5. Leases commence on the 1st day of a month and terminate on the last day of a month. Rent for move-in at other times of the month will be pro-rated.
Q: How much security deposit is required?
A: CTBestApts has partnered with Sure Deposit to provide you with an attractive alternative to a traditional security deposit. Simply pay a onetime non-refundable low cost premium, instead of a traditional security deposit. Of course, you always have the option for a traditional security deposit as well. We typically require the equivalent of one or two month’s rent, depending on one’s credit standing and other criteria. The traditional security deposit must be delivered in the form of a certified bank check, money order, debit or credit card, and it must be paid in full prior to taking occupancy.
Q: Do you accept personal checks?
A: We accept personal checks for monthly rent payments, except your first month’s payment. Before you take occupancy, we ask for your cooperation in paying the security deposit and first month’s rent in the form of a certified bank check, money order, debit or credit card.
