Good Noblesville apartments have more than one payment method to make paying rent as simple as possible, including electronic and auto-pay options. Ask your new community what methods they offer and how each one works. You can also inquire about if you’ll be charged any convenience fees for paperless payments.

You also should know your community’s overdue payment policy. Many leasing offices have a one or two day grace period and then a late fee that increases with time. Ask when payment is due and who to talk to if you experience a hardship that will interfere with paying your rent by the due date.

What Is The Guest Policy For Your Noblesville Apartment And Amenities?

If you want to host loved ones for more than a few days, you should learn your community’s guest policy. Most leases prohibit guests from staying with you beyond 3 days without clearing it with the property manager. There are also guest policies for using community amenities like the fitness center or swimming pool. If you’d like to bring your training buddy to try the treadmills, find out if guests are allowed first. Or, if your child wants a pool party, ask how many guests are allowed and their procedures and policies.

What Is The Pet Policy?
