Rent is due on the 1st of the month. If it is not paid after the grace period, there will be a late fee accessed as outlined in your lease.  We accept cash, money order, or checks made out to Justin Overstreet.

Renter’s Insurance is highly recommended. Renters insurance can protect your personal property against fire, theft, flooding, vandalism etc. You may want to check you parent’s homeowner’s policy for coverage while you are a full-time student or purchase a renter’s insurance policy locally.

Mowing will be provided as a service to the tenants. All trash must be picked up at all times.  If you have pets please clean up after them.

Snow and Ice Removal is the tenants responsibility.  It is recommended to have a shovel and salt on hand for the winter months.

Past Due Balances for all tenants need to be addressed with the office prior to move-out. Keep in mind each tenant is equally responsible for one another’s balance until paid in full. This is your responsibility as a joint lessee. The property is rented under one lease.  You are all responsible for payment in full and condition of all areas of the property.
