Please contact your building's Janitor to arrange your move in 2 weeks in advance. Your lease MUST be signed and security deposit and 1st month's rent paid in full BEFORE you move in.
Out of courtesy for your neighbors, we ask that when throwing garbage out, please make certain that the garbage is placed in a tightly wrapped and fastened plastic bag. Doing so will lessen the clean-up problems and the staff will have more time to service the individual needs of the residents.
We must also ask that if your bell rings, please use the front intercom and ask the party in the lobby to identify themselves. If you do not know the party, please do not let them in the building. This will help maintain the security of the building and a peaceful environment for the residents.
Bicycles do not belong in any apartments. Please see that you secure a safe place for them. Check with your janitor for help.
We are happy you have chosen our building as your new home and hope that all goes well during your tenancy. If you have any questions the building staff cannot answer, please call our office between 9:00 AM and 4:30 PM weekdays and we will try to accommodate you.
We appreciate your tenancy, and we hate to see you go! To ensure that your move-out goes as smoothly as possible, please take a few moments to review our move-out procedures.
-Schedule your move-out with the building staff two weeks in advance
-Prepare your apartment for inspection
-Clean out your storage locker
-Turn in your security deposit request form
-Notify the utility companies of your move
To schedule your move-out date and time, please call your building janitor. They will help you reserve the elevator(if applicable) and schedule a walk-through of your apartment. It is at this time that you will turn over your keys and garage door opener (if you have one). Your keys must be turned over by 5:00pm on the last day of your lease.
We want to be able to refund your full security deposit, but sometimes we have to deduct for cleaning charges if the apartment is turned over in poor condition. Please review the following charges that you will incur if your apartment does not pass inspection:
$30 for cleaning refrigerator
$40 for cleaning bathroom fixtures and tiles
$40 for cleaning stove and broiler
$150 for repairing broken windows
$85 for each room that needs a second coat of paint
$250 per room for wall paper removal
$100 for damage done to doors
$3.00 per square foot for excess damage to flooring
$25 per missing key
$75 per missing mailbox key
In order for us to return your security deposit in a timely manner, we need to know where you are moving. Download the Security Deposit Refund Form from the Documents section of this website, and return it to our office via mail, fax (847-328-3071) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Your security deposit refund will be mailed to your specified forwarding address within 21-45 days of your lease expiration.
