What should I know before I choose a new apartment home?

A lease is a basic agreement between you and the owner of the community. The lease is legally binding and enforceable through the legal system. If you choose to move out before the end of the lease terms, you could still be responsible to pay the remainder of the lease agreement.

What type of leases do we offer?

We offer individual leases and joint leases.

What’s the difference between a Joint Lease and an Individual lease?

An individual lease is when you rent a bedroom and are responsible for that particular room and jointly liable for the common areas. A joint lease is when you rent the entire apartment in which you assume responsibility for the entire unit.

Do I have to provide a guarantor/co-signer?

The lease guarantor in a rental agreement is someone who signs onto the lease agreement and is financially responsible if the other parties on the lease default with payments or incurs charges. Oxford Manor will accept a security deposit in lieu of a guarantor.

Do I have to pay a deposit?

If you do not provide an approved guarantor you will need to pay a deposit to reserve your apartment. The deposit varies by lease.

What is included in the rental price?

All the community amenities, high speed internet, pest control, and emergency maintenance.

Are utilities included?

You are responsible for water, sewer, electric and wastewater.

What is your pet policy?

We are pet friendly with no breed restrictions up to 80 lbs. The pet fee is $350 per pet, and pet rent is $45/monthly per pet. Pets are allowed for joint leases only. 

What happens when there's a maintenance problem in the apartment?

You can call the front office or put in a maintenance request on our community website.

If I want to paint, is there a redecoration fee?

Painting is allowed. We ask that you return the painted wall back to its original state before you move out. If not, then there will be a redecoration fee.

Do you offer roommate matching?

We do offer roommate matching. If you have a preferred roommate you can request to live with that person.

When is move-in day?

Please call our office for move in and move out dates.

Can I terminate my lease?

We do not allow lease termination however, we offer reassignments. A reassignment is having someone take over the leasing contract so that you are no longer legally obligated to fulfilling the lease agreement. (More details available in office)

What if I don’t get along with my new roommates?

We suggest that the roommates have a discussion of boundaries immediately after moving in, even if they have known them for a long time. This will help with establishing guidelines for living together. We ask that roommates attempt to talk about any issues within the household prior to contacting the leasing office. If they are unable to resolve, the leasing team may be able to assist with the outcome on a case-by-case basis.
