When looking at Full Sail apartments it's of the utmost importance that you're completely familiar with the different lease types available to you. Going into an apartment hunt without knowledge of the different types of leases available can get you stuck in an agreement you're not really sure of which can easily cause you to be unhappy in your Full Sail apartment. Since there's not much you can do to get out of a lease you don't enjoy other than paying some hefty fees it's important that you familiarize yourself with the different leases Full Sail apartments have to offer.
Since many of the Full Sail apartments are populated with college students you'll find that the individual lease is quite popular in the area. Individual leases are perfect for college students because you're only responsible for yourself when you sign your lease. Meaning that even when living with roommates whether it's a 2 bedroom apartment or 4+ bedroom apartment you only have to worry about your share of the rent each month, and if they are short or don't pay at all you won't be impacted in any negative way. With an individual lease your rent usually covers your private bedroom, bathroom, and sometimes a sitting area along with your share of the common areas such as the living room, dining room, and kitchen.
Full Sail apartments also offer an abundance of fixed-term leases. With a fixed term lease you will agree to remain occupancy in your apartment for a certain amount of time that usually ranges from 1 to 2 years while paying a predetermined amount of rent. During your leasing period your rent won't fluctuate which can assist in helping you budget quite a bit. However, should you choose to leave before your lease is up you'll be required to pay some hefty fees for breaking said lease. Before signing a fixed-term lease I advise that you be completely sure in your choice of Full Sail apartments and have the financial means to pay your predetermined monthly rental rate each month for the duration of your lease.
A lesser seen lease throughout Full Sail apartments is the periodic lease. You might hear the periodic lease also be referred to as the month-to-month lease. With a periodic lease you don't have to agree to remain tenancy in your apartment for any significant amount of time. However, you won't be guaranteed a stable monthly rent. Your rent can fluctuate month to month as the landlord sees fit. Before choosing to leave your periodic lease you only have to give about 15-30 days of notice most of the time. Periodic leases are ideal for those who aren't positive in their choice of apartments or don't plan on being in the area for much longer.
You will also encounter all-inclusive leases throughout the Full Sail area. This means that your monthly rent not only covers your stay in your Full Sail apartment but it also includes some extras like electricity, water, cable TV, internet access, and trash removal. Perfect for those who are bad at budgeting expenses or would just prefer to have a few of their monthly bills bundled together.
Full Sail apartments definitely offer a wide array of choices when it comes to the different leases available to their residents. It may seem overwhelming but once you've decided what type of lease you want finding a new apartment can be a breeze!
