MY APPLICATION TO RENT IS APPROVED, WHAT'S THE NEXT STEP?
will have 24 hours to pay your deposit-to-hold. These vary
from $100 to $300 per person, depending on the property. This
deposit will guarantee the property will not be rented to anyone else
for a specified time period.
the lease is not signed by the deadline, the property will be placed
back on the "Available List." The deposit-to-hold is 100%
in other words, should you decide not to sign the lease, you forfeit
the deposit-to-hold. No additional deposit money is
required when you sign the lease. Your
deposit-to-hold converts to a security deposit when
the lease is signed.
I.D. is required
I AM RECEIVING FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE FROM SCHOOL, MAY I PAY RENT
LATER THAN THE DUE
policy for those tenants who receive S.F.A. is as follows:
(deferment policy doesn not apply to leases with monthly payments)
any new tenant's first payment must be paid on time, regardless
of circumstance. It may require using all your savings or
borrowing from friends or family to make a commitment for that first
any further payments may be deferred until the school releases the "overage," with
the stipulation you submit verification from Financial
our office in
any payment due date. (an example would be an "awards
letter" documenting financial aid approval and approximate
disbursement dates.) Unless you provide the necessary
documentation by the deadlines, the $2 a day late fee cannot be waived.
EVERY PERSON ON MY LEASE RESPONSIBLE FOR PAYMENT OF RENT AND UTILITIES?
you have signed a joint contract, YES,
you are each jointly and individually responsible for all
payments. RE: individual leases
in shared housing, you are responsible for your specific amount
of rent only, plus your portion of the household utility bills.
ARE YOUR PAYMENT DATES??
dates for Athens leases can be found on page two of the lease
agreement. We accept cash, check, money order, Visa
or Mastercard. Electronic payments
are subject to an additional 2% convenience fee.
ARE UTILITY BILLS PAID?
are responsible for setting up utility accounts with respective
companies and paying their own utilities for the duration of
their lease, unless it is included in their rent. Your
contract will state if landlord pays for any utility. We
provide our tenants with move-in packets before leases begin.
This packet features utility company names and contact
information. Some utility companies may require a
deposit. If you're sharing a house/apt. with others, normally
each tenant becomes responsible for a particular bill. Most
households designate one individual to be responsible for a
particular utility who then collects each persons share. It is
suggested that you pay your portion of any bill with a check,
endorsed to the specific utility company.
WE HAVE PETS?
with us for allowable types of pets.
or cats are not permitted in the majority of our units.
and allergies in Southeastern Ohio make it difficult to keep these
types of animals in rental property.
YOUR PROPERTIES FURNISHED OR UNFURNISHED?
Athens properties are unfurnished. However, kitchens are
equipped with a stove and refrigerator.
Nelsonville properties, with the exception of 49½, 77½ and
80/86 W. Washington, are furnished with beds, desks and
dressers. Most larger houses have more than one bathroom
and are equiped with coin-operated washers and dryers.
I GET MY SECURITY DEPOSIT BACK?
will, if all utilities are paid and no damages occur during the
tenancy. Our security deposits are low and the majority of
our tenants receive the entire amount minus final water bill and
necessary cleaning (beyond normal wear and tear)
I REQUIRED TO HAVE A CO-SIGNER ON MY LEASE?
though not the "norm," on occasion, we might require a
co-signature on an Athens lease.
we do require a parent / guardian co-signer on each lease.
