Guarantor FAQs

1. Why am I being asked to provide my social security number?

RedStone Property Management requires all guarantors to provide a full U.S. issued Social Security Number for credit/collection purposes. We cannot and will not process applications without a full U.S. Issued Social Security Number.

2. Is there an application fee? What is the administrative fee?

In lieu of individual application fees, RedStone charges a one time $75 Administrative Fee per student for processing of applications and Guaranty paperwork. This fee will be charged along with the security deposit after an apartment/house is assigned.

3. How much is the security deposit and how do I pay it?

Security deposits are equivalent to one full month’s rent (Based on the total rent for the apartment). Once an apartment/house is assigned, we will create and send out the Residential Lease Agreement along with a link to our online tenant portal You can make payment for the security deposit and any future rents.

4. What are the lease terms?

RedStone’s standard student lease is an 11 or 12 month term . Should students opt to renew, the lease will automatically default to a 12 month lease. Lease start dates can vary depending on the complex/house your student is assigned to. Click here for a sample agreement.

Room/Apartment takeovers, commonly referred to as “passdowns” or “sublets” are exceptions to RedStone’s standard lease terms. These lease dates will be based on the agreed upon time frame between the current tenant and the proposed sublet; typically done by semester. RedStone will facilitate all required paperwork for this process. *Please refer to #5

5. My student plans to go abroad for a semester, can they have a sublet?

RedStone’s lease agreement does not permit traditional subletting. Any “sublet” students and their guarantors are required to complete the standard student application process. A revised lease must be signed by all residing roommates reflecting the change in roommates for the agreed upon term. The “sublet” will pay rent directly to RedStone.

  • Apartments/houses are NOT furnished. Standard appliances, washer/dryer and blinds are provided. Students are responsible for all furniture and furnishings.
  • Utilities, with the exception of cable and internet services, are included for apartments only.
