If I don’t have a guarantor, how can I still qualify to live here?
If you do not qualify individually or have a guarantor to sign with, we’ve partnered with Leap, a lease guaranty service, to offer an additional way to qualify. Visit LeapEasy.com to learn more!
• If you are a student, you can enroll in our Guarantor Waiver Program through your online application. The cost for this service is $37 per month to be paid directly to the property with your monthly installment amount. Please contact the property directly for detailed instructions on how to select this option on the online application.
Will I need a guarantor for my lease?
If you do not meet the qualifying criteria when applying individually (proving you make 2 times the monthly rent) or fail to pass our background and credit check then you will need a guarantor or to pay the entire lease term up front.
What is a guarantor?
A guarantor is an individual that signs a lease agreement along with a renter promising to uphold the lease agreement in the event a renter defaults on their financial obligations. The guarantor can be a parent, spouse, extended family member, or a friend but will need to be in good financial standing and pass all necessary screenings.
What is Individual Leasing?
Individual Leasing, also called “by the bedroom leasing”, means that you are only responsible for your bedroom, bathroom, and shared common area. If another roommate decides to skip, sublet/lease-takeover, or damage the apartment in any way they are liable for the rent and damages in their individual space, unlike in joint leases.
How do I apply for an apartment?
To apply for our apartments, simply click the Apply Now button to begin an application. Once you have provided us with all necessary information we will run a background check and confirm that you are qualified to live at our property. If you have any questions along the way feel free to contact our office directly for assistance or clarification!
