What if my circumstances change and I have to move before my lease is up?
You are still required to give a 30 day notice as well as pay the rent. Your financial obligation to the lease is not removed with early lease termination. There is not a “buy out” option. When a lease contract is broken a hardship is created for the homeowner. The best way to handle it is to give a 30 day notice, leave the property in move in condition for the next tenant and continue to pay the rent until a new lease is executed. Failure to satisfy the contract can result in derogatory reports to credit agencies and/or a small claims judgment against you. It can have lasting effects on your rental & credit history.
Why do I have to get renters insurance?
To protect your personal content’s and provide liability coverage. The homeowner’s policy only provides coverage for their loss, it does not afford you any protection in the event your personal belongings are damaged/stolen. There is a minimum liability limit of $100,000 and management must be listed as Additional Interest so that we are notified of any policy changes/cancellations.
