How much is the security deposit? Security deposits vary depending upon which community you are applying for, and how many tenants will be on the lease. View the security deposit table by clicking “Security Deposit” on the right-hand margin of each community page.
How do I apply? Each adult (18 years or older) will need to submit an application (download here or visit our leasing office) along with a check for a non-refundable application fee ($40 per adult), and a separate check for the security deposit. We will then contact you after reviewing your information. The security deposit will be refunded in the event your application is not approved.
What are the criteria for acceptance? Each adult tenant must have verifiable income of at least 3 times the monthly rent. This requirement is waived for full time college students attending a local college. Additionally, an applicant must have good credit, no past evictions, and we also perform criminal background checks on all prospective tenants.
Are pets allowed? Advance Properties maintains a no-pet policy. If you notice another tenant with a cat it is most likely because this pet has been “grandfathered” from a time when pets were accepted.
Can I let another person move in or take over my lease? Subletting is not allowed; however, you may take on a roommate provided that person completes an application and is approved by our staff. If you need to leave before your lease expires, you may refer a new tenant to move into your apartment, thereby limiting amounts you would otherwise owe on the lease. The new tenant must complete an application and be approved.
What if I need to break my lease? We understand that circumstances can arise where you cannot meet your lease obligations. In such a case we strongly encourage you to meet with us so that we can work out a solution. Vacating the unit without notifying us will only create more financial burdens. A mutual agreement is in the interest of both of parties.
What if I get transferred by my employer? We offer a job transfer clause for an additional $20 per month (payable with your rent). When you execute your lease let the leasing agent know if you wish to take advantage of this option. Certain requirements will apply. You may add or drop this option at the next renewal of your lease. Transfers of military personnel receive special consideration by law, provided the transfer is for active duty.
Feel free to contact us at 563.359.0307 for any additional questions you may have.
What utilities will I be responsible for? It depends on which of our apartment communities you reside at. On each community page you will see a utility link in the right-hand margin. Click this link for the utility information.
