WHAT IS AN INDIVIDUAL
An individual lease provides each resident with
their own separate lease agreement and responsibility for only
their monthly rent installment and applicable utility and parking
charges, if any. By signing an individual lease, you are only
taking responsibility for your rent installment and lease terms and
will not be held liable for any delinquent amounts owed by your
roommates. As a Guarantor, you will only be responsible for the
individual you wish to guarantee payment for.

Leases are one year long, starting on September
15 and ending August 31.
CAN I SUBLET MY ROOM?
Yes. We refer to it as a replacement of your
contract because you are in fact replacing the obligated party. If
you have a potential replacement in mind, you must contact building
management to manage the replacement of your lease agreement. The
potential replacement would need to meet the qualification
guidelines and pay any applicable fees associated with leasing
process. Building management can also work to help you find a
replacement if the property is at full capacity and has a waitlist.
However, you are ultimately responsible for your lease obligations
until an approved replacement has been found.

owed by the roommate. In the event that you have an empty bedroom
in your unit, there is always a chance that you may receive a
roommate at any time. In the event that we lease that bedroom, you
will be notified at least 24 hours in advance before the potential
