What is included in rent?

Rent includes your fully furnished unit, internet, pest control, and refuse services. We direct bill for electricity and water, splitting it evenly between all roommates residing in the unit.

Do I have to pay a security deposit?

No! Polo Club does not require a security deposit, as long as you have an approved guarantor. A guarantor is someone 27 years of age or older, has a credit score of 600 or higher, and is willing to sign a document agreeing to be financially responsible for the rent if the leaseholder is not able to pay. Most residents use a parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt, uncle, or family friend as a guarantor. Without a guarantor, the security deposit is $1,000.

Do my parents need to be with me to sign a lease?

No, but they are more than welcome to come if they like. In the state of Georgia, anyone 18 years of age or older is able to legally enter into a contract without parental consent. However, we highly recommend discussing your living plans with your parents before entering into a lease, especially if they are going to be financially supporting you.

What happens if the people I wanted to live with don’t sign?

No worries, we can roommate match you for the remaining spots in your apartment, or you can amend your lease to live in another floor plan if we have the availability.

Can I break my lease?

The only available way to terminate a lease is to find someone who can sublease your apartment. For more information contact the Leasing office.

What is your pet policy?

We are pet friendly with no breed restrictions up to 80 lbs. The pet fee is $350 per pet, and pet rent is $45/monthly per pet. All roommates must give consent before a pet is allowed to be added to the lease, and management approval must be given.

Are coed apartments available?

We do not roommate match for coed apartments. However, if you and your roommate lease together, we can place you in the same apartment.

When is move-in day?

How far away are various college campuses?
