Renewals occur when one or more of the current residents of an apartment sign the lease for the same unit for the following year. Residents understand that between the two lease periods, JSM will not assess the apartment for damages nor clean the apartment. JSM will inform our current residents of the new rent rates as early as move-in day so that residents can begin renewal discussions as soon as possible.
Current residents wanting to renew for the following year must call the JSM office to request that a renewal lease be emailed to the apartment. Current residents must inform JSM of all names of people who will be signing the renewal lease. The minimum number of people required to sign the lease is four for a 5-bedroom, three for a 4-bedroom, two for a 3-bedroom and one for a 2-bedroom.
Prospective residents who are not currently JSM residents must submit an online credit application before requesting a mailed renewal lease.
Renewing residents can begin calling to request the emailed renewal lease on the start date of their current lease but must submit their request no later than the deadline provided. Upon receipt, residents will be required to sign the lease and any accompanying paperwork, include check(s) for the balance of the security deposit and complete the online lease signing by the deadline specified in the cover letter accompanying the emailed lease. Hard copies of emailed leases can be acquired at the JSM office.
