Additional charges (damages, etc.)

A site visit is conducted when each tenant departs, or shortly thereafter. If it is discovered that the premises have not been left in satisfactory condition and/or if the apartment has been damaged extensively and/or if furniture is missing, the departing tenant will be held responsible, and a lump sum will be charged to his or her account. Charges will also be applied if the tenant fails to return access card(s), parking pass, room key(s), and mailbox key(s), along with any equipment that is borrowed and not returned upon departure.
