The cosigner must also make three (3) times the amount of one (1) installment. CRITERIA: 1. Occupancy Recommendations 2 occupants per bedroom in a Conventional Lease Agreement. A family may occupy an apartment if the family does not exceed two persons per bedroom plus a child who is less than twenty four (24) months old and sleeps in the same bedroom with the child's parent, guardian, legal custodian, or a person applying for that status. Residents who have a child less than twenty four (24) months old at the time of the rental application or lease renewal and whose child has reached twenty four months of age during the lease term will be required to transfer to another apartment at the end of the lease term. For the purpose of this occupancy policy a "family" shall consist of the following : one or more individuals (who have not attained the age of 18 years) being domiciled with: (1) a parent or other person having legal custody of such individual or individuals; or (2) the designee of such parent or other parent having such custody, with the written permission of such parent or other person. The term "family" shall also apply to any person who is pregnant or is in the process of securing legal custody of any individual who has not attained the age of 18. 2. By The Bed Leasing versus Conventional Leasing – A Conventional Lease Agreement lists all occupants as lease signers for the entire apartment therefore making all occupants responsible for the entire contract. An Individual, By The Bed Lease Agreement adjusts the contract to reflect one lease signer per bedroom where that lease signer is only responsible for their portion as indicated on their individualized lease contract. A By The Bed lease signer shares responsibility of the common living area and the utilities with the other apartment dwellers. By The Bed leases allow 1 (one) person per bedroom without exception. In addition, a By The Bed lease signer understands they can be roommate matched without notice or permission. The Block reserves the right to limit the number of By The Bed leases available. A $25.00 recurring fee will be incurred for the By The Bed leasing option. This fee is subject to change at any time. A Conventional Lease Agreement must be in place for 2 (two) residents to share 1 (one) bedspace. All residents in one unit must be under the same lease option either all on a By The Bed Lease or all on a Conventional Lease. All bed spaces must be legally occupied or pre leased in order to renew or be assigned to a particular unit unless a written exception is provided by Management. 3. Pet Policy Only two (2) pets max per apartment. A $500 pet deposit is required for 1 pet with ½ of the $500 deposit refundable. An $800 pet deposit is required for 2 pets with ½ of the $800 deposit refundable. Animals used as disability assistance are not considered as pets under this policy. No exotic pets or restricted breeds as defined by the American Kennel Association can be allowed. All city ordinances apply. 4. Application Fee, Administrative Fee, Deposit, and Transfers – A $250 non refundable fee is required per bedspace. A $50 non refundable application fee is required to process additional applicants for the same bedspace. This fee covers the application fee and administration fee and is not refundable under any circumstance. All applicants must complete a separate rental application. If an applicant chooses to transfer to another apartment or location after original application, applicant will be required to pay a transfer fee as outlined in the Lease Agreement. Failure to submit all requred documents before the deadline outlined on the Lease Agreement will result in a forfeit of all specials and concessions. 5. Installment Program – This lease is not a per diem lease agreement. There is a lump sum to occupy the space in the date parameters outlined in the Lease Agreement. As a courtesy, the Lease Signer has the option to divide the lump sum contract amount into equal installments. The first monthly installment is due on or before the Starting Date of Lease Term. The next installment is due and payable on st the 1 of the following month.
