility of the residents, unless the utilities are included in the lease, to secure utilities (water, electric, gas, etc) for their residence. It is the responsibility of every resident to supply WRITTEN confirmation from the utility company showing an active account prior to picking up the keys to their new home. The verification must have the resident's name/address of leased home and date that service was transferred/started. Please see the Utilities resources section of our website for utility contact information.
