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?

Generally, a $1000.00 deposit would be due in order to reserve the apartment. This deposit could be waived if a guarantor also signed for the resident. If he/she 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 the apartment or furnishings. A guarantor must meet the following criteria: is 27 years of age or older, has good credit standing with a 600+ RV Index score and gross income of 3.5 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 replacements to tenants. Replacement of your belongings if they are damaged, lost, or stolen could be covered. TCC does not promote any specific insurance coverage company to use.

What does All-Inclusive Living mean?

Each lease agreement will include rental of a bedroom in each apartment that is fully furnished with full-size bed, shelving, desk, chair, dresser and nightstand. The living/common area that will be shared by other bedrooms in the apartment will include sofa, loveseat, coffee table, end table, dining table with chairs. The 4/4’s include a flatscreen TV in the living room. All appliances will be provided as well, including full-size washer and dryer. Internet is included in rent as well. Each roommate will be responsible for only their rent and utilities.

What type of apartments are available?

The Enclave Apartments offers 2, 3 and 4-bedroom floor plans. With four different options to choose from, ask your leasing specialist which floor plan may work best for you based on what you are looking for in your new apartment home.

How close is The Enclave to UF and Santa Fe?

The Enclave is 1.2 miles from the center of the University of Florida campus and about a 10-15 minute drive from Santa Fe College. We have great interior buses (the only property in Gainesville!) that pick up inside the complex and drop off at all the central locations on the UF campus. We also have city buses that can take your child all over Gainesville including grocery stores, restaurants, and downtown on the weekends!

Do you allowing subletting?

Yes. However, the resident will be responsible for finding his/her own sublet. Once someone has agreed to take over the lease, both parties will work with the leasing team to complete any necessary paperwork.

Can my child pick their roommate?

It is not necessary to lease the apartment with other roommates. However, we are more than willing to accommodate those that already have roommates in mind. Roommate matching forms will be completed at the time of application. Our roommate-matching survey is used to best place each resident with another person that has the same interests based on his/her answers provided.

Do you allow co-ed apartments?

Our policy is to only place residents with those of the same sex, unless the apartment is fully leased with individuals who have a written agreement of the living situation they prefer.

Do you allow non-students?

Yes, if a new resident does not attend school and meets all our approval criteria, he/she can also live at The Enclave Apartments by leasing an entire apartment.  We do offer roommate matching.

What if my child doesn’t get along with his/her new roommates?

We suggest that the roommates have a discussion of boundaries immediately after moving in, even if they have known them for a long time. This will help with establishing guidelines for living together. We ask that roommates attempt to talk about any issues within the household prior to contacting the leasing office. If they are unable to resolve, the leasing team may be able to assist with the outcome on a case-by-case basis.

Do I have to pay for parking?

No. Parking is first come-first served and each resident will receive a decal for resident parking. We do offer private garages for parking or storage for a monthly fee. We also provide free visitor parking throughout the property in spaces marked with a yellow "V".
