What is the guest policy for my unit?
It is recommended that you contact your Property Manager for details regarding the guest policy for your property as it may be property specific. As a general rule, a guest may not stay overnight for more than 14 days within a 45 day period. We recommend that you contact your Property Manager if you believe a guest may extend the allotted time period. Tenants are responsible for the conduct of all guests and/or visitors while in their apartment, common areas, or grounds.
How do I add a new member to my lease?
It is recommended that you contact your Property Manager to discuss adding a member to your lease. If the member is a minor, you will need to provide the minor’s full name, date of birth, and social security card as proof of identity in order to add them to your household. If you are looking to add an adult to your household, the adult must first submit a rental application to be added to your lease. It is up to the discretion of the Property Manager to approve or deny requests to add new members. The adult must be screened according to our Resident Selection Policy and must be eligible to live in our housing. This process must be completed before you move the new household member into your home.
What is your pet policy?
Our pet policy varies by property. Many of our properties do allow pets with a $250 pet deposit per animal while some do not allow pets at all. All pets require approval from RuralEdge before they are allowed in the unit. Visiting pets are not allowed. Accommodation animals are allowed with proper documentation. No deposit is required with accommodation animals.
