For your convenience, a mail slot is available for your payment. Late fees are assessed 6 days after your rent is due per your rental agreement. Our standard late fee is $50.00.

Issuance of Keys
Keys to your property will be issued the day before your lease start date. All deposits and rent due must be paid prior to the issuing of keys.

You should complete this document and return it to our office within seven days following the signing of your rental agreement. After move in, no cars are allowed to be parked on the lawn. Smoking is not allowed inside any of the properties!
Late Fee Policy
If your rent is received one or more days late you will be charged the late fee as set forth in the rental agreement. Your rental agreement states that rent, late charges, and other legitimate charges will be posted to the resident account. Payments received are applied to the oldest outstanding charge first. If there is an outstanding charge on your account when your rent is due, payments will be applied toward the outstanding charges first and then toward the current rent charge. If the payment is not sufficient to cover past due charges as well as the current rent charge, your current rent will be short. If the rent is short you will incur a late charge. To avoid late charges be sure to pay all rent timely and any charges posted on your account by the time your current rent is due.
Your rental agreement states the amount you will be charged for each returned check. Our current fee is $35.00 for each check returned. You will be charged this fee even if the check clears upon re-submission to the bank. In addition, if the returned check is for payment of rent, you will be charged late fees.
