Answer:Each 2 units share a single large waterheater. Because of this, we pay for the water and part of the electric (for heating the water and the community lighting). These are separately metered and paid for by our office. Each unit has it’s own meter for the rest of the electric. We also cover the lawn care for the grounds and regular pest control.

Please note the following:

  • You can rent a wireless cable modem from Suddenlink ($10/mo) or purchase your own (roughly $50-$100). We recommend purchasing your own as a new modem would pay for itself in less than one year.

Answer:Yes, all new leases include units updated with washers and dryers.
Answer:Not sure. College Station Utilities does not make that public to us. The policy may have changed since writing this. You can reach them at:

Utility Customer Service
310 Krenek Tap Rd
PO Box 10230
College Station, TX 77840

979-764-3535 , 800-849-6623
979-764-ePAY , 979-764-3791 (fax)

Answer:Yes. There are no additional parking fees.
Answer:Yes, we do allow pets. Up to two pets allowed. No more than 50 lbs combined weight.

The fee for the first pet is $400 and $200 for a second pet. We do not charge a monthly pet rent.

The following breeds are restricted: Pit Bull, Staffordshire Terriers, Rottweilers, German Shepherds, Akitas and all other aggressive breeds.

Pet owners are responsible for cleaning up all poop that their pet produces on the property. Failure to pick up after your pet will result in a $50 fine per occurrence.

A pet agreement must be turned in to our office with any applicable fees BEFORE the pet(s) is brought on to the property.

Answer:Please review your lease packet for specific dates, but typically tour rent is due on or before the 1st of the month. Your rent can be dropped off or mailed to the address at the UPS Store on Texas Ave., in the Kohl’s shopping center:

Holik Square
1511 Texas Ave. S. #175
College Station, TX 77840

If you choose to drop your rent of in person, it must be received on or before the due date. Please observe weekend and holiday hours of The UPS Store to ensure that it is there on time. If you mail it, it must be received by the due date, not just postmarked by the due date.

Answer:We typically offer only annual (12 month) or longer leases. This is especially true for leases beginning in late July or early August. It will be very rare for us to still have availability by that time. We typically only have availability in (late/early) Dec/Jan, May/Jun, and Jul/Aug.

In the rare occasion that we have a unit that is still available after August 1st, we will offer a shorter term lease on it. Preferring at lease a May ending, but going off of the waitlist at that point. So if you’re looking to lease for just the fall, or the fall and spring, you can check our availability then and contact us if there is an opening.

The other exceptions would be for the occasional December/January or May/June ending leases which is usually from a tenant that lived there long-term and was extended as a special case. Also in the case where someone were evicted for any reason. This type of unit availability and lease is rare and would be decided on a case-by-case basis.

We do offer longer than a one year lease for those who would like to lock their rental rate in at the current pricing. Our rents have never gone down from one year to the next, so it could be a good investment.

Answer:We use an industry standard Texas Apartment Association lease contract and application form. If you have leased before, it is likely just the newest version of what you previously signed. We do not currently have “online” applications. If you are interested in a unit, we can schedule a time for you to view the unit. If you decide to lease, then we will sit down with you and complete the application and lease paperwork. Your application fees and deposit will be due at time of lease signing. Your prorated 1st month’s rent and any pet addendum deposits can be paid when you pick up your keys at move-in time.

We have a written qualification policy that covers whether or not you will need a guarantor. Unless you have been gainfully employed for two years, you will likely need a lease guarantor. That form can be downloaded and faxed in by your guarantor, so they do not have to attend the lease signing in person. If they are interested in attending, they are more than welcome as they will become party to the lease.

All Leases Are Signed Electronically.

Once your paperwork is completed, it will be processed by the property management personnel. They will notify you when the paperwork is completed and approved.

If you want more details on the TAA lease, you can check their website at www.taa.org and search for “TAA Lease Contract Overview Video” which is an instructional video overview of the lease.

Thank you.

Answer:Please review your signed lease contract agreement for the specifics of your situation. Typically it is due on your move-in date, even if you don’t move in until later. Late fees do apply to the first month, so please get them in on time.
Answer:The morning of move-in, the door will be unlocked for you. We leave the keys in the freezer and there will be a move-in packet in the kitchen.
