    Lease Agreements

    • The majority of our properties are leased traditionally with Joint and Several leases. All lease holders within an apartment are on the same lease together and share responsibility for everything from rent payments to damage. See Sample Lease section above for a copy of our standard lease.
    • At some of our properties we offer Individual Leases (also referred to as a By The Bed Lease). With an individual lease each resident is the sole lease holder for one bedroom within a shared multi-bedroom apartment. Lessees are only responsible for their own lease and do not have to worry about other residents.

    Utilities

    • Gas/Electric – Duke Energy
      • Residents in all of our apartments and houses are required to transfer electric and gas (if applicable) service into their name prior to move in. We cannot release keys to you if you have not provided proof of transferred Duke Energy services. Anyone without a Social Security Number will have to fill out this form (Duke Energy Identity Verification Form) in order to complete the transfer.
    • Water – Greater Cincinnati Water Works
      • The majority of our apartments have a built in water proration added to the monthly rent installment, so residents do not have to worry about a water bill. However, all single family homes and some apartments do have separate water meters and will be required to transfer service prior to move in. We cannot release keys to you if you have not provided proof of transferred Greater Cincinnati Water Works services.
    • Cable/Internet/Phone
      • Depending on what you’re looking for in cable, internet, and phone service, one of the following companies should be able to suit your needs.
