Once you have decided to lease at Autumn Woods Apartments,
reservations can be made online 24-hours a day or in our offices
during normal business hours. Apartments are reserved on a
first-come, first-served basis. In order to reserve an apartment,
you must submit an application for all roommates, pay an
application fee for all applicants, and remit an application
- All applications (including Guarantors) must be submitted for
screening either online or in person within 5 business days.
- After all Applications have been submitted for screening, the
Application Deposit (and any additional deposits required) must be
paid online or in person within two business days or the
application process will be canceled.
Once you place an application deposit on an apartment, online or
in-person, the application deposit becomes non-refundable should
you choose not to go through with the lease. Therefore, we ask
everyone to be 100% certain before placing an application deposit
on an apartment.

How do I know which apartment I will get in the
When you submit an application for our apartment waitlist, a
leasing representative will have you fill out a list of location
preferences and other information about the apartment you
We place people into apartments using the preferences provided,
with consideration to how early you rented your apartment. For
example, if two applicants want to be on the second floor and there
is only one apartment available on the second floor, the applicant
who rented first will get the second floor. The other applicant
will get the closest location to what they want. We try to
accommodate everyone’s requests as best as possible, but we are not
always able to honor all of your requests. Remember, the earlier
you rent, the better chance you will have of getting your
preferences. We will notify each resident of their apartment
assignment by early summer.
What is the security deposit?
The security deposit is a monetary amount that is held with the
apartment until after the end of your residency to ensure that you
fulfill your lease obligations. This deposit is NOT USED TOWARD
RENT. It is refundable within 30 days of the end of your residency,
minus any damages or unpaid balances.
Is a Guarantor required?
A guarantor may be required if the applicant does not meet the
income requirements for their selected apartment. The purpose of a
guarantor is to guarantee your payment and adherence to the
contract you sign.
Guarantors MUST live in the United States, provide their social
security number and photo ID for the purpose of being screened, and
meet all other requirements outlined in the Prospect Qualifying
Criteria. The Lease Contract Guaranty must be signed.
What is joint
Joint liability leases bind you to your roommates for the full
amount of the monthly rent and any other balances due, including
any final charges such a cleaning, damages, final utilities, etc.
when processing your Move Out Statement. Among you and your
roommates, you may split the rent as you see fit, but it must all
be paid by the due date. Each roommate may have their own online
account from which they pay their rent. Rent payments by check or
money order are also accepted in our office.
What about security deposit returns?
When you move in, we will give you an Inventory and Condition Form.
It is very important to note the condition of your apartment at
this time. This form will be compared to the condition of your
apartment when you move out. We will also give you details on
exactly what we expect of your apartment when you move out. If you
follow these instructions, you should have no problems receiving a
fair refund if all other balances are covered at the time of move
out and proper notice is given.
Do you offer short
Yes, we offer a variety of lease terms. Some lease terms may be
offered at a premium rate.
