What does Individual Leasing mean?

Each resident signs their own lease for their specific bedroom. So, if a roommate moves out, the other residents are not responsible for that person’s rent. Please note that common areas are a shared space.

What are rental installments? Why is my rent not prorated?

A rental installment is a payment made as part of a series of payments. To simplify the billing process, the entire sum of the housing contract is divided into EQUAL installments. Instead of reducing the first installment and increasing the remaining installments, all installments are equal. These installments are factored into the start and end dates of the lease, including proration.

Does Apella have parking? Is is included in my rent?

Our community does offer garage and motorcycle/scooter parking options for our residents. Due to limited availability, garage parking will be available at an additional $150 per month, and motorcycle/scooter parking will be available at $50 per month. These are limited spaces and will run out quickly, so make sure to ask a leasing member how to add these!
