There is a per security deposit that ranges from $500 to $700 depending on the size of the unit. This additional deposit is on top of the normal security deposit that is equal to one months rent. There is also a pet agreement that tenants must sign if they wish to have a pet in their unit. The agreement gives the management team recourse if pets are disturbing other tenants.

A: Due to the high demand for units at the North Dam Mill we keep a waiting list. The list gives us the contact information so that we can contact interested parties as soon as we learn of about a unit opening up. We will contact everyone on the list that has expressed interest in the unit type that is coming available. We will show the unit to any interested party. From there we will take applications and choose the most qualified applicant. The length of time you have been on the list is factored into the decision making process.
A: We do not have subsidized housing. All of our apartment units are market-rate apartments. There is also no maximum on the amount of income a tenant can make.
