Our leasing process is fairly simple and straightforward. We have
found that the standard lease provided to us from the University
of Michigan coupled with a short one page addendum is sufficient
for our leases. By using the UofM lease, you can be sure that the
lease is legal and concise. Our addendum is also designed to provide
tips as to how we hope our properties will be cared for. We developed
this addendum to help guide residents while living in our properties.
It lays out rules that we feel are essential to ensuring a safe,
damage-free lease term. Please refer to the links below to see both
of the aforementioned forms.

One of the most common questions we get is concerning subleasing.
All of our leases our 12 month leases and begin in either May or
September. Sub-leasing is a common practice and is allowed at our
properties with our written permission. We reserve the right to
refuse a particular agreement if we feel it is in the best interest
of us or the property. All sub-leases must be facilitated through
the use of a sub-lease agreement and the exchange of a security
deposit between the primary and sub tenants. We are happy to provide
some guidance towards the successful completion of a sublet but
all responsibilty for finding and signing a sub-tenant is the reponsibilty
of the primary tenant. Below are links to the sub-lease agreement
that is available from the UofM
Off-campus Housing office as well as a sub-leasing guideline.

to some common questions.
