Reassign Your Contract

Looking To Reassign Your Contract?

Getting Started

Follow these simple steps to begin the process of reassigning your housing contract to another person.

  1. Locate a potential candidate. You will be responsible to locate the individual whom you would like to take over your contract.
  2. Fully complete an Assignment Intent Form.  You must sign an Assignment Intent Form before we can start the reassignment process. To receive this form, contact the leasing office and one of our Manager’s will be able to generate this document to your Resident Portal for you to sign.
  3. Pay the assignment fee. The Non-refundable assignment fee will need to be paid when completing your signature on the Assignment Intent Form.  This fee can be paid in office with a personal check or online through your Resident Portal, using one of the approved payment methods.
  4. Have the incoming resident apply. The individual who is taking over your contract must apply and be approved before your reassignment is completed.


Once the incoming resident is approved in our system, the following steps will need to be verified before we can facilitate your reassignment:

  1. You must have a current balance of $0. When moving out, if your account has a balance, it must be paid before we are allowed to accept your keys. Your takeover is not allowed to move in until your balance is paid off, including rent payments.
  2. All forms and fees are submitted and paid. All forms must be completed to allow your takeover to move in. If a fee is unpaid, your takeover will be unable to move in.
  3. You must turn in keys, and an inspection of your unit will be completed by our office. Please note, you will need to coordinate your move-out date based on your takeover move-in date. Our maintenance staff needs 5 business days, not including weekends, to prepare the room and make it ready.


Please note: When securing a potential candidate, the date of turnover must be at least 5 days prior to the start date of the new resident’s desired move-in date.
