No appointment is necessary to tour our community, however it is always appreciated if you call ahead to make sure we are available to provide adequate time for you to tour and ask questions. Please arrive no later than one half hour prior to closing if you would like to tour the property. Everyone over 18 must have a valid photo ID to tour the community.

Application fees are $40 per person 18 and older occupying the apartment. You may pay these online by credit card, or in our office with money order or cashier’s check. All application fees are nonrefundable.

Rent is always due on or before the first of the month.

Rent is always due on the first and a $50 late fee is assessed on the 4th of every month (even Sundays and holidays).
9. How can I pay my rent?
You can pay rent by setting up your online account on our property website. This allows you to use a bank account or credit card to make payments. You can also pay with personal check, cashier’s check, or money order in our office. You may also drop payments in the drop box (to the left of the office door) after hours and on weekends.
10. Who do I write the rent checks out to?
You can make checks, money orders and cashier’s checks payable to Timber Ridge Apartments.
11. What kind of pets do you allow? How many pets may I have?
Up to 2 pets, cats or dogs, are allowed. Any number of pets living in the apartment will then require a one-time, nonrefundable $300 pet fee. Monthly pet rent is $30 per dog and $20 per cat. Breed restrictions apply, please contact the office.
12. If I get a job transfer, can I break the lease?
Yes, if the lease buy-out fee has been paid. A full calendar month’s notice is required before vacating your apartment, and the lease buy-out fee is one and a half times the rent amount. This applies for any reason other than active-duty military orders.

You may call the office, send an e-mail, or leave a message with the answering service. You may also submit work orders online if you are enrolled in our online services.
15. There is a person who might be staying with me for a while, is that permitted by the lease?
Yes, if someone is temporarily staying with you, please let the office know so we can accommodate for parking. If someone is permanently moving in, they will need to fill out an application to be added to your lease agreement.
16. I will be moving out. What do I need to do?
We require a calendar month written notice, which you are responsible through, prior to move-out. This is required regardless if the lease is ending or you are breaking your lease early. If you need to move-out at the end of your lease term, please remember to come in one month prior to the lease expiring to provide your written notice.

If you are locked out during business hours, you can come to the office to be let back in your apartment or garage.
