Is The Rental Office Open?

Our current in-person office hours are Monday through Friday from 9:30 am to 5:30 pm. To promote the health and safety of our communities, face coverings are required for guests and associates in all indoor public areas.

You will also see hand sanitizer dispensers and extra cleaning/sanitizing happening throughout our community common spaces.

To comply with CDC and local government recommendations, some amenities are limited to ensure the wellness of our community.

Special Office Hours and Protocols During Move-In

Please note, beginning September our offices will be open by appointment only to ensure social distancing while we welcome new households to our community.

For move-in appointments, we ask that only members of your immediate household enter the office with you and that anyone not on your lease please wait outside of the building. We hope that these procedures will give added peace of mind as we all work together to ensure the wellness of our community.

For added sanitization, our teams are fogging apartments with electro-hygiene sprayers to help ensure high-touch areas receive extra attention after each household moves out.

In preparation for welcoming you to your new apartment, your apartment will also be deep cleaned by our professional cleaners and have air filters changed.

What forms of Payment Are Being Accepted at This Time?

To continue to support contactless payments the easiest way to pay your rent is via your online resident portal located on your property’s website:

This will allow you to pay with a linked bank account (with no additional charge) or via credit or debit card (with an added fee from the payment company.) Tandem will cover this fee on your behalf for the month of September. Please stay tuned for future updates.

Please contact your management office for the link and user ID for creating your RentCafe account.

If you are unable to pay rent via your resident portal and prefer to pay with a check or money order, you may do so via our management office.

Maintenance Requests

Please know that we remain dedicated to providing you with an apartment that meets our high standards. Our commitment to extra cleaning and additional sanitizing of our apartment interiors for the safety and peace of mind of both our residents and our employees this year is paramount.

For items that could not be addressed as usual during our move-out and move-in process, we are taking note of these and will be in communication regarding addressing them safely in the days following your move-in. If you haven’t received notice regarding an item or if anything needs immediate attention, please just let us know.

Should we need to enter your apartment home to complete any of your maintenance needs we ask that you wear a mask. If any of your household members are sick please reschedule an appointment for a later date.

We are here to help and keep us all safe during COVID-19. Thank you for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time.
