Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the advantage of an Individual Lease?

A: With an Individual Lease, you are leasing a bedroom in a unit and share the common area with roommates. This gives the resident, and the parent, peace of mind knowing that the resident is only financially responsible for their bedroom space. Unlike conventional joint leases, you are not responsible for another roommate's rent.

Q: Will I need a Guarantor to lease an apartment?

A: To rent an apartment you must have a clean rental history and meet monthly income requirements. edge@Troy will accept a Guarantor (usually a parent or guardian) if the resident cannot meet the financial and credit qualifications. The Guarantor must meet the financial qualifications and is equally responsible and liable for the terms of the Individual Lease.

Q: What if I don't have a roommate?

A: edge@Troy offers a roommate matching service to help you find an appropriate roomate. We will ask for you to submit a Roommate Matching Assistance Form and will compare your preferences against other potential roommates then arrange potential roommate matches to contact each other.
