Frequently Asked Questions
What is the lease Length?
All leases are 5 months, then go month-to-month. You can shorten your lease, if preferred, by up to 3 months for an additional one-time rental payment. For a 4-month lease, you’d pay an extra $250 no later than at the time of move-in. A 3-month lease would be $500 up front. A 2-month lease would be $750 up front.
Do you have a preleasing option?
Yes, we offer a preleasing option for those who wish to reserve an aPodment® Suite more than 45 days from now. Click here for details.
How can I view an aPodment Unit?
Each month we try to hold several free open houses so you can see what aPodment® communities and units look like in person. And if you’ve already applied with us, you can schedule a private tour in a specific building or neighborhood as availability permits.
Is there wireless internet?
Superfast wireless internet (75 Mbps) is included in your rental price at nearly all of our buildings. Our Solana, Firenze, Terrazza, and Cielo buildings offer even faster 100 Mbps wired (Ethernet-hookup) internet for no extra fee. Pine North and South offer standard wireless internet in the rental price.
Do you allow pets?
No. We do not allow pets. Applicants can make a request for reasonable accommodation and a waiver of our no-pet policy by completing this form and submitting a note from their care provider that confirms the need for an assistance animal.
When should I start my search?
The best time to start searching is 20–30 days before your desired (1st of the month) move-in date. This is because residents are required by Washington state law to give no more than 20 days’ notice that they’re vacating. This notice falls on the 10th or 11th day of the month prior. Specific unit availabilities are generally determined by the 20-day notices and will be communicated to you by our leasing managers usually no later than the business day following the 12th of the month. If you’re searching more than 45 days before your desired move-in date, you may want to consider our preleasing option.
How big is an aPodment Suite?
Our aPodment® communities offer a wide selection of micro-studio suite layouts designed to address your unique requirements. Depending on the specific building you’re interested in, you can choose from standard and loft apartment residences that run from about 140–280 square feet.
What is a "move-in date"?
This is the date you wish to occupy the unit. All availabilities for Standard Leasing are for the upcoming first of the month. With a Short-Term Lease, you choose your start date and pay per day. If your desired move-in date is beyond the upcoming month, you may be interested in our preleasing option.
What is an "application date"?
This is the date your application is received by the Calhoun Property Management office. For example, if you submit your application on May 1st, you’ll be notified of available units before an applicant who submits theirs on May 2nd. If more than one application is submitted on a particular day, they are processed in the order they were received.
How do I find out if there is an available unit or request a tour?
Simply complete and submit the online application via the link on this web page. Our leasing managers base their schedules for viewing units that are opening on the application date, move-in date, and availability of aPodment® units.
Is laundry coin-operated?
Laundry is coin-operated at all buildings, but most also have an app for making mobile payments. Prices vary slightly by building.
What kitchen items are provided?
We provide cooking items: pots, pans, basic spoons and spatulas, knives, and cutting boards. Our residents must provide any small appliances and dishes needed for eating.
What are the neighbors in the building like?
This varies hugely by building and by neighborhood, and sometimes even by tower. Because of our locations, flexible leases, and proximity to schools, our residents often have drastically different schedules and tend to keep to themselves.
How do you handle bed cleanliness?
All of our mattresses have an outer cover to prevent pest infestations and to protect the mattress. If a mattress or cover is stained at move-out, however, it is replaced before the new resident moves in.
What size bed is provided?
All units come with a twin bed.
Do I have to keep the furnishings?
The fridge and closet unit must stay in the apartment. The complimentary bed, desk, and chair may be removed before move-in. We request that furniture arrangements be made when the move-in time is decided. If you want the furniture removed or brought back in to the apartment after you’ve moved in, there is a $75 fee.
Does the rent change once my lease goes month-to-month?
We reserve the right to modify the rent for monthly tenancies. However, this happens rarely.
Is there an onsite manager?
Yes, all buildings have an onsite Resident Manager (RM) available 24/7 to our residents.
