Parents

A Company You Can Trust

Parents, we know it’s hard to have your kids ‘leave the nest’ and we are dedicated to making the transition to college life as easy as possible. With nearly 30 years of Property Management experience in the areas surrounding the University of Cincinnati, our staff is dedicated to caring for our Residents. Our company is small but mighty. With 50 full time employees, we’re large enough to provide quality support to our Residents yet small enough to provide a personalized experience and cater to the everyday needs of each Resident.

Safe and Sound

Safety is our top priority. Every single one of our properties features a secure entry, well-lit walkways/parking lots and new photoelectric smoke detectors. We always encourage our Residents to report safety or security concerns to us as quickly as possible so we can address these issues promptly to ensure a safe, secure living experience for all.

24/7 Emergency Maintenance

In addition to our regular, day-to-day maintenance services during normal business hours, we also have a Maintenance Technician on-call for emergencies 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Emergency Maintenance calls are easy; simply call our office at 513-861-9394 and follow the prompts to leave a voicemail for our on-call Maintenance Technician who will follow up with your child promptly.

Co-Signers/Guarantors

Parents, you are not required to co-sign a lease with your child unless they are under the age of 18. Each resident, 18 years and older, will be required to apply individually and sign the lease on their own. For a full description of these types of leases, please see the next section;
– For our Joint and Several Leases, Residents will be required to sign a Lease Agreement with their roommates.
– For Individual Leases, they will only need to sign their own Lease Agreement.

Rental Applications

Every prospective Resident of 18 years and older is required to fill out a Rental Application which will review records relating to their Rental History, Criminal Background and Credit History. A $45 application fee is required in order for each application to be processed.

Which Type of Lease is Best for my College Student?

We’re happy to answer this question for you! We have two types of leases available. Each type differs depending on both the property and the unit itself.

Joint and Several Lease: A majority of our leases are “Joint and Several”. This is what most people would think of as a traditional lease agreement. If your child chooses a unit with this style of leasing, your child and any of their roommates will all sign the same lease together. This lease holds every Resident in the unit responsible for all parts of the lease. (This includes any unpaid rent balance, damages and/or other lease violations.)

Individual/”By-The-Bed” Lease: Our “individual” or “by-the-bed” units resemble a dorm type of style. If a Resident chooses one of these units, they will sign their own lease for an individual bedroom within a shared, multi-bedroom apartment. Other residents will be assigned to the remaining bedrooms in the unit and they will all share the common areas of the apartment. Some properties/units feature private bathrooms whereas others are considered shared spaces. While a Joint and Several lease holds all lease holders responsible jointly, in an individual lease, the lease holder is not responsible for their roommate(s) actions. With the exception of common area damage, which is the joint responsibility of all residents in the unit, your son/daughter is responsible for themselves only. Any properties leased this way will be listed as an “Individual Lease” throughout our website.

Rent Payments

Rent can be easily paid online via Rent Cafè – this links directly with their account in our system and payments show up instantly.

Payments by Mail:
Residents can also mail their payments into or pay in person at our office: Uptown Rental Properties, 2718 Vine Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45219.
