HOW TO GET ON THE WAIT LIST
FOR FALL 2017-2018
Thank you for visiting The Apartment
Store! We will begin accepting applications and security
deposits for our 2017-2018 wait list immediately. If you are
interested in securing an apartment in a specific building or a
specific type of unit, please read the following instructions
thoroughly. Feel free to call our office with any
resident guests have until November 11, 2016 to renew their current
leases. Apartments that are not renewed will be assigned to
applicants on the wait list. Current resident guests who wish
to transfer from one property to another will receive first
priority. Then, assignments will be made in the order in
which applications and security deposits were received and
approved. All assignments will be assessed individually,
assigning each applicant’s first choice that is available.
IF YOU ARE ASSIGNED TO ONE OF YOUR APARTMENT CHOICES, YOU
ARE OBLIGATED TO SIGN A LEASE FOR THE ENTIRE LEASE TERM. IF
WE CANNOT ASSIGN YOU TO ANY OF YOUR APARTMENT CHOICES, YOU WILL BE
RELEASED FROM YOUR APPLICATION AND WILL RECEIVE YOUR SECURITY
