Please make sure that you are in compliance with such requirements otherwise you will not qualify for the property. If you are unsure please contact our office.

Just Paid Your Deposit

Don’t worry, the property is officially off the market now that the deposit has been paid and Binder Deposit Form has been signed!

Remember if you sign after the 14th you will be charged for the next full month of rent.

Just in case you were wondering, we will be signing the lease and paying the balance online through your new Tenant Portal! Please make sure to allow up to 7 business days for funds to clear. If a lease is to be signed in person, we can arrange for an in-person signing at our Hamden office!
