I have a maintenance issue in my apartment. Who should I call for repairs?
If you have any maintenance issues or questions, please first contact your superintendent (See “Tenant Info” page for building specific information). Your superintendent will schedule an appointment with you to inspect the problem and, if possible , he will schedule a time to make any necessary repairs . If he is not able to resolve the problem, he will contact the appropriate person (e.g. plumber or electrician). If you do not receive a timely response, please call our office to report the issue to our Management Department.

My lease is going to expire. How far in advance do I have to submit the renewal form?
The Renewal Lease Form is sent out 3 months prior to your lease expiration. You must fill out the form completely and send it back to our office 30 days prior to your lease expiration. Please note: you must send back the renewal form even if you are not going to renew your lease (See next FAQ). Your failure to respond could result in your lease being “Deemed Renewed,” for an additional one (1) or two (2) year term.
I do not wish to renew my lease. What is the process for vacating the apartment?
If you do not wish to renew your lease you must:
- Fill out the Lease Renewal Form, Part B – Tenants Response to owner. Mark the box which states; “I (we) will not renew my (our) lease…” and return the signed form back to our office; and
- If you have a forwarding address, you can send the information along with the lease renewal form. We will need your forwarding address (in writing) in order to return your security deposit. If you do not have a forwarding address when you decide to vacate, you can send it via e-mail (email@example.com ), mail or fax to our office once you have this information ; and
- Contact your superintendent to schedule a date and time to return keys to the apartment; and
- You must move out all of your belongings and arrange to return your keys on or before the ending date of your lease to avoid a penalty; and
- The apartment must be left “broom cleaned” and in the same condition as it was in upon your occupancy. You will not be penalized for ordinary wear and tear, such as marks on walls and picture hanger holes, but we are appreciative of such repairs.
When should I expect to receive my security deposit after vacating?
If you carry out all of the terms of your lease and move out of the apartment returning it to the owner in good condition, aside from ordinary wear and tear, we will return to you the full amount of your security deposit within a period of 30-60 days after your lease ends. However, if you do not carry out all the terms of your lease, the owner may keep all or part of your security deposit as necessary to compensate the owner for any losses incurred, including missed payments and legal fees.
When and where should I send in my monthly rent payments?
Depending on the building in which you reside , you will receive your rent bill either by mail or hand delivery. Enclosed in your rent bill package each month you will find a summary of charges as well as a return envelope. You will be able to detach a return slip and place the slip along with your payment in the return envelope. Please be sure that the return address is visible in the envelope’s window. Your rent is due on the first of each month.
