Frequently Asked Questions
General Information Moving to Jacksonville
What are the leasing options?

The standard lease term is August 1 through July 31. Two options for prematurely ending a lease are available for tenants who must depart prior to lease expiration at July 31. Monitor this website or phone 256-689-1632 to verify any unexpected availability. To renew a lease for an upcoming lease term beginning August 1, an existing tenant must sign a new lease by end-of-day May 31. Any apartment occupied by a tenant not signing a renewal lease prior to June 1, becomes available June 1 to be viewed and applied for, with approved occupancy following on or about August 1. All vacated apartments are meticulously reconditioned before a new tenant takes possession.

Do you have an apartment available for lease?

Existing as well as known, upcoming vacancies are posted on this website's Availabilities page, in our business phone recording at 256-689-1632, and by Apartment Available signage on the property.

Who manages your apartments?

Owners Eric and Beverly Love live nearby and perform all aspects of managing the property. We do not utilize any property management agency. Either Eric or Beverly can be seen or phoned at most any daytime hour Monday through Sunday. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week including all Holidays for any emergency or other urgent matter.

What about security?

Each apartment has its own hard-wired security system, including custom, undisclosed security features built into each door and window. Other proprietary security measures are in effect on this property and so advised on exterior signage. Additionally, owner Eric Love is an inactive duty Reserve Deputy, badge #85, with this county's Sheriff's Office. We request and welcome the support of all area law enforcement agencies as needed.

What should I bring to the viewing appointment?

Some form of identification such as a valid driver?s license or other government issued picture ID.

What are the requirements to lease an apartment?

View the property in person. If interested after viewing, review and discuss the Lease, Rules and Regulations and other policies. Submit a written Application along with the Security Deposit and Application Fee. For approval, all Applicants must meet the written requirements as stated in our Leasing Standards document, which includes credit and background checks.

When can I see an apartment?

Any mid-year vacancy can be viewed by appointment, generally during daytime hours Monday through Saturday, or Sunday afternoon. Our peak leasing season begins June 1 and lasts until all units are leased for the coming lease year of August 1 through July 31. On or before May 31 of each year, all existing Tenants remaining for another lease term, must have signed their renewal lease. Beginning the next day, June 1, any apartment on which the renewal lease has not been signed becomes immediately available for viewing and leasing with occupancy on the following August 1.

What is your typical tenant mix?

Most years we seem to have fairly equal numbers of working adults and college students who want a quiet place to live, although the mix varies year to year. We often have retired or semi-retired tenants. Rarely do we have tenants with children, possibly because we have little area for children to play. Individuals from all walks of life are welcome to apply. Since 1963, we continue to lease without regard to age, gender, race, color, religion, sexual orientation, national origin or familial status.

What about utility costs?

Utility costs are paid by the tenant. Any utility expense can vary widely due to tenant practices; however, costs here can be minimized by taking advantage of our cost-saving features. Floors, ceilings, windows, doors, walls are well insulated. All appliances have very favorable efficiency ratings. Each apartment is primarily heated and cooled by an electric heat pump, with supplemental heating from a non-vented, gas log fireplace. The gas logs are operated without electric power. Additional cooling is provided by ceiling fans in all bedrooms, dens and in Building 1 bathrooms. Some Building 2 and apartment 1-A tenants have had annual electric bills average as low as $65 to $80 monthly. Larger apartments in Building 1 are expectedly somewhat higher. Monthly electricity bills are generally higher than average in Winter/Summer, but lower in Spring/Fall. The monthly bill for water, gas, sewerage and trash pick-up for most units is about $35 to $50. Abundant insulation, quality appliances, and supplemental sources of both heating and cooling, give our tenants the ability to minimize utility costs.

Can I lease for less than one year?

Generally, we only lease for one year terms; however, for a variety of reasons, apartments occasionally become available during the usual lease term of August 1 through July 31. Depending on the length of time remaining to the lease year-end, a partial-year lease may be possible.

Do you have rules and how strict are they?

Our rules and policies are clearly written and designed to maximize tenant safety, comfort and convenience. Activity and noise levels are reasonable and, according to many, comparable to a single family home. It?s easy to sleep, work or study here, particularly between 10 PM and 7 AM, seven days a week. Full and complete use of an apartment and grounds as agreed is encouraged; however, no activity or use can either endanger or unreasonably disturb any tenant.

Do you allow pets?

We love animals and have pets ourselves; however, only approved pets are allowed after payment of an additional 1,000.00 deposit. Repairs to these apartments are often more costly due to the higher quality of amenities. Also, the cost of removing pet allergens for future tenants is a contributing factor to this policy.

How do I find your property?
