FAQ

What should I know before my son/daughter chooses a new apartment home?

A lease is a basic agreement between your child and the owner of the community. The lease is legally binding and enforceable through the legal system. If they choose to move out before the end of the lease terms, the resident could still be responsible to pay the remainder of the lease agreement.

What deposits are required?

Deposits are equal to one month of rent, but can be waived with approved credit and income equal to 3x the monthly rent. This deposit can also be waived if an approved guarantor is provided. If tenant fails to make payments on the apartment, the guarantor will be responsible to provide those payments. Deposits will be refunded after final inspections are completed with no damages to apartment or furnishings. A guarantor must meet the following criteria: be 27 years of age or older, have good credit standing, and gross 3 times the rental amount monthly.

Is renters insurance required?

No, however it is encouraged. Renters insurance is a policy you can purchase to protect your personal property as the management/landlords is not responsible for replacement to tenants. Replacement of your belongings if they are damaged, lost, or stolen could be covered. TCC doesn’t not promote any specific insurance coverage company to use.
