FAQ

 

Lease

As stated in your Lease Agreement,  the apartment is to be professionally cleaned, at tenant’s expense, at move-out or vacancy at lease expiration by a Landlord-approved cleaning company.

Please check the website and/or with One Door Realty, Inc for a list of Landlord-approved cleaning companies.

A copy of the paid Landlord-approved cleaning company’s bill is required at the time of move-out. Tenants must schedule well in advance for their apartment to be cleaned to ensure that the apartment is clean prior to move-out.

If a tenant does not have their apartment cleaned by a Landlord-approved cleaning company prior to move-out, Landlord may hire a cleaning company to clean the apartment and the cost of cleaning, plus a $100.00 Coordination Fee, shall be deducted from the tenant’s Security Deposit.

Our leases are typically 11.5 to 12 months.  The first lease term typically begins between June 6th-9th and ends on May 22nd of each year.  Renewed leases begin on May 22nd for 12 months.  Depending on availability, it is possible to have a shorter lease term, if a lease is signed and commences in July, August or even January.  In these cases, the lease term will still end on May 22nd.

Your Lease Agreement and Rules and Regulations detail the things you need to do and accomplish to properly vacate your apartment.  In fact, your Lease documents outline them in great detail.  Please refer to your Lease documents and contact Management with any questions.

You should review your Lease Agreement thoroughly to determine if there is an early termination clause.  If there is one, you should follow the terms of the clause regarding prior notification to the landlord.  If there is no provision in your Lease Agreement for early termination, discuss your concerns with your landlord.  Abandoning the property will not resolve the issue and may cause you additional expenses or legal problems.

You should first refer to the terms of your Lease Agreement.

In most cases, roommates are considered “tenants in common” and are joint and severally responsible for the terms of the Lease Agreement and all parties named on the lease are responsible for the rent.  Check with your landlord to see if you can make arrangements to have another party take your place on the lease.  Prior to signing any lease, it is always a good idea to have a written understanding among roommates stating individual responsibilities and expectations.
