So you signed a new lease. Terrific!
Now you have rent payments to make. Usually you have to make your first rent payment, plus a security deposit, when you sign the lease.
You absolutely have to have those paid in full before we will turn over the keys to your new pad.
Here’s how it works: you are actually leasing the apartment for a period of approximately 365 days. You agreed to pay a specific amount (again, see your lease) for that entire period of time.
The entire amount could be paid before you move in. That would be AWESOME, so feel free to do that if you want. However, we allow you to make 12 equal monthly installments on that full amount.
