We try to be as flexible as possible, as we know many of our residents are in transition. Furnished stays are a 30-day minimum. After 30 days, you only need to provide a 15-day notice-to-vacate.

For our long-term apartment renters, we offer a lease breakage addendum with a two-month buyout. We can send you this addendum prior to lease signing, so you can review the terms to help you make the best decision possible.

Why are long-term apartment renters charged a move-in fee?

We charge a one-time, move-in fee in lieu of collecting a security deposit. The move-in fee enables you to make the apartment your own. You can paint, hang a TV or pictures on the wall, and you do not need to restore the apartment or make repairs when you move out. If you renew your lease, you do not have to pay this fee again.
