The Crossing at Santa Fe Apartments Parents FAQ

What should I know before my son/daughter chooses a new apartment home?

A lease is a basic agreement between your child and the owner of the community. The lease is legally binding and enforceable through the legal system. If they choose to move out before the end of the lease terms, the resident could still be responsible to pay the remainder of the lease agreement.

What deposits are required?

Generally, a deposit is $1000. This deposit could be waived if a guarantor also signed for the resident. If he/she fails to make payments on the apartment, the guarantor will be responsible to provide those payments. Deposits will be refunded after final inspections are completed less any damages to apartment or furnishings.
A guarantor must meet the following criteria: be 27 years of age or older, have good credit standing with a 600+ credit score, and gross income 3 times the rental amount monthly. The guarantor will also have to provide proof of income.

Is renters insurance required?

No, however it is encouraged. Renters insurance is a policy you can purchase to protect your personal property as the management/landlords is not responsible for replacement to tenants. Replacement of your belongings if they are damaged, lost, or stolen could be covered. The Crossing doesn’t not promote any specific insurance coverage company to use.

We suggest that the roommates have a discussion of boundaries immediately after moving in, even if they have known them for a long time. This will help with establishing guidelines for living together. We ask that roommates attempt to talk about any issues within the household prior to contacting the leasing office. If they are unable to resolve, the leasing team may be able to assist with the outcome on a case-by-case basis.
