Payment of Rent

Rent is due on the first of every month. After the THIRD of the month, a $50.00 flat fee is charged and $10.00 per day (including weekends) late fees will be charged until balance is paid in full. Any tenant who has not paid their rent in full will be subject to late fees and court action as outlined in the lease. Rent is to be paid in the form of personal check, money order, or online via your tenant portal. No cash payments will be accepted. There is a $50.00 charge for each check returned by the bank for nonpayment. Please be aware that a poor rental payment history may affect your credit rating.

General Repairs and Maintenance

When repairs are necessary, you may submit a maintenance request online through your tenant web access.  Our maintenance team will contact you to set up an appointment within 24 hours of your call.

Note: When you agree to a date and time to meet our maintenance team and no one is at the property when maintenance arrives, you will be charged a no-show fee. If we find that the maintenance call is considered an illegitimate claim or a tenant related damage, the tenant will be charged the full service call fee.
