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
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
