Can I move in early?
No. Our insurance carrier will not allow entry into the house before the move in dates stated in the lease agreement.
When is my rent due?
Rent is due in two installments August 1st and December 1st. We will notify you 30 days in advance via email. Any postmarked later than 5 days after rent is due (i.e. August 5th and December 5th) will be charged a late fee of $5 per day there after.
I receive Financial Aid and its not disbursed until after my rent is due, will I be charged late fees?
You will need to notify MPR in writing that you receive Financial Aid and provide us with a copy of your reward letter from the Bursur’s Office. We are aware of disbursement dates and your rent is due the following week. For instance, if the disbursement date is August 12th then your rent is due on August 19th. You will not be charged any late fees as long as we receive proof of your Financial Aid eligibility prior to August 1st and we receive your rent no later than August 19th.
Do I need insurance coverage?
That is a personal choice. However it is highly recommended that you obtain renter’s insurance and it can usually be obtained for minimal cost through your parent’s homeowner’s insurance.
Are utilities included?
No, the utilities need to be place in a tenant’s name and set up prior to move in. You will receive a move in packet that includes the contact information for all local utility companies.
What I need to do to renew my lease?
Lease Agreements are not automatically renewable. Current tenants who are in good standing with their landlords and the property management company are eligible to sign a new lease agreement for the premises they are currently leasing. All eligibility requirements set forth in THE LEASING POLICY FOR STUDENT RENTALS are applicable when signing a new Lease Agreement excepting for the time schedule. Appointments for current tenants to sign a new Lease Agreement can be made anytime after your move in date by calling Miami Poplar Rentals at 513-461-3291. Current tenants have until 5:00 PM on Thursday, August 26, 2011 to schedule their appointment to sign a new lease agreement.
