Leasing

What is the length of the lease?

12 months only.  

We do allow subletting if you plan to be away from Ithaca at any point of time during your lease.


Do you allow subletting?

Yes we do, but the tenants are responsible for finding the subletter as we do not get involved with the process. Please download the sublease agreement from your specific property.


The security deposit (equal to one month’s rent), the first month’s installment of rent, and the last month’s installment of rent.

What is due at the time signing?


No, as long as you are 18 years or older we do not require a co-signer.

Do I need a co-signer for the lease contract?


Rent payment

Do you prorate the rent?

Our standard lease eliminates the need for pro-rating rent the first and/or last month of the lease term making it easier to remember the rent installment amount due each month.  The bottom line is that you are making installment payments on the entire amount of your lease. The pro rata discount is already factored into those installments. An installment lease plan takes the total rent due for the term of the lease and divides it into equal monthly installments. These are not rent payments for the month, instead they are installment payments. If you actually had a lease for the entire year, which is never the case, then the cost, and the related monthly installments, would be higher. You will find that this is how practically all leases are handled here in Ithaca. This allows time for you to move out, for us to fix the place up as needed, and to move someone else in.


How do I pay my rent and/or Security Deposit?

All payments must be made through the electronic online tenant portal. You are able to use a credit card (fees apply), or an eCheck/ACH option (no fees apply).


$50.00

How much is the late fee if I don’t pay my rent on time?

What utilities are not included in the rental rate?


It all depends on your usage and the time of year. On average, the price ranges between $30-$40 per person per month.

What is the approximate monthly cost of these utilities?


This is necessary to be done prior to your lease start date. Please call NYSEG at 1-800-572-1111; when it prompts you, please select the option to “set up a new service”. Information needed to set up the utilities are service address, unit number, and meter number - this is something you will receive in your digital welcome packet.  

This must be completed and effective on the first day of your lease term.

Move-in day

Before the lease term starts, you will receive a digital welcome packet which has all of the necessary information to ensure your day goes smoothly. In addition, all meter numbers and door codes will be in this packet which is essential to have prior to your arrival. Utilities must be switched into your name effective on the first day of your lease term.  All renter’s insurance and completed animal policies must also be handed in or emailed to management prior to your arrival.

What are the proper move-in procedures?



To enter the building you can either utilize the intercom system adjacent to the main entrance. Scroll to find your name, select call, and it will ring to your cell phone number. Once you answer you will then press 9 on your phone and it will remotely buzz you in. All necessary keys and fobs will be on the kitchen counter once you arrive into your apartment by using the provided door code in the welcome packet.
