Have a question about Campustown Rentals?

Lease Type Options

What type of leases does Campustown Rentals offer?

Campustown Rentals offers individual leases, as well as joint & several liability leases.

What is an individual lease?

An individual lease provides each resident with their own separate lease agreement and responsibility for his/her rental installments and applicable utility and parking charges. By signing an individual lease, you are only taking responsibility for your rental installments and lease terms and will not be held liable for any delinquent amounts owed by your roommate(s).

What is a joint & several liability lease?

With a joint & several lease agreement all residents sign one lease agreement. Both the residents and their guarantors are jointly and severally liable for all terms outlined in the lease agreement including the total rent due for the contract. Any revisions to the lease agreement must be agreed upon by all parties. A maximum of 2 persons per bedroom plus 1 additional occupant if the apartment has a loft, will be permitted to reside in the apartment under this type of lease. A conventional lease is required if any of the residents choose to dual-occupy a room within the apartment.

Lease Term & Rental Installments

What is an installment?

The typical lease term is approximately 11.5 months of occupancy which coincides with the university's academic calendar. The resident is charged a total rent amount for the contracted occupancy period. The lease agreement will reflect the total rent amount typically divided into 12 equal installments due August 1 - July 1. These installments do not represent a monthly rent amount and are not prorated.

When is the rent installment due?

Installments are due on the 1st of every month per the payment schedule outlined in the lease agreement.

How can I make my rent payment?

We accept checks, money orders and cashier’s checks in our office at 309 E. Green St. made payable to the community name. Payments may also be mailed to: 309 E.

When is a guarantor required?

All residents signing individual liability leases require a guarantor to complete the guaranty agreement. Guarantors are not required for joint & several liability leases.

Can I be my own guarantor?

A resident signing an individual liability lease can act as their own guarantor if they can show documentation as outlined in the lease agreement that they have income greater than three times the monthly installment.

What paperwork is required with a guarantor?

If you are signing an individual liability lease, the guarantor will need to sign the guaranty agreement. If the resident is not of legal age to execute a contract, the guarantor will be required to sign both the lease and guaranty agreement.
