Fees vary by property and are calculated based on the average rent of the property. There is a higher convenience fee associated with credit card transactions versus electronic checking or e-check transactions. We strongly encourage tenants to pay via electronic checking.

Traditional Lease Break: You must notify The Hamilton Company, in writing with 30 days or more notice, of your desire to terminate your lease early, as well as pay an administrative fee in the amount of ½ month rent. At that time, The Hamilton Company will list your apartment as available for re-letting, and will attempt to find a new resident. If/ when a new resident is identified, and a new lease is signed for the unit, the Landlord will consent to the termination of your lease. You are responsible for the rent and all lease terms until your unit is rented or your lease ends, whichever comes first.
Early Opt-Out: You must notify The Hamilton Company, in writing within 60 days notice, of your desire to terminate your lease early, as well as pay an administrative fee in the amount of two month’s rent. Once the fee and notice is received, the lease termination date shall be amended.

All roommates on the lease must agree to the changes by signing the Agreement, including anyone being removed from the lease. All roommates must also abide by the occupancy standards stated in the lease when doing a roommate change. Anyone over the age of 18 must complete the Rental Application and be approved before they are allowed to move in. Contact your Property Coordinator for more details and the Roommate Substitution Agreement paperwork. Fees of at least $100 may apply.

If you would like to paint the walls in your apartment, you must first get approval from the Maintenance Department. If approval is given, you must repaint all the walls using the original color when you move out, or charges will be applied to your account.

This money will be refunded to you when you return the can(s) of paint to the office, even if they are empty. You may also borrow paint at the same cost to touch up the paint inside your apartment.

Most properties have had 10% of the units tested and are negative for lead paint. According to the Massachusetts State Lead Law, any units built before 1978 must be tested for lead paint if a child under the age of 7 will reside in the unit full time. If we do not have a Lead Paint Test on file, we will have the test completed before you move in. If the test is positive, the unit will be de-leaded before you move in. The use of lead paint ceased after 1978, so any units built after that year will automatically be negative for lead paint.
