Frequently Asked
  • Effective for all 2022-2023 leases, there are no longer any security deposits for any YA leases. There is now a flat administrative fee due at signing. 

For 2022-2023 and all future leases, YA has removed security deposits. The admin fee is a flat fee due at signing that allows YA to provide an individual tenant portal to all residents. This new fee is $200 per person. Single bedroom admin fees are $300.

  • Non-refundable admin fee of $200

  • ID/License

  • 50% of roommates present at signing

Each apartment has an allowance for the term of the lease. This amount is allocated from within the monthly rent and covers utility usage until that total amount is depleted.

  • Each roommate will receive one key on move-in day for the apartment and each apartment will receive one mailbox key.
  • Some apartments will also receive a security door key or elevator key, if applicable.
  • If locked out of the apartment during business hours a resident can call the office and a YA agent will unlock your apartment at no cost. Outside business hours a resident will need to contact their emergency maintenance number. 

The ONLY properties that allow pets are 102 E. Cypress, 701 N. Fell, 410 N. Main, and 917 W. Market. CATS and DOGS are the only species permitted. All residents who have a pet are required to pay a $500 pet fee, complete a pet permit, and meet all other conditions of the pet permit.

Any insurance company provides renters insurance. Cost will depend on the amount of coverage. Tenants may want to talk to parents about adding on home owners insurance.

Unless your lease states otherwise, rent is due on the first of the month and will be assessed a 10% fee if paid after the first.

  • To obtain a sublease, it is recommended that the resident should post the opening as many places as possible (ie. Craigslist, Facebook, etc.)
  • If you come in or call the office you can fill out a subleasing form with your information and that will be posted to the Young America website.
  • Once a sublease is found, there is a $200 subleasing fee (to be paid by current tenant or subleasee).
  • BOTH parties need to come to the office and fill out a Sublease Agreement saying all payments will be transferred to the subleasee, the dates payments will transfer and move-in date.
  • Subleasee will need to bring a security deposit and service fee and ID when they come to sign onto the lease.
  • Current residents security deposit will be returned within 30 to 40 days after the LEASE IS TERMINATED not after the person subleasing takes over.
  • You can call or come into the office to schedule a showing. They can be scheduled between 10am to 4:30pm Mon.-Fri. and 11am to 2:30pm on Saturdays.
  •  You can come to the office to meet a leasing agent who will lead the showing and take you to the properties.

Usually, showings take a half hour, but agents can work with your schedule.

When signing onto a joint lease, all parties are liable for each other’s payments unless all parent guarantee forms are signed and turned in.

Parent/guardian guarantee forms are sent home to a parent or guardian when a lease is signed. Each form must be signed and turned in to lessen the liability of the resident if a roommate fails to make payments on the lease. The forms must be received from ALL roommates or they are void.

If a person is looking to live in a certain property but does not have enough roommates to fill the apartment Young America offers a WE-FIND agreement that will place other customers who are in need of roommates. Note- Lessee does not have the option of choosing roommates or amount of roommates placed in the apartment.

If you have questions regarding the availability of a property, you can check the website which is updated frequently or call the office where we will be happy to assist you.
