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

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.

It is not necessary to lease the apartment with other roommates.
However, we are more than willing to accommodate those that already

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.

No. Parking is first come-first served and each resident will
receive a decal for resident parking. We do offer private garages
