Each individual is counted as a person, regardless of age. If the household increases to exceed the maximum occupancy during tenancy, our policy is to allow the household to remain in the apartment through the end of their current lease or 4 months, whichever is longer. At the end of that period, the household will be expected to move to a larger apartment, if one is available, or off the property. This is not applicable to the addition of unauthorized occupants.  Adding unauthorized occupants without first obtaining management approval is considered a violation of the lease agreement.

Any information that is found to be false misleading, or erroneous will result in immediate application denial.
