What does it mean to have an individual lease?
Individual leasing means that each person is only responsible for their portion of the common areas and their bedroom. If your roommate ends up not coming back for the spring semester, you’re not responsible for their payment.
Is a cosigner for the lease required?
Yes, a parent or guardian over the age of 18 must submit all completed guarantor paperwork within 14 days of a signed lease agreement and must pass a credit check.
Is there parking on site? Do I have to pay to park?
Bradford Oaks offers free parking in front of your apartment.
Do you have a roommate matching system?
Yes, we offer a roommate matching system. If you don’t have anyone in mind that you would like to live with, let us match you up with someone! There is a Roommate Matching Sheet that you will fill out to let us know more about what you’re looking for in a roommate. Then, we spend weeks in the summer figuring out the best match for you based on that information.
Can I have overnight guests?
Yes. As long as you have discussed your guest's stay with your roommates, you can have overnight guests for up to three consecutive nights. Please make sure guests park in guest parking.
Are Cable & Internet included?
No, Internet & Cable are set up by the resident.
When is my rent due and how do I pay it?
Rent is always due the 1st of the month and you can...
- Pay with a personal check, money order, or cashier’s check.
- Pay with a credit card online through resident portal. Service fee may apply.*
- Have your financial institution automatically deduct rent from your bank account each month to send in payment.
- Pay with check online using your resident portal free of charge!
Can I request a specific room or building?
Absolutely! We will try our best to accommodate all special requests. These requests can be made on the resident profile card as well as the application. Keep in mind that we operate on a first come first serve basis at Bradford Oaks so it is not always possible to grant you all of your preferences!
Do you allow pets?
We have a limited number of pet friendly units available. Please call our office for availability and size and breed restrictions.
Are the apartments furnished?
We do not offer furnished units.
Is there insurance coverage in the event of a fire, theft or natural causes? Does my lease provide coverage for my belongings?
Our insurance will not cover your personal belongings. We suggest getting renter’s insurance for this reason. It is generally inexpensive and will cover your personal belongings if something were to happen.
What if I don't have a guarantor?
No Guarantor? No Problem, we offer Leap as an option! Leap is a quick and easy process that fills in for a guarantor or parent co-signer. Leap's application is free online and takes around 5 minutes to complete. You will get a conditional decision within 30 minutes during normal business hours. Click here to apply or contact the office for more information.
Are leases for families with children available?
Yes. The Bradford Oaks' policy is included here for family occupants with a child(ren) under the age of eighteen (18) who is domiciled with (i) at least one parent, legal guardian, or another person having legal custody of the child under the age of eighteen, or (ii) the designee of such parent or other person having such custody, with written permission of such parent or other person. For family households with children, all household members age eighteen (18) or older must: (A) complete an application, and (B) sign the lease as a Resident. For family households with children under the age of eighteen (18), at least two (2) people will be permitted to occupy a single bedroom. If a family household with children under the age of eighteen (18) requires additional occupancy per bedroom, additional occupants may be allowed on a case-by-case basis based on factors including, but not limited to, the size of the bedroom(s) and unit, age of the children, configuration of the unit, any physical limitations of Bradford Oaks, and local occupancy codes. If the child occupant reaches eighteen (18) years of age during the term of the lease, the lease will be allowed to complete its term, but renewal will only be offered in compliance with the occupancy policy as stated. Child occupants who are under twenty-four (24) months at the time the lease is signed will not be counted under the occupancy policy for purposes of maximum occupancy but will be counted for subsequent leases if they reach the age of twenty-four (24) months during the term of the lease. The Landlord has the right to lease any empty bedroom(s). Families should contact the office directly regarding the application for family households, as this process varies from individual leasing and the required forms are not all available electronically.
