What is included in the rental installment?

Your monthly rental installment includes: furniture, high speed internet, water, sewer, and trash. Any other fees such as parking, insurance, electricity, etc. will be billed to your account separately. 

What about utilities?

The only utility you will be required to pay is your electricity usage. Residents are responsible for all overages.


How can I make a payment?

We offer the option to pay online through our resident portal. You also have the option to pay in office with certified funds via cashier's check or money order. We do not accept cash or personal checks. 

Will I need a guarantor to lease an apartment?

​Unless your income is greater than 3 times the rental installment or can qualify through our Leap Program, you will need a guarantor. A guarantor must meet the income requirements and credit qualifications. The guarantor is financially responsible and liable for the terms of the lease and rental installments.

What is the advantage of an individual lease?

​With an individual lease, also called by the bedroom lease, you are responsible for your own monthly rent and the regular upkeep of your part of the apartment. Unlike conventional joint leases, you are not responsible for any delinquent amounts owed by your roommates. This means if a roommate moves out early or misses a payment, all other residents are not responsible for making up the difference. 

What is a rental installment?

​The monthly rental installment is your monthly payment for rent. We do not prorate rent, rather you are charged a total rent amount for the lease term divided into equal installments. Rent is due on the 1st of each month. 

Do you have a roommate matching service?

​Yes, we do. Part of the application packet is a Roommate Matching Form that you will be required to complete. This form will ask you questions about your social habits, study habits, and per preferences to help us match you with residents that indicate similar preferences. Please be honest on your Roommate Matching Form.

Can I request specific roommates or units?

​Yes, you can list your preferred roommates on the Roommate Matching Form with your application. All roommates must list each other for us to confirm that all requests are mutual. You can list your floor plan preference on your application and we will do our best to place you in a floor plan that meets your requests. All requests are taken in order by the date your lease was signed and is based on availability.

How are maintenance requests handled?

Maintenance requests can be entered on your resident portal. We have a maintenance team onsite during business hours to assist with any maintenance requests that are entered into the resident portal. After-hours maintenance is available for emergency issues only.

Are you pet friendly?

We LOVE our furry friends at Vue on Walnut! All pets must meet our breed and weight restrictions. The non-refundable pet fee is $250 and the monthly pet rent is $25/month. For more information, please give us a call or stop by the office!
