How do I apply for an apartment?

You can find instructions for applying to one of our apartments on the rental application page of our website.

What money is required to move in?

First month’s rent, last month’s rent and (if applicable) a full month security deposit are due at lease signing. The funds must be in the form of a money order or certified bank check. Unfortunately, we cannot accept personal checks for move-in funds.

Do you have any promotions or move-in specials?

We do occasionally offer specials, which vary depending on the season and availability. Contact your local site office to enquire.

Do you run credit checks?

Yes, we check the credit of all prospective residents during the application process, prior to move-in.

Do you offer short-term leases or rent month-to-month?

Most of our leases are one-year leases only. Occasionally we will offer a shorter term in order for the lease to end in the summer months. Please discuss this with the agent and/or Property Manager prior to applying for the unit.

Do you accept low-income housing vouchers?

We accept Section 8 Housing vouchers or certificates only.

Are pets allowed in your buildings?

Unfortunately, pets are not allowed in most of our buildings. However, pets are allowed at the following buildings: 601 Albany Street, Boston 160 East Berkeley Street, Boston Designated units at Dexter Park, 175-185 Freeman Street, in Brookline (2 pets maximum, 30 pound weight limit per pet) Additionally, Property Managers will sometimes make an exception for one cat. Please contact your local site office for permission or further details.

Are your apartments de-leaded?

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.
