When is a guarantor required?
All residents require a guarantor to complete the guaranty agreement.

Individual 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).

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